And as you walked along quietly, without much thought, you saw a dead leaf, yellow and bright red, a leaf from the autumn. How beautiful that leaf was, so simple in its death, so lively, full of the beauty and vitality of the whole tree and the summer.
Strange that it had not withered. Looking at it more closely, one saw all the veins and the stem and the shape of that leaf. That leaf was all the tree.…
I have not changed the heading because the question being inquired into is, how does the memory of a movie, one (I) saw as a child and did not at all understand the gist of, turn into a story about this movie (and about stories in general) which is really not at all true, and how does seeing this movie again as an adult and now understanding the actual story line relate to human intelligence?

Hi Kumar:Your status page is not the place to discuss this. Hence here.You commented on your status that you had come to the realisation that you ought not to hurt another's sentiments via your words and so shall be deleting all such comment that had been made by you. Was it your intent to hurt another's feelings, sentiments? Can I assume a definite no? If that is the case then…Continue

All these years of participating in dialogues pertaining to K seem to have accomplished absolutely nothing. Nothing has changed in my life. Thought still rules, and where thought rules, there is no observation. Broadly speaking, of course. In the margins one might argue otherwise, but that would merely be a waste of time.Is there something I'm doing wrong. Or is there something I'm failing to do? But when I look around, much the same picture appears everywhere. And of course K did…Continue

I read this paragraph in K's book 'Facing a World in Crisis' p.103'So the brain must be quiet, but active when demanded. So there is this problem of having a very quiet, extraordinarily subtle, pliable, quick, sensitive mind that is free of the known and yet functions in the field of the known. The two must go together all the time, otherwise there is disharmony. So how is this to happen? One can see very clearly that knowledge, memory, experience are absolutely necessary, otherwise you…Continue

Do you notice, after a while, in one way or another, the posters retreat into their own private conversations? It is very difficult to work with this individualism, this authority of self, and rather than openly talk together, the poster sticks to trying to explain some point of view, some theory. Sticking to their guns, they find quotes which seem relevant to their own attitude. It may be a valid point of view, according to the individual, even with all the backing of some expert…Continue

It is important to Learn what Thinking is... Some Common Cognitive Distortions1. Mind reading. You assume that you know what people think without having sufficient evidence of their thoughts. “He thinks I’m a loser.”2. Fortune-telling. You predict the future negatively: things will get worse, or there is danger ahead. “I’ll fail that exam,” or “I won’t get the job.”3. Catastrophizing.You believe that what has happened or will happen will be so awful and unbearable that you won’t be able to…Continue

Relationship is the only thing that we have and without understanding that relationship we can never find out what reality is or God is.So to bring about a complete change in the social structure in the society the individual must cleanse his relationship and the cleansing his(her) relationship is the beginning of his own transformation. D. Q. Of K. (Book- Social Responsibility)Thus if we are concerned at all with transformation then understanding ourselves in our relationships in the society…Continue
