Alan Watts – We are nature

Alan Watts – We are nature


The way an ecologist describes human
behavior is as an action, what you do is what the whole
universe is doing at the place you call
here and now. You are something
the whole universe is doing In the same way that a wave is something the whole ocean is doing. Nature, human nature included,
is an organism. An organism is
a system of orderly anarchy. There is no boss in it, but it gets along by being left alone
and being allowed to do it stuff. We need a new
kind of consciousness because if we don’t experience
ourselves that way we mistreat our environment. We treat it as an enemy. We try to beat it into submission. and if we do that, comes disaster. underneath the superficial self there is another self. More really us than I. And, if you become aware
of that unknown self the more you realise that it is inseparably connected
with everything else that there is. That, our real body is not just what’s inside the skin, but our whole,
total external environment.
