hi, is there an option to connect with you somehow? I would like to ask you a question .thanks!!

One thing I find funny about Alan Watts is that (at least compared to preachers I’ve heard all my life) he’s not really trying to convince you to believe anything but somehow explains what you deep down already know to be true. Idk I’ve always felt preachers are always trying to convince themselves that what they are saying is right by getting everyone else to agree with them. Quite a funny game ;)

He has something ! I like the sound of his voice , its the voice you can listen to all day . He is never patronizing . He is enjoying what he is doing . He likes having an audience . His subject is so remote from my frame of reference that I cannot understand what he says , not just here , but in all his YouTube uploaded talks. And I play them all sometimes repeatedly .
There is the hope of course , that by listening without making an effort , a conscious effort to understand , I may get it . Just like that ! Except of course , there is really nothing to get ! Perhaps the best approach to Alan Watts is to consider it some form of 'spiritual entertainment' .

Alan Watts figured it out wish he was still teaching. Not a fan of the modern walking on eggshell nature of teaching zen; zen masters are always passively threatening like their wisdom is untethered. so strange to me frankly pretentious farce at worst. Spinning intelligent"cool" yarns. Watts is guilty of this on occasion imo but mastered and did not tolerate such eventually.

He was a smart feller

the hardest thing for me is trying not to understand and accept not knowing. u feel a deep longing to understand reality on a deeper level while you are sitting there observing. either way, u cant make a living being a passive observer. u do have to go out there and play a little bit! at least in western society unless u want to be the gutter rat living in the box. good luck being human in that condition lol

5 months ago

Lol not in that way of course ma, you don't just let anything happen zen is being yourself and doing the things you really mean to do. Not doing things for glory or to try to appear better than another person, etc .. because whatever point of focus that is available to human is also available to you, so in other words you are already it since you can bring the thought into focus and where attention goes energy flows. So now , Emphasizing that you are that thought is what creates the problem. Putting focus on the thought is the disease thats plaguing us. You have to somehow always be in a meditative state in every experience you encounter in the here and now . Following only your true intentions . Nd allowing everything else that is not you to be what it is 💕💕

What we’re doing here is, listening to a very smart man explain nothing, and it’s simply amazing to realize.

Totally.. Dito here too. Try OSHO too. Once OSHO gets under your skin, you will free yourself of so much, it's unimaginable without doing it. Don't let the accent get to you, just play them all, just play them all and you'll be thankful, that he awoke the rebel in you. Amen

Everything is energy. Me, you, a plant. Make an effort to either:
A) Learn more about what vibrational frequency is
B) Consider a few ways to up your vibrational frequency

Allen creates a higher order by both combining and comparing multiple ways of being and somewhere between them all is the truth. He doesn't say Hinduism is the right way or even that the way is the only way. But use your mind to sift through them all for clues. Again Kundalini yoga says be your own guru. Expand beyond what the great Mr. Watts has offered or suggested.

Just so Rene Descartes was wrong when he implied dualism was the Mind-Body and sent millions on the wrong path. Disturbing the natural order. Between Descartes and Erikson they planted the seeds of self deception and you (we) cultivated them. Not knowing any better. The Dao is like the cold passing through you, will you dismiss it as just cold.

I have a theory that consciousness is like an atmosphere only will you breathe in? The Dao is like ten thousand years of thought condensed into the answer. You get an instant the world is not ready for you now feeling. Blessings to all that seek.

1 year ago

There he finally gave it away the mystical of being a mystic. We are taught nature vs nurture Erikson's adage but that introduces dualism not so subtly. I found the dao when I thought I was sincere to my nature but again I was wrong. Be sincere to nature itself while in nature. When Yoda told Luke to use the force, Luke doesn't ask who created it or why. He just knows it's power and moves forward in life with it.
