I found this page this morning. It outlines a way of looking at the world – more like receiving it – that has been healing for me. Ancient Indian philosophy has helped me to see things differently.
The video by the late Alan Watts is especially nice. I made a little index of the points that resonate with me:
“Ten thousand things … one suchness.” starting at 1m 46s.
The world as Māyā starting at 2m 35s.
“You are, really, a playing of this one energy.” at 4m 27s.
“And you suddenly see through the whole sham of things” at 5m 19s.
“You are relieved of fundamental terror.” at 5m 40s.
“Buddhas are human. They are enlightened men and women.” at 6m 40s.
“Seeing that all life is a magnificent illusion, a playing of energy, and there is absolutely nothing, fundamentally, to be afraid of.” at 8m 40s.
