Do you hear the music?

Philosopher Alan Watts explains that there is a danger in thinking life is a journey, some sort of a pilgrimage with a purpose at the end. Life is to be lived along the way… in the same way that music is to be enjoyed. If music were only about endings, composers would only write finales, he says. There isn’t some destination you’re supposed to arrive at. Life is music all along. Watts says, “This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.” This is what I’m thinking about today.
