Words of Wisdom for Nov. 1, 2019:
Alan Watts on Fear and Clinging

"There is nothing that men desire more than life ... In one form or another they try to possess it by every possible means, as happiness, as power, as joy, as wealth, as spiritual insight, and even as simple existence to which they cling with all their might for fear that it will be taken away. But one thing is certain: the harder you try to posess life, the faster it slips away from you, and the less you understand of its mystery."
— Alan Watts, Zen
