    In Be Love Now, Ram Dass shares what he has learned in his remarkable four-decade-long spiritual journey. Through timeless teaching stories, compelling and often humorous personal anecdotes, and soul-stirring insights, Ram Dass tracks the stages of his own awakening in his trademark down-to-earth style.

    alan says: "Ram Dass great/ narrater close to terrible"
    "Hippy dippy sillyness"
    Overall

    I am a skeptic so this book was not meant for me. I was open to hearing about this lifestyle but the descriptions did not sell me.

    The stories are interesting and would be world shattering (gurus curing blindness and disease) if there were any sort of proof to them. We are supposed to believe very fantastical stories about these gurus based on heresay. Heresay provided by people on psychedelic drugs. And to be completely honest, many of the gurus kind of sound like delusional a-holes.

    That's not to say, the book is completely without merit. I think the concept of stripping away your ego and living in the moment is very important and relevant. The small portion where Ram Dass describes going back home and dealing with the "real world" after his experiences in India was the most interesting part of the book. I think there could have been very useful insight there but it was a very short section.

    If you already buy into this philosophy you will probably eat this up. But if you are a skeptic just curious about other lifestyles it will not change your mind.
