Alan Watts on How to Make Yourself a Better Person
Can We Actually Transform Ourselves?

We humans have been concerned with transforming our minds for a very long time.  With all the problems facing the world today, we seem bent on an urgent need to improve ourselves so we can transform the world. Yet, can we in fact improve our minds, or ourselves? Or is it rather a case of being a vicious circle?

The great philosopher and Zen expert, Alan Watts, says:

“If I am in need of improving, then the person doing the improving is the very person needing the improving!”

Alan Watts wrote more than 25 books and articles on subjects important to Eastern and Western religion, introducing the then-burgeoning youth culture to The Way of Zen.

Open your mind with this profound and mind-bending talk from this potent teacher.
