If you don’t know who Alan Watts is, now is a great time to get introduced to the amazing thinker. He wrote several books in the mid-20th century about modern philosophy and how to discover better ways of living. Sometimes we get stuck in ruts and patterns that can be frustrating and stressing. Sometimes, the best thing to do is to simply leave desire behind. Our culture can be so vapid and it’s hard to find fulfillment in the world around you. Watts shows us that true happiness and fulfillment comes from stepping outside ourselves and enjoying the now.
