Alan Watts fit into a nice Northern California stereotype. He lived in Marin County, in the bay area – the home of some of the most precious people on earth – and was a Zenmaster.
He was a teacher and lecturer of Eastern philosophy, so he had a rich base of followers here. Marinites are among the least “religious” people in America. Watts’s early career, however was rooted in organized Protestant religion; his master’s degree was in theology, and for a time he was an Episcopal priest.
But Watts’s secular passions were similar to Aldous Huxley ( author of Brave New World); Watts was fascinated by the human experience.
This video, featuring the voice of Watts with powerful images, is about as pure a gospel to human happiness as I can find.
Watch this and ask yourself the question, “What would I do if I could do anything, if money was no object?”
It’s an extraordinary piece of video that might just change your life.
My life is a million miles from perfect. My job and my employer are not perfect. But my career is sublime. I am so freaking lucky. I want this for you – that’s why this is my life’s calling.
You wish you could reinvent – do it.
