Contemplations from Ram Dass

Editor’s Note:  This week, we launch the new featured selection of the Patheos Book Club: Be Love Now, by Ram Dass.  In the coming weeks, we’ll be posting reflections from a variety of bloggers about the book and “the path of the heart” that has been Dass’ spiritual journey. Today, we share some contemplations from Ram Dass as a way of introducing this month’s featured book.

Attend to keeping my heart open. Remember what Kabir said- “Do what you do with another human being, but never put them out of your heart.”

Honor my intuitive heart and give it space and respect so that it provides a real balance for my intellect.

Quiet my mind. Free up my awareness so that it is not at the reactive mercy of each passing thought. Remember: “Quiteness is Master of the Deed.”

Listen. Listen with non-judging non-craving awareness to hear clearly.

Align my actions with my deepest truth. Stay conscious of the ways in which my life lacks integrity- economically, socially, politically, personally and philosophically- with what I know to be the deepest truth.

Re-consecrate my self again and always so that my actions will be an offering to God by whatever name. Remember the bottom line: I took birth in order to awaken out of the illusion of separateness. All of this stuff of life is the curriculum. Stop complaining and enjoy!

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    I must convey my love for your kindness giving support to men and women who need help on this important topic. Your personal commitment to getting the solution up and down was particularly powerful and has continually helped women much like me to achieve their targets. Your new warm and helpful advice means so much to me and even more to my fellow workers. Best wishes; from everyone of us.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
