Understanding adversity.

When I come to a forum I understand there are many different people, but there is a mind, a clever mind, a dangerous mind, full of twists and turns.  We only have this mechanism for engaging with the mind, with another mind, as it were. Hence, a perpetual division.  So the mind has acquired this perpetual division,  and uses the separateness …

Push the truth away

Face the feeling of not being satisfied What are we not satisfied with? It is obvious 

that what we are dissatisfied with is the truth in front of us. For example, the 

social order, the existing relationship, and the present state of being, filled with 

ugly thoughts, ambitions, frustrations, and fears, we thought we could find a 

solution to satisfy ourselves, and therefore forever in search of ways to change the

 immediate truth, if we were dissatisfied w…

Inquiring Into Naming: The Mind Functions By Images: Subjective Experience IS A Form Of Evidence

I do not at all understand what Krishnamurti was trying to say about it not being productive for the mind to function by images of perceived objects. For instance I have formed an image about most everyone I know.  The mind functions by making images. According to extensive understanding and inquiry over very many years, several decades, it has become clear as day to me that this is literally HOW  the mind functions, by making images. So what was K trying to get across?

Start with yourself.

Start with yourself, not with some theories or projects. Why is this so difficult? Is it fear? What is fear? We think of fear as the response to a threat, to danger. Sometimes we are aware of other fears, like a fear of heights, but probably still think of this as an experience of danger. There are many psychological conditions we may suffer, but live with these as part of lives, and talk about them as idiosyncratic anomalies. We may seek to have treatment for some, because we hear about…

I don't get it.

Like Pavlovs trained dog, the object comes with conditions. Throw a ball at my feet and I will kick it. See a coin on the ground and I will pick it up. Catch sight of an attractive person and I will be stimulated. Psychologically, the observed has mental connections, and when I think about something, read about it, hear about it, it is not just a word, a reference, an idea, there is a conditioned connection encapsulated in the thought. I can’t help but automatically act on verbal…

    Truth is not of the past or of the present. 113 Replies

    Truth is not of the past or of the present, it is timelessThere is no path to truth and there are not two truths. Truth is not of the past or of the present- it is timeless - and the man who quotes the truth of the Buddha, of Shankara, of the Christ, or who merely repeats what I am saying, will not find truth because repetition is not truth: repetition is a lie. Truth is a state of being which arises when the mind -which seeks to divide, to be exclusive, which can only think in terms of…Continue

    Does awareness end with the physical senses? Or is awareness (which requires  contact, and therefore unity, to at least some extent) something more?Awareness seems to be a movement, an unending, deeper and deeper movement.  When there is any pause or hesitation in this movement, awareness ceases.  What is the source of this movement, the source of awareness?Continue

    Origin of THought 9 Replies

    In a series of discussions, JK has also talked about what thought is and its impacts and ramifications in the world of man. For example that thought is divisive, is the past; that thought is memory, etc.However, there is seemingly devoid discussion on the real origin of thought. All that is talked much about thought is its consequences, impacts, and so on. So what is the origin or cause of thought, or thinking?Continue

    The farthest star Hubble has been able to see is 9,000,000,000 light years from us.We are what we behold.  The observer is the observed.  The truth is "what is."We look at the robin outside our window and we look at the light bouncing off of the star and these two instances of looking have this in common:  the observer may be the observed, but in neither case is either the observer or the observed the thing itself.Continue
