Alan Watts

I find Alan Watts to be so inspirational.

“To go out of your mind, at least once a day is tremendously important, because by going out of your mind you come to your senses.

And if you stay in your mind all the time you are over rational.

In other words you are like a very rigid bridge which because it has no give, no craziness in it, is going to be blown down by the first hurricane.” Alan Watts

He is talking about being in the now.

Entering into creativity for no reason at all, gives us respite.

Simple things: Dancing, singing, painting, writing, arranging flowers, cooking, meditating, mantras, photography, ceremony and endless other things.

Playfully, for no reason except the very fun of it, the joy in it 🌱

Creativity is fabulous for our health, opens our minds, aids in problem solving, allows self expression, is a survival tool in troubled times, boosts self confidence and increases feelings of happiness and contentment 💛

Why not write yourself a prescription today!

Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was an English writer, speaker and self-styled “philosophical entertainer”, known for interpreting and popularising Japanese, Chinese and Indian traditions of Buddhist, Taoist, and Hindu philosophy for a Western audience.
