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

Another Way To Put It: Can LOVE Be Naive? (Previous: Response To Dave: Was K Naive? ;MEMORY, Kavanaugh Hearing (as relates to better understanding K) Reincarnation Part 2)

Someone wrote and said they are discussing this particular talk here.  so I am going to put in my two cents.

The Observer is the Observed

Madras, India. Group Discussion 27th November, 1947

".....The observer and the observed are the same; therefore, the observer is making a false statement when it says "I am looking at the stream and going back to the past". We now see the absurdity of the whole process - the observer, though the same as the observed,…

Dialogue

I really believe if Krishnamurti's philosophy were to extend somehow or another into the dialogue of every other religion's doctrine, that these religions would "defragment" their thinking also, not to the point of shaking their fundamental beliefs on which they are based, but to the point of bringing about a "defragmented" understanding of themselves and a renewed perspective about humanity, to the degree that this would create more religious tolerance and understanding in the…

KFA People

I think a lot of the communities around Ojai do not get to see and experience first hand the quality of human being that is found daily living, working and visiting the Krishnamurti Foundation of America. 

It usually happens when I arrive there that I feel either as if have been engulfed by this great emotion of the universe that somehow or another is breathing in and out there or as if I have walked into some kind of an emotional force field of some kind, and I have no choice but to…

All Thought is Limited

I think, this insight, that all thought is limited, the realization of this fact, is fundamental for meditation to take place. I can think whatever I desire about meditation, truth, virtue, the religious mind, existence or anything else, but without realizing, "seeing," that every movement of thought, thinking, is limited, I would say that real meditation is not possible. This  means that not only is the thought limited, but also the thinker is limited. Further, this means the the thinker,…

Thanks to those here who have encouraged me to put some of this chat material into blog form. I am sorry I did not do so sooner. The reason I did not do so was because of laziness.

Oak Grove School Tour

I visited the Oak Grove School yesterday for the first time. 

I was immediately impressed by its location because I didn't know where it was which is what surprised me. I had seen it on Instagram posts but didn't really know exactly where it was and what it looked like in person. It was really pleasing to walk around the campus. I would like it even more actually to take a tour while school is in progress so I can see the education there in action. 

I was invited to take a tour…

You cannot follow Krishnamurti, because there is no Krishnamurti.

I came across this post.  If this is a duplication, it seems well worth multiple looks.

"I have insisted over and over again that you cannot accept what I say. You cannot follow Krishnamurti, because there is no Krishnamurti. Do you not see that you are setting up another standard? I wish you could see the vital importance of this - that to follow is the utter denial…

    Non-accumulative learning and self knowledge 98 Replies

    Krishnamurti uses these terms.  What is self knowledge in relation to the above? Knowledge implies accumulated data.Is this a paradox or does it just point to the limitations of thought as a vehicle for understanding the self?Is awareness related to thought? Does one have to think about something in order to be aware? Is awareness a faculty of the senses? Or is it something that allows the senses to operate? Is awareness prior to thought? What is it that one can be aware of?  Is it necessary to…Continue

    What does it mean to drop the past. "Take 2" 98 Replies

    In the other discussion titled the same as this, there seems to be a problem with being able to respond to other peoples posts. I initially assumed it was closed on purpose, but feel that maybe it is a technical hitch.Sio Paul opened the title, which was an offshoot to another discussion. My how things can evolve.I am the past. That's all I am; that's the entirety of me. Can I be quiet about it and let it fade away? Then there is something that is not touched by the past, something that is not…Continue

    Personality Disorder is Hard2Diagnose 8 Replies

    Personality is the organization within the individual of the neurobiological processes by which we adapt to experience. Personality as temperament involves individual differences in genetic traits influenced by the salience of stimuli which we either select or are exposed to. Temperament is superseded by a model-of-self that is defined by temperament as well as character. The organization-of-self is described by three character dimensions, corresponding to administration of daily Life, factors…Continue

    What does it mean to drop the past? 172 Replies

    I am the past. That's all I am; that's the entirety of me. Can I be quiet about it and let it fade away? Then there is something that is not touched by the past, something that is not me. It is not awareness; it is not the present; it has no name, no identity. That can meet anything. The difficulty is that we don't just drop the past; we are always seeking something to replace it. Si: Drop the past, how? May we just keep the question going? I think there is a little confusion in the way of the…Continue
