Information...

Information is neutral, i like this a lot.  When i am interested in something i really want to know literally all i can about it, so digging along the path of ones and zeroes is often where i find myself in life...yesterday was such a day.

seeing: mantra of the k-world

'seeing' has become the belief, ritual, prayer and tradition of the k-world..there is no such thing as seeing, it is not verifiable, just an assumption..the eyes only see abstract light and shades without thought and pre-established social knowledge allows one to recognise things of a certain particular culture or you just pass it by or have disjunctive reactions like tribals seeing a plane…

Rebellion is individual action;

it has nothing to do with the crowd.

Rebelliion has nothing to do

with politics, power, violence.

Rebellion has something to do

with changing your consciousness,

your silence, your being.

It is a spiritual metamorphosis. (osho)

Tega: revolt has nothing to do with person or crowd which perpetuate each other..revolt has nothing to do with spirituality that puts you to sleep and depoliticises your…

Willy's Nutshell:

So begins my understanding of understanding. It will be my intent to create the form of that understanding of understanding in the form of that understanding. The caveat here is the it is my form; having no understanding of what form your understanding takes. If you find that we occupy the same form, in some form or other, then my intent will be fulfilled.

There is a glimpse of a form from out of the form. There is a whole-see of a movement that contains a mover. That mover is oneself…

'Dying' - according to JK

"To find out actually what takes place when you die you must die. This isn't a joke. You must die - not physically but psychologically, inwardly, die to the things you have cherished and to the things you are bitter about. If you have died…

What Is Education?

I was thinking yesterday how I could make a list; one side would entail the good points about my upbringing, the other the bad points. This is also how I sometimes teach classes and how to evaluate performances or tasks done.

It's not a difficult task - really - and is quite, in fact, invariable and obvious, that not only would I demarcate some points but throw away not only what seems to have been bad but also redundant or useless. On the top of the bad or throw away list would…

The Unbinding Place:

Note: The following was written some thirty years ago as part of what I called my doodle works (#44; The Unbinding Place). It goes to show that one cannot teach a old dog new tricks:

To change from one form to another is to transform. In the normal course of transforming, something changes from one form to another through the process called transformation. If however, the transformation is from form to no form, a double difficulty arises. The first difficulty is the form of the…

JK's Rx

http://www.jkrishnamurti.org/krishnamurti-teachings/view-text.php?tid=1294&chid=993

“So part of meditation is to find out for oneself whether time can stop. You can't do this saying, 'Time must stop' - it has no meaning. But to understand the whole structure and the nature and the depth of this question. Right? That means: is it possible for the brain to realise that it has no…

Gidding at it.

The following abstraction was derived solely from the experience it describes; thus it may be described as self-fulfilling. Before I get into the the description of the form of four, the self-fulfilling is to be understood as the process that gives birth to the one who will then describe that process. Obviously, or maybe not, the process ends up producing the one who views the process as its process.

That aside, the form of four has one possibility and three realizations of that…

Is time like the slinky?

We have been accumulating time, using the past. When all thought activity, all psychological change,  comes to an end, when you realise the attachment, and let go, is this what happens to time?  It goes back to a fundamental factor of living, and  not psychologically becoming?

    Is it possible for the brain to realise it has no future? 242 Replies

    I think this is really a most tremendous question, in the sense that it questions the nature of our own psychological activity, the same activity that is threatening human existence.It is therefore of no use whatsoever to quickly throw a few answers at it and hope that it goes away.From Talk 4, Brockwood Park, September 1978:...That is, can time come to an end? Please see why it is important. Because our brains are conditioned to time, our brains are the result of a million years and more, how…Continue

    A busy mind. 3 Replies

    There are many things the mind doesn't understand. Throughout life the mind works to understand, and has developed a methodology of understanding. This is a working mind, a busy mind. For the approach to understanding, it uses a busy mind. When it wants an understanding, when it wants to acquire an understanding, it uses the busy mind. What it expresses as an understanding is the result of a busy mind methodology of operation. When this mind encounters an outcome not understood, because it is…Continue

    Where do I start? 16 Replies

    This is a K forum, but really where does it all begin? Do I start with what K said and wrote? Do I start with what I can deliver with words, with language, as a writer, speaker? Do I start as a participant following up ideas, asking questions about what I have read, and joining in with the discussions? Do I pass back and forth comments with other contributors? Where do I actually begin? Don't I start with myself? In this case don't we start with the mind? And we don't mean the mind is the…Continue

    How to live in our society? 6 Replies

    After seeing into the work that the brain has done to humanity as a whole, (divided mess) does one play the game of sick society without taking its conditionings too seriously or what is the approach that comes "from beyond the words", so to speak? Jiddu devoted his life to manifesting this timeless realization, in a way. How can it be otherwise? Hard to put into words, most obviously, something that supposedly comes by it's own timeless realization. But any thoughts/insights?Personally, I see…Continue

    The world is thought too. 78 Replies

    I say I know there is thought and it is in the mind. I think of it as concepts, abstracts, words and ideas, and it is in the mind like a computer. We say if the thinking is very deep, or too complex, it is intellectual. But really everyone has the intellect, and thinks of thought as in the mind. We look at the world with the thoughts in the mind, and search for the words of the poet, words of wisdom. We think understanding is a skill of the mind, and thoughts are elements of the thinking…Continue

    Is thought a problem? In self there are thoughts. Without thoughts the self is not.Acting on a thought is the life.
