Alan Watts, Sri Ramakrishna, gods, demons and the Vedas

 

The Whole which attempts to explain itself must do so by issuing the Word, and in doing so it alters the Whole, and thus cannot explain itself, for it is no longer the same as that which it was attempting to explain.

 

“It is rather that when the dust falls from before our eyes, human beings are themselves the gods and demons, acting out, not the piddling business of worldly life, but the great archetypical situations and dramas of the myths. The gods are the archetypes, but they exist as perpetually incarnate in ourselves.”

                                    Alan Watts (The Two Hands of God, p13)

 

I sink when I try to swim, and fly when I let myself fall.

 

“After the creation the Primal Power dwells in the universe itself. She brings forth this phenomenal world and then pervades it. In the Vedas creation is likened to the spider and its web. The spider brings the web out of itself and then remains in it. God is the container of the universe, and also what is contained in it.”

                                    Swami Nikhilananda, The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna
