We live in an age of unprecedented anxiety. Spending all our time trying to anticipate and plan for the future and to lamenting the past, we forget to embrace the here and now. We are so concerned with tomorrow that we forget to enjoy today. Drawing from Eastern philosophy and religion, Alan Watts shows that it is only by acknowledging what we do not—and cannot—know that we can learn anything truly worth knowing. In The Wisdom of Insecurity, he shows us how, in order to lead a fulfilling life, we must embrace the present—and live fully in the now. Featuring an Introduction by Deepak Chopra.

A LIFE changer!!
I have read this book so many times that I almost have it memorized. I’m at the place where I can say, “Got it!” That doesn’t mean one has to agree with every word—merely that you understand where he’s coming from—what it most likely meant to him. It is a book that I would pass around to others.
I don't know where I would be Today without watts... He is truly the best there was... Pick up this book and take your consciousness back to the essence.
