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.

For the last five weeks we have been discussing the importance of self-knowledge; for without knowing oneself, not partially, but fully, integrally, it is not possible to think rightly, and therefore act…Continue

i still have a million things to do but i was goddamn inspired, and the subject is AUTHORITY which is fascinating, in my church the pastor asked at the beginning of his sermon "Who here does not answer to Authority?" Nobody raised their hand, or stood, we all just sat there.
No argument. …

Has anyone resloved his/her loneliness as explained by Krishnamurti. I observe the feeling of loneliness, sorrow etc as he says but nothing happens. It doesn't end the suffering.Continue
Thought occupies the mind, right? I look outside and say it is raining. Driving along the road I am thinking about where I am going and what I will do. I hear/read a word and automatically it has a context and a meaning. Talking with people I am adding my opinion to the conversation. We can say this is the way thought is working.
On one hand thought is in operation, talking, writing, reading, thinking, etc., and I say I am aware of this. This operation is evident in the words, ideas, and…

about Emile Cioran:
Real joy lies in non-being, says Cioran, that is, in the conviction that each willful act of creation perpetuates cosmic chaos.

“All authority of any kind, especially in the field of thought and understanding, is the most destructive, evil thing. Leaders destroy the followers and followers destroy the leaders. You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary.” ... “Having realized that we can depend on no outside authority in bringing about a total revolution within the structure of our own psyche, there is the immensely greater…Continue

In discussion with Paul and Bruce, both have mentioned something which Krishnamurti also refers to. It is that the human mind and 'my' mind are the same thing. This refers to each mind having very similar capacity - for thought, feeling, emotion etc. I hypothesise that this is due to shared genetics. The brain has similar 'functionality' in every person in the same way that our lungs and liver do. This functionality is genetic conditioning. This is not that important to what follows.Seeing that…Continue

We are always using nature, either as an escape or for utilitarian ends - we never actually stop and love the earth or the things of the earth. We never enjoy the rich fields, though we utilize them to feed and clothe ourselves. We never like to till the earth with our hands - we are ashamed to work with our hands. There is an extraordinary thing that takes place when you work the earth with your hands. But this work is done only by the lower castes; we upper classes arc much too important…Continue
