Book Overview
Renowned lecturer and author Alan Watts presents his meditations on the dilemma of seeking your true self. In doing so, becoming what you are--at once an impossible directive and an unavoidable fact. In this collection of writings, Watts displays the intelligence, playfulness of thought, and simplicity of language that has made him so perennially popular as an interpreter of Eastern thought for Westerners. He draws on a variety of religious traditions and covers topics such as the challenge of seeing one's life just as it is, the Taoist approach to harmonious living, the limits of language in the face of ineffable spiritual truth, and the psychological symbolism of Christian thought.
