The meaning of life…

I found this fun, almost South Park-esque animation of an Alan Watts speech that does a nice job of explaining the meaning of it all. I have this speech on an old cassette tape and have listened to it often. Watts could communicate the most complex philosophical thoughts in the most engaging and light-hearted manner.

Life is not a means to an end. There is no destination other than right here and right now. Watts’ music metaphor is compelling. There was a quote on the Orientation folder about this: “It’s good to have an end to journey toward, but it’s the journey that matters in the end.” Ursula LeGuin
