Man lives a portion of Life

Man journeys thru Life.man is not Life.Man runs on a road , the road is unending, similarly, man lives a portion of Life which is unending ,so to say.

Life moves thru bodies.

Man comes , stays or lives for some time on earth called his li fe time.
At death he (soul) leaves the body , After some time it comes back to another body, it may be again a body of man or a body of a lower creature, depending upon the works (karma) done in the present incarnation.

Life is everywhere and always the Same

Just like a stream in plain ground flows in various streams and sub streams (branches) similarly life flows in time- ground, the ground may be plain or rugged, but it is the same stream.Charactristics of the current may be different from the main current, but nature is the same.Similarly lif e flows.Terrains of time and circumstances may be different, but life of man flows along such terrains,undisrupted.but the nature appears different, such appearances is interpreted differently, but to the… Continue

What is self knowledge?is there any gain by such knowledge?

'Know thyself and be free'.
Also K says,Self knowledge is essential.
What is this self knowledge?By being aware can one have self knowledge?and what is self knowledge?
By self knowledge what will one gain?can we discuss?

We are not meant to destroy each other

It is our earth, not yours or mine or his. We are meant to live on it, helping each other, not destroying each other. This is not some romantic nonsense but the actual fact. But man has divided the earth, hoping thereby that in the particular he is going to find happiness, security, a sense of abiding comfort. Until a radical change takes place and we wipe out all nationalities, all ideologies, all religious divisions, and establish a global relationship - psychologically first, inwardly…

To Destroy Is To Create

To be free, you have to examine authority, the whole skeleton of authority, tearing to pieces the whole dirty thing. And that requires energy, actual physical energy, and also, it demands psychological energy. But the energy is destroyed, is wasted when one is in conflict.So when there is the understanding of the whole process of conflict, there is the ending of conflict, there is abundance of energy. Then you can proceed, tearing down the house that you have built throughout the…

    What is love, compassion? 11 Replies

    I am really interested in finding this out. It is a question, a matter that is always avoided, or the most obscure thing to people. But it may hold the key to everything else. Some may claim that they have insight first and then love comes. It does not really matter as long as it is there. So, can we go into it?Continue

    Talking about awareness. 54 Replies

    Can we look at this tendency to maintain a divisive attitude while talking about awareness? So often we are left with a personal interpretation and this is obviously not awareness. Of course if you have a point to make it may be questioning something of an unrecognized attitude, and this makes it difficult to understand. Let's say we don't start with awareness and ask, what is it we are trying to do? Please, I use the word “we” to say, you and me together, so let's not get bogged down in…Continue

    Is Revolution Enough? 40 Replies

    Krishnamurti spoke of a psychological revolution. But is revolution enough? Why not a total dissolution?The psychological is put together by the brain through thinking and memory. It is a mental construction, a mental "world," and at its center is the ego, the "I," the thinker, the self or whatever else one might choose to call it.This psychological world has no reality other than thought until it is "activated" and made physical. In other words, "the past" is brought forward into the present…Continue

    What Does it Mean to Transcend? 48 Replies

    Reading a description of thinker-thought authored by Marcus:"The nature of the self is thought. The structure of thought (hence the structure of the self) is the comparison, evaluation, judgment of memory to arrive at the most favorable outcome for the thinker -- the self. The thinker and the thought are one, a unity. There is no thought without the thinker, and vice-versa."my response was this is a good model to describe conditioning.  It seems safe to say that it is how at least 90% of the…Continue

    An Important Distinction 44 Replies

    There is a difference between what is meant by "pleasant" and what is meant by "pleasure." "Pleasant" is a sensation. "Pleasure" is a remembering of that sensation and a thinking about it.The distinction is critical. "Pleasant" is an awareness of a physical condition. "Pleasure," on the other hand, is the thinker and his thought -- " That felt good. I (i.e., the thinker) want more of it.""Pleasure" is desire. "Pleasant" is awareness.Continue

    Living and Experiencing. 9 Replies

    A friend said to me, they don't have a lot of experience, don't have much awareness of history, or culture, and think they need this to broaden themselves. But experience is always the past. History is the past. Tradition is the past. Of course I can study, research, get training, and gain skills and ability. But to actually be seeing clearly and completely understanding the world, I have only to look right now, immediately, and be alert, and there is fully all the experiencing.Continue
