LOVE IT!

Every word. Every note. Every Image.

Such a Beauty-Full Awareness to come to in one's life. I appreciate so very much your talent for putting out such Resonant Creations. Nice to be Reminded.

As always, great job! This is now my new favourite T&H video!

Thank You!

No You're It

Don't get it.

The text at the end makes more sense to me than than the rest of the video. I must be missing something. I probably got lost when he started speaking about reincarnation, and of how the universe is - as if one could know that truth

I find it peculiar that anyone attracted to libertarian thought, would buy into such fantasy.

It doesn't seem much different than Christianity to me, as faith is a key component. Why are people so willing to believe things to be true that they cannot possibly ever prove?

Ask yourself, "Who do I need to prove it to?"

DO you need to prove it to others and the world? If so, you would be following in the path that has gotten us to the generally confusing state of things in the World today.

But if you seek to prove it to yourself, then there are many teachings and methods by which to come to such "knowing" not just believing. The Truth is subjective to one's individual life experience and cannot serve as proof to anyone but oneself. There are many Metaphors out in the world that seek to guide us to this Awareness.

A few short years ago, none of this made much sense to me at all. I went through some troubles and hit "rock bottom" in many aspects of my life and that's when I began to ask questions. Then the answers flowed in subtle yet powerful ways.

One of my favourite quotes is from the Kybalion:

"The Lips of Wisdom are closed except to the Ears of Understanding."

Even though we have had centuries of Religious teachings, many people see them as some sort of set of rules to live by and demand others live by them as well rather than living the teachings on a personal subjective level to then assist others, should you choose, in coming to their own awareness.

It's funny when you think about it, that it takes a personal individual awareness to bring us all together.

Beautiful video

It's so nice FEEL the energy around thoughtfulness and kindness.

Reminds me of the irrational

Reminds me of the irrational fear people have of being sick, like science has some how made us impervious and a great society, that we no longer should be slowed down in our fabulous industrial economy for mere germs to take hold of us for a few days.

great video

But life,family and friends have a way
to drive them thoughts completely out of the forefront
of ones mind,and into the darkest recesses of it

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Ohhhhh...T & H I so love your

Ohhhhh...T & H I so love your work, please don't ever stop. What you do is vitally important to the rising of consciousness necessary for survival on this sweet Earth.

I am grateful...

I am always super excited

I am always super excited when you put up another Alan Watts video.

Your videos have been instrumental for me into seeing things for what they are and humbling myself to all the beauty and love around us.

I am now forever in love with Alan Watts.

Thank you!

Shared it this morning on Facebook

One of my friends posted your "Life is a Dance" video today on Facebook, so I gave him the link to your youtube channel to check out more of your work, and noticed you posted this today! Great work as always.

Thank You.

I always enjoy your videos... keep up the good work

What's not to like?

Love the quote at the end!

--Voltaire

It's hard not to be a menace to society when half the population is happy on their knees. - unknown
