Should we be animals?

MAN IS AN amphibian who lives simultaneously in two worlds - the given and the homemade, the
world of matter, life and consciousness and the world of symbols. In our thinking we make use of
a great variety of symbol-systems - linguistic, mathematical, pictorial, musical, ritualistic. Without
such symbol-systems we should have no art, no science, no law, no philosophy, not so much as the
rudiments of civilization: in other words, we should be animals.

The wisdom of insecurity-message age of anxiety

The wisdom of insecurity-message  age of anxiety
We spend too much time trying to anticipate and plan for the future; too much time lamenting the past. We often miss the pleasures of the moment in our anxious efforts to ensure the next moment is as enjoyable. Drawing from Eastern philosophy and religion, Watts argues that it is only by acknowledging what we do not and cannot know, that we can find something truly worth knowing. In order to lead a fulfilling life, one must embrace the present—live fully in the now.

You are loved just for being

You are loved just for being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success— none of that matters. No one can take t...his love away from you, and it will always be here.

Imagine that being in this love is like relaxing endlessly into a warm bath that surrounds and supports your every movement.                  -Ram Das
