[Inspirational Video] Playing the Game of Life by Alan Watts

[blockquote style=”1″]Making plans for the future is of use only to people who are capable of living completely in the present.[/blockquote]

In this inspirational speech by Alan Watts, he makes us question our society and the way we have been programmed to live our life a certain way. It’s a mindset that is taught to us in the early years of our lives and continues to have an impact on the way we live for the majority of our life.

The most dangerous risk of all - the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later

The problem with this mindset is that it does not encourage us to live to our full potential. We get so caught up in this system that we forget to really LIVE in the moment.  The above quote is priceless.

What’s the point of making future plans if we can’t live in the present, and enjoy truly being in the present… Remember: there is no such thing as ‘the future’, life is a construction of present moments.

The question is, are you REALLY living?
