Bag of Skin


Alan Watts was the author of more than 25 books on spirituality, Buddhism and philosophy. He was absolutely direct and uncompromising in deconstructing the common ideas, assumptions and beliefs which are propagated in society. Although not officially belonging or adhering to any one system or religion, he influenced many through his sharp insight and humor.

"I find that the sensation of myself as an ego inside a bag of skin is really a hallucination. What we really are is, first of all, the whole of our body. And although our bodies are bounded with skin, and we can differentiate between outside and inside, they cannot exist except in a certain kind of natural environment. Obviously a body requires air, and the air must be within a certain temperature range. The body also requires certain kinds of nutrition. So in order to occur the body must be on a mild and nutritive planet with just enough oxygen in the atmosphere spinning regularly around in a harmonious and rhythmical way near a certain kind of warm star.

That arrangement is just as essential to the existence of my body as my heart, my lungs, and my brain. So to describe myself in a scientific way, I must also describe my surroundings, which is a clumsy way getting around to the realization that you are the entire universe. However we do not normally feel that way because we have constructed in thought an abstract idea of our self."

Are we there yet?

There is nothing outside of this moment, this present, this presence... this WHAT-IS...

What IS doesn't move, doesn't go anywhere, didn't come from the future and go into the past. Nothing arrived, nothing departed. There is and ever was only THIS, this unchanging Reality.

How long is the present? When did this moment start? When will it end? Let's wait and see.

Has it ended yet?

Has it ended yet?

Will it ever?

Time is only a conceptual measurement, only a mental idea. This present isn't going anywhere. It is endless and beginningless. And what is the reality, the only true reality of this present?

It is YOU. Not "you" the individual. YOU, this ever-present presence, this singular IS-ness. You are timeless.
