If you haven’t listened to Alan Watts, put on your helmet because your head is going to explode. OK, that’s a little extreme. But if you have an open mind, these short videos can bring you a big rush of peace in a small amount of time. Alan Watts was a well-known a British philosopher who specialized in interpreting Eastern concepts for Western audiences. He is not without critics, but many people enjoy his presentation style somewhere between a monk and a radio announcer.
Watch these videos on the human condition, the meaning of our existence, and why we’re so unhappy. Make your own judgements and expand your personal philosophy on life. Or, don’t! As Aristotle says, “The mark of an educated mind is to be able to entertain an idea without necessarily accepting it.” Enjoy.
