A Happy Death

Alan Watts ~ A Happy Death



Published on Apr 15, 2014
What is the true function of an educator? What is education? Why are we educated? Are we educated at all? Because you pass a few examinations, have a job, competing, struggling, brutalizing ambition, is that education? What is an educator? Is he one who prepares the student for a job, merely for a job, for technical achievement in order to earn a livelihood? That is all we know at present. There are vast schools, universities where you prepare the youth, boy or girl, to have a job, to have technical knowledge so that he or she can have a livelihood. Is that alone the function of a true educator? There must be something more than that, because it is too mechanical. So you say that the educator must be an example. You agree with that? You will have to follow the truth of the matter, to go into it. When you go into it you will see the truth of it, namely, no example is necessary. - Krishnamurti, J.

    Alan Watts - Death Is Only The Beginning



    Published on Oct 12, 2014
    Death is only the beginning. The first step of transcendence is the stage of exploring death. Death in it's pure form is simply an experience of shifting realms. There is no up without a down, hot without cold, dark without light, life without death. But life and death are only a fragment of this reality, as all spirit based life and phenomenon lives beyond life and death, in the here and now realm where everything is happening now. Past lives and future lives are all happening in conjunction with the present life, as time does not exist in realms outside of this one. In order for one to transcend the cycles of physical incarnation one must be open and willing and fully accepting of one's own personal death.
