the dream of life alan watts

LU Movie Script

Just finished writing a script which you could definitely say is the Live Unbound movie. If you’re interested in reading it then you can download it here. Feel free to send it to anyone. I’m looking for input and who better to ask then fellow Live Unbounders!  

It’s a story about the importance of uncertainty, vulnerability and challenge in life’s pursuits and the dissatisfaction that occurs when they’re avoided.

It's inspired by this excerpt of “The Dream of Life” by Alan Watts.

“Let’s suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream you wanted to dream. And you would naturally, as you began on this adventure of dreams, fulfill all your wishes. You would have every kind of pleasure during your sleep. And you would say 'Well that was pretty great!' But now let’s have a surprise, let’s have a dream which isn’t under control, where something is going to happen to me and I don’t know what it's going to be. You would dig that and come out saying, ‘Wow that was a close shave, wasn’t it?’ Then you would get more and more adventurous and you would make further and further gambles what you would dream. And finally, you would dream where you are now. You would dream the dream of living the life that you are actually living today. That would be within the infinite multiplicity of choices you would have.”
