Zen Master Alan Watts on the Mind & Ethics

Alan Watts – You have a soul, you are not your mind, though perhaps here as the existentialists say, “existence precedes essence” — Alan Watts: “leave your mind alone. It will quiet itself.” To think about thinking is a cardinal error Just do your thinking, pay a LOT of attention to what’s going on around you, don’t “skip steps” and try to enjoy life. Alan Watts speak on worrying and compulsive thinking. As Jesus said, “will worrying the morrow so much as add a cubit to your height?” The martial artist Bruce Lee said, “What worries you, mastersyou.” This is profound, and Zen has many answers for us.

The Problem With Goal Setting

Vishen Lakhiani of Mindvalley Academy asks us, do we really want to spend our lives pursuing the factors (“means goals”) which usually lead to an “end game” of successful enjoyment, or do we want to cut to the chase, so to speak, and simply enjoy one (or more) of three, process oriented “ultimate” or “end” sort of goals which all humans normally hope for: experiences, personal growth and/or contribution to society and your friends as well.)

Philip Goff and the Solution of Panpsychism to the Mind-Body Problem

A master science and philosophy popularizer Philip Goff asks in one of the wonderful Pocket articles (which are default on the ‘new tab’ in the Firefox web browser), the question “Consciousness: How Can I Experience Things That Aren’t ‘Real’?.” This is the “mind-body problem” which science, psychiatry and philosophy have been trying to answer for centuries, really since the early Greek philosophers. Traditionally there have been two, opposed main answers in philosophy, dualism and materialism. Thus we have the philosophical schools of idealism and materialism. Here we discuss Goff’s wonderful writings on the subject, and evidence, including good scientific evidence, that a third view might be more correct, called “panpsychism.” Read More …

Substance Abuse: Hope with Addiction and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders

Excerpt: What happens with so-called “normal” people, generally, is that their brain releases a feel-good secretion which is a chemical called an “endorphin” in a regular and normal way. But with people who are addicted to some drug (or behavior), such as any obsessive-compulsive disorder, the brain gets “trained” to only release the endorphins when stimulated by the drug or behavior. In other words the drug/behavior serves as a trigger for the brain to release the endorphins. Without the addictive substance (or behavior), the individual then feels bad, and feels that he has to get more of the drug, or engage in more of the obsessive-compulsive behavior, to feel good, which is absolutely true. Perhaps, however, there is hope Read More …
