On Friendship

When we are asked about action and have lived only on words, see what happens? We resort to anything we can, verbally, in order to distract attention away from the fact that really, deeply, we don’t know what to do. Not you personally, but humanity globally, universally, although you are free to take it personally if you wish. You are free to turn what is rather plainly and bluntly stated into an insult if that’s what you want to do. We don’t know what to do as…

Awareness and the self-deception.

Is it just me? Listening to the thoughts on the brain, don’t you find it extraordinary to be aware the brain is functioning and this mental action is a substitute for actual awareness? What’s more a lot of this brain activity is defining the way we think, motivating us to do things, and holding us to think this way we live, along with our ideas, is clearly right and with good reason? You will particularly notice this when you are not sure what to do, you are wondering what to do, you are…

Meaning:You as Kant or Si or any other human else do not have reality.Neither myself Kant is also there as a reality.Therefore one should not feel sorrow or any kind of agony.

It means nothing else exists other than the Great Brahman in…

'Statue game in awareness

When i come close to what i am, what am I supposed to do.

I am conditioned in school that I should do what is good. If i do wrong i will be punished. Human beings are amenable to correction. This is what we generally do when we are aware of what we are.

But is there correction in the process of awareness. OR more importantly are we supposed to play the statue game. We don't move at all. No movement from bad to good. No effort to change from violent to nonviolent. But just to…

saving thought

When one really questions oneself , suspending all search for answers from memory , what is one’s state of mind ?

the energy in the mind is looking

not going into thought



thought is a major consumer of energy



with energy comes insight…

The First Step

What on earth can the first step be?  I don't know, but I do think it has to be something and I also feel that it must take place here, in the world of reality. I'm not drawn in or persuaded by theories, ideas, ideologies, philosophies, nor am I influenced by some conclusion or conclusive assertion or by someone saying, "there is no first step for me, I'm already beyond any step."  It may be a meditation, going into this question, because really, I don't think it demands a positive…

On awareness and time

Being Unaware generally we live in this world.

Can we be aware, if not always but at  sometime?

probably awareness is totally independent of time.

If at some moment one can be aware then it will be a great factor for one's transformation now 

Otherwise never.

Fake lives.

You may have seen them on TV, a panel of personalities, talking about a topic. There maybe even be some experts. The contributors are looking at the matter as if watching TV, reading a book, or newspaper, and reporting on the superficial information. Superficial in that it is not immediate to one’s life experience. It is much like a group of people at a coffee shop having a chit chat. Can you see what kind of response you are giving when you are in this situation? Each person adds a comment…

Extraordinary living is paramount for love to be.

Only in extraordinary living there is a chance for love to be.ordinary living is far far away from Love.

    Flight of the Eagle. 76 Replies

    "If you see all this with complete clarity it is like the flight of the eagle that leaves no mark in the air."Questioner: I find I get dreadfully attached to people and dependent on them. In my relationships this attachment develops into a sort of possessive demand which brings about a feeling of domination. Being dependent, and seeing the discomfort and pain of it, I try to be detached. Then I feel terribly lonely, and unable to face the loneliness I escape from it through drink and in other…Continue

    Truth is not of the past or of the present. 197 Replies

    Truth is not of the past or of the present, it is timelessThere is no path to truth and there are not two truths. Truth is not of the past or of the present- it is timeless - and the man who quotes the truth of the Buddha, of Shankara, of the Christ, or who merely repeats what I am saying, will not find truth because repetition is not truth: repetition is a lie. Truth is a state of being which arises when the mind -which seeks to divide, to be exclusive, which can only think in terms of…Continue

    You only give yourself away when you tell someone how they feel. 5 Replies

    Everything you say bounces off me and sticks on you. To think you can tell someone what they are doing is clear evidence of a manipulative judgmental authoritarian.  Perhaps you're not clear that you're avoiding the problem by talking about an illusion when everyone who reads your words can see right through you. In short, you would hate it if you knew that you're giving yourself away. Perhaps this will show you how it feels to have someone tell you how you feel? It's just silly. Is it…Continue

    Can there be observation, with or without judgement or condemnation or any other reaction? 19 Replies

    When something appears to assert, often the birth of a you or me, is a judgement or condemnation, in regards to such an assertion. IF sensation for an e.g. gets labeled as fear, and felt, the reaction may be about trying to understand why I am feeling this fear, or what I can do about it. Both reactions assume division, thus conflict and violence. If the reaction to a reaction is just another aspect to the initial assertion, then there is no birth of a me, no separateness in regards to such an…Continue

    Origin of THought 26 Replies

    In a series of discussions, JK has also talked about what thought is and its impacts and ramifications in the world of man. For example that thought is divisive, is the past; that thought is memory, etc.However, there is seemingly devoid discussion on the real origin of thought. All that is talked much about thought is its consequences, impacts, and so on. So what is the origin or cause of thought, or thinking?Continue

Then we must not speak of any change at all.
