A Royalty Of One. We Only Rule Ourselves

“Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are.” – Alan Watts

Philosopher Alan Watts delivers one of my favorite lectures of his; a deep and fascinating talk about the nature of Jesus Christ and his message for all humankind. I have received more spiritual fruit from this one lecture than all the years I attended organized religious services.

A Buddhist philosopher reveals a deeper understanding of Christ than the Church, which claims authority over interpretation of biblical teachings..

Indeed the letter kills as the Spirit gives Life…

    Researching prohibition and the Crash I thought I’d coined tee-totalitarianism… only to discover Watts used it 4 decades ago (when I was already his fan).

    I was surprised to learn recently there is NO evidence of Jesus ever having existed. No court cases, records, nothing but apocryphal stories, hearsay and curbside observations generated fully 150 years after the era in question.

      Outside of my heart, I have no evidence He ever existed… and I am okay with that. Inspiration comes from within.
