Alan Watts

35 posts in this topic

As many of you know, Alan Watts was a very wise philosopher. Personally, I've benefited a great deal by listening to him. I don't know of many teachers/philosophers that get right down to it like he does.

You can type Alan Watts into youtube, and almost anything that comes up will be pure golden nuggets of profound wisdom.

It wouldn't be right to not mention the official holders of his IP, and curators of his work, the Alan Watts organization https://www.alanwatts.org/ 

Please add your favourite Alan Watts videos and so on here!

@Serotoninluv Thank you for sharing.

This one had an effect on me a while back.

My favorite video on Falling in Love. It captures the depth of one of my romances. . . 

 

love is an act of surrender

total abandonment

I give myself

whatever arises, love that

This is my favorite Alan Watts' lecture

 


The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

 Cant get enough of his lectures !

Agreed, I've listened to many of them over and over, and still get stuff out of them. 

Your video seems to not allow streaming as an embed, maybe you can find another source?

Love Alan Watts, I have all of his lectures downloaded on my mp3 player. He has some great books too, "The Way of Zen" was the first spirtual book I read in this life. 


Creation creating itself to create creation. 
Build yourself, you are the power.

true, it's like endlessly falling through groundless floors

the art is to surrender and not to grasp onto anything <3

it takes courage and a leap of faith, but it's the greatest possibility we can open up to <3
