Alan Watts: How to get out of our own way
Alan Watts: How to get out of your own way
Mind over mind: In this video Alan Watts explains how we can overcome our addiction to punishing ourselves with the juice we get from our pleasures. He begins by explaining the Christian concept of "grace" which God gives for free, which we are told we are utterly dependent on but unable to get for ourselves. It is that which we do not deserve, that which we cannot get, so we behave well to get it... which is a strange way of explaining KARMA which works in mysterious ways. How will our selfish-will be unselfish and deserving? Or we can go Calvinist and depend on predestination. Watts explains in detail and leads us to understand how we can let go of irrational thinking.
