Description

"If you were God," asked Alan Watts, "what kind of universe would you create? A perfect one free of suffering and drama? Or one filled with surprise and delight?"

With Just So, the celebrated philosopher and self-described "spiritual entertainer" invites us to explore the hidden dimensions that shape both the cosmos and our personal experience of it.

From the 1950s to the 1970s, Eastern spiritual philosophies ignited in the West profound new ways of perceiving ourselves and the mysteries of life. And from the beginning, Alan Watts was at the forefront - sparking insight after insight at live gatherings and radio broadcasts. Today Alan Watts' books and recordings bring perennial delight to new listeners of all ages and beliefs.

Here the luminary author and speaker explores three often overlooked yet essential universal dynamics: connection, play, and pleasure. This exceptional collection of sessions includes three complementary seminars:

The Cosmic Network - a journey into the interconnected web of the personal and the infinite

Ecological Awareness - reflections on how humanity and nature evolve through discovery and "purposeless" play

The Pursuit of Pleasure - how a true materialism connects us fully through our senses with others and to the natural flow of the cosmos.

Along the way you'll explore many other themes, at turns humorous, prophetic, and more relevant today than ever. What unfolds is a liberating view of life that arises from possibility and the unpredictable - perfect and "just so" not in spite of its messy imperfections but because of them.

Alan Watts... Perfection

Alan Watts' material and voice, as a coupling, are one of my very favorite to listen to.
I highly suggest this, or any of his lectures.
Thankyou Audible for providing this amazing material!

If you've enjoyed any lecture of his on YouTube you're going to be enthralled

A combination of over 20 hours of Watts speaking of self realizations and the true meaning to life. I have new perspective for everything I have done and will do moving forward.

I'm already restarting the audiobook because of how fantastic the first 1/3 of it is. The middle half is extremely intellectual and philosophical so one might feel a sort of drone, but the final third is reward enough for sticking it out.

I recommend listening at 1.25x

Alan Watts is more relevant today than ever

We need more teachers like this in our lives. I have been listening to Alan's teachings now for a couple years. Wish I found this in my twenties. Practical advice and deconstruction of things I was taught as a child. In a time when insulation and separateness are all we hear about, it is a real eye opener to see we really haven't come as far as you think. Still lots of work to do. These are words that will ring true, if you let them.

Just so is Just so good

This is really good. I'm glad these collections keep coming out. This one is really interesting in the why it's presented. For example they put all the chapters in short clips, and that makes it easier to get back to spots you really liked. Over all the audiobook is great. Worth the money and time.

A Watts Essential

My favorite Watts series after having listened to all others. The only downfall I might say this series has is the lecture on money a quarter of the way through. After that, it is superb listening that entices you to think of the subject at hand in a way that you may have not previously considered. The last 3 lectures are particularly grand, leaving you with a smile on your face and a zest for this thing called life.

Watts: “Life is not a duty, it is a pleasure.”

Achieve higher enlightenment

What made the experience of listening to Just So the most enjoyable?

Listen to his soothing voice while he opens your mind, scrambles it like eggs and returns it to the plate.

It’s Watts, so it’s good, but...

It feels a bit cobbled together and doesn’t flow as well as it should. I would still recommend it to fans of Watts, but maybe not as a first intro to Watts. Then again, the magic is still there...

Prescient lectures

Alan Watts doesn't disappoint. These lectures have great content.
The narration does leave a bit the entertaining tone, and gets more serious at times.
Watts covers a number of topics that remain relevant today, or have become now even more relevant, such as:
- The proliferation of cheap plane flights; the globalization.
- The progressive loss of privacy, its advantages and disadvantages, and the implications for society.
All in all a very recommended listen, would happily listen again.
