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

A state of living

It is immaterial if one lives or dies tomorrow if fear is not.But if fear is then living is full with pain and miseries!

Breath like a trunk of a tree, I ground my thinking in the Earth.

And set it free.

Will computers ever become intelligent?

It feels like there is something non mechanical in operation within each of our minds, something that is beyond description and definition. Because of this it feels like computers will never be able approach the intelligence of the human mind. But computers are making astonishing advancements doing things that we never thought they would be able to like composing music, generating paintings, and can talk to and supposedly understand us to an extent.

Are we just fantastically complex…

What is memory?

What is memory?



I can have memories, remembrances, of family, friends, experiences, behavior, and recall what I know, etc. But there is a different kind of memory which I would call technological. This is the ability to operate, to function. Perhaps like foraging in a forest. I am going about an activity, looking here and there, trying different things, discovering and exploring. This activity is seen as resourceful, beneficial, and is what we hold to, overlooking the question of the… Continue

Fighting for human rights, before “human rights”

Inspired by Mason's post "Us vs Them".

Emir Abdal Qadir Al Jazairi (d. 1883)-  Very briefly, was an Algerian Muslim commander, writer and spiritual teacher who is most famous for resisting the French colonial invasion of Algeria in the 19th century, his chivalric behavior, as well as an incident where he shielded Christians in his home in Damascus during a riot.

Observing

Observing isn't limited to looking at what is before you, watching, reading, meeting someone, and finding it interesting, or not. It is an engagement with all the sensory perceptions and your experience, together with a quiet awareness. You will see your way of thinking, your emotions, your desires, and what you want to say about this. It is opening a door, although there is no door, and moving along through a passageway of attention, where there is no thought, and no point to stopping.

This flame can never be smothered by any outward or inward activity of achievement.**What is the 'flame' burning in our lives?The flame of Choiceless awareness?The flame of wonder, curiousity?The flame of observational inquiry, seeing, learning?Or the flame of thought, theories, beliefs?

    Why is the world so beautiful? 6 Replies

    Looking into the eyes of a child, at someone we love, at a meadow in spring, at a vast and empty winter sky, at a mountain range, at a beautiful painting, at a group of talented dancers, at a moving film, listening to a piece of music, to the wind moving through the trees, to the murmur of birds flying overhead, sharing a moment with someone who is completely different than us, with someone we love can fill us with an overwhelming sense of beauty. Life then carries a richness laced with…Continue

    Does the Observer Observe? 2 Replies

    K: One image, as the observer, observes dozens of other images around himself and inside himself, and he says, `I like this image, I'm going to keep it' or `I don't like that image so I'll get rid of it', but the observer himself has been put together by the various images which have come into being through reaction to various other images. So we come to a point where we can say, `The observer is also the image, only he has separated himself and observes.**What is Krishnamurti pointing to, what…Continue

Look, I want to see what is in the cupboard of my mind, what is stored up there; I want to read all the things it contains because the content of the mind is the mind.

    K: So there is the superficial awareness of the tree, the bird, the door, and there is the response to that, which is thought, feeling, emotion. Now when we become aware of this response, we might call it a second depth of awareness. There is the awareness of the rose, and the awareness of the response to the rose. Often we are unaware of this response to the rose. In reality it is the same awareness which sees the rose and which sees the response. It is one movement and it is wrong to speak of…Continue
