Thank you for the nice introduction to Alan Watts. I had heard of him before but never pursued his work. I appreciate his playfulness, and his approach towards spirituality. The notion of the "divine play," is particularly interesting when considering the plight of the animals of the earth. Because it makes me wonder what kind of play they are writing, and whether or not it is an evolving play with greater implications yet? I also note the persistent confusion people have when confronting spirituality, especially the tao. It makes me wonder if the obfuscation of the subject matter, or its obliqueness, is somehow part of the play's comedy. It should be interesting to see the present unfold.
