The Devils Playground

I was thinking about this very thing yesterday, that the events and happenings in the world take place in the devils playground, so to speak. Let me explain what I mean by this. Firstly, this devils playground is something that has been constructed, it's man made and we see it as reality. Further, those who make their living in the devils playground, which is everybody who engages in this, will call the devils playground reality. And let me emphasize that there is nothing in truth to compete… Continue

Letting it all go

To let it all go ...

the desire for intelligence, awakening ... the endless questioning and analysis ... the constant watching with a (sometimes very subtly) hidden goal of becoming better, of ending suffering, of "getting it" ... 

to be at home and lost in unhampered simple freewheeling being ...

"The observer is the observed"

When this statement is true to oneself entirely, one is free from conflict and therefore is free.

"Truth Is A Pathless Land." Does This comment Make Sense?

Some people including myself are saying that Krishnamurti made a focus toward ultimate truth which created an imbalance. So why call truth a land, and, if it is even possible to understand this comment at all, can we understand it instantly without thinking about it? (I think it is possible to intuitively understand, at least for a few moments, what he is trying to say, but that it is of minimal functional value in terms of actually transforming human relationship.) And what would…

Choice, Choosing and Confusion

Where there is clarity there is no choice. This, of course, is a statement that can be found in the teachings and it follows naturally that choiceless awareness is a central and pertinent feature, but hearing it, forming an idea about why clarity is without choice is not the same as seeing it for myself. The idea of choicelessness is not choicelessness and the description of it is also not clarity, the seeing of it. So if clarity indicates chiocelessness then choosing indicates non-clarity,… Continue

The narcissism epidemic

Are we in the midst of a narcissism epidemic?  Attention seeking behaviour, the need to stand out, an increased focus on image, fame and money seem to be on the rise. Researchers from the U.S. have found that young people’s average scores against the Narcissistic Personality Inventory are significantly higher than in previous generations. We explore the causes, symptoms and possible solutions to this growing trend of self obsession.

    IS FREEDOM FROM CONDITIONING REALLY POSSIBLE? A Talk delivered to the Krishnamurti Foundation of America By Prof. Hillary Rodrigues Ojai, California on August 28, 2010

    Just now read the article mentioned in the Title above and writing down the conditioned responses of my mind! (1)Unconditioning is possible through observation-'K' Says and I accept it as truth because I don`t see any reason for 'K' to lie!. May be 'K' can be mistaken but he lived a full life and had he found that freedom from conditioning is impossible he would have said that also!!It is difficult to believe that 'K' categorically made a statement and unchanged it throughout his life for the…Continue

    Everything dies 15 Replies

    Death ... it's as "natural" as the breath you're taking right now. There's nothing more natural for any existent than its eventual non-existence. Death is all around us. We are swimming in it. We *are* it.  So, dear friends ... what's the problem? Whence the fear of death, the darkness associated with it?Continue

    When thought is not there, it can be a blank mind, still man is there. Mind is there but no thought.In deep sleep a person is there.Mind is completely absorbed. Here who is the observer and what is observed? May we discuss? Or is it a question not worth discussing?After rising up I generally say, I had a good sleep, I did not observe or know anything, it was a state of great happiness .I know that .It is past now.J.K generally does not go into such discussion though, it is an important point to…Continue

    what is talking?

    Writing is a communication using thought. Most of the time it is in a form which reproduces the characteristics of this form, and this form is what is generating images and responses. It is these thoughts we are thinking about and arriving at an understanding; moving from one conclusion to the next. Is there a way to end this practice and not make it a conclusion? What happens when I read words? Am I looking at the words and mechanically reading, or is it a communion with insight? I can find…Continue

    Simplicity 11 Replies

    Life is very simple and being simple it is direct. What is direct, straight, is possible to touch what is true. We make life very complex, so complex and therefore we are afraid of life. When one goes through all that complexity, the game in which one deceives and is deceived, and comes out of it, without any more concern, bondage, or desire, what remains is directness of life. And love is possible.
