Sunday Matinee: The Taoist Way with Alan Watts

Butchers, Bakers, Candlestick Makers, and my old rogues,

I have learned much in my life from the teachings of Alan Watts. Here’s a wonderful lecture he did on the Taoist way for your enjoyment today. The philosophy of the Tao is a fundamental aspect of my own reality tunnel and it lends itself well to an even-keeled temperament. This does not mean that the Universe can’t pitch a curve ball every now and again that knocks your freakin’ socks off.  ;)

But I digress. Is Taoism truth you ask? How about some good ole’ Gibran wisdom -The bird of truth does indeed unfurl its wings in Taoist philosophy but it still does not take flight. It has served me as a masterful methodology to approaching life however and also, to processing data received from self-observation.

A life of higher egoic reflectivity eventually reorients the soul to its Divine origins. Walking this path of relentless self observation also leads to a life of teaching by example versus exposition of precept. The little dilemma that arises however is that only by suffering through exposition of precept does one develop the skillset necessary to perform relentless self observation. Lol  Go figure!

Would you expect any less in a universe where the increasing complexity of life dances with the 2nd law of thermodynamics? But enough rambling from me, I’ll let the venerable Mr. Watts do the exposition today. Enjoy amigos!

One love,

HJ

P.S. 2nd Law of Thermodynamics just states that the entropy of any system approaches positive infinity or disorder is always increasing. Seems to be contrary to the move towards more organization that drives evolution.

    H3nry, Tubularsock happens to be on the same page with you when it comes to Taoism. And on the Universe’s disregard of socks.

    Alan Watts has been a key to much understanding as well. Thanks H3nry.

    Barefoot may be the answer to the question not asked.

      lol Tube, I’d like to reserve my official copy of your book on politics and humor. It’s always a treat to get a glimpse from the Tubeside.

      I think a pedicure might just be in order.

  2. Oops, I thought it was chaos theory driving evolution.
