Zen of Watts...  
I've found I've developed my own form of meditation and relaxation based on Alan Watts' voice. I focus on the tone and sound of his voice, and I choose different recordings depending on what kind of mood I'm in or what kind of state I wish to put myself in. I'll go through a few sometimes looking for exactly the right speech to correctly alter my state and mood.

The message doesn't hurt either, I suppose. That comes first some days, and secondary on others.

Alan Watts is the sound and color of my mantra.
Mood: relaxing...
Music: Alan Watts - Ecozen: Introduction to Zen

Me too. Even reading his books does the trick. But I'm ever grateful to Patrick for bringing us all the recordings.

I like to throw a lecture on low volume and just have it as soothing background talking to accompany me as I fall asleep.

Agreed, he's definately one to keep you energized and up.

Robert Anton Wilson, however, is somewhere in between.
