There is a Forum for discussion, which invites replies and further discussion. There is a Blog, where people like to think what is said is free thinking, and doesn't invite replies, but you can if you dare. So let's have a new listing; Rant, and it is understood it is all rubbish and a waste of effort. We could also have Symptom; which is the endless knowing. Probably lots more to suit all the idiosyncrasies. When do I face up to the individual, and not let it wander around?
For some reason I was thinking, the other day, about the things we two-legged featherless bipeds have in common, like being two-legged featherless bipeds, and my mind got to wandering into the room where I keep all of my existential archives.
One archive kept clearing it throat, so I gave it a glance. It was titled Sense of Self Mechanics, and it struck me that this business of an on/off/on movement was about as mechanical as it gets, and were one to experience such an experience,…Continue

There are three elements: observer, his/her attention and observed. If the observer is silent/empty then the whole attention is focused on the observed. Only then, the observer can become the observed.
I came across the thought that before I could approach the question of what it means to know, I should first ask myself the question of what I know. Thus I asked myself the question of what I do know.
The first answer I found was that I knew that I was asking myself the question of what it is I know, which told me that I was aware of what I was presently doing. Thus my first answer was that I know what I am doing while I am doing it, which brought forth the notion of a presential…Continue
I am writing this for a threefold reason---first because it is Martin Luther King day in the United States, so to honor this great human being and all that he stands for---secondly to connect the love and admiration I feel in my heart for the people of the African American culture to all people who have struggled and are struggling bravely to transcend great difficulty- --and thirdly to enquire into the teaching of Krishnamurti because the way I intend to delve into this topic will apply to…Continue

We need social change, a complete revolution in our relationship between man and man, which has bred this monstrous society. There is violence in our heart, in our relationship. Each person is concerned about himself and not about another. And action invariably breeds conflict; all our life, whatever we are doing, only brings confusion, misery, conflict. Again this is a fact. Whether that action is a conscious action or an unconscious action, it breeds conflict in all our being - whatever we…Continue

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

For attention we must bid farewell to all kinds of feelings, because with feelings there can not be attention., and without attention there is no stillness and therefore we can't come to silence that is required for peace.thus attention is very much required.

Since, Krishnamurti was not aware of these missing items of mind attributes, which are the reasons for fragmentation, he erroneously concludes that 'thinking' as the cause or reason for fragmentation, but the 'thinking' is the function which brings out the fragmentation to surface, make it apparent, make the fragmentation to manifest.If one has a great pain in one of his leg, doctors may inject a pain killer, removing the pain for a while. But in that one may even not feel the leg as well. then…Continue

As you know there is a great deal of terrorism. I think generally we think of it as violent acts by a political, ideological, or religious fanatic or zealot. But it could be coercion and intimidation. For you and me, what is the terror? Is it really any different to the experience of war, or some great destruction, like tsunami, famine, or epidemic?Is it that I think in terms of a sense of order, of stability, safety, progression, and a comfort in customs and beliefs? But is this the case? For…Continue

"So there is disorder. And order is necessary, otherwise there can be no peace at all. And it is only in peace, in quietness, in beauty, that goodness can flower. Order is virtue, not the cultivated virtue of a cunning mind. Order is virtue, and order is a living thing, just as virtue is a living thing. So virtue cannot be practiced as things are...what the mind can do is find out what disorder is...then out of that understanding will come order." JK, AOI, p. 212Can this take place…Continue

Dr. Bruce Greyson reports of cases that suggest that consciousness does not need a physical brain and in fact not even a physical body. Presented at the "Cosmology and Consciousness Conference" hosted by Upper TCV, Dharamsala, in 2011.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yosn_GHYiR4Continue

If one reads this discussion between Krishnamurti and Bohm, with paying attention to the highlighted sections in bold letters, it is clear that conditioning is in the brain, is in the cells of the brain, according to Krishnamurti. That is conditioning as defined by Krishnamurti as past knowledge, memory consisting of past experiences, etc., etc., is in the brain. Not only that, the 'Thinking' is also, comes from brain.Here, you may notice that Krishnamurti at one point talks about the "Interval…Continue

All most 100 percent of Krishnamurti followers would say, that they are not following K. But this is not due to the fact, that they understand Krishnamurti, when he said, "Don't follow me!", but because, that they have taken the advice given by K, as to not to follow him. But when confronted with any arguments about spirituality or religion, they would only quote Krishnamurti. Then it is evident that they are following Krishnamurti, for sure. But this following of Krishnamurti, as such, is in a…Continue
