Where to find RAM DASS:


when you witness a dark thought
a dark thought that isn’t going to get you anywhere
you witness it
and love it
you love your dark thoughts

remember the witness is part of the soul
and the soul loves everything

every thing
not every being, but every thing

loves the clouds
and the trees
and the fish
and the animals

and that love coalesces the universe

the oneness of the universe is love
