In this fascinating transcribed excerpt from Consciousness, Aging and the New Millenium, Ram Dass -- beloved teacher and author of the seminal work Be Here Now -- explains to workshop attendees how absolutely any experience, even driving a car, can be used to expand awareness and awaken spiritually.
Now, what I’m talking about is taking something for which you have certain cultural stereotypic responses to. About golf, for example. Now you may… I’m not saying its negative or anything. You just have them. You have some. You know the way the culture views golf. Then I’m showing you the way I’m taking that experience and I’m using it in a certain way in my consciousness to transform my consciousness. In other words, I’m using my life experiences as vehicles through which I can awaken spiritually into other levels of awareness.
Recorded in 1996 in New Jersey.

Great Ram Dass!
Ram Dass has been my spiritual teacher through his lectures, books and videos. Who better to teach us about conscious aging than Ram Dass! This episode, as usual, brings great insight and clarity about getting older. Highly recommend it.
excellent, heart warming, inspiring
2 hours well spent...full of easy to listen to ruminations about aging and enjoying it. Thank you, Ram Das.
This is as relevant today as it was in 1996.
