Daily Inspirational Message for December 22, 2013


“Philosopher Alan Watts used to talk about how the whole world is wiggling all the time. Clouds, trees, sky, water, human beings: Everything’s constantly shimmying and jiggling and waggling. One of our problems, Watts said, is that we’re ‘always trying to straighten things out.’ We feel nagging urges to deny or cover up or eliminate the wiggling. ‘Be orderly,’ we command reality. ‘Be neat and composed and predictable.’ But reality never obeys. It’s forever doing what it does best: flickering and fluctuating and flowing…I encourage you to rebel against any natural tendencies you might have to fight the eternal wiggle. Instead, celebrate it. Rejoice in it. Align yourself with it.”
