Alan Watts, popularizing Eastern philosophy to the Western world in a speech about our relationship to the universe.

“Why don’t you really know what you want? Two reasons that you don’t really know what you want: #1 You have IT! #2 You don’t know yourself, because you never can. The Godhead is never an object of it’s own knowledge. Just as a knife doesn’t cut itself, fire doesn’t burn itself, light doesn’t illumine itself. It’s always an endless mystery to itself.” – Alan Watts

“That which IS the Knower, the Ground of All knowledge, is never Itself an object of knowledge.” – Shankara

“The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.” – Aart Van Der Leeuw
