Today’s hike was on three of the Cougar Mountain trails. Wilderness Creek, Wilderness Peak and Wilderness cliffs. Great hike, very refreshing and recharging. Couple quotes from Alan Watts that stuck out today.
On describing any the non Christian approach to describing God.
“A different way of relating to the ineffable mystery that underlies ourselves and the world.” I really felt vindicated with this quote as a person that doesn’t follow the norm.
On the teachings of Buddahism and why gurus are so strict.
“Allowing relaxation through strict discipline.” This is what I’m trying to achieve with my art, strict discipline will some day yield effortless mastery some day.
