"The observer is the observed"

When this statement is true to oneself entirely, one is free from conflict and therefore is free.

"Truth Is A Pathless Land." Does This comment Make Sense?

Some people including myself are saying that Krishnamurti made a focus toward ultimate truth which created an imbalance. So why call truth a land, and, if it is even possible to understand this comment at all, can we understand it instantly without thinking about it? (I think it is possible to intuitively understand, at least for a few moments, what he is trying to say, but that it is of minimal functional value in terms of actually transforming human relationship.) And what would…

Choice, Choosing and Confusion

Where there is clarity there is no choice. This, of course, is a statement that can be found in the teachings and it follows naturally that choiceless awareness is a central and pertinent feature, but hearing it, forming an idea about why clarity is without choice is not the same as seeing it for myself. The idea of choicelessness is not choicelessness and the description of it is also not clarity, the seeing of it. So if clarity indicates chiocelessness then choosing indicates non-clarity,… Continue

The narcissism epidemic

Are we in the midst of a narcissism epidemic?  Attention seeking behaviour, the need to stand out, an increased focus on image, fame and money seem to be on the rise. Researchers from the U.S. have found that young people’s average scores against the Narcissistic Personality Inventory are significantly higher than in previous generations. We explore the causes, symptoms and possible solutions to this growing trend of self obsession.

Time Out

I give the child a "time out" when I want to break a pattern of activity that I consider to be mischievous, disorderly, even destructive and this must be effective because the strategy has been around for quite a while and used by parents everywhere. In this regard, a time out many times includes removing the child from the environment and ending the interactions and relationships in which the obnoxious behavior was manifesting. The child is then left alone to be with himself, with the hope… Continue

Observation as correct functioning

There is a difference between investigating oneself with an intention to observe/understand - and wondering endlessly about hypotheticals for amusement. It seems that the former is the way of life that is the correct functioning of a human being.

Some would rather not observe/understand, however, preferring to be comfortable in believing themselves to have somehow graduated into imaginary roles supported by bodies having experiences. Because of this deep identity belief and need to…

Nothing to say

Si asked me to post something here. 

I pondered and pondered, got close a couple of times, but I realized I really had nothing much to say. 

The kinds of questions I normally ask, topics I set out to explore -- the nature of existence and all that -- just seem to have lost their sex appeal for me. I can dig into them with all my might, bring all my analytical resources to bear ... but none of that touches the *experience* of it, of life, consciousness, being. 

I hope…

Love yourself--- you are the world

Below the K Network are the words "Can I, as a human being, lead a different kind of life"?  Yes, we can. Love yourself ---"You are the world", says K. A lot of psychological phenomena stem from the lack of love.  To start with one can love oneself which is natural and should be the easiest.  By definition, one would be extending it to the world.

    Everything dies 13 Replies

    Death ... it's as "natural" as the breath you're taking right now. There's nothing more natural for any existent than its eventual non-existence. Death is all around us. We are swimming in it. We *are* it.  So, dear friends ... what's the problem? Whence the fear of death, the darkness associated with it?Continue

    When thought is not there, it can be a blank mind, still man is there. Mind is there but no thought.In deep sleep a person is there.Mind is completely absorbed. Here who is the observer and what is observed? May we discuss? Or is it a question not worth discussing?After rising up I generally say, I had a good sleep, I did not observe or know anything, it was a state of great happiness .I know that .It is past now.J.K generally does not go into such discussion though, it is an important point to…Continue

    what is talking?

    Writing is a communication using thought. Most of the time it is in a form which reproduces the characteristics of this form, and this form is what is generating images and responses. It is these thoughts we are thinking about and arriving at an understanding; moving from one conclusion to the next. Is there a way to end this practice and not make it a conclusion? What happens when I read words? Am I looking at the words and mechanically reading, or is it a communion with insight? I can find…Continue

    Simplicity 11 Replies

    Life is very simple and being simple it is direct. What is direct, straight, is possible to touch what is true. We make life very complex, so complex and therefore we are afraid of life. When one goes through all that complexity, the game in which one deceives and is deceived, and comes out of it, without any more concern, bondage, or desire, what remains is directness of life. And love is possible.

    Creation can take place easily if one is in relationship with nature 14 Replies

    Creation can take place if one is in relationship with nature . In the midst of living in the world one must see this, and one must allocate sufficient time to be with nature.
