The Wisdom of Insecurity | Alan W. Watts

If happiness always depends on something expected in the future, we are chasing a will-o‘-the-wisp that ever eludes our grasp, until the future, and ourselves, vanish into the abyss of death.

... for the more we are able to feel pleasure, the more we are vulnerable to pain...

The Wisdom of Insecurity | Alan W. Watts

BY ALL OUTWARD APPEARANCES OUR LIFE IS A SPARK of light between one eternal darkness and another.

I have read a portion of this book. Everyone needs to read this. His message is so uplifting.💜💜💜

Zoes_Human Have you read The Book of Joy yet? It's a beautiful book of conversations between the Dalai Lama and the Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Their friendship warms my soul. 2w

I don‘t assign star ratings to religious texts, but THE ART OF LIVING would rank high if I did. It‘s valuable, affecting, and applicable to people at all stages of their spiritual journey. Thich Nhat Hanh writes from a Buddhist perspective without assuming the reader‘s Buddhism, and I‘m sure people of all faiths will find much to consider in here.

He‘s also inspired me to dig deeper. I hereby commit to reading at least 12 Buddhist texts in 2020.

4thhouseontheleft Great goal! 2w
xicanti @4thhouseontheleft I‘m excited. I‘ve already started adding books to my library list, 2w
4thhouseontheleft I have been thinking about what to read for the #LiveandLearn #Booked2020 prompt, and the #pop20 book on something you know nothing about, and it‘s turning into a whole study plan for next year that will be way more than 2 books. 😂 2w

It felt appropriate to just sit and BE while I started THE ART OF LIVING, so that‘s what I did. I‘m gonna get a lot out of this book.
