Ram Dass quotes :
Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It's not 'I love you' for this or that reason, not 'I love you if you love me.' It's love for no reason, love without an object.Ram Dass
As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love, and then the barriers between people, between religions, between nations will begin to fall. Yes, we have to beat down the separateness.Ram Dass
It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.Ram Dass
