    1. Experience the Transcendent Moment of Cosmic Consciousness | slehar
      • In his book This Is It: and Other Essays on Zen and Spiritual Experience (1958) Alan Watts discusses the experience of “cosmic consciousness”
      • I have had that experience of cosmic consciousness on more than one occasion, and indeed, I believe I can intellectualized it so that anyone can have that experience by just adopting the right perspective.
      • And perhaps the most incredible of all the mysteries of the universe is the fact that a semi-intelligent ape-man whose brain is made of living tissue, can have a conscious experience of himself and of a local piece of the universe as if his mind can extend out of his skull and make direct contact with the world around him.
      • The ignorant man marvels at the exceptional; the wise man marvels at the common. – Jonathan Edwards
