“But I’ll tell you what hermits realize.
If you go off into a far, far forest
and get very quiet,
you’ll come to understand that
you’re connected with everything.”

No valid plans for the future can be made
by those who have no capacity for living now.
The only way to make sense out of change
is to plunge into it,
move with it,
and join the dance.
Trying to define yourself
is like trying to bite your own teeth.

— Alan Watts

The meaning and purpose of dancing is the dance.
Like music also, it is fulfilled in each moment of its course.
You do not play a sonata in order to reach the final chord,
and if the meaning of things were simply in ends,
composers would write nothing but finales.

— Alan Watts

If you ask me to show you God,
I will point to the sun, or a tree, or a worm.

But if you say,
“You mean, then, that God is the sun, the tree,
the worm, and all other things?” —
I shall have to say that you have missed the point entirely.

— Alan Watts
