  1. “A person who is fanatic in matters of religion, and clings to certain ideas about the nature of God and the universe, becomes a person who has no faith at all.”
    -Alan Watts

    • … Haha, yes. Terence McKenna said the biblical God behaves like a psychotic on crack.

    • I feel so alone when I listen to him. Where can I find other like-minded people in my area who are not religious?

    • I love listening to mr. Watts on mushrooms! Talk about an enlightening and awakening experience!

    • @Pravduh you need other people to feel that you belong! Be in love with yourself and allow no one to interrupt the lessons you are learning and living!

  2. Always gets the neurons firing and overthinking long after the message has gone quiet.

    • … Just getting your neurons lit up is enough. You don’t really have to think about it afterwards. Perhaps the more times our neurons are lit up, the smarter we become.

  3. Alan Watts is was the best teacher I ever had and the funny thing is we never met.

    • He wasn’t enlightened but George Gurdjeff, Osho, Eckhart Tolle, Jakob Boehme were enlightened though. Trust me no one else will tell you this..

    • … Alan Watts was good for sure. Have you checked out Terence McKenna, as seen and heard on WE plants are happy plants, on YouTube? in my book, he is one step above Alan Watts.

    • @The One Minds Aaron Abke, Krishnamurti, Osho, Moojiji, and Eckhart Tolle are all great teachers.

  4. Something tells me God will be busy in Washington, D.C., over the next few days. It’s going to be spectacular.

  5. … Another good story is that an indigenous shaman told the anthropologist that he talked to God when he took mushrooms. But the Anthropologist said, how do you know it was the real genuine actual God? The indigenous person answered, either I talked to the real genuine actual God, or else I’m under the impression I did.

  6. Perhaps Alan Watts couldn’t be a fluke of the universe but most of us could.

  7. This is a very interesting lecture and I have never really thought about why God is always connected to light. Alan Watts is absolutely right by stating that God can be found in the universe and in darkness. Whenever we are going through dark times in our lives the universe is sending us a message and this is how we find our way out into lightness again. Our only task should be to listen to the lessons of life and to surmount the obstacles which the universe is sending us, as only then we can unfold our true selves. For this we don’t need a God, because the power of enlightenment is within each one of us.

  8. In recent times the “god”-ling took quite a big hit, while the Christian spiritual path is actually very similar to the Buddhist one or others, where little ground for criticism exists. The religion seems fine to me, the institutions often doesn’t

  9. God is neither light nor dark, it is a feeling subtle yet all pervading, that like gravity pulls us all equally and indiscriminately towards a simple realisation, that life is meant to be lived, not for nor against something, but, to simply be; “What was, will be, until we (simply) are”; In my opinion.
