5 Books that Open you Up

“What was it like to wake up after never having gone to sleep? That was when you were born.”Alan Watts

What great things we could do if we lived a life never thinking we had limitations. If we remembered who we are. Living a life that was agnostic, learning as much as we could from every experience and every person we encountered. Never judging those experiences or people. Instead we would embrace everything for what it was. Another precious moment of this existence.

All of these thoughts were swirling in my head today. Included in this existential meditation of mine were thoughts about my current reality. Thoughts about book sales, bills and house payments, and my job I dislike. Then I heard this quote. One that I’ve loved for many years.

“What was it like to wake up after never having gone to sleep? That was when you were born.”Alan Watts

I started to think on it. If I was never asleep, am I asleep now? Is everything I am or that I think I am a dream? And if everything is a dream does it really matter? I mean doesn’t that make this life a little more interesting? It would mean that this reality really is yours for the taking. You can twist it one way or another. You could quit worrying about what you don’t want and simply get what you do want.

You could live a life without worry. You could love and be loved.

“You suddenly see that there isn’t a grain of dust that exists in the whole universe that’s in the wrong place…” – Alan Watts
