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

This silence leads to meditation

In Silence there is no world.This silence only leads to meditation that is real.

How much longer can our planet sustain, even maintain its health?

Is there such a thing as the right ideological tool invented by thought to end global plunder and warfare, or produce global peace, and unite great numbers of wise human beings? Can anyone hear the call of silence and come together, and help save our  planet from environmental destruction by the most egregiously greedy and wealthy on earth? And educate the stupid that  want to be wealthy like them without seeing the insanity of runaway rampant lust, and greed for power, and the immoral…

Any little most trace of the world is a bar for meditation.

  1. If one is in meditation then there is no trace of the world of any kind at all.If  any  trace is then there is disturbance to meditation.Thus realising one can think of meditation.
  2. First the field must be suitable.
  3. Any kind of expectation must not be.
  4. No motive must be there.
  5. One must be totally free.Then probably meditation can be possible for man.

Discerning Knowledge

There is no point in reading krishnamurti if one cannot discern the difference between psychological and physical or technical knowledge.

Krishnamurti and Buddhism

This blog is intended to cover many angles regarding Buddhism and how these teachings have perhaps affected Krishnamurti and also other teachers such as Gurdjieff and even some religions in that there is a trend and tendency, for example, for many Catholics to incorporate certain elements of Buddhism, primarily Zen, into their particular approach. I may also post this on Niko's blog, Deconstructing Krishnamurti, so if you post anything here it is giving explicit permission for it to be…

Carpet Weaving 201: Sayings, epiphany, queries, analysis, disputation and definitions.....

So, related to my previous and ongoing blog, Renunciation -- a question: Do all roads lead to Rome? This said, or, perhaps better put, asked, at one  point in time, all roads in a particular place called "Rome" actually did lead there.

Thought (previously Renunciation)

This should be quite helpful:

Meditation without effort.

  Once thought becomes aware of it's own movement in the psyche, once thought becomes aware of what it does then thought becomes quiet without any effort. That is meditation.

    An Inquiry into Meditation 57 Replies

    I have no plan or intention to say or tell others what meditation is, but this is for us to discuss, perhaps discover what is true meditation. I don't think there are many different types of meditation, though there may be. I do think there are many ways to hypnotize myself, believe in something or other and I'm pretty sure others participate in self hypnotizing. However, when one realizes that these many kinds of belief, knowledge, experience, cannot not be true meditation, then I think an…Continue

    How do we stay totally aware and compassionate in moments of great distress? 2 Replies

    Elections in the US are coming up and for many this is a stressful time, particularly for vulnerable populations. Especially now many feel that their entire future is riding on this one election given the devastation COVID has wrought.We can see that hatred of any sort is a form of destruction, we can see that categorization of any kind is a form of destruction, misery and destitution have their origin in discriminatory thought. During a period of great distress how can we maintain our clarity…Continue

    Is Love a thing of the Mind? 53 Replies

    A Thing Of The Mind: What we call our love is a thing of the mind. Look at yourselves, Sirs, and Ladies, and you will see that what I am saying is obviously true; otherwise, our lives, our marriage, our relationships, would be entirely different, we would have a new society. We bind ourselves to another, not through fusion, but through contract, which is called love,…Continue

    Hearing the words for the very first time. 4 Replies

    Like any religious speaker, K is talking about the eternal. He is not advising a method, nor the eternal as a concept, or a goal, but as the nature of truly living, free from a self center. However the tendency is to study what he says as part of a philosophic exercise, to examine the concepts, and make comparative analysis. The participants do not see the urgency, the immediacy, of truly living, and relentlessly debate within an ethos of their own making.Dialogue or speaking together, is…Continue

    Carefully talking together 16 Replies

    Carefully talking together, or dialogue, about something common to us all, is not about personal experiences, personal ability, or personal judgement. It is sharing of a human psychology, not limited to individual perceptions of daily life.The tendency is to think it is a conversation, a discussion, relying on knowledge, and day to day verbal meanings, or social topics, and that it is a verbal exchange between people. This verbal approach is stuck in opinion, ideas, theories, and beliefs, and…Continue

    The unchanging life. 3 Replies

    Doesn’t seem to make any difference. No matter what is said I am stuck in the words. Let me tell a story. Seriously meditating, there is an awareness of the air, the atmosphere around us. It can be felt on the skin, touching and moving around. Noticeably the air is felt at the tip of the nostrils as you breathe. This is not an exercise. It is watching and feeling. The air has a presence, and is moving and it is flowing into the body, into the lungs. I am not actively breathing. The air enters…Continue
