    love is not a limited resource, by loving another with all your heart and all your energy, you are bringing love into your life, if you allow it

    i think your confused. without being bias, homosexuality is not natural, its part of the very apparatus of mental illness, i dont hate gay people.
    do your research.
    2 men cannot conceive a baby, nor can they properly have sex with each other, the anus is not a sexual organ like the penis or vagina.
    they have not choosen to be gay, they just are. they actually hold female hormones in there brain.

  3. @bmarchi1 “Forgive them for they know not what they do.”
    He does not have the consciousness necessary to realize the ‘evil’ and ‘hatred’ that he is setting upon others. If you grew up in the environment that he was in with the same amount of consciousness, you would have done and thought the exact same thing. Forgive him, and forgive all because everyone will reach the path eventually.

  4. But how is it fair to have all of that love for somebody and for them to not feel anything back for you? Esp when there was an understanding that love was there? It takes energy to love someone and if there is a lot of energy being spent at one place more than others, I for one would like to see or feel the “fruits of my labor”. That’s how I see it…

  5. At first when I opened this link, stretching in my room, never heard of Ram Dass before… The link just opened up and I thought it was playing, but it was on pause. I expected words to come out, but I thought to myself, I should feel love regardless, without the conversation. I tricked myself into seeing a deeper meaning into the title 🙂

  6. @selflessmind I am going through that same thing with a very angry wife. I tell her I love her and she just smiles at me and obviously thinks of all the things she thinks is wrong in our relationship. But why am I loving her.. not to get it in return. I just love her. So I have become contented with loving others and feeling that love in my heart and it has nothing to do with how they feel. Returned or not to love is love.. it is great to love without expectation. You are not alone. keep it up

  8. Wow, Ram Das really helps. My girlfriend is sometimes a very mean person and I understand that it is because of personal issues. Since I understand, I let it slide but the way she is still hurts my feelings. Ram Das helped me to realize that it’s okay if the person does not react to your love for them in the way you may hope for. It will all work out in time.

  9. hmm i never thought about this…i always expected that if i love someone and give them my love, it is natural to be loved back, but it doesn’t work like that, i didn’t realize it so i let that hurt me. so silly of me…

  10. My hurt comes from attachment. “Why didn’t she love me?” “How could she do that to me?” I need a change in perspective.

  11. Rant Videos obviously has some pain or frustration and is looking for attention.

  13. Imagine just do the demands that you are demanded, and live in light happily ever after !

  14. The ego only conceives of love as demanding of someone and expecting the demands to be met. The opposite is expecting the demands not to be met. But nowhere in the rulebook does it allow for simply not having demands at all.

    Any relationship (lover, coworker, anything) must be founded upon demands, for the relationship is defined by each person’s role, which is in turn defined by what is expected from him. The sudden realization that demands are not even necessary is worthy of gratitude.

  15. I think some of those responding to this are confusing love and sex. Ram Dass is talking about love, not about sex, not about lovers, but about pure love of one soul for another. This has nothing to do with sexual orientation or anything else physical. (from a 50 year old woman who has been actively learning from Ram Dass’ works for over 20 years)

  16. I don’t think you should classify “GAY”S like they all do it in a bathroom! Being gay, is the same as being straight, in the sense that people are people, doesnt matter what sex you are attracted to….categorizing is very judgmental of you.
