Krishnamurti on Gurdjieff

Question: I have been a member of a Gurdjieff group. I find it has given me a background to better understanding of what you are saying. Should I continue with such a group in order possibly to help others, as I was helped? Or does a group make for fragmentation?

K: "This is an extraordinary idea, this idea…

A False Freedom for a False "I" in Conflict with a False Environment

Why are the freedom, the "I" and the environment all false?

CHOICE AND CHOICE-LESS.

CHOICE.



When one decide to act, there is a CHOICE.



There is three types of of actions. When one decides to act bodily, such as to walk, he can 'CHOOSE' one of the different roads or paths.



When one wants to speak, he can 'CHOOSE' one of the many topics or remain silent.



One can 'CHOOSE' to 'think' on many of the different subject.



CHOICE-LESS.



When one is in a mental state, there is no choice, it is CHOICE-LESS.



There are many…

To be free from violence.

 "To be free from violence, which is not the cultivation of non-violence, there must be the understanding of desire. "

FREEDOM,PEACE AND SMILE

Some things are very clear. Though is dual. Duality of thought. It divides itself into two and fight and the pressure of fight affects the body. When it crosses certain limit ,the body rejects it and the pressure also disappears. So far ok.

(1)Why the thought divide itself into two? We don’t know. That is the way it should have been conditioned and as nobody is able to change it ,the same characteristic  continues from millennia.

(2) The pain and pleasure both will be rejected…

Perhaps worth to think about

Yesterday morning it was dark night, misty and cold outside.

I was driving my car.

The window was fogging and freezing.

I found myself wiping the window.

While wiping the window I asked myself.

Why do I wipe the window?

Is it, because I can't see anything?

Is my wiping part of my searching for the course of the road ahead?

Is it, because I want to be assure not to oversight an obstacle?

Is it, because my…

Behind "The observer is the observed" principle.

When the mind sees the truth in this fact that the observer is the observed, the mind then operates around that main principle, which implies observation is a unitary phenomenon. From that observation which is unitary, perception comes also as a unitary whole. The right means comes to the right end. So when there is perception, it is the thing per se, not a secondary effect by a cause.

    the one who is looking at the sunset 9 Replies

    although JK has explained my Life to me, it should be equally true for everyone who reads his books and watches his talks, and it clearly is not, and i think the trouble is that he was too steeped in the Vedas or something, he makes it clear that meditation is the answer but he doesn't make it clear that only the art of Listening will set us free so  after a long contemplation on our network and how it worries hell out of me, it seems at the core of the concern is that when someone reads "The…Continue

    Thought vs Observation 284 Replies

    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

    What is conscience? 89 Replies

    Krishnamurti states that conscience is formed by conditioning and is part of the known.  That does not seem complete.  It seems to apply to social mores.Conscience appears to distinguish people who are truly human from those who are not.  And, conscience and empathy appear to be closely related.  The psychopath has neither conscience nor empathy.  They see themselves as superior to those who do.  Other people are simply pawns to do their bidding.  Yet, on the surface or in superficial…Continue

    Interaction with people who heard K firsthand 10 Replies

    I would like to explore the question how did you understand K's teaching? How has your life, your mind your relationship with yourself, others, your work and so on evolved because of your awareness and hearing, understanding him? I would like to hear from people who attended one or more of his talks.

    We need social change... So what is one to do? 289 Replies

    We need social change, a complete revolution in our relationship between man and man, which has bred this monstrous society. There is violence in our heart, in our relationship. Each person is concerned about himself and not about another. And action invariably breeds conflict; all our life, whatever we are doing, only brings confusion, misery, conflict. Again this is a fact. Whether that action is a conscious action or an unconscious action, it breeds conflict in all our being - whatever we…Continue

    CHOICE-LESS-AWARENESS. 1 Reply

    After reading, listening Krishnamurti, many try to be in CHOICE-LESS-AWARENESS. It is the normal healthy state of mind, which Krishnamurti did not have.So how can a normal healthy person having CHOICE-LESS-AWARENESS, wish to have it, while having it?Go to a public park to find people having CHOICE-LESS-AWARENESS.Go to an hospital to find people NOT having CHOICE-LESS-AWARENESS.Continue

    Sharing and not losing. 4 Replies

    Words are not a connection. They are verbal symbols, images. Yet I try to connect the words in talking, writing, thinking, to make sense. Looking at any one word, any one idea, is often a mistake. The words are set in expressions, idiomatically, and on their own make no sense of the whole expression. Maybe I, you, don't share any understanding. It is a fragmentation. Is this fragmentation what the mind is striving to make all connected? Of course there are connections to be found, but is the…Continue

    What is 'Ending Time' as referred to by K ,definitely he is not refering to chronological time but Psychological ! 24 Replies

    When k dissolved the organization that brought him to the world attention he stated ,''I want to set man unconditionally free''.In the early stages of his teachings his theme was mostly on ,thought and how it sets up the centre commonly referred to as the centre or the psychological entity that governed mankind.As this notion was developed towards the end it flowered into deeper meaning of thought where it was revealed that thought is time in its fragmentation.Now it is possible to say…Continue

    Daily Quote - Deny it with enchantment 10 Replies

    "Please do listen. What I am going to say will probably be rather difficult. So, listen as though you are far away. I am going to talk about something which you will come to, if you have gone through all this sweetly, with pleasure. When you have gone through the whole process of action born of reaction, and denied it with enchantment, with joy -not with pain- then you will see that you will come naturally, easily, to a state of mind that is the very essence of beauty."Love this quote, had been…Continue
