I and awareness cannot go together.

If there is' I ' then awareness cannot be.

"If you really want to enter the space of wisdom...:

Shiva wrote the message copied in below (minus comments he was responding to) a few days ago and it is my view that it is written from the 'space of wisdom'.   He brings together the mystic and science in a way that, at least I, can understand.

Please understand there will be a time delay for responses to this Blog.  Responses require approval.

Here follows Shiva's message:

"If you really want to enter the space of wisdom, you have to go beyond finding something…

The story teller.

It is quite amazing what can be done with words, with thought. A linear story, a work of fiction is mentally manufactured. The story is carried around by the readers, editing and extending the story, talking amongst themselves.  There is very little understanding by themselves, they are involved in, consumed by, a story, to the exclusion of a comprehensive view. They can talk together about topics such as awareness, or perception, or reality, still following along in a linear existence, and…

    Habit of avoiding aloneness 13 Replies

    I have observed that we are always reaching somewhere. We want to keep ourselves engaged. When there is a moment of blankness during our busy day, we get impatient and try to fill it up with some thought or something to engage ourselves with.Mind is so restless. It never ceases to be. But sometimes it slows down when we relax a bit (mentally) and then whatever is around us fill us up. The degree to which it happens is directly proportionate to the extent to which the mind is still.Continue

    Is there such a thing as 'Right Thinking'? 23 Replies

    All thinking is done for a purpose, and thinking has the beneficiary of this purpose at its center. This beneficiary is the thinker -- the psychological "I." Thought is never free of this "I," and in my view thought cannot be made free. Where there is thinking/thought, there also is the thinker/"I."The psychological "I" is the source of all of mankind's problems because the "I" is separative, fractional, incomplete. Action (which is actually reaction) springing from thinking/thought and the "I"…Continue

    Meditation, Living Without a Witness 1 Reply

    Meditation, in my view,  cannot be something separate from life, everyday life, and therefore a balanced  approach may be prosaic, rather than exceptional, austere rather than extravagant. Therefore, I would say that meditation is not actually segmented apart from our everyday living, and yet we can see this segmenting taking place everywhere in life. K says that life is a series of challenges, and logically I can comprehend that the challenge itself is not having a problem, rather the problem…Continue

    What is life? 37 Replies

    Krishnamutri said that consciousness is its content. We ask, "What do we mean by "life"?What Krishnamutri said about consciousness also applies to life. "Life" is the events and activities of being. Life is its content.Continue

    Thought vs Observation 1769 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

    Esse est percipi! 101 Replies

    My first acquaintance with Krishnamurti's work was in 1959 when I read his book The First and Last Freedom.What particularly aroused my interest was his deep insight into the question of the observer and the observed.This question has long been close to the centre of my own work as a theoretical physicist who was primarily interested in the meaning of the quantum theory.In this theory ,for the first time in the development of physics,the notion that the observer and the observed cannot be…Continue
