This started an interesting conversation with a friend of mine and I today, so I thought I would share it with you. Surprisingly, I had never heard from Alan Watts until now, but I am happy to have run across this introduction to his teachings.
The person that I talked to today said that as an artist this perspective can be somewhat discouraging, because art is subjective and many spend their lives doing what they love only to get no where with it. Desire is a tricky thing because it can lead to attachment, but it is also what propels us closer to the things we love.
What are your thoughts?
