Alan Watts - so good

I feel a strong impulse to share this. It is so spot on... (give it 10 minutes--the beginning alone is gold).

I've watched this one. He's great. I usually put him on when I go to sleep :)

Thanks ! I will pick that one up. But me oh my how nice and golly it is to listen to him on youtube <3

Alan Watts certainly uses the medium of speaking well. I've consumed Alan Watts audio plenty so I prefer reading him.

Alan Watts was quite inspired by J Krishnamurti as well. He says things so directly and plainly. You might find it hard to act on what he says when he at least superficially criticises all these practices like yoga and meditation, renouncing all forms of authority (including himself, if you look at his personal story you'd see this) and religious groups or organisations which promise salvation. But then all the while, he is emphasising what those practices want to achieve most. It's actually extremely funny. So meditate, do yoga anyway. 

I love this guy so much. I have to make notes lol.
