Lost in Translation

Food for thought

Recommended Posts

I came across this earlier today. It seems relevant to many topics here.

 

"Where do I begin and end in space? I have relations to the sun and air which are just as vital parts of my existence as my heart. The movement in which I am a pattern or convolution began incalculable ages before the (conventionally isolated) event called birth, and will continue long after the event called death. Only words and conventions can isolate us from the entirely undefinable something which is everything."

 

Alan Watts

The Wisdom of Insecurity, p. 49

I live with a palpable sense of the utter lack of independence of 'things'.

 

 

There is no one thing that can to me, be demonstrated to be separate from all else.

 

 

There is only One void is form form is void in a fluid, flowing change. 

Not a static, solid anything... anywhere.
