Gift of Giving Up

The Gift of giving Up


The following lectures

given by Alan Watts

address the conundrum-ish aim

of trying not to try,


this one making the argument

to stop trying to change the world already!



and this one acting

as an introduction to Meditation –

if you care!!!



Listen on the way to work

or before bed

(they’re an hour or so long each)

and settle into the comfort

of knowing

you’ll never be the same again.



I’ve spent an inordinate many hours

writing and thinking about all kinds of Zenso things,

none of which have helped me live

even a wee bit more “so Zen”.
