Birthright

Perhaps the ability to be choicelessly aware is our birthright, a natural human ability along with thinking, walking, talking, emoting, feeling, reproducing. Perhaps the organism wants, even yearns to be choicelessly aware.

let us see what they mean

Some persons think, perhaps, that fiction is limited by imagination, and not by understanding; in other words, after I have formed some fictitious idea, and affirm it exists as this form in nature, I am thereby precluded from thinking of it in any other form. For instance, when I have feigned (to repeat their argument) that the nature of body is of a certain kind, and have desired to…

The Best Judge of Prose

I don't much care for coincidences. There's something spooky about them: you sense momentarily what it must be like to live in an ordered, God-run universe, with Himself looking over your shoulder and helpfully dropping coarse hints about a cosmic plan. I prefer to feel that things are chaotic, free-wheeling, permanently as well as temporarily crazy - to feel the certainty of human ignorance, brutality and folly. ''Whatever else happens,'' Flaubert wrote when the…

Living and what is

'What is ' is beyond time.Man must live with 'what is ' now and without sorrow or conflicts.

Demonstrations should not be used to cloud the issues. As we endure postponement after postponement. Direct action program can be delayed no longer. You may well ask: "Why direct action? Why sit ins, marches and so forth? Indeed, this is the very purpose of direct action. Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored. My citing the creation…

Consciousness is of four states

Consciousness has four different states,called. unconscious,semiconscious,conscious and super conscious.Thus consciousness is the substratum of life.

    Death 50 Replies

    Anybody interested in dying? It comes down to this, that's the bottom line, isnt it?  Is anyone interested in finding out? Nothing else matters if we insist in living life under our terms, which by default must bring in conflict. In other words, is anyone tired of living one more second life in one's terms? Is anyone ready for the ultimate 'sacrifice' ? If yes, I wanna hear about it. If no, I also wanna hear why not?Is it not a matter of life and death?Continue

    What is it that brings about a fundamental change in consciousness? 364 Replies

    This consciousness which is conditioning itself through its own volitional activities - this 'I' process of ignorance, wants, fear, illusion - is the centre of action. This centre is continually reforming itself and creating anew its own limitation through its own volitional activities, and so there is always conflict, pain, sorrow. There must be a fundamental change in consciousness, in this very centre of action; mere discipline and the authority of ideals cannot bring about the cessation of…Continue

    Silence. 9 Replies

    You see, silence is still conflict!! To speak from silence is to speak from conflict! More refined, more subtle, less chaotic, but still conflict. There is more order in silence, but that order is (still) disorder.Continue

    Thought vs Observation 1623 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 Brain and the Mind, the Conscious and the Unconscious 85 Replies

    What do we say about these terms and what they are pointing to?  Do we divide these or are they all one?  Each will have their own interpretation, their own meaning for the terms, their own understanding or seeing.  And then there will be the one or two who will say it's all illusion, what are you talking about. Here is what K had to say:Krishnamurti: What is the difference between the mind and the brain; is that it, Sir? The actual physical brain, which is the result of the past, which…Continue

    What is an individual. 8 Replies

    It's a habit isn't it, conventional thinking, to say, yes, what this person says is true, and I'll go to meetings, attend functions, talk about this with people, and I'll assert the truth of this, and be very sure it is setting me on the right path. When people don't take me seriously, or argue with me, I'll be very sure it is because they are against new ideas, or have their own problems which they need to fix. I'll have to point out the bad effect they have on me, on the proper proceedings,…Continue

    Im tempted to state, that I used to be smart, but most of what I assumed to be, has been shattered, and IM comfortably ignorant, as I am no longer placing worth on the so called knowledge that in the persuit of security, bound me to the point that, in short I was suicidal, as this content of what I thought I was, would not shut up, would demand occupation, and no thinking, or understanding worked. Maybe I am partially wrong about what worked, but I am comforably ignorant, and the urge to know…Continue

    Actuality - actualized 68 Replies

    Recently, there was a discussion on "actuality", started by Diana. As part of her personal freedom, I accept her decision to delete this entire discussion.However, since there were some more people involved in this discussion, I have the impression that it might be helpful to have some continuation, starting with some kind of summary.In my understanding "actuality" refers to the non-literal "actual" meaning of an utterance, irrespective of any literal meanings that can be looked up in a…Continue
