We Must See It Before It’s Too Late – Alan Watts on The Eternal Illusion

Spread the love

An inspirational and profound speech on the eternal illusion by Alan Watts.
Original Audio sourced from: “Alan Watts – Veil of Thoughts-2"

“What we have forgotten is that thoughts and words are conventions, and that it is fatal to take conventions too seriously. A convention is a social convenience, as, for example, money … but it is absurd to take money too seriously, to confuse it with real wealth … In somewhat the same way, thoughts, ideas and words are "coins" for real things.”
– Alan Watts. (1915 – 1973)

  1. This is not the watts I know “trickery” I think 🤔 were is the love? If u can’t find the love than its not the light.

  2. Watts is still light years ahead of the critics. He’d boldly go wherever he needed. Always seemed kinda faithful to me. Y’all got your white picket fences turned inside out. Get out of the garden.

    • The problem is we think there is a thing called time. It’s a concept and hence there is not light years to get ahead of. There just is an Alan Watts and then there was. He’d just remembered who he was, an eternal timeless being. What he’s speaking of is timeless and pointing to something that always was and always will be.

  3. Our world is fascinated with improvement. Faster and faster we go, whilst not really moving at all. Even our world’s religions teach us to improve ourselves. To act, imitate, and embody someone or something. Let go of all this; the illusion of good and bad, right and wrong, big and small are all created for us to chase something that is not real, in the truest sense. Taste the breath. Appreciate it fully. Now breathe out, slowly, with equal appreciation. There is no need for improvement, just BE! This is what Jesus meant when he said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

    • And it is an illusion almost everything they throw at us
      ☯️ Yin and yang
      There Truly can be no good vs evil as light and darkness lives within us all
      Universes code.
      Balance yourselves leave the rest behind

    • @Aaron Tan yes one can, but only to the extent that the natural man is capable which is very limited.
      Greater improvement is possible when we allow God to take control of our “self”. It’s a “process” by which we leave behind the lies of the world and embrace the almighty. It is called “sanctification.”
      The “world” does not recognize nor accept God and instead, tells us that we are empowered to do whatever we set our minds to. This is fantasy in the least and a lie at the worst.

    • @Ryan Sasaki
      Jesus clearly stated there is good and evil.
      I encourage you to study the Bible more deeply. The answers are all in there.

  4. 🎺Thank you 🌞💛

  6. I want to wake up one morning and find out that my portfolio is $1,000,000 . I know it’s possible

    • My first investment with Mr Tobias gave me the assurance that has made me invest without the fear of losing, I got four of my friends involved with him already

    • I’m from the Uk 🇬🇧  I and my colleagues gave him a try and it has been good returns of our investment, Thanks Mr Tobias

    • I’ve got 12th winning thanks to Mr Tobias, he’s really the best, I’ve made £16,400 in 18 days working with him

  7. We are voiding our natural feelings for our earth and replacing them with things !

  8. *Every family has one person who break the odds and achieve success. Thank your Self because its you reading this* 🙏

  9. Can’t make or turn me into an animal, for I know who I AM.

    -Still I have struggles in this realm

  10. We are to release & surrender to our musical creativity. As One we all bond & empower our proliferation

  11. *_Nothing_* is impossible when you have a properly well-developed imagination. Imagine anything. Ignore silly “Laws of Physics” for there are no limits, no rules, no boundaries to that which can be imagined. Once you understand the basics of infinity, you will realize that literally _eveything_ is possible, in fact, everything is inevitable.

  12. If you can’t see it, you feel it! The Lord is our Shepard plain and simple!

  13. That was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever listened to absolutely amazing! I listen to it without watching the video to really take it in.
