Krishnamurti Quote

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.

The Whole Movement of Life is Learning, chapter 2: Freedom is essential for the beauty of goodness

Technology

Technology has made it easier to do things. It also has made it possible to do more and interact more widely. So now I can expand the breadth and depth of all kinds of activities. With computers, the internet, and mobile phones, I can examine things much more than I could before, spend even more time searching, and have lots and lots of very complicated research, and development. Things I wouldn't have done before. Is all this time and effort anything more than spending time at a busy… Continue

Speaking Freely.

Speaking Freely.
In a meeting people are expressing themselves. For example, it could be a social, business, or community meeting. People come as they are and talk about their perspectives, interests, concerns and beliefs. The interaction people have can be therapeutic, or it is complicated. It is where each other maybe thinking about some common concern or interest, but they are viewing the…

An Inquiry into "a River" as a Metaphor

It seems that Krishnamurti use the a river as  a metaphor to explore what he saw as meditation or in meditation. I was thinking this over and seeing especially in regard to various kinds of things entering the river, while the river was always able to purify itself and also that the various pollutants never really touched the river.  I wonder if we can explore this a bit together, think it over together, inquiring into it's meaning? How does the "river," if we can understand what K's…

    Doing the Work, or Not? 19 Replies

    K: When we talk about work, we mean by that becoming aware of that responsibility, as a human being living in this world, that he has to work to bring about a change within himself. And if he really changes, if he brings about a mutation in himself, then he will transform society. Society is not transformed through any revolution, economic or social.What is your relationship to this frightful confusion, to this destructive chaos? If you would bring order out of this chaos, where would you…Continue

    What is Choiceless Observation or Awareness, and What is analysis?

    What is Choiceless Observation or Awareness, and What is analysis?K: It is really extraordinarily interesting to watch the operation of one's own thinking, just to observe how one thinks, where that reaction we call thinking, springs from. Obviously from memory. - Freedom From the Known**There seems to be some confusion between 'choiceless awareness' and the 'act of describing' what appears in the awareness. There appears to be an assumption, 'in the conditioning', that in describing what…Continue

    What is reading?

    What is reading?When I read a novel, the story is being received imaginatively. The impact of the words and the interaction with the mind, is what the reader evaluates. It is an engaging, interesting, pleasurable, story, or the reader skips a lot, looks for more from the writing, and eventually gives up on the book. The same is happening when studying, although there is more incentive to plough through the reading even if it is not interesting.Reading is usually this imaginative interaction…Continue

    Carefully talking together 9 Replies

    Carefully talking together, or dialogue, about something common to us all, is not about personal experiences, personal ability, or personal judgement. It is sharing of a human psychology, not limited to individual perceptions of daily life.The tendency is to think it is a conversation, a discussion, relying on knowledge, and day to day verbal meanings, or social topics, and that it is a verbal exchange between people. This verbal approach is stuck in opinion, ideas, theories, and beliefs, and…Continue

    K: You asked: What is the teaching? Right? I'll say it in a few words, and that is: Where you are, the other is not. How do you receive that statement? You see, when you drop a stone from very close above the water, there will be no ripple.  It will go gently down to the bottom. Now, does that take place, or are there a lot of ripples which are agitations? And, do you say, "My God, what does that mean?" How am I to get rid of it? Now, how do you receive the statement?RM: We are reminded of…Continue
