Becoming A Better Self | Alan Watts

So it all comes down to this basic question, that human beings have for a long long time been concerned about transforming their minds. Is there any way in which one’s mind can be transformed or is it simply a process which is nothing more than a vicious circle? I could ask ‘Why have you […]

The Lesson

One day a school teacher wrote on the board the following: 9×1=7 9×2=18 9×3=27 9×4=36 9×5=45 9×6=54 9×7=63 9×8=72 9×9=81 9×10=90 When she was done, she looked to the students and they were all laughing at her, because of the first equation which was wrong, and then the teacher said the following: “I wrote that […]
