Spread Love (21:45) – Ram Dass and Larry talk about what unity really looks like and ways we can practice social activism while overcoming what separates us.

“You can march the outward march in protest, but you have to march in protest while recognizing your soul and the souls of your enemies. I can get into a protest and radiate from me peace and love so that the other people around me realize that same thing. That is what our charge is in that. To put it baldly – spread love.” – Ram Dass
