Alan Watts was a writer, speaker and philosopher who brought eastern philosophy to western spiritual seekers. (1) He was and still is loved by many in the spiritual community, and his large volume of writings and lectures is considered by many to be a great source of wisdom.

In this article I’d like to share and discuss some quotes from Alan Watts, which exemplify who he was and what he understood about life, spirituality and our connection with All That Is.

Alan Watts on Love, Life and Spirituality

This first quote come from, which tells us that awakening brings awareness of our unity with all creation — and the ego isn’t involved.

“… When you really understand that you are what you see and know, you do not run around the country-side thinking, ‘I am all this.’ There is simply ‘all this.’” (2)

He also tells us that the individual moments that make up life fade as quickly as they come. When we stop worrying about those moments, we’re left with the eternal Now; one endless moment of which we’ve been unaware.

“Our experience is altogether momentary. From one point of view, each moment is so elusive and so brief that we cannot even think about it before it has gone. From another point of view, this moment is always here, since we know no other moment than the present…

“It is always dying, always becoming past more rapidly than imagination can conceive. Yet at the same time it is always being born, always new, emerging just as rapidly from that complete unknown we call the future. Thinking about it almost makes you breathless.” (3)
