“Watch the flow of water when it crosses over an area of land and you will see that it puts out fingers, and some of them stop because they come into blind alleys.
The water doesn’t pursue that course; it simply rises and then it finds a way it can go.
But it never uses any effort. It only uses weight [and] gravity. It takes the line of least resistance and eventually finds a course.
Now, we will do the same thing.”
—Alan Watts

Words and measures do not give life; they merely symbolize it. Thus all "explanations" of the universe couched in language are circular, and leave the most essential things unexplained and undefined.
Alan Watts ~ The Wisdom of Insecurity.

It’s the sort of snarl that self-consciousness can get into, and we call this anxiety. When I keep thinking over and over again, “Did I do the right thing?”—if I’m constantly aware of myself in a kind of anxious, critical way—my resonance becomes too high, and I get confused and jittery. But if you learn that self-consciousness has limits, that self-awareness cannot possibly enable you to be free of making mistakes, you can learn to be spontaneous in spite of being self-aware. And you can enjoy the echo.
Alan Watts.

Ordinary people look like gods because the values of the organism are uppermost, and the concerns of consciousness fall back into the subordinate position which they should properly hold. Love, unity, harmony, and relationship therefore take precedence over war and division.
from The Joyous Cosmology: Adventures in the Chemistry of Consciousness (1962)
Alan Watts

The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.
