Book: Become What You Are by Alan Watts

Alan Watts is one of my favorite authors/thinkers. I recently stumbled on this book of his in a podcast, and immediately ordered it. Fittingly, it has a mirror front and center in the book. One of my favorite personal sayings is:

The world is a beautiful mirror.

Dan Friesen

On page 10 of this book, Watts cites these words:

The perfect man employs his mind as a mirror; it grasps nothing; it refuses nothing; it receives, but does not keep.


I think I could reflect on that statement for years, and probably spend the rest of my life learning how to live it out.

This book lands on my list of books to re-read for sure. In Watts unique style, it is packed with thought-provoking ideas. Enjoy.
