Publisher's Summary

Life is the ultimate game of hide and seek... and the good news is that you're it! With the combination of playful irreverence and penetrating insight that made him a legend in Western philosophy, Alan Watts investigates the surprisingly liberating concept of "the universe as play" found at the heart of Hinduism, Zen, and other wisdom traditions.

Carefully selected by his son and archivist Mark Watts, You're It: On Hiding, Seeking, and Being Found features more than 10 hours of newly restored historic talks from the "spiritual entertainer" who helped define Eastern thought to audiences in the West. Here is a rare chance for listeners to experience the enduring brilliance of one of the greatest spiritual voices of the 20th century.

My greatest teacher - Alan Watts

"You can't blame anyone else for the world that you're in. And if you know that I, in the sense of the person/the front/the ego, really doesn't exist, than it won't go to your head too badly if you wake up and discover that you're God".
This is Alan Watts closing sentence for this recording and it summarize everything! Masterpiece 🙏🏻❤️

Thought provoking

It seems a bit ironic to me that in being asked to set aside thinking, I felt so compelled to think. Even so, I felt this book walked with me on my journey.

I'm happy I read this

What did you love best about You're It!?

I did not find that this has anything to do with hiding, seeking, or being found. But that's fine because Watts helped to broaden my thinking.

Great but watch out. Be careful before buying

Any additional comments?

Be careful when buying this audio book or any audio book being packaged with Alan Watts lectures because it seems they fill these audiobooks with the same lectures so if you buy two different books you might actually be buying the same thing twice. Unfortunately there is no way to figure this out ahead of time

Great listen, with amusing explanations

Great to hear a full lecture by Alan Watts, best parts are his humerus explanations and break downs of everyday situations and functions that we are not completely aware of. I would definitely listen to this audio book again, An inspirational person who simplify's aspects of life we rarely seem concensus of.

Just go on Youtube

One can find all these lectures on YouTube so I don't see the point in buying this audiobook. Recording quality isn't that good either.
