Alan Watts – Falling in love

Il y a des écrits qui résonnent en nous, nous font vibrer, pleurer, sourire, rêver, vivre

Il y  a des tourbillons qui s’emmêlent et se démêlent dans nos esprits, nos vies, nos rêves

Il y a des mots qui blessent, bousculent, transcendent, aident

et puis il y a les images

Celles qui retranscrivent nos idées, nos pensées, nos envies

Celles qui émeuvent ou écoeurent mais qui jamais ne laissent indifférentes

Et il y a des découvertes, perpétuelles, continuelles, mouvantes et passées

Et qui donnent espoir, encore et toujours…

Cette vidéo je l’ai découverte lors du confinement, j’ai trouvé le montage du film HER de Spike Jonze (que j’adore !!) absolument magnifique avec ce discours d’Alan Watts que je ne connaissais pas, j’en ai frissonné de curiosité et de ravissement alors je la partage….

C’est ce genre de poésie que j’aimerai pouvoir expérimenter à nouveau avec mon appareil… un jour, bientôt !

Well now really when we go back into falling in love.
And say, it’s crazy. Falling. You see? We don’t say « rising into love. »
There is in it the idea of the fall. And it goes back, as a matter of fact, to extremely fundamental things.
That there is always a curious tie at some point between the fall and the creation.
Taking this ghastly risk is the condition of there being life. You see, for all life is an act of faith an act of gamble.
The moment you take a step, you do so on an act of faith because you don’t really know that the floor’s not going to give under your feet.
The moment you take a journey, what an act of faith. The moment that you enter into any kind of human undertaking in relationship, what an act of faith.
See, you’ve given yourself up.
But this is the most powerfull thing that can be done. Surrender. See.
And love is an act of surrender to another person.
Total abandonment. I give myself to you. Take me. Do anything you like with me. See.
So, that’s quite mad because you see, it’s letting things get out of control. All sensible people keep things in control.
Watch it, watch it, watch it.
Security? Vigilance? Watch it. Police? Watch it. Guards? Watch it.
Who’s going to watch the guards?
So, actually, therefore, the course of wisdom, what is really sensible, is to let go, is to commit oneself, to give oneself up and that’s quite mad. So we come to the strange conclusion that in madness lies sanity.
