“So then, the relationship of self to other is the complete realization that loving yourself is impossible without loving everything defined as other than yourself.” ~ Alan Watts

Alan Watts, the British philosopher, writer, poet and modern mystic, began popularising Eastern philosophy in the West in 1950s and 1960s. His refreshing perspective on reality, the purpose of life serves as a guide for the open-minded and awakened toward finding your inner self, to re-think your way of life and become who we really are.

He was a critic of modern society, poked fun at institutions and gurus and always saw the big joke of it all. Watts famously described himself as a “philosophical entertainer.”

Here are seven lectures/teachings of Watts that I found inspiring and is sure to make you question reality!

1) The Tao of Philosophy

2) Society Is A Hoax, Take Control Of Your Life

3) Stop Competing With Yourself

4) Meditation ~ The Key To Freedom

5) The Spectrum of Love

6) Become Liberated

7) The Mind

The list just includes some of the videos which resonated with me, am sure there are many more which I haven’t seen. Which are your favorite Alan Watts’ videos? Feel free to add it in the comment.
