One can be happy if one knows the true nature of expriences.

Based upon circumstances, phenomena, relationships,, time and place, psychological conditions, beliefs, ideas, ideals one acts and / reacts which lead to experinces.They are infinite.One must be aware of these experiences which are infinitely varied.Knowing this one cant depend upon a particular experience which are apt to vary in time.Thus knowing if one moves in the world one can be free and happy!

Fun post ,this note is not for you.

Psychological centres in the place to ''connect with others interested in k's message'',are they here to centrifuge further or to communicate and seek to understand the common denominator?

Things dont turn out as desired or taught as it should be from one personal crisis to the next in a never-ending seeking for the ultimate.In the macro same politically ,economically it is a never-ending rearranging of priorities with the individual position not considered at all.Particularly or…

Thought's Center

Thought has a tendency to dominate functions of mind and body from which it engenders a 'Center', (the product of its own workings) as the intertwining creator of itself. The propensity to separate the center from the periphery distorts thought and garbles the whole psyche. Going deeper, what is the source of belief, the acceptance of something as a fact or truth, without evidence of what actually is. Is the source of belief the willingness to blindly accept? It seems that belief arises from…

Life is a field of sports.

Life is a field of sports. One can take part in the sports as a sportsman only.Also he or she can enjoy the sports as a spectator even!Thus only happiness is the result. Nonpartisan witnessing is also a great phenomena in life!

One can come nearer truth

That which vanishes or is liable to vanish sooner or later is false.That which does not have such properties is Truth.
Thus knowing false and truth one goes nearer truth.To meet truth is thus possible.

Thoughts must be examined

'Thought on ' or ' thought about' 'thought from' , these are appendages or sources or causes of thought.These appendages , causes or sources must be examined , then only there is a possibility of one's higher progress.
Am i benefiting from such thoughts, if not then why should I harbor such thoughts? These are fundamental questions regarding thoughts.

The root of desire is thought.

The root of desire is thought. Not to say thought is wrong, bad or evil. Carefully, attentively, mindfully watching myself, it is not a desire I am experiencing, or a desire I encounter, presented by another person, or thing. It is thought prompted by the externalities to create the thinking, from memory, from the connections I have made in the mind through acculturation, education, and life in society. I am then thinking about this externality for what it offers…

Inward Revolution and Cultural Change

The inward revolution of millions is bringing about cultural change as evidenced by one of the world's richest men taking an unprecedented political lead for president.  He's the independent loose cannon with bravado enough to suggest this country could oust 11 million undocumented aliens and their American born children.  His hallmark would be to support mandatory sterilization, especially for those who deliver drug exposed babies or those who neglect their children.  Eventually, the inward…

    How are we related to life? 416 Replies

    Life is so rich in so many aspects. It is like an endless treasure. But what is our daily life? Is it tied down to the few monotonous routines? Continue

    Thought vs Observation 952 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

    Ending the ego 136 Replies

    Is there life after the self?  If I understand K at all, real life only begins after the self is gone.  The life I currently live doesn't seem to me to be worth living, so why can't I make the required turn?  All I need to do is to say 'No' to the continuation of what I'm living now.Continue

    Conditions 13 Replies

    It is an absolute perfection, and as it were divine, for a man to know how to enjoy his being loyally. We seek for other conditions because we understand not the use of ours; and go out of ourselves, not knowing what is abiding there.Michel de Montaigne, Essays What are the conditions de Montaigne seems to say are ignored in favor of a search for other conditions?Continue

    Relationship is life and life is relationship 1 Reply

    Life IS Relationship.Thus life is overtly and covertly sorrounded by relationship . Then can't we say that ' Relationship IS life. The 'isness ' is life and it is also relationship .Relationship with nature, people, time and beings (living , dead, or nonliving also) can be called life.Thus understanding life one can be in life and also may probably go beyond life!

    One cannot have both, the inner and other riches 54 Replies

    Our days are so empty, filled with activities of every kind, business, speculation, meditation, sorrow, and joy. But in spite of all these, our lives are empty. Strip a man of position, power, or of money, what is he? He had all that show, outwardly, but he is empty, shallow, inwardly. One can't have both, the inner and other riches. The inner fullness far outweighs the outer. One can be robbed of the outer, outer events can shatter what has been carefully built up; but the inner riches are…Continue

    "What is"

    "What is" is an expression from the writings of K. In itself, as an expression, as words, I might think what is, is not hard to understand. To understand it as I might ordinarily do, as a verbal expression, I understand it is to see what is immediate. Any such element like "what is" becomes to my mind, part of an ability, a comprehension. I can see what is, because I have acquired an understanding, "what is". Say I am a bird watcher. I have a hobby of observing and learning about birds.…Continue
