"Can you allow your mind to be quiet?"

British philosopher Alan Watts poses the question in his speech on worry, which he describes as "a mind in the grip of vicious circles." Tragedy & Hope wonderfully illustrates the cycle of worry in the video above, layering visual elements with Watts' original speech on the subject.

"Once you've learned to think you can't stop. And an enormous number of people devote their lives to keeping their minds busy and feel extremely uncomfortable with silence."

If that sounds familiar, take a moment to really listen to what Watts has to say. Need some tips for quieting your own mind? Check out our meditation section here.
