Freedom

""Now let us ask ourselves a further question. Is this freedom, this solitude, this coming into contact with the whole structure of what we are in ourselves -is it to be come upon through time? That is, is freedom to be achieved through a gradual process? Obviously not, because as soon as you introduce time, you are enslaving yourself more and more. You cannot become free gradually. It is not a matter of time.

Participant37: Now, my question is this: You have so many times repeated for 70 years that you do not convince anybody of anything, you are not a teacher, you do not teach anything to anybody. Now I say that the centres of the KFI - whose president you are - they invite the public, `Come here, here are the teachings of Krishnamurti;…

Observing works.

Through the ages the brain has learnt to handle the many factors of the plants, animals, materials, water, electricity, machines etc. Through this process, encountering the factors, discovering how things work, man knows how to do things.

It might not occur to us that what we have learnt is how things work, and instead think we have an immediate skill and ability operating things, as with some innate gift. This assumption, this belief, of an innate gift, we assume is true, and is the…

Man is a Symbolizing Creature

This is a fact, "Man is a Symbolizing Creature."  Now, there are two ways to appreciate this simple statement.  One way is to say that man uses symbols to communicate and to do almost everything that he does. This is the common view, I would say.  In other words the common man interprets the statement to align it with his belief, knowledge and experience. "I use symbols," so that there is a division between me and the symbols, my ideas, beliefs, knowledge, etc.  The other way to view this…

    Why inquiry? 264 Replies

    Why do we inquire?Is it because there is a basic sense that 'me and my reality' are somehow unsatisfactory as they are?If so, with what are we comparing? Why compare what is with what could, or 'should', be?Is there a desire for change? If so, this implies time. Are we imagining some future state and attempting to bring it into being? Does this process take place entirely within the realm of abstract thought?If there is desire, time and thought involved, is what we call 'inquiry' actually a…Continue

    The Past, the Present and the Future is Now 41 Replies

    "We were talking about time:  time as the past, if I may briefly repeat, time as the past, time as the future, time now, at this second. We were saying also that all time,  the past, the present and the future is contained in the now. We went into it fairly thoroughly, that the future is the present, because what we are now, our behaviour, our vulgarity, our - what? - our cruelty, bestiality, terror, and all the rest of it, what we are now, violent, tomorrow will also be violent if there is no…Continue

    Thought vs Observation 1559 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 serious mind. 14 Replies

    Do you notice, after a while, in one way or another, the posters retreat into their own private conversations? It is very difficult to work with this individualism, this authority of self, and rather than openly talk together, the poster sticks to trying to explain some point of view, some theory.    Sticking to their guns, they find quotes which seem relevant to their own attitude. It may be a valid point of view, according to the individual,  even with all the backing of some expert…Continue
