Random Topics---First Topic--Eternalism

Sorry I do not want to be a pig on Ning by having two blogs and/or discussions on the front page. That is not my general practice, as I like to be an example for cooperative communication, but I am going to do it as the inquiry on my other blog is getting very deep for me, and I need a spot to address many other topics that are seeming to come up here,  and so write more frequently.

I used to enjoy posting on other people's blogs but I stopped doing that because of  the posting of…

K is a great Teacher

K is generally known as a Teacher and a PHILOSOPHER.THUS HIS teachings are also open.By these teachings people are benefited .To what extent one is benefited is known by him or her only.And the effects of these teachings are also being expressed in the society.Just like a Guru is able to attract many followers similarly in this case also, unless people are benefited its effects would not spread.But it is spreading , people do follow his teachings in net, or they read the publications , and or… Continue

A Mystical Experience I Am Having As I Write This

This blog, "The Wry Trash Repository," is to post my own various and sundry thoughts and also tidbits I am finding as I comb through my old emails deleting messages, but please do not trash me here, if possible. Just about anything might be put on here. Remember, one man's trash is another person's treasure. I will probably delete most material posted by others, but not necessarily all, especially if it is thought provoking and/or funny. Warning/invitation: Anything you post here…

On Consciousnesses

Living consciousness is different from Consciousness which is always.After physical death Consciousness remains.

Reality is a living thing

« previous | next »

Reality is a living thing

Reality is a peculiar thing; it is there when you are not looking, but when you do look, with greed, what you capture is the sediment of your greed, not reality. Reality is a living thing and cannot be captured, and you cannot say it is always there. There is a path only to something which is stationary, to a fixed, static point. To a living thing which is constantly in movement, which has no resting place how can there be a guide, a path?… Continue

Continuity of memory

When a conversation is completely understood, you need not go over the whole of that conversation again though you may remember the incident, the psychological memory uses the factual memory as a means to get something out of it. Even facts are not remembered unless there is a basis of avoidance or gain. What makes you remember a conversation? When that conversation is not completed or its significance has not been completely understood. When completed and fully understood, the contents and the… Continue

I must change first k

any action which has any deep significance, must begin with each one of us. I must change first; I must see what is the nature and structure of my relationship with the world -and in the very seeing is the doing; therefore I, as a human being living in the world, bring about the different quality, and that quality, it seems to me, is the quality of the religious mind.

Thought cant affect my peace.

Wind blows all my door and window openings, outside,let it blow outside, but not in my room , which is possible if i close all my room openings.similarly thoughts useful may be accepted, others may not be allowed, it depends on my determination .thus thought cant affect my peace and tranquility.

    Does the Past Exist? 352 Replies

    The past is yesterday, and yesterday cannot be brought forward. But yesterday, the past, can be reconstructed . What we call the past is our version -- our memory -- of "what was," activated and made a present reality through physical reaction to that memory.Without this reconstruction of what was, the present unfolds naturally and logically from where it IS, never from the distorting where it WAS. Without this reconstruction, "the past" cannot be said to exist.Continue

    "Practically Everything We Do Is Thought In Action"* 43 Replies

    "Thought in action" is more accurately characterized as thought in reaction. There is always a reason, a purpose, that stimulates the thinking process, so thinking is a reaction.But is there an action that is not the reaction of thinking? Is there such a thing as true action -- "original action" -- from which subsequent reaction springs? I would say that there is.True action is the action of awareness -- sensing and sensitivity -- and this is the choiceless action of understanding. Choiceless…Continue

    Kind and loving 13 Replies

    Amidst the family and friends, socially, I may think I am kind and loving.  There can be difficulties and annoyances but I might even understand this is an issue of my own, not distracting from the sense of kind and loving.  I assume kind and loving is good behaviour towards others.  When not kind and loving, annoyed, upset, disturbed, angry, even violent, I feel regret, remorse, and want to be more kind and loving. In different situations I feel justified in my actions, accepting I am not kind…Continue

    Esse est percipi! 139 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

    Psychological security is not to be found in achievements

    « previous | next »Psychological security is not within the field of achievementIt seems to me that one of the greatest stumbling blocks in life is this constant struggle to reach, to achieve, to acquire. We are trained from childhood to acquire and to achieve - the very brain cells themselves create and demand this pattern of achievement in order to have physical security, but psychological security is not there in achievements.K says in Freedom from the knownCan we discuss this?what is this…Continue
