Life is NOT a Journey - Alan Watts
Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. His philosophies seem to transcend ego, politics and limitations. His monologues have a powerful way of connecting distant abstract ideas with the present moment and his words have a unique way of putting life into perspective. Life is a gift.

Happiness is NOT the Meaning of Life - Alan Watts
Some of history's greatest philosophers have spent their entire lives writing about the meaning of life. Why are we here? Surely there must be a reason? Many people in western culture believe the meaning of life is to "be happy". Alan Watts has a brilliant way of eloquently challenging this notion. If we were to live in a state of eternal bliss, then bliss would become dull. Without darkness, there would be no light. Without pain, there would be no pleasure. Happiness is based in perspective. Embrace every aspect of life, the good and the bad, and learn to see the beauty in it. Please help us keep this channel running by supporting us on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/AfterSkool .

10 Life Lessons From The Taoist Master Lao Tzu (Taoism)
In this video we will be talking about 10 Life Lessons from the Taoist master, Lao Tzu. Lao Tzu is considered to be the founder of Taoism and is also credited as the writer of Taoism’s most sacred text, Tao Te Ching. So here are 10 Taoism lessons that we can learn from Lao Tzu 01. Look within and you will find everything you need 02. By letting go, you become free 03. Let go of your labels if you truly want to know yourself 04. Pay no attention to evil and it will crumble away 05. Kindness and compassion for others will always win in the end 06. Be yourself without caring what others think 07. Wisdom and strength come from remaining humble 08. Change is inevitable, so embrace it, even if it seems uncomfortable 09. Learn to follow first if you ever wish to lead 10. Always go with the flow Taoism is a Chinese philosophy attributed to Lao Tzu which contributed to the folk religion of the people primarily in the rural areas of China and became the official religion of the country under the Tang Dynasty. Taoism is therefore both a philosophy and a religion. Taoism teaches to embrace wonder and the joy in living gracefully with style. Lao Tzu is a central figure in Chinese culture, but his words can apply to people all over the world. Hope we could add value with this video.

Spiritual Materialism - Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche (Dorje Dradul) -Shambhala
http://www.youtube.com/user/TrungpaRinpoche Enlightenment is the highest thing that we could ever achieve ... We all know that... But at the same time we have a lot of problems with that. So presenting the teaching of spirituality properly, that you have to have very good understanding of basic sanity. And also you have to have a good understanding of basic materialism, spiritually. And we have a coined this word called "spiritual materialism". Naropa University 1974 ©1974 by Diana J. Mukpo.

Bill Hicks - Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever. Because this is just a ride!
The world is like a ride at an amusement park and when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question; is this real or is this just a ride. And other people have remembered and they come back to us and they say: "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever. Because this is just a ride..."
