This is a one of a kind book by Alan Watts that i picked up a few weeks back. Alan Watts (if you don't already know who he was), was an english Daoist/Buddhist philosopher. His writings word things like no one ever before, and sometimes it sends a chill down my spine. In this book, he unravels the truth about who you really are. I can relate to this book very much, because i myself am buddhist, so it was an easy read. I recommend this book to anybody though, buddhist or not, as it is an eye opener. It unfolds how the ego came to be, and how you been playing hide and seek with yourself (in which you are God if you will) for thousands of years. This book led me to the thought of how close archaic man was to God. Back then, they may not have believed they themselves actually were God, but their egos were nearly unformed, and society hadn't taken ahold yet. I'm not too good with these book reviews, so sorry if this is lame, but you really should pick up this book. It could surely be a life changer.
