For whom meditation happens?

Meditation happens- we all know. For whom it happens, we may discuss.That is , qualifications or fitness for whom it happens is also very important, so that there can be a self- examination for the same!

Impact of Thought over Matter

When K said 'Thought is matter', Bohm corrected him by saying 'Thought is a material process'. K agreed to it.

If thought is indeed a material process just as wave is a process of water, it ought to have some impact upon the world of objects, as a wave has upon the sea-side sands. Human body is the nearest object upon which thought might imprint its signature. So, we might conclude here that thought is born out of human brain and has its immediate impact upon the human…

One 'I' is the Illusion

Our brain has been conditioned to believe that only one 'I' operates within a human entity from birth till death. Is that not the basic illusion? The reality is that every thought contains a specific, unique 'I' in its core, which is different from every other 'I' contained in any other thought. If a thought of taking revenge upon somebody rises in one's brain, it contains a particular 'I' in its core. Suppose the very next moment another thought of feeling pity towards a dying man rises. It… Continue

There cannot be a duality in love.

Love cannot be divided into the lover and the beloved. Duality cannot coexist  in love.

    Different thinking doesn't mean intelligence. 21 Replies

    Whether it is ancient scriptures, traditional mythology, western universalism, none of this is actual living.  If you are seriously inquiring into the possibility the way of the known is not actually living, why oh why,  do you, Eastern or Western,  continue to use those methods of thinking?"Westerners pay attention to the focal object, while Asians attend more broadly -- to the overall surroundings and to the relations between the object and the field.""Westerners prefer abstract universal…Continue

    Thought vs Observation 1523 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

    The Fall 106 Replies

    Recently in chat, Eric wrote of hubris and conceit as, to my understanding, his impression of much of the writing on this site.  Consider if you will whether this is an accurate impression.  What does this mean for you personally as well as for discussions on this site?Hubris:  “a great or foolish amount of pride or confidence”  (Webster)Conceit:  “too much pride in your own worth or goodness”  (Webster)Continue

    'in light of the new' 51 Replies

    Talking about the new is very difficult. Mostly people use their cerebral faculties to interpret what is said. The word new is immediately put into a verbal context and the thoughts are comparative, repeating the known.Just thinking this way in a verbal context, there is a process of taking any word and developing thoughts about it. This is an action taking time and this action has its own, separate, characteristics, and in themselves may be interesting. Yet, repeating the known is a use of…Continue

    Am I the Core of Every Thought? 20 Replies

    K has stated that I (self) am the content of my consciousness. But, the content comes to the fore as one thought at a time. If we observe closely we shall find that at the core of every such thought there lies 'I' or 'me' or 'my' or 'mine'. Watching thought means seeing this core. Emptying the consciousness of its content may take place through this watching of the core of every thought, which is 'me'.Continue

    Relationship is the only thing..K-D.Q. Key to Transformation 3 Replies

    Relationship is the only thing that we have and without understanding that relationship we can never find out what reality is or God is.So to bring about a complete change in the social structure in the society the individual must cleanse his relationship and the cleansing his(her) relationship is the beginning of his own transformation. D. Q. Of K. (Book- Social Responsibility)Thus if we are concerned at all with transformation then understanding ourselves in our relationships in the society…Continue
