Overview

Ram Dass has always been a master of the one-liner. Here is the nitty-gritty by the author of Be Here Now—more than 200 penetrating observations and pithy spiritual instructions on such topics as How It All Is, Love and Devotion, Suffering, Aging, Planes of Consciousness, Death and Dying, Service and Compassion, Psychedelics, Social Awareness, and Liberation.

“This book is a kind of spiritual brandy, a distillation of the lectures I’ve given over the course of the past decade or so. These quotes are the little “aha!” moments, the cameos that have been served up out of our collective consciousness from time to time that seem to summarize something about our human journey. I think of this book as something you might have next to the coffeepot to pick up in the morning, or as something you might tuck into your backpack to pull out during your bus ride to work, in order to reframe the way you look at your day.” —Ram Dass

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Dass, a spiritual leader from the '60s and '70s and author of the psychedelic Be Here Now as well as the recent, wryly titled Still Here (Dass suffered a stroke several years ago), offers "a kind of spiritual brandy, a distillation of the lectures I've given...the little 'aha' moments...that have been served up out of our collective consciousness from time to time that seem to summarize something about our human journey." Divided into thematic segments (including How It All Is, Love and Devotion, Spiritual Practice, Suffering, Aging, The Guru and Psychedelics), the book contains more than 200 of Dass's pearls of wisdom: "Meditation is watching the itch instead of scratching it"; "Humor is the ability to see one reality from the perspective of another"; and "Don't take yourself so personally"; plus insights into his own character: one "one liner" reads, "I use medical maijuana for the pain and spasticity associated with my stroke. While simple, Dass's aphorisms aren't superficial. There is real wisdom here, and depth, summarizing a lifetime of spiritual seeking. This volume will make a great gift book for anyone who hankers for the truth. First serial to Tricycle. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

    One-Liners is pretty shallow.

    Yes, they are one-liners, and as such the author does not elucidate on any of of his ideas. It may be a feel-good book to some, but I found it trite and not worth my time. The chapter on Death was especially shallow, and the chapter on hallucinogenic drugs shows just how little the author has to offer.
