Self-Research

Let us see what Self is. It is very important to bear in mind that each one’s idea of self is different. There is no need for comparison. Stop comparing your Self with the others’. Each one’s way of life is unique hence one way is not superior to another. One way is just one way… nothing else. There is no high way and there is no low way. Just look at your Self. Nothing else, just look. We know it goes totally against our conditioning. But just look at your Self. Just be aware of your…

Illusion

Let me share what I see with regard to illusion and explore its relationship to our consciousness, our awareness. I think this is very important because if one can be clear and certain with regard to illusion, knowing what it is and bring it out in the open and examine it, then I think one can be clear and intelligent. What is illusion?  If I see a snake and as I come closer and after examining it I realize that in actuality it is a rope, then I have discovered that the snake was an…

Intelligence

The question of intelligence was raised in the chat room. This is my non-chatty response:

I shall put the question to myself as to what I think it means, to be intelligent. The platform from which I shall make that dive into the field from which definitions arise is the following JK quote I found on the web: “The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.”…

ANARCHY: An interview with Noam Chomsky

May 2013  

The following is the adapted text of an interview that first appeared in Modern Success magazine.So many things have been written about, and discussed by, Professor Chomsky, it was a challenge to think of anything new to ask him: like the grandparent you can’t think of what to get for Christmas because they already have everything.

So I chose to…

The Distance of Comprehension; Redux:

I concluded my prior blog with a question of sorts: “The question to be answered here is how the seed of that global observing is to be planted. I think that there are several ways of planting that seed, but I leave off here for any suggestions you, dear reader, can off up here. My interest appears to be one of getting this ball rolling and see where it rolls to.”

Shashikant inquired, “When we say we are watching, are not we…

The creator of bitcoin is john nash and why this is important....

Before you huff about it understand something.



First of all, this hit me as a revelation like a brick wall but I know its correct.



2nd, the attitude you have towards bitcoin is built into his formula.



Bitcoin is a dormant seed useless on its own without its catalyst.



The catalyst is the discovery of its creator.



The psedoname give for bit coin was

And if you rearange it you get

The Distance of Comprehension:

“Is it not possible to live in this world without ambition just being what you are? If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation. I think one can live in this world anonymously, completely unknown, without being famous, ambitious, cruel. One can live very happily when no importance is given to the self; and this also is part of right education.” (JK, Think on These Things, p.…

Today is the Day of Fools:

What is a sense of self? It is something everyone reading these words has. It is a grasp in which the one doing the grasping is recognized as the grasped. It is a grasping in which the grasped is the one doing the grasping. It is something everyone reading these words is. If I have a sense of self, I am that I am.

Self-knowing is the knowing in which the one known is the one doing the knowing. It is the field in which the doer…

    At work, or with the computer at home, talking with someone about a technical problem, where it is difficult to pinpoint what it is and what exactly you are having difficulty with, and not being able to frame a precise question, it usually requires setting out very clear, unmistakable steps, for the other person to easily follow and repeat, and see the problem, if at all.However, so often, after it is all done, perhaps later, perhaps someone different, they come back with a very polite, very…Continue

    Time 84 Replies

    I want to look into time, not only as a crucial issue in meditation, but to see if it's possible to live without time psychologically and what that would mean, what are the implications etc. I will be reading what K has to say about time and I will be exploring and relating my own investigation, inquiry.  Surely, living without time psychologically must be an extraordinary thing, it is an extraordinary thing, it means living in the present.  As I, am both the teacher and the student, both the…Continue

    Happiness 2 Replies

    Do you think it is possible to be simultaneously happy and aware that one is happy? Similarly, is it possible to love someone/something and at the same time be aware that you love them?K said that as soon as thought butts in saying "I am happy," "I love this," then it is no longer happiness. When asked, he said that he did not know if he was happy.Does anyone have any thoughts?Continue

    Subconscious. 3 Replies

    Someone was talking about the conscious and the subconscious. It was an interesting way of talking about this thing called a subconscious. They said the conscious, all what occupies the mind in the ordinary environment, all this dominates the mind. The subconscious works through the conscious, and is mostly unable to be freely expressed.The conscious state of conditioning operates with regard to the normal circumstances, while a subconscious state of conditioning is hidden away from conscious…Continue

    A place in the world. 1 Reply

    I wonder do you think about your place in the world? What are important issues? A lot of what I think about is prompted by TV, Radio, Internet, Movies. Very little is actually from other people. People seem to be just getting on with the business of life, or is it the disaster, and rarely talk about issues. Yet in retrospect there are themes, and there are policies, and there are trends, as there are fears, and people do harbour these psychologically. Even if I think, obviously, I have a place…Continue

    The Case Against Conditioning 1 Reply

    A review of Beyond Freedom & Dignity by B.F.Skinner Noam Chomsky: The New York Review of Books,December 30, 1971 I A century ago, a voice of British liberalism described the "Chinaman" as "an inferior race of malleable orientals."1 During the same years, anthropology became professionalized as a discipline, "intimately associated with the rise of raciology."2 Presented with the claims of nineteenth-century racist anthropology, a rational person will ask two sorts of questions: What is the…Continue

    Happiness or Bliss

    What do we want ? Happiness or Bliss?On going thru my notes of a lecture at a local theosophical center the other day,I came across this topic, which is very common in all philosophies.The topic was Theosophy and K.Happiness is momentary , but bliss is permanent.Therefore we must be always aware of our state while living in the world in all the stages of life.Is it not true?Thus transformation is very important.Otherwise bliss is far away!Continue

    This is all too immense for thought 95 Replies

    For new readers, this is a continuation of the discussion thread about memory: Is there any part of us which is not memory? Paul: Why does thought have to be involved? You are not even questioning this. Involved in what? If it's just the shoddy little game of making oneself feel better, which we all seem to play, then thought is there, heading the field. But I might not be whom thought says I am, and you might not be whom you are, or think you are. Sir, this is all too immense for thought. We…Continue
