We’re quite fond of Alan Watts around here. Watts often spoke about education and work in ways that were simple, but profound. He questioned the nature and purpose of both work and education, and how they operate in Western society. He did so in a way that was illuminating and easy to comprehend.
Listening to Watts is like hearing a good friend tell you how you need to stop worrying about what people think of you, and just do what you believe is right for you. He questioned the systems that pervade our lives, and often leave us miserable. His philosophies are as fresh and urgent today as they were over 40 years ago when he first said them. That’s why we are featuring him today.
The clip we chose is hypnotic and entrancing. If you’re going through a particularly tough time, we hope this clip hits you in the solar plexus, and wakes you to your life’s open ended possibilities. We all deserve meaningful work.
