Sunset Quotes: Alan Watts
“To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.” – It is such a simple lesson, so easily understood, but so very incredibly hard to apply to our lives. The main goal of Buddhism is to lessen suffering, and much of this suffering is brought on by our clinging to ideas, people, or things. I do this all the time… It is very difficult, but sometimes you do have to just have faith that things will work out. Of course it is not a bad idea to move around a little, and tread that water.
