Maybe the would be a happier place if everyone of us would think about the topic of this video at least once or twice a week. Besides Alan Watts’ words and the used recordings, this video stands out because of its great choice of music. (Updated April 3rd for every Italian speaker out there: Di sotto si trova adesso un video in Italiano anche :))

What If Money Was No Object? – Alan Watts

Ludovico Einaudi’s “Divenire” is simply wonderful. If you’re in the mood for a calm violine and piano track you should listen to the entire piece. Prepare yourself, it’s one of the most emotional pieces that I know. [Added on March 20th 2013:] I’m so glad that I just found a live recording and that it’s 8 minutes long:

Ludovico Einaudi – "Divenire" – Live @ Royal Albert Hall London

Here are the first and second part (including “Divenire”) of the entire concert:

Some of you might recognize Ludovico Einaudi’s style from the movie “Untouchable” where his work was used and sometimes a bit extended by himself as in “Una Mattina”. Here’s a great cover by “acuity1980” for you 🙂

Interesting background on the soundtrack in the Alan Watts speech (I think the video content doesn’t exist any longer and you may consider replacing it!?). I heard of Einaudi before, but I wasn’t aware that it’s actually one of his songs in the “What if money was no object” video… Cheers!
