 So much talk about what is...so much pretentious claiming about being attentive, being perceptive. If you are being condescending, does saying "that is not my intention" fix it? Or does that just show that much of what we do is unconscious? Does pretention and condescension come from a part of us we are not even aware of?

when will we end being neurotic?

Are we aware how we live affects the whole?,or we live in a reality that's fragmented that posit that the particular is free to act on its own?What's the essence of humanity ,is one blade of grass different in essence from the turf?is one human really able to act alone?or is the very assumption that one is different from the rest and the actions to actualize it is the very source of the crisis?

Why do human think in terms of individuality when they are tribal inrelation to the…

The Me

“So what takes place when living now, today, this morning, when the brain actually ceases, ends its memories, its images, its conclusions? - which is the content of consciousness - you follow? Can my brain, my consciousness, which is the 'me', can that, with all its content, come to an end, living, not at the end of another ten years through disease, living now? Can that mind, can that consciousness empty its content, therefore empty the 'me' - do you understand all this? Is that ever…

What am I?

Am I what elicits pride, or shame? Am I accomplishments, or remembered deeds?

Am I titles, or roles, or what others think about me?

Am I anything that can be held onto?

Not dying is a disease.

Say a machine were built, a machine that could keep inventing, through the mode of words, thoughts which its maker could verbally operate. Then in the verbal output of this machine, I would have a thought media, and this is what most people are talking about, and discussing together. What people are discussing are matters arising out of the verbal output of the machine; matters a result of the machines thought inventions. The maker is operating the machine to address the matters the machine…

Is it bigger than a breadbox?

There is something one must stay out of.

What that something is can only be seen after one gets out of it.

It is then that one may observe oneself falling into it and popping back out of it.

It is through that process of in and out that one may come to the understand the ins and outs of that something.

When the in of it comes to be seen as a single act, then one may say that there is something one must stop…

Information...

Information is neutral, i like this a lot.  When i am interested in something i really want to know literally all i can about it, so digging along the path of ones and zeroes is often where i find myself in life...yesterday was such a day.

seeing: mantra of the k-world

'seeing' has become the belief, ritual, prayer and tradition of the k-world..there is no such thing as seeing, it is not verifiable, just an assumption..the eyes only see abstract light and shades without thought and pre-established social knowledge allows one to recognise things of a certain particular culture or you just pass it by or have disjunctive reactions like tribals seeing a plane…

Rebellion is individual action;

it has nothing to do with the crowd.

Rebelliion has nothing to do

with politics, power, violence.

Rebellion has something to do

with changing your consciousness,

your silence, your being.

It is a spiritual metamorphosis. (osho)

Tega: revolt has nothing to do with person or crowd which perpetuate each other..revolt has nothing to do with spirituality that puts you to sleep and depoliticises your…

    questioning Paul 65 Replies

     There is looking at each other in relationship. In other words, we look together at the same time. Then there is the possibility of seeing something new. This is the whole point about it because anything else is going to be about something that has already been seen either in solitude or in other relationships. One can only bring in any of that as knowledge, as something previously discovered. It's already old and redundant. In short, it's intrinsically false. But when the urge to say…Continue

    Who am I kidding? 8 Replies

    Is there a difference between self-reflection and talking in a group? Is there a difference between self-reflection and talking about what others have said? Maybe we think there is? It is rather obvious isn't it, the talker, is one and the same. There is a difference in that there is wider and varied interaction and expression of thoughts which arise. But within the mind, this is entirely the same approach, alone or in a group. Self-reflection, if we have come to recognise it as some kind of…Continue

    Where do I start? 18 Replies

    This is a K forum, but really where does it all begin? Do I start with what K said and wrote? Do I start with what I can deliver with words, with language, as a writer, speaker? Do I start as a participant following up ideas, asking questions about what I have read, and joining in with the discussions? Do I pass back and forth comments with other contributors? Where do I actually begin? Don't I start with myself? In this case don't we start with the mind? And we don't mean the mind is the…Continue

    A busy mind. 4 Replies

    There are many things the mind doesn't understand. Throughout life the mind works to understand, and has developed a methodology of understanding. This is a working mind, a busy mind. For the approach to understanding, it uses a busy mind. When it wants an understanding, when it wants to acquire an understanding, it uses the busy mind. What it expresses as an understanding is the result of a busy mind methodology of operation. When this mind encounters an outcome not understood, because it is…Continue

    Is it possible for the brain to realise it has no future? 268 Replies

    I think this is really a most tremendous question, in the sense that it questions the nature of our own psychological activity, the same activity that is threatening human existence.It is therefore of no use whatsoever to quickly throw a few answers at it and hope that it goes away.From Talk 4, Brockwood Park, September 1978:...That is, can time come to an end? Please see why it is important. Because our brains are conditioned to time, our brains are the result of a million years and more, how…Continue
