Alan Watts: The Real Secret Of Life (in 70 seconds)_Featured_, Awake and Aware, Conscious Living Monday, January 21st, 2013
This is the real secret of life: to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.
The future is a concept, it doesn’t exist. As the proverb says, tomorrow never comes. We’re only really ever alive now.
Bring in your mind to state of reality. Now!
There is no such thing as TOMORROW. There is no past and there is no future. There never will be, because TIME is always NOW.
We get distracted from living fully now by having our eye on the future.
The point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.
I don’t know what can be more realistic than this – what could be more fundamentally facing the hard facts of life.
Time is always NOW!
So, the ultimate experience in Buddhism is when we come together with ourselves again. And, as a result of coming together with ourselves, find we are together with everything – that we are not a separate cut-off being, but that this whole universe is ourselves.
