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.

Nationalist Divisions, are producing a more life threatening chaos globally than the Covid pandemic. A World vision report states that three billion of us human beings are going to bed at night without enough food because of the inflation in food prices and vile sanctions that harm generally only the poorest the most, in sanctioned nations. Mile Pompeo the last insane Secretary of State factually stated that he was using United States sanctions unilaterally and in trade wars to produce…Continue
If you ask a question from a good professor about his topic he becomes glad and clarifies it further but if he is a superficial professor and doesn't know his material deeply he becomes disoriented and defying.
Thought to share that observation..
How do we end fear?: We are discussing something which needs your attention, not your agreement or disagreement. We are looking at life most rigorously, objectively, clearly- not according to your sentiment, your fancy, what you like or don't like. It's what we like and don't like that has created this misery. All that we are saying is this: "How do we end fear?" That's one of our great problems, because if a human being can't end it he lives in darkness everlastingly, not everlastingly in…Continue
I don’t suppose people understand the word communal anymore. They would start from their understanding of self, and this is already not communal. The word would be associated with communism, but here communal means sharing where there are no isms, and self does not arise.
The point is, it’s not about thinking, speculating, asking for explanations, it is to realise for oneself, attentively, the whole liveliness, the natural, effortless, energy of living. Stuck in a word, a…Continue

Living in the society ,if one is in the Atyashrami that is,the Fourth,(Transformed?) state then only he or she is in Bliss.Atyashrami was the highest ashram (state) when people in olden days were living only in meditation.He was not at all involved in routine household works and responsibilities.Thus understanding one can be in this state now also even if he or she is living in the present world.The Atyashrami lives in a state (ashram) who is quite aloof (so to…Continue

Text aus einem Youtube Video (habe ich schon mal gepostet) mit dem Titel "Zorn".ZORNEs gibt Tage, an denen ich die Schönheit nicht mehr sehen kann,an dem der Mensch und seine widerlichen Spielarten mir ins Auge stechen,wie Hornissen mit brennenden Stacheln.Ich trete auf die Strasse und sehe überall nur Dummköpfe.Primitivste Wesen mit primitivsten Bedürfnissenund dem geistigen Horizont von Kaugummis,gefangen in winzigen Wohnbüchsen,beschäftigt mit sinnlosen Tätigleiten,festgeklebt an flimmernden…Continue

Was sind wir? Was sind wir - abgesehen vom Namen, von der Form, vielleicht vom Bankkonto (wenn Sie Glück haben), vielleicht von einer Fähigkeit, abgesehen davon, was sind wir? Leiden wir nicht? Oder gibt es kein Leid in Ihrem Leben? Gibt es Angst? Gibt es Sorgen, Habgier, Neid? Beten wir eine Vorstellung an, die der Verstand erschaffen hat? Klammern wir uns an ein Konzept, weil wir uns vor dem Tod fürchten? Leben wir nicht im Widerspruch, indem wir das eine sagen und das andere tun? Das alles…Continue

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

There is the interest in the writings of K, and we come here to talk together as friends. It is not he or she says such and such, and I respond, reworking what I just read. It is looking carefully, clearly, at the basic essence of what we are communicating together. This looking is not a review, not an examination of what was presented just now in words, not what I know, not an issue, it is a choice-less reflection of the communing together. It is choice-less because there is a free flow of…Continue
