If we pay attention, life is astonishing. The other day I was watching a movie on television. I put the movie on pause and marveled at what I was seeing. Here was a group of people who got together in the past on a movie set, following a script they memorized, wearing special wardrobes, with video and sound people all around them (whom I couldn’t see) - and here I was years later watching them on this device called a television set. I was astonished. How was this happening?
Alan Watts wrote a book about that: "Joyous Cosmology"! Thanks for reminding me.
