Krishnamurti Quote

Goodness shows itself in behaviour and action and in relationship. Generally our daily behaviour is based on either the following of certain patterns – mechanical and therefore superficial – or according to very carefully thought-out motive, based on reward or punishment. So our behaviour, consciously or unconsciously, is calculated. This is not good behaviour. When one realizes this, not merely intellectually or by putting words together, then good behaviour comes out of negating what it is not.

The Whole Movement of Life is Learning, chapter 2: Freedom is essential for the beauty of goodness

Nationalist bullying is behind this decaying of sanity, and the cause of our the dilemma. A dilemma we all must face, in the me first mirror of our overheating planet, and dying world.

Bullying is a sadistic brutal disease affecting children, destroying their own minds, if unchecked, if self rationalized, if self justified. Bullying is a continuing, of unhealthy mental sadism, like the disease of cancer. This activity continues the decay , in the human brain as adults. Those who are still mentally acting like raging mad, bullying children, just like Donald Trump and his insane bullying friends in the tee party, are sadistic mental failures in Washington. Trumpism is a…

NOTHING

"You are nothing. You may have your name and title, your property and bank account, you may have power and be famous; but in spite of all these safeguards, you are as nothing. You may be totally unaware of this emptiness, this nothingness, or you may simply not want to be aware of it; but it is there, do what you will to avoid it. You may try to escape from it in devious ways, through personal or collective…

'Why have I an opinion about something?' - you follow sir? It is a marvellous movement of releasing energy. I don't know if you see the point. A conclusion prevents the flow of energy - get that point sir, get that point. I am just looking at it for myself, I am getting excited about…

The Blog You Always Wanted

Word is not the thing.

We are trapped in a prison of our own creation. It's walls are the thoughts that are always thinking about itself; it's own imagined center with it's own importance and it's own petty little concern. This is the trap of conditioning, the trap of society and of respectability. And it says, "be respectable," but of course we are not, because conditioning is caused by the trap of…

On meditation

If one wants peace then one must be in meditation.is this statement correct or is it ambiguous?

Other states of man are productive of turmoils only!

Thought is Prior to the Brain

That's right.

How about a universal self chat application - monologue

How about a chat application that

    - No usernames shown. But many users can participate.

    - No mentioning of other people names, Always talking to self. 

In enquiry towards truth.

Is it dangerous?

    Finding out for yourself. 30 Replies

    There is to the brain, implied, expected, a verbal solution to our thinking. For what someone says, we look for an understanding that fits with our understanding. We like it when there is a comprehensible story. Yet you may have had to do something with the computer , or the internet, and been given a lot of jargon, and complex instructions. There are no necessarily apparent connections in the text given, but pointers to various technical, and remote, steps. So you have to follow the…Continue

    This 38 Replies

    This.For some time now I have been using the word ‘this’ or ‘this is’ to express what I see as the distillation of ‘the teachings’. The problem is that this is usually interpreted by others to mean an idea or philosophy. We are used to ‘this’ having an attached object - this fear, this psychological thought, this violence, this self, this idea etc. ‘This’, on its own, is not particularised. It means the same as ‘what is’. So why don’t I just say ‘what is’? I actually often do, but there is a…Continue

    Competition is not good at all for  understanding of self.Hence competion,comparison etc have been totally denied by K.Yes,it is not going to add anything a good at all in our understanding of oneself.And without understanding we can not change our ways of living and this is very much detrimental to us.Also we must not think in terms of some sort of group formation .,because any group is always isolating.we must be open for all for discussion which can be helpful for the transformation of…Continue

    Ask yourself. 13 Replies

    Ask yourself. Am I quietly observing or am I working from thought? Of course the writer, the thinker, cannot understand this. They are content to be using thought, and any suggestion of not using thought, is put as a separate exercise with episodes of thought and non-thought. They don’t understand fundamentally they are conditioned, motivated by thought, and the outcome is thought. The field of thought is the basis of our industrial, technological, lives. Activities such as writing, talking,…Continue

    Where does it start? 10 Replies

    Where does it start? Did you read a book or watch a video? But still, where does it start really? Is it some disorder in our lives, some upset, some confusion, and we are looking for answers? Or is it a concern for the terrible state of the World, and the future of mankind?  I am concerned. We tend to think there is some benefit in talking about it all. But we are a part of the disorder and terrible state of the World.  We are led to think changing the content of what we are thinking, modifying…Continue

    Maybe we need to talk about the basics? 42 Replies

    Maybe we need to talk about the basics?Mostly we aren’t very aware. There are sensations we know about, hunger for example. But in the daily routine what happens is I ask myself, is it Lunch time? Or I might start thinking about what to eat. I get an idea about eating a meal, and this relates to feeding myself, but mainly it is a routine.   I am working with the idea, and what this proposes. I might assume I understand hunger, for example, but actually it is a part of a program of desire which…Continue
