From what I have observed, the notion of reality is that something is fixed. It is not that reality is not real; it is that it is temporary, always in motion.
I guess the Buddhists call that impermanence.
More interesting that ideologies, philosophies, paths or not, is what we do with our suffering - how it is feeling -. When we attend to our suffering, we begin to develop awareness and in awareness we awaken. Wordless wonder.

I have that book! I may read it again; Alan Watts is awesome.

Al Watts was the greatest philospher of the 20th century-I enjoy listening to his vast collection of recorded talks on the Pacifica Station KPFK in the L.A. area!

Great Post, thank you!
Alan Watts is a serious inspiration, here's my animation of his' account of Nirvana as recorded in his Lectures on Buddhism: The Middle Way - Watts' Nirvana

Celestial Elf,

Really liked your video. Nice to be reminded of letting go, no clinging, no trying, just playing the game of being this person I call me :)

Alan Watts is a wonderful inspiration, thank you.
