What does it mean, to awaken? A short movie narrated by Alan Watts, video created by Christopher (admin of Tao & Zen on Facebook): https://www.facebook.com/TaoZen2012

Thanks to Mark Watts for permission to put this up: http://alanwatts.com/

For those who would like to hear Alan Watts speak without any background music, a second version of this video can be found here:

"So then, here's the drama. My metaphysics, let me be perfectly frank with you, are that there is the central Self, you could call it God you could call it anything you like. And its all of us. Its playing all the parts of all beings whatsoever everywhere and anywhere.

And its playing the game of hide and seek with itself. It gets lost, it gets involved in the farthest out adventures but in the end it always wakes up, and comes back to itself. And when you're ready to wake up, you're gonna wake up. And if you're not ready your gonna stay pretending that you're poor little me."


with background music by Kitaro- "Endless Water" and "Tree" from his album "Ki"....

Both songs can be heard at full volume here:
