Bringing the mind into the heart, RamDev elucidates how to let go of the ego and surrender into beingness.

Check out Ram Dev’s new online course, A Practical Guide to Freedom: The Stages of Awakening, where you will come away with the wisdom and practices to integrate and embody the stages of the spiritual path so you can begin to surrender into the boundless nature of the heart.

“Right in front of you, right now in this moment, all around you and inside of you and everywhere is the object of devotion, is the open heart, which is going to be unavailable if you are not centered enough.” – RamDev Dale Borglum

In this episode, RamDev teaches on:
  • Living out concepts after we understand them
  • Keeping our heart open through all of life’s mundane moments
  • Separating from the chaos of the world and having an objective experience
  • How a rigid attachment to the ego prevents progress in our practice
  • The breath as an expression of pure wholeness
  • Having enough trust to surrender into centeredness
  • Dropping into the heart just as we would the breath
  • Seeing God in everyone without the “I” judging everything
  • The felt sense of pure awareness moment to moment
  • Using devotional practices as a way to realize non-duality

“Can we begin to have a more compassionate relationship with the ‘I’, the wrong use of the ‘I’ that’s getting in the way all of the time? It’s not a civil war…it’s the surrender of the outside doer into the felt experience of standing in front of the invisible lord.” – RamDev Dale Borglum
