Alan Watts: The Dream of Life

An inspiring and profound speech by Alan Watts, from his lecture Out of Your Mind.

Thrilled with the transformation of consciousness and the mutual interdependence of all things, Watts was a generous interpreter of Eastern religions and the quest for meaning in the West. Whether exploring the myth of ourselves based on our separation from others, the nature of selfishness, the fallacy of misplaced concreteness, or the illusion of the ego, Watts takes delight in demolishing the traps of conventional thinking. He asserts that we miss too much of the diversity and majesty of our experience when we close ourselves off to mystery, playfulness, and improvisation.
