Problem is not solved,

Desire for peace is root cause of search and therefore, man thinks and so many types of thoughts come , alas, the problem is not solved, one is messed up in theories and philosophies a nd therefore takes the help of K or other philosophies , alas, root cause of sorrow remains, continuous confusions arise and problems are not solved!inquiry continues incessantly.

Merge Onto The Freeway

So there is the body, there is thought and there is everything.  Thought is part of everything, but when it tries to divide itself from everything there is conflict and contradiction. Is everything enough?  Apparently, everything it is not enough. There is desire.  Apparently, there is a need for something, perhaps in the form of an answer, a conclusion, a belief, some knowledge or theory etc.  Desire wants to put something out there beyond everything, which is not divisive, and I see that…

If there is "ME",  "SELF", "CONTENT OF CONSCIOUSNESS", in the  mind, psychologically,   " OBSERVER" exist inevitably .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           In the emptiness  mind, in the nothingness, there is no "ME", "SELF", "CONTENT…

Collapsing psychological time

Normally when I "practice" collapsing psychological time I focus on letting go of memories and projections from the macro past and future: childhood, last year, tomorrow, next week, that kind of thing.

But I recently began experimenting with letting go of the micro memories/projections also: what happened 5 seconds ago, what might happen 2 seconds from now.

Eventually, if I stick with it, I reach a kind of timeless state in which everything's always "new" (not quite the right…

Why must one brood over miseries

To brood over miseries and sorrow is not at all good.because
Na twam naaham naayam lokah
Yourself, myself do not exist , neither this world does exist in reality.

Tadapi kimartham kriyate sokah
Meaning: therefore why at all should man cry?
Sri Sankara,exponent of Awaita Vedanta Philosophy in 8th century A.D.

    Why There Is No End to Sorrow and Misery 70 Replies

    So long as there is the belief that there is a separate individual -- a self -- there cannot be an end to sorrow and misery.The individual, the "self," is a psychological structure created by the brain. That is what it is, and that is all that it is. It has no reality beyond being a creation by the physical brain.When the brain stops creating this imaginary individual, when there is no individual, no self, to feel sorrow and misery, then sorrow and misery come to an end.(We speak naturally and…Continue

    No guessing! 22 Replies

    If we are inquiring, we are interested in the nature of existence, not just the existence of ourselves and the human condition but the entire perceived universe - existence itself. This can be summarised in the question 'What is This?', which is an all-encompassing 'This'.So, here's a new game to play. It is called 'What is This?'Sounds like a nice juicy game that we can really get into, right? However, let me first stipulate some rules for the game....No GuessingNo HypothesisingNo TheorisingNo…Continue

    Esse est percipi! 129 Replies

    My first acquaintance with Krishnamurti's work was in 1959 when I read his book The First and Last Freedom.What particularly aroused my interest was his deep insight into the question of the observer and the observed.This question has long been close to the centre of my own work as a theoretical physicist who was primarily interested in the meaning of the quantum theory.In this theory ,for the first time in the development of physics,the notion that the observer and the observed cannot be…Continue

    Thought vs Observation 1828 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

    A Few Words on Seriousness 24 Replies

    What does it mean, to be serious? It means to put aside personal preference, bias and belief in considering a subject.The self (thinker; ego; psychological "I") is not serious about anything, and cannot be made to be serious. The self is forever fearful of losing or of not becoming, and so it clings to personal preference, bias and belief.There is no seriousness in thinking and thought. There is seriousness only with sensing, observation and awareness. These occur before the formation of…Continue

    Science can not study Life fully 5 Replies

    Science studies matter, it can't study rightly its interaction with spirit which is Atman in other words i.e the term used in hindu or Vedanta philosophy or Theosophy.Interacion of matter and spirit is Life.Thus science is unable to study Life and its principles generally.
