“Alan Watts talks about the concept of awakening, and encourages us to explore our own potential for self-realization. He invites us to examine our beliefs, question our assumptions, and tap into the deeper dimensions of our being, reminding us that true awakening cannot be imposed from the outside, but must arise from within when we are ready to embrace it. He’s reminding us that we are powerful beings, and everything that happens is connected; so in some way things happens for us, created by us, not to us.
