Why Life Isn’t Serious | Alan Watts, Sadhguru, and Taoism

In this podcast, we will explore whether or not life is really serious. Alan Watts was famous for asking his audiences if life is serious and this is also expounded by modern-day spiritual teachers such as Sadhguru. But this is nothing new. Eastern spirituality reveals that life fundamentally isn’t serious once we transcend the identity/ego we have been trained to become because it is that isolated ego which takes everything seriously due to the illusion of separation.
