Alan Watts

"Oh My God Isn’t That Gorgeous?"

We have specialized
In a certain kind of awareness
That makes us neglectful of that
You see, we specialize in more or less briefly concentrated pinpoint attention
We look at this and we look at that, and we select from all the things we might possibly be aware of only certain things
And as a result of that we leave out of our everyday consciousness, one amazing beauty of experience that we never see at all, and on the other hand, the very deep thing, the sense of our basic identity, unity with, oneness with the total process of being
See, because we are staring, as it were, at certain features of the landscape, we don’t see the background
And because we get fascinated with, you know, I could go into details of this shell, as I said, and put myself in the mind of a conch – or whatever it is that lives in this thing and say, “Hm, that’s not so hot; that one.” Like that, see?
And so I wouldn’t see the whole thing
But when I look at it like this, when anybody looks at it like that, we say, “Oh my God, isn’t that gorgeous!”

(Oh my God, isn’t that gorgeous!)
(Oh my God, isn’t that gorgeous!)
(Oh my God, isn’t that gorgeous!)
