Alan Watts (British philosopher, writer, speaker) wrote “our attitude to the world outside of us is largely hostile. We are forever conquering, nature, space, mountains, deserts, bacteria and insects instead of learning to cooperate with them in a harmonious order.” This is one those observations built for deep reflection. I wonder how many opportunities I have missed to make a positive difference simply because I was unaware of the way I was operating in the world.
