As Ram Dass has repeatedly stated “Be here now. Whatever path you’re on, that’s your fucking path to enlightenment.”
Ok, so maybe he verbally expressed only the first half of the above quote.
However, my personal sense/interpretation/hallucination is that he could’ve said the the second half as well.
We get a lot of questions about how to deal with desires when you’re attempting to be on a “spiritual path”.
Of course, our standard answers are:
“Why would you be asking us?
How the fuck would we know?”
All I can do is share with you my experiences and my best guesses. Consider this your disclaimer.
Desires and The Path to Enlightenment
Desires are part of the human experience. Assuming that you’re part of the human species, you’re gonna have ’em.
