Sorry I do not want to be a pig on Ning by having two blogs and/or discussions on the front page. That is not my general practice, as I like to be an example for cooperative communication, but I am going to do it as the inquiry on my other blog is getting very deep for me, and I need a spot to address many other topics that are seeming to come up here, and so write more frequently.
I used to enjoy posting on other people's blogs but I stopped doing that because of the posting of…Continue

This blog, "The Wry Trash Repository," is to post my own various and sundry thoughts and also tidbits I am finding as I comb through my old emails deleting messages, but please do not trash me here, if possible. Just about anything might be put on here. Remember, one man's trash is another person's treasure. I will probably delete most material posted by others, but not necessarily all, especially if it is thought provoking and/or funny. Warning/invitation: Anything you post here…Continue

The past is yesterday, and yesterday cannot be brought forward. But yesterday, the past, can be reconstructed . What we call the past is our version -- our memory -- of "what was," activated and made a present reality through physical reaction to that memory.Without this reconstruction of what was, the present unfolds naturally and logically from where it IS, never from the distorting where it WAS. Without this reconstruction, "the past" cannot be said to exist.Continue

"Thought in action" is more accurately characterized as thought in reaction. There is always a reason, a purpose, that stimulates the thinking process, so thinking is a reaction.But is there an action that is not the reaction of thinking? Is there such a thing as true action -- "original action" -- from which subsequent reaction springs? I would say that there is.True action is the action of awareness -- sensing and sensitivity -- and this is the choiceless action of understanding. Choiceless…Continue

Amidst the family and friends, socially, I may think I am kind and loving. There can be difficulties and annoyances but I might even understand this is an issue of my own, not distracting from the sense of kind and loving. I assume kind and loving is good behaviour towards others. When not kind and loving, annoyed, upset, disturbed, angry, even violent, I feel regret, remorse, and want to be more kind and loving. In different situations I feel justified in my actions, accepting I am not kind…Continue

My first acquaintance with Krishnamurti's work was in 1959 when I read his book The First and Last Freedom.What particularly aroused my interest was his deep insight into the question of the observer and the observed.This question has long been close to the centre of my own work as a theoretical physicist who was primarily interested in the meaning of the quantum theory.In this theory ,for the first time in the development of physics,the notion that the observer and the observed cannot be…Continue

« previous | next »Psychological security is not within the field of achievementIt seems to me that one of the greatest stumbling blocks in life is this constant struggle to reach, to achieve, to acquire. We are trained from childhood to acquire and to achieve - the very brain cells themselves create and demand this pattern of achievement in order to have physical security, but psychological security is not there in achievements.K says in Freedom from the knownCan we discuss this?what is this…Continue
