Beautiful, short video based upon the teachings of Alan Watts, including: “You don’t look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.”
You are that vast thing that you see far, far off with great telescopes.
But we try to pretend, you see, that the external world exists altogether independently of us.
You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.
You don’t look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.
So then, the relationship of self to other is the complete realization that loving yourself is impossible without loving everything defined other than yourself.
