I have never been into philosophy that much. Sure, Alan Watts’s speeches are inspiring and Confucius’s words are filled with wisdom. But whatever philosophic texts I read, they always seemed to contain a lot of theoretical “yadda yadda” and not much practical value. That was until I discovered Stoic philosophy.
I’ve pretty much read everything Alan Watts and listened to many of his lectures. He referred to himself as a “spiritual entertainer.” When I found stoicism I latched onto it for its practicality. 💯
