Description

However, this makes the stunning revelations in the book less stunning than they would have been 60 years ago.

Needless to say such scepticism has grown inordinately since Watts wrote these words and it has perhaps reached its zenith in recent years with the 'New Atheist' movement. Human beings in general, but particularly in our modern age, live in a near-constant state of dissatisfaction and anxiety. Watts unquestionably rips apart the wound and studies it to its very bottom, however much it may hurt. The book also has an open/non-judgemental tone about it that sees the beauty and the divine in every man-made religion. How we’re given the ability to think and reminisce and wish and expect but how exactly those things are giving us unrelenting stress and anxiety.

Put this one up there with Untethered Soul and The Echart Tolle books and Robert Wright's on Buddhism. A friend of mine captured it perfectly writing to me: “it’s almost as if time at once is and is not, in that the future/past never actually “exist” but at the same time seem to be such a substantial part of what makes any sort of present”.

Because if you live in a recurring state of High Anxiety quite often (remember the HILARIOUS Mel Brooks movie?

I see how my own anxiety is fueled by worrying about a future that I can’t really know nor completely prepare for. The statement circulates forever, since it is true to the extent that it is false, and false to the extent that it is true.
