Feltness Flowing Freedom

“…the realization that nature is ordered organically rather than politically, that it is a field of relationships rather than a collection of things, requires an appropriate mode of human awareness. The habitual egocentric mode in which man identifies himself with a subject facing a world of alien objects does not fit the physical situation. So long as it remains, our inward feeling is at variance with reality. Based on this feeling, our efforts to control ourselves and the surrounding world become viciously circular entanglements of ever-growing complexity. More and more the individual feels himself frustrated and impotent in the midst of a mechanical world order which has become an irresistable ‘march of progress’ toward ends of its own…

An organic natural order has its proper correspondence in a mode of consciousness which is a total feeling or experiencing.” Alan Watts – Nature, Man and Woman
