So Krishnamurti says that desire is the main cause of disorder in the world.

What is your reaction?

Looking/feeling for "I"

When I look for "I" there is no-thing there. It's like looking at "solid" matter: the deeper you look the more the solidity goes away and you're left with ... no-thing (except, perhaps, energy).

It's different if I *feel* for my self/I. It takes a while, but I usually end up feeling a sense of ground, home, rightness.

What do you see when you look and feel for "I" ... ?

Krishnamurti's Dog

"Krishnamurti commented once that for the duration of an hour's walk not a single thought entered his mind -- this raises for us the problem of his dog, for whom we can assume the same state for the period of their walk. What then is the difference in consciousness between these two beings?"

Do Not Do It

If it is a fact, what can you do about it?

Early talks of Krishnamurti

Everyone in the world is seeking Truth, imagines that Truth is away from the ordinary current of life, whereas Truth IS life. I want to show this evening that the moment you understand life as it is taking place around each one of you, then you understand Truth and by understanding Truth you will solve the problems of your own lives. Now, truth never comes through a form, or through any definite mould which has been created by the hand of man, and in order to understand Truth, which is life,… Continue

The Science of the Mind

We have to find out a way that works. It can be a very scientific way as I observe it, feel the fact of it and then translate it in words. It is an on going work, investigation, putting together the pieces.

Peace

Can we find it in our hearts to live and commune peacefully with each other in this little world we've built?

    Absence of pain , is it possible? 22 Replies

    I can be free from pain only if i do not want pleasure.But is it something unreal due to probably lack of a complete or full understanding of life?

    Esse est percipi! 36 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

    Transformation for Humans Would Be Meaningless if the Self Did Not Exist 16 Replies

    I think the basic fact (as life is) is that it is messy, difficult and confusing -- without the striving (of the self) to transform moment to moment. Without the Self -- perhaps if we were robots-- transformation or the struggle to transform really would have no meaning. Change the code and voila you are transformed. Can't do it as a human. Part of the beauty of being human is that we struggle--always struggle. It is striving ---like a basketball player who stretches to drop the ball in a…Continue

    Can one see the knowledge in passion? 4 Replies

    Knowledge, that which obstructs perception of "what is", is rudimentary to passion. Knowledge may distort one's world view, and the world, as it is, appears to need change.  K spoke of passion without motive. How is that operable? Would that also be the same as passion without knowledge, without self)?Continue

    Pleasure 50 Replies

    Are we humans pleasure junkies?Are we, by nature, drawn towards pleasure and away from pain?Are pleasure and pain in a zero sum relationship: The total pleasure you experience = the total pain?Are pleasure and peace mutually exclusive? Pleasure and love? Continue

    Can we solve this problem of relationship? 366 Replies

    Why is that we human beings have not been able to solve this problem of relationship though we have lived on this earth for millions of years? Is it because each one has his own particular image put together by thought, and that our relationship is based on two images, the image that the man creates about her and the image the woman creates about him? So in this relationship we are as two images living together. That is a fact. If you observe yourself very closely, if one may point out, you…Continue

    Conditioning 34 Replies

    It seems fairly simple to intellectually, logically, appreciate that thought is the product of conditioning. It is also obvious that this intellectual appreciation does nothing to free us from that conditioning. Perhaps it is because the thought that thought itself is conditioning is itself a thought that is the product of conditioning.... Like, everything I think is the result of conditioning, including this thought.If we see this then it becomes clear that thought/conditioning can do nothing…Continue
