Not many words from me here, just an invitation to a simple realization ...



Free from fear ... no one, including your mind, can control you.

Cheers.

Incredible!

Allan Watts was an amazing dude. He was right on it. His voice makes me feel really relaxed and in ease. Even though he is speaking very interesting words I am more attracted to his tone then anything else.

The music in the video kinda made it hard to understand his last words though.

This is one of my favorite Alan Watts quotes:

“Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.”

For those who may not be familiar with Alan Watts ...


Alan Wilson Watts (January 6, 1915 – November 16, 1973) was a British philosopher, writer, speaker, who held both a master's degree in theology and a doctorate of divinity. Famous for his research on comparative religion, he was best known as an interpreter and popularizer of Asian philosophies for a Western audience.

He wrote more than 25 books and numerous articles on subjects such as personal identity, the true nature of reality, higher consciousness, meaning of life, concepts and images of God and the non-material pursuit of happiness. In his books he relates his experience to scientific knowledge and to the teachings of Eastern and Western religion and philosophy. wiki

"What's all the trouble about?" Really great. He seems like such a laid back dude.

I would give up time every single weekend to listen to a person like that talk for an hour or two. Throw in some group singing and maybe a nice little chow session where everyone provides a main or a side? Yeah I could dig it. Ill bring the brownies.

Oh man, how cool would that be?


Thankfully he left us his voice and words to befriend.

And others have picked up where he left of ...

Same pointers, same liberation, but none of them as funny or free.
