Ram Dass ~~~This has been my experience. I have faith in myself that I am somehow healing through and despite this loss.--my former beliefs led me to darkness. I prayed for naught, as though prayer was a cosmic joke.
Ram Dass wrote a book named "Be Here Now." The book, in the was one of the top books ever sold. Werner Erhard, the creator of the EST/Landmark Forums even made classes based on Ram Dass' words and teaching. The class called Be Here Now.
