Alan Watts – How To Grow
Life is a pattern of immense complexity
Trying to be more aware, of the background, might then help us all to be able to understand other peoples “attitude”, better?. Sometimes even “reason” for their outspoken angry attitude, as well too ?. We need to try look past the rough-angry face-value of human-exterior, to try and fathom what it is that there might be “laying behind” this face value exterior view what we can see (via our eyes). To try to “SENSE” (as apposed to seeing with use of our eyes) what perhaps might be helping to cause OTHER PEOPLE more anger, than might otherwise not need be. Had their environment, been different than what it is ‘today”.
Could be similar, i’d hazard to guess, perhaps, to way like how some animal seem able to SENSE an earthquakes approach (animal perhaps manage to remain more in tune with their WHOLE surrounding environment?. I’d guess dud to animal also having fart less “crap” wasting space and cluttering up their minds)
That way we can then make far better choices ourselves too, in regard to how we go about ourselves to try and offer “others” our help and support
People are not necessarily born to become highly angry people?
We are far more interconnected than we realize . Our earthly environment plays a part. Our lives are not totally separate events.We live life “together as one” more than we understand?
We all help to create “our environment” ourselves (not like we are thrown into something, of like what, we then have absolutely no control over ourselves. That’s a “cop-out” on our own part. Irresponsible. A way to allow ourselves to feel righteous “about ourselves”, all the while we also get busy with judging others harshly)
At least that’s what i figure it seem to me Alan is perhaps on about. If i’m wrong, i’d like to learn
Once we understand this. Perhaps we can understand “attitudes” of loads of children born into poverty and family dysfunction, far better too
Our way of constantly just casting more and more people into jails. Or reactivating death penalty. And so on
Is not any long term an answer to problems. Is it?.It mainly serve to make OURSELVES feel more comfortable. And to hold onto a mighty selfish warped sense of righteousness
