"While living, be a dead man, thoroughly dead; Then, whatever you do, just as you will, will be right" - This book is a book I needed to read and I'm very happy that I finally read. It helps you get out of your own way and become who you are. There's a lot of talk about Buddhism, Zen, Christianity, etc. Alan Watts teaching is amazing, he explains religions and their messages in an entertaining way. I enjoyed watching his videos on YouTube and I love his books. He has a way of making you really think. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone. It's short and easy to follow. And hopefully, after you're done reading this book, you become what you are - - #bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #booklover #booknerd #bookish #reading #bookaddict #igreads #booklove #bookaholic #bookporn #instabook #bookphotography #bookgeek #booksofinstagram #goodreads #instabooks #reader #epicreads #igbooks #bookreviews #readersofinstagram #nonfiction #alanwatts #becomewhatyouare

'We love to see a child lost in the dance and not performing for an audience. To be happy and know that you are happy is really the overflowing cup of life. To dance as if there was no audience.' ~Watts I greatly enjoy watching the Wildling within me easily get lost in the dance of yoga. Feels free. Feels blissful. Feels a lot like love.

If the body or mind were having an experience that you considered a problem, but you realized that you were not the body or mind, would you suffer from those problems? - You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.

This is why Buddhism is one of my favorite lifestyles . Because it is a way of being not a group or religion. It teaches you how to look within yourself to find yourself. Once you silence your mind . You will find that every answer lies within you . Meditation is a way of doing this . I’ve learned that easterners teach you that everyone is ONE . everything is connected. Westerner like to point outside for answers . Searching endlessly for something they never will find unless they look within . This is not science this is not calculus , this is simple eyes closed , and sitting in silence to find the true meaning of life . #buddhism #hinduism #bashar #alanwatts #jimcarrey #spiritscience #meditation #easternphilosophy #philosophy #mindovermatter #spirituality #silence #consciousness #dedication #mindfulness #awakening #enlightenment #religion #truth #divinewisdom #hiddenknowledge #yoga

just remember that the way the world is, is all up to how you perceive it. you are the universe. you see the world the way you choose, you create beauty. so create something magnificent. don't leave this blank canvas life until you have fulfilled everything you possibly can to create life out of death, joy out of misery, beauty out of pain.

"Suppressing the fear of death makes it all the stronger. The point is only to know, beyond any shadow of doubt, that "I" and all other "things" now present will vanish, until this knowledge compels you to release them - to know it now as surely as if you had just fallen off the rim of the Grand Canyon. Indeed you were kicked off the edge of a precipice when you were born, and it's no help to cling to the rocks falling with you. If you are afraid of death, be afraid. The point is to get with it, to let it take over - fear, ghosts, pains, transience, dissolution, and all. And then comes the hitherto unbelievable surprise; you don't die because you were never born. You had just forgotten who you are."- Alan Watts #death #deathpositivemovement #deathdoula #deathandlifedoula #endoflife #spirituality #bereavement #grief #mourning #memorial #love #greenburial #organic #dying #fear #ghost #transience #afraid #born #reborn #live #deathpositive #deathawareness #consciousness #spirituality #alanwatts #quotes

cosmiconion_

In light of my recent post on water and how it’s not really a “thing”, the same can be said about anything including ourselves . “Who/what am I?” raises various answers such as name, job, familial status, social status, race, body, accomplishments, etc... but these are all symbols and characteristics about the “self” and not the “self, itself” . For example, when we use our taken for granted language, we say things like “my body hurts” or “my mind is chaotic” or “I like pizza”, who or what are these referring to? Who is the “my” that the body belongs to? Who/what is the “my” that the mind belongs to? Who/what is the possessor of all these things that revolve around the idea of an “I”? . The true “self” is like when u peel an onion. We are all onions walking around with various layers of beliefs and ideas that determine “who we are”. However, when analyzed like water, we realize none of these layers of beliefs are actually “the actual self”, so u keep peeling back to see if there is an owner behind it all. However when u get to the center of an onion, it’s empty . This nothingness is the same as the infinite. Zero and infinity are the same thing. Once our onion layers are peeled off, the air inside the empty center of an onion realizes it was the same air that flows through the world all along. In the same way, when our ego layers are peeled off, the same consciousness within realizes it was the same consciousness that flows throughout the entire cosmos . #cosmiconion #onion #ego #spirituality #zen #directexperience #easternphilosophy #emptiness #anatta #nothingness #infinity #tao #jedmckenna #alanwatts #noself #adyashanti #gatelessgate #metaphysics #enlightenment #nonduality #oneness

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth. I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is. No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now. -Alan Watts #edits #bored #someonedebateme #solarsystem #alanwatts #carlsagan #lovefromgallifrey 🤖🌌

“What I am really saying is that you don’t need to do anything. Because if you see yourself in the correct way, you are all as much extraordinary phenomenon of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars, and the form of a galaxy. You are all just like that, and there is nothing wrong with you at all...” - #alanwatts #alanwattsquotes #rockymountains #pikespeak

"Let's suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream you wanted to dream, and you would naturally as you began on this adventure of dreams, you would fulfill all your wishes. You would have every kind of pleasure, you see, and after several nights you would say . . Well that was pretty great, but now let's have a surprise, let's have a dream which isn't under control. Well something is going to happen to me that I don't know what it's gonna be. . . Then you would get more and more adventurous, and you would make further and further out gambles as to what you would dream, and finally you would dream where you are now." - Alan Watts . . #somewhere #dream #alanwatts #love #loveyoudad

“Find out what it means to die - not physically, that's inevitable - but to die to everything that is known, to die to your family, to your attachments, to all the things that you have accumulated, the known, the known pleasures, the known fears. Die to that every minute and you will see what it means to die so that the mind is made fresh, young, and therefore innocent, so that there is incarnation not in a next life, but the next day.” -Jiddu Krishnamurti #egodeathchallenge #krishnamurti #alanwatts

It’s a funny thing, decision making, no matter how much you weigh up the arguments, the pros and cons of doing something, when it finally comes to the time when you must decide, you make a snap judgement and all that debate becomes futile. I heard Alan Watts say this a while ago and it really stuck with me. I used to struggle with decisions, the smallest ones and the big ones, but over time, I’ve realised that going with that first thing that feels right, that’s the instinct, that’s the thing I never thought I had, that powerful thing called intuition. It’s all about recognising that feeling and then listening to it, not letting the mind wonder about the endless what if’s, not giving into the anxiety that comes from being unsure, not wasting energy on the somewhat disabling choices. When you feel this shift, you suddenly have a new access of freedom and energy... even time. . . . . #thoughts #dreams #decisions #debate #whatif #innerjourney #meditate #alanwatts #decide #hearyourthoughts #why #listentoyourself #indianfashion #ramblings #dreamy #thoughtoftheday #lostinthought #energy #themind #mindfulness #heartandmind #beherenow

You are awesome and the world should know it. 🐽 Have fun. Play. Be creative. Tell your story. 👄 And as Alan Watts said, “This is the real secret to life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”

“Look at the people who live to retire, putting those savings away. And then when they’re 65 they don’t have any energy left. They realize too late that life was a musical thing, and you were supposed to sing or to dance while the music was being played.’” . ☝🏻Slightly adjusted quote from Alan Watts (who, if you haven’t listened to him speak about all the wisdom in the world you are missing out 😍 I put a link to a little clip in my bio for you). I’m not saying to ditch your 401k or not worry about debt, but if you have the choice of spending your hard-earned money on items or experiences, go with the latter. Enjoy yourself and life NOW; you may never even reach retirement age. . . . . . . #dontwaitfortomorrow #alanwatts #livelifetothefullest #lessonslearned #lifeisshort #happinessquotes #injuryrecovery #grablifebythehorns #traveltheworld #travelholic #thisiswhyitravel #digitalnomadgirls #girlslovetravel #femmetravel #travelisgoodforthesoul #nomadlife #nomadlifestyle #girlssthatsparkle #digitalnomadlife solotravel #tulummexico #wearetravelgirls #lifestyledesign #tulumvibes #nomadgirls #workingremotely #homeiswherethewifiis #glt

"Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone." #alanwatts #alanwattsquote #halasana #ploughpose #stopdropbty . . . . Ploughs turn over the upper layer of soil in agriculture, stirring up both fresh nutrients and also decaying matter. Like a snowglobe, movement shakes up our insides and, if we are paying attention, shows them to us (the observer). Movement stirs up the activity in our cells, inviting both freshly nourished blood into the body but also old, damages tissues that need to die off, be processed, and released back to the earth. #lifecycle . . . . . . . Where in your life are old patterns stirring up? Can you watch as the water of your emotional state becomes muddy, trusting that it will clear? Where can you step back and trust that the muddy water soon return to transparency? . . . . . #yogapose #yogateacher #shawnamarieyoga #yogini #inversion #yinyoga #restorativeyoga #activerecovery #grounded #earth #nature #lifereflectsart

The separation between "life" and "my life" is quite tangible. Start by listening and watching your surroundings, feeling your body and listening to your thoughts. Continue by accepting your reactions to all of it, one by one, whether in thought form or in bodily sensations. Go with it and drop the effort. As long as you are trying to do it you are on the wrong path. Experience all of it that you think is "you", in person form. Memories, feelings, thoughts. Find your sense of "I", physically in the body. Observe it, feel it. Realise that you are observing it. Realise that you are observing what you thought was "yourself". Separate. Accept :) 🖖 . . . #meditation #feeling #mindfulness #meditationinmotion #enlightenment #acceptance #eckharttolle #alanwatts #Dubrovnik #sipanisland #croatia #travel #experience #transformation #innertransformation

We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infintesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future

#flowfriday featuring Harry Potter knee highs and my “attempt” at keeping my blowout pretty... which I failed miserably and I think might have even eaten some of my hair 😂🤦‍♀️ I’m sure my ladies understand 🤷‍♀️ . . I don’t look as clean as @rocksfitnesstraining but I’ll keep practicing ☺️ thank you for challenging me, and enjoy the added movement at the end! 😂😁 . . Finished today off with a little decompression, nothing spectacular, but I really enjoyed listening to Alan Watts, which blew my mind, and just taking some time to move slowly. My body is pretty sore from barbell lifts all week, so it felt good to just move. . . I hope everyone has an intentional Friday full of laughter 😁
