Alan Watts on the “good news”

It’s time to wake up and realize who you are. A beautifully articulated excerpt from Alan Watts concerning discarding Christian dogma and finding the “kingdom of heaven” within. I like the direction that the venerable Mr. Watts has taken with his pronouncement.
Every child born to woman possesses the “ruach” or “breath.” The quest for nirvana is a quest to recognize and embrace the Divine within each of us. The four gospels were selected for advocating the position that Christ was the “only begotten Son,” however they are not an exhaustive narrative on the life of the Nazarene. The Gnostic gospels and other writings of the age paint a different picture.  Though not reconcilable with the dogma of fundamentalism which posits an external heaven as a type of monarchy requiring an intermediary, these teachings suggest that Jah, Brahma, Allah, Jehovah, or whatever moniker has been used to encapsulate that which eludes naming, requires neither priest class nor grandiose houses of worship.

Any “religious” text purporting to outline the only way to God should also be “ceremoniously burned for we need it no more. The Spirit is with us.” The energy of the Kristos is accessible to any human fully prepared to receive it.

“Raise the stone, and there you will find me; cleave the wood, and there I am.” Gospel of Thomas
