Goodness shows itself in behaviour and action and in relationship. Generally our daily behaviour is based on either the following of certain patterns – mechanical and therefore superficial – or according to very carefully thought-out motive, based on reward or punishment. So our behaviour, consciously or unconsciously, is calculated. This is not good behaviour. When one realizes this, not merely intellectually or by putting words together, then good behaviour comes out of negating what it is not.

I would like to explore conflict, not only conceptually, but also and more importantly, as it appears in day to day living. What is conflict? There is outward conflict that we are all aware of, which manifests economically, politically, socially, racially, so called spiritually, ideologically and militarily. And in every area of human activity there can be conflict and there is conflict. Then there is inward conflict that can manifest in conflicted, reactive…Continue
The last visit I made there, something happened which I thought I was very interesting.
I was seated at the table studying Latin on Duolingo, and Michale walked in to do something in the kitchen of the library. I was already about ready to go, and Michael walked over to me and asked what I was doing, if I was studying Krishnamurti. He was walked towards me when he asked me that, and I got up to meet him as he got closer to me. When he got close enough to me, he placed his hand on my…Continue
Now, I am going to ask a question, you see. Take this whole process of limitation. Suppose I say that there is nothing but the limited. That’s one view. The unlimited is an illusion. …. there is nothing but the limited which we can grasp, right? Now, then I say obviously thought is going to grasp it by the process of establishing limits which I will call limitation. So, I am going to ask myself a…Continue
When president Donald Trump tells his business partners in Israel to block congressional oversight of billions of tax dollars into his activities in Jerusalem, and the West bank, with the Kushners, and maybe see into the chicanery of Benjamin Netanyahu and criminal business ventures of his right wing minority party? It is a sure sign our racist president is becoming a right wing merciless wanna be American dictator supporting the rise of merciless dictators globally. See these things for…Continue

K: I understand that. But I am trying to find out the origin of all this misery, confusion, conflict, struggle - what is the beginning of it? That's why I asked at the beginning: has mankind taken a wrong turn? Is the origin, `I am not I'.? DB: I think that is getting closer.K: Yes, that's it. And the `I' - why has mankind created this `I', which must, inevitably, cause conflict? `I' and `you', and `I' better than `you', and so on, and so on. DB: I think it was a mistake made a long time ago,…Continue

For inquiry into truth one must tread oneself by oneself without depending upon others 'ideas ,beliefs and experiences as a guide.one is guru and disciple both for oneself.Continue

"I have been trying to explain what is the right inward condition in which one can truly be oneself; that so long as the habit-forming mechanism exists one cannot truly be oneself, even if it is considered good. All habit must prevent clarity of perception and must conceal one's own integrity. This mechanism has been developed as a means of escape, a process of concealment, of covering up one's own confusion and uncertainties; it has been developed to cover up the futility of one's own actions…Continue

A highly ego conscious person is unable to come to the path of inquiry. His or her advancement is blocked.Ego must be totally nullified for inquiry into various aspects as regards finding truth.This must be understood first and foremost.Continue

This.For some time now I have been using the word ‘this’ or ‘this is’ to express what I see as the distillation of ‘the teachings’. The problem is that this is usually interpreted by others to mean an idea or philosophy. We are used to ‘this’ having an attached object - this fear, this psychological thought, this violence, this self, this idea etc. ‘This’, on its own, is not particularised. It means the same as ‘what is’. So why don’t I just say ‘what is’? I actually often do, but there is a…Continue

Talking on a web page, such as a blog, you may think this is strictly a communication with written words, and it is about reading and replying. You may think the communication must be two or more remote people, connecting with writing, and language, and that this is something to make clear, and with it lead to realisation.But let’s get to the point. Either here or somewhere else, reading a book, going to a meeting, much of the groundwork of learning, and not learning, has probably been…Continue

Krishnamurti: "I am a movement of memories. If I have an insight into that, I am nothing, there is nothing. ... Nothing then contains the whole universe – not my petty little fears, anxieties, problems, sorrow."(To home in on what I wanted to home in on, I condensed the full K quote, which is at the end of this.)
