On Being Aware

"Fair Use"

by Alan Watts

This is a chapter from Watts' The Wisdom of Insecurity. He addresses here some fundamental issues about awareness and our insatiable, but wrongheaded, obsession with finding/having "security." Everything he says applies to all levels of reality...micro/meso/macro. I urge you to give it a close reading.

I've divided the chapter into 4 sections...each a readable jpg image...loading time may vary.

Section 1

Section 2

Section 3

Section 4
