The Real You  –  Alan Watts

If you ready to wake up, you gonna wake up and if you’re not ready you’re gonna stay pretending that you’re just a ‘poor little me’. And since you all here and engaged in this sort of inquiry and listening to this sort of lecture, I assume that you’re all on the process of waking up. Or else you’re teasing yourselves with some kind of flirtation with waking up which you’re not serious about. But I assume maybe you are not serious, but sincere that you are ready to wake up. So then, when you’re in the way of waking up, and finding out who you really are, what you do is what the whole universe is doing at the place you call here and now. You are something the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is something that the whole ocean is doing. The real you is not a puppet which life pushes around; the real, deep down you is the whole universe. So then, when you die, you’re not going to have to put up with everlasting non-existence, because that’s not an experience. Lot of people are afraid that when they die, they’re gonna be locked up in a dark room forever, and sort of undergo that. But one of the most interesting things in the world – this is a yoga, this is a way of realization try and imagine what it will be like to go to sleep and never wake up. Think about that. Children think about that. It’s one of the great wonders of life. What will it be like to go to sleep and never wake up? And if you think long enough about that, something will happen to you. You will find out, among other things, that it will pose the next question to you. What was it like to wake up after having never gone to sleep? That was when you were born. You see, you can’t have an experience of nothing; nature abhors a vacuum. So after you’re dead, the only thing that can happen is the same experience, or the same sort of experience when you were born. In other words, we all know very well that after people die, other people are born. And they’re all you, only you can only experience one at a time. Everybody is I, you all know you’re you and wheresoever beings exist throughout all galaxies, it doesn’t make any difference. You are all of them. And when they come into being, that’s you coming into being. You know that very well, only you don’t have to remember the past in the same way you don’t have to think about how you work your thyroid gland, or whatever else it is in your organism. You don’t have to know how to shine the sun. You just do it, like you breath. Doesn’t it really astonish you that you are the fantastically complex thing, and that you’re doing all of this and you never had any education in how to do it?

What a load of flaky nonsense. Lay off the LSD and stop trying so hard to spin people out brutha.

Music too loud, dude! I understand you are a video artist but the music and images are too distracting! We want to listen Alan Watts talking, not Alan Watts rapping on a 5 minutes of lame ambient music

X-Muslim here. my mum told me I would go to heaven forever. As a kid I would try to imagine how long forever is. I did understand it, but only for a second. It was like i knew everything, then poof it was gone.

There shouldn’t be an advertisement on this video. I don’t know why, but there just shouldn’t be. Idk

Its true you can't experience nonexistence, but that doesn't therefore mean you'll exist for ever and reincarnate… It just means when you die (stop existing) it won't bother you for the same reasons it didn't bother you before existed. Consciousness is, according to all available evidence, an emergent property of the net neurological activity in the central nervous system. Flames don't go anywhere when you put out a campfire. They stop emerging from the sustained combustion reaction, because the reaction has been stopped.

2089 anyone? Because I’m gonna be watching this a couple times a year until I do die. What a special mind he has. Or we all have 😉

It is funny to come across people I honestly never heard of and conclude the end result to be similar to what I concluded looking through complex scientific research.

I believe there are 2 possibilities as far as death is concerned. The first being reincarnation which is pretty easy to imagine and understand, however thinking outside the box I think I have it down to what truly happens. First so I don't mislead let me say I believe in God and Christ but I believe them to be a hierarchical structure of consciousness, God being the infinite one and Christ being the one who governs Earth. It is possible reincarnation is a system created by the consciousness of God and utilized as a tool by Christ. Below is a current theory I am working on if anyone cares to read the other possibility, I think if proven it will prove a number of mysteries we have not yet proven.
First taking what Einstein thought about past, present and future happening all at the same time, this would mean the grand aspect of time we do not control stands still. People claim they have no sense of time during a NDE so it is a possible look at how we know time is a construct created by man to basically count daily, monthly and yearly changes. What I think propels time forward is the basic laws of motion, basically action creates the way we dictated time to act and is why it acts on a linear forward momentum. So what happens when a person dies and are no longer bound to those constraints of time, a possible reset of sorts since reality is individualized for every one (no two lives are the same) then is should mean you are somewhat a controller for a smaller aspect of time that plays a role in your personal life. So if I can prove it resets then it means the course of actions that should happen is you die only to spring back up in the exact same moment in time you existed before free to change things and make differing decision and is possible why the multi-verse theory appears to carry a level of legitimate possibility. It is possible that perhaps our consciousness can only be supported in the section of time in which we have existed before. It is sort of reincarnation but if reality is perception and projection then it means you should be unable to perceive anything beyond the point in time in which you have already existed because it is the path of least resistance as far as projecting reality, basically it is simply more familiar to you so you radiate towards that point in time. thus creating a revolving door of existence but it needs an element of multiple time lines. So adding that it sets a rule that you cannot exist in a reality in which you have already existed since you cannot control consciousness for others (the one you died in). This would also explain why you cannot recall anything before your existence.
It is a theory I am trying to prove but also trying to develop hopefully I can get to a solution that works in favor of the theory being somewhat proven.

If u ever do show up or I find u, I'm going to choke the living shit out of u until u turn blue. Then shoot u in the head. Then set your body on fire n pour Hennessy on it

For me.
He had said basically.
You are the fabrication of the Universe. You're not a fluke in this world. You are what the whole Universe is doing at what you call here and now.

Me. Why should I care about any of that one little bit? Why does that matter? It simply doesn't.

Alan Watts was my first teacher and was the one who really turned me on, and he will always be in my heart. He had what seems like a high level of intellectual realization, and a certain amount of experiential realization. What I have found after living at an ashram and studying with a living teacher is that works while not being necessary, are crucial for me. If you can just be your completely enlightened ecstatic self, then great your probably not listening to his talks or reading this comment😂. For me and what seems like many others around me, we still have “stuff” aka samskaras, unfinished business that is in the way of the realization, the experience of ultimate reality that is you.Listening to Alan Watts is great, although I feel like it is only the beginning of uncovering who you really are.

We are here to experience consciousness on a personal level – individualised as part of the whole. To enhance the intelligence of the collective.

Although he speaks many wise words, to say such things as " You don't know how to make the sun shine, you just do it"
We/ i do not make the sun shine, none of us do.
We may have been made from atoms of the universe but it doesn't make us the whole universe, just a very small fraction of it.

if i was a school teacher i'd show this to the students they probobily only know about religius dogma and mateilisim

The fear of death is so big, that people come up with the craziest ideas to not be scared as much. Knowing this, i do it too. Some ideas are even delusional, but people will still believe it because theyre so scared

I dare to ask, why I, the God should wake up? I was hiding me from myself for a reason. Every hide and seek game ends, after finding the hiding part, so where is the point in ending a game, I once started as a last chance to bring myself out of eternal boredom?

I don’t feel emotions so I didn’t feel a single thing while watching this. It was absolutely riveting for me to watch this. I used to be extremely inspired at touched by videos like this. Now I’m absolutely hollow

The lecture is great, but the melodramatic Hans Zimmer can fuck off. The best way I could describe it is an over the top laugh track on a sitcom that carries on while whatever joke is being set up and played out. The words are profound on their own without the lowest common denominator bullshit attached.

the song is pure cancer, please stop trying to manipulate people using cheap tricks like that, have some class!

Came to listen to Alan, wound up hearing a bunch of cacophonous music instead. When sharing a video of a lecture, music is a distraction that detracts from the message you're trying to convey. I'll go check out the actual lecture, thanks for piquing my interest at least!

Trying to find myself at 4am. yesterday I was trying to learn Chinese at 4am. Am I okay in the head?

great talk, obviously. but can you not put the music with it? not trynna be a downer or anything coz i wouldn't have been able to find it myself

I love Alan Watts. His voice is so soothing. Nothing More made one of his speeches into a song called Pyre. It is worth checking out but you might want to fast forward 3 minutes in because the beginning is wave sounds for some reason. 😂❤️

Great lecture. Terrible audio. I would love to have a version where the cheesy new-age music does not drown out the lecture.

I don't understand this nonsense about how I am the whole universe. My body is made up of a finite number of particles very much smaller than even what I can see when I look out the window, much less the whole universe, and my sense of self is made from the specific organization of these particles. When they cease to be appropriately organized, I will cease to be, so I don't know how that's connected to anything else.

Waking up is no joke. This shit is no game. Death. Death is "waking up". Facing it. Realizing it. Accepting it. Then? Examining it. Exploring life beyond this perspective. Empathy is now though. Empathy is the PATH to awareness. Empathize with EVERYTHING, down to the very fibers that make up the universe. The smallest parts have smaller parts. The biggest parts have bigger parts. This is now. This moment. Breathe. Drink. Absorb. This is your time. This is everything and nothing. This is all.
The ant crosses the wet street and doesnt pride himself in doing so. Columbus sails the seas and is still talked about. Comparing perspectives, both experiences are quite similar. Imagine the size of a football field to a small insect. . . . …. just a hop and a skip for you. Imagine where you'll be next. Then go. Happy journeying. I will go ahead and tell you that your infinitely loved by me and the god in all of us. ALL of us. ALL. And we are all headed to the same place. Beyond. Nothing will stop you because nothing can. You are always. You are the smile on the sun. You are forever. Remember, no matter where you are, what you've done, who you've become, I'll always think of you, love you and wish you well FOREVER! NOTHING CAN CHANGE THAT. SO SMILE. YOUR BEAUTIFUL

What i like to know is whether there is a kind of cosmic retribution for people who did horrendous things during their lifetime, is their next experience a karmic one?

I have panic attacks about the thought of death quite often and this video always helps me out thank you

This is why atheism isn’t a religion. We are made from the universe. The universe is now self aware. I am a god. My friends are a god. Everyone and everything is a god. But then if everything is a god then there really isn’t any god. We are all equal.

Two people conversing is the Universe which has evolved to the point where it can contemplate its own existence.

ok, why does everyone describe death as falling asleep and never waking up, I don't know about anybody else but I actually dream which means that I am self conscious in my sleep, a much better way of explaining it is actually to describe it as ceasing to exist, because we've all not existed at some point therefore we should all be able to relate to that feeling you get when you just don't exist.

Who gave this genius an idea to add such shitty music at such loud volumes on this great talk.. I came here to listen to Alan watts not shitty music!

Im 11 and understand this more than what most humans would. I beileve its better to know while young so you wouldn't be terrified of your future and experiencing anxiety.so this is a great concept and us kids and school should learn these instead of doing what most kids do is play , but not me.Thanks for the Knowledge.☺️

What Is Grace? | Why Jesus Brought Grace To Save Us | The Power In The Blood Of Jesus

in the previous episode we learn about the mission that Christ came to fulfill during his first coming to the world and that he executed only two objectives to rescue us from sin and hell and to set us free from the enemy’s bondage we learned specifically that he came …
