Notes from the Waxhaws

Voice from the past

with 2 comments

It’s an interesting thought I had been mulling over lately…that we already may have experienced the thing we fear most in life. Death…or non-being, to be exact.  But that’s the catch…you can’t really experience non-being. None of us have. In reality, when you think about it…death may not even exist.

Lately, I’ve been hearing familiar voices from the past…resurfacing back into my consciousness. One of these voices belonged to Alan Watts, a philosopher and writer who helped popularize Eastern philosophies. This evening, I was playing with the new Google Now search application on my iPhone (I never cease to be amazed at where technology is taking us)…and spoke a command into the phone, “Show me some videos by Alan Watts.” After just a few seconds of virtual whirring…the following YouTube video popped up on the screen and started playing.  A synchronicity…that strangely echoed back to me what I had been musing on the last few days. I was somewhat dumbfounded…and listened to it several times.
