Alan Watts so beautifully captures the perspective so easy yet so difficult for so many of us to remember on a daily basis: that we are all in charge of our destiny, our connection to the divine is our connection to ourselves, and the power to shape our destiny is in our hands.
“Everybody is fundamentally the ultimate reality, not god in a politically kingly sense, but god in the sense of being the self, the deep-down basic whatever there is. And you are all that, only you are pretending you are not.”~ Alan Watts.
We are more powerful than we realize, unique and with the ability to live the lives we dream of, to harness our own imagination of a life. In this age of screens, social circles and corporate ladders it is easy to forget the true value of the soul, the limitlessness of our dreams, the love that is so important that lives within us that we have the power to tap into if we can only realize our potential. We are infinite, endless, an energy that, if realized in the waking, can take us beyond our dreams.
