Alan W. Watts, renowned for his interpretations of Eastern philosophy for Western audiences, shares timeless principles that have benefitted generations seeking serenity from life's uncontrollable circumstances in The Wisdom of Insecurity: A Message for an Age of Anxiety. When we spend our emotional energy reliving the past and worrying about the future, we lose the only moments we truly have in the here and now. Drawing from Eastern thought and religion, Watts reveals that the secret to living a fulfilling life is to live for today. Our quest to achieve a completely stable and secure environment is fueling our anxieties. Only by acknowledging the truth—that we cannot predict tomorrow's events and outcomes—will enable us find and cherish our joys in the present. "Perhaps the foremost interpreter of Eastern disciplines for the contemporary West, Watts had the rare gift of ‘writing beautifully the unwritable.'"—Los Angeles Times
