Alan Watts explains it all

Here is a very well done video which combines snippets of talks given by Alan Watts with animation from Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park fame.

Unfortunately whoever posted this on youtube gave the whole thing the moronic title "Atheist Spirituality" - but that can be ignored. Alan Watts was about as much of an atheist as I am.

My favorite segment from the video is the one on "Appling", which starts at 3:01. A different version of what Watts says in that segment can be found in "The Book on the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are", which can now be downloaded as a pdf (clicking on this link will automatically download the file) here.
