Ram Dass: the problem of belief

People ask, “Do you believe that there is continuity after death?”

And I say, “I don’t believe it. It just is.”

That offends my scientific friends no end. But belief is something you hold on to with your intellect. My faith in the continuity of life has gone way beyond the intellect. Belief is a problem because it is rooted in the mind, and in the process of death, the mind crumbles. Faith, consciousness, and awareness all exist beyond the thinking mind.
