Those who know will understand

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would. To the normal waking person it may seem strange, but when accompanied by a mushroom or two you definitely get it.

What other book might you compare The Original Be Here Now Talks to and why?

There is no comparing this level of wisdom to anything. Ram Dass see's existence for what it is, and lays some heavy ideas on you.

Which scene was your favorite?

Every last second. Every ego shattering, beautiful sentence.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definately, though if you were to listen to it in one sitting, you may not absorb the amazing amount of wisdom he displays.

Any additional comments?

This was obviously made in the 60's or 70's when use of psychedelics were very popular. My normal consciousness couldn't quite grasp it, but after eating one special mushroom containing (censored) I fully understood everything he was trying to say, and it absolutely changed my life. It made me realize how silly the ego is. It's not as big as we think it is, and you don't have to get rid of it. The Ego serves a purpose in the physical world, however, nothing beyond that. It is when you get lost in the illusion of ego that you run into issues.

Amazing book

love how RAM Dass brings lightness to all of it, how he combined all levels of Creation right up to the beyond. Finały after many years of trying to comprehend this ladder towards inside I can say that I get it, and with his help I Am able to make it way simpler.
