An ‘unconditioned mind’ is a myth or a reality?

 

Let’s us approach the above statement from a personal perspective!

 

I am interested in Cricket.  I am an Indian by birth.  When India and Australia play a match of one day international, there is a deep urge that India win!  When one observes the source of this urge, one realizes that this urge has come because of ‘conditioning’ of being an Indian.  Since I am interested in Sports, I also see Tennis.  When two top…

Think right, why not?

What is the wrong way of thinking?

thought is limited

Thought gives up certain pleasures or habits to gain others  but thought is insufficient and limited therefore incapable of seeing the whole . Knowing that fact what is one to do? Thought must function efficiently when it is  necessary but it doesn't , why? Because thought is duality , comparison  and thought gets caught in it's own duality net...

K's teachings has a negative effect on some.

I think that K's teaching had a negative effect on some people,It  had made  them more self-centered and conning which is the cause of stupidity and mischief .

Can Thought Transcend Itself?

After undergoing "the process", Krishnamurti became convinced that his brain had been transformed, enabling him to have the supernatural ability to see things "as they are" rather than as his conditioning made things appear. He felt that the process exploded his mind out of the inherent limitation of thought and brought about a kind of intelligence that was immeasurable and infallible, beyond description, explanation, and beyond…

I can only end what I know, what I don't know I can't end.

What does this statement indicate. What do you think it is getting at, probing into? It seems obvious that I can't end what I don't even know, but is there an unknown known? Well, if there is a subconscious or unconscious, then that, it seems to me, would be an unknown known. So if I want to end thought so that there can be a renewal, an innocence, newness, then there must not be anything left that is unexplored or that remains unknown, because I can't end what I don't even know exists. That… Continue

Cantos

Canto the First:

These words will collect around a singular point, which, if they collect as I intend them to collect, will outline that singular point sufficiently to allow that point to be made. As I see it, I am going to attempt the capture of something in a net of words that will allow that something to be seen as that which is struggling to escape this very net of words. I suspect that what I am trying to say here is that I see something that I can only dance around, and that I…

    Thought vs Observation 459 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 Observer 2 Replies

    The quintessential Krishnamurti quote is, "The observer is the observed". But if you ask six different Krishnamurti students what that means, you'll get six different answers. What he meant by that statement is a matter of interpretation.Krishnamurti taught that there is no observation if there's an observer because the observer is just conditioned response, and for there to be true and accurate observation, there can be no shadow of the past or of "me". This sounds plausible until you look a…Continue

    When Thought Gives Up 11 Replies

    According to Krishnamurti, transformation begins when thought gives up on itself, but does it? Most minds have given up on thought because they've never learned to think. Most minds just repeat what they've been told, and hold to what they believe. Few minds have discovered the limits of thought and learned to work within those limits without seeking escape.Those few brains are engaged in real inquiry and observation, and they're learning much about the mind and cognition. Only believing minds…Continue

    You Are Thought 42 Replies

    Krishnamurti taught that you are thought; that there is no person, self, entity or identity apart from thought that is thinking. He made it clear that there is no thinker - there is only thought. So when you realize that you are this cognitive process that operates according to memory, you realize how limited and fallible you are, and naturally, you want to get beyond what you are, to transcend what you are, because it is so limited and flawed.But this is where thought makes its biggest…Continue

    Transformation 12 Replies

    Krishnamurti had no doubt that his brain had undergone a "radical transformation" wherein a "mutation of the brain cells" occurred, and his followers are as doubtless as he was about it. But when one goes beyond wishful thinking to give serious, rigorous thought to whether this really happened or if it is even possible, there is no truth to cling to or identify with. There is only the question of whether the process of thought can be transformed into something that is both inexplicable and…Continue
