Thought/Technical Thought/Psychological Thought

I was recently accused of being selfish by deliberately withholding my participation here, and thanks to the person who pointed this out. Yes, that is true, and I am sorry. It is relatively easy for me to do the difficult work that is required to deeply enquire here, and maybe someone will gain something from reading what I write, so here is some possible food for thought on this lovely Sunday:

First, think about the title of the blog. K used all three of these terms, not just the…

The mind can't help itself.

The mind can't help itself. It works for you and for me as part of a separateness. The mind is accumulating knowledge, and all this knowledge is based in the continuing separateness of separate selves. Self improvement is trying to use the knowledge accumulated to address separate selves, not addressing a self center, except verbally, except abstractly. The mind has an understanding founded in separateness. The mind responds with the knowledge suitable for a separate self. To know about…

One can be happy if one knows the true nature of expriences.

Based upon circumstances, phenomena, relationships,, time and place, psychological conditions, beliefs, ideas, ideals one acts and / reacts which lead to experinces.They are infinite.One must be aware of these experiences which are infinitely varied.Knowing this one cant depend upon a particular experience which are apt to vary in time.Thus knowing if one moves in the world one can be free and happy!

Fun post ,this note is not for you.

Psychological centres in the place to ''connect with others interested in k's message'',are they here to centrifuge further or to communicate and seek to understand the common denominator?

Things dont turn out as desired or taught as it should be from one personal crisis to the next in a never-ending seeking for the ultimate.In the macro same politically ,economically it is a never-ending rearranging of priorities with the individual position not considered at all.Particularly or…

Thought's Center

Thought has a tendency to dominate functions of mind and body from which it engenders a 'Center', (the product of its own workings) as the intertwining creator of itself. The propensity to separate the center from the periphery distorts thought and garbles the whole psyche. Going deeper, what is the source of belief, the acceptance of something as a fact or truth, without evidence of what actually is. Is the source of belief the willingness to blindly accept? It seems that belief arises from…

Life is a field of sports.

Life is a field of sports. One can take part in the sports as a sportsman only.Also he or she can enjoy the sports as a spectator even!Thus only happiness is the result. Nonpartisan witnessing is also a great phenomena in life!

One can come nearer truth

That which vanishes or is liable to vanish sooner or later is false.That which does not have such properties is Truth.
Thus knowing false and truth one goes nearer truth.To meet truth is thus possible.

    How are we related to life? 445 Replies

    Life is so rich in so many aspects. It is like an endless treasure. But what is our daily life? Is it tied down to the few monotonous routines? Continue

    Thought vs Observation 983 Replies

    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

    Ending the ego 135 Replies

    Is there life after the self?  If I understand K at all, real life only begins after the self is gone.  The life I currently live doesn't seem to me to be worth living, so why can't I make the required turn?  All I need to do is to say 'No' to the continuation of what I'm living now.Continue

    Transformation and New Dimension of Being

    Patricia :Yes, Victor, have noticed too the lack of interest when something important like this is the subject.   It is the work that is avoided.  Krishnamurti said the work is arduous.  It is, and painful too.  People prefer to interpret what he said as: if you just see something, magically you will be transformed to the highest level.    Seeing can be transformative but not to my knowledge in a way that transports one to the ultimate.  Not sure anyone can attain that state on a continuous…Continue

    There is a possibility of one's transformation 5 Replies

    By seeing 'what is' there is a possibility of one's transformation, otherwise it is impossible.

    Relationship is life and life is relationship 1 Reply

    Life IS Relationship.Thus life is overtly and covertly sorrounded by relationship . Then can't we say that ' Relationship IS life. The 'isness ' is life and it is also relationship .Relationship with nature, people, time and beings (living , dead, or nonliving also) can be called life.Thus understanding life one can be in life and also may probably go beyond life!

    One cannot have both, the inner and other riches 53 Replies

    Our days are so empty, filled with activities of every kind, business, speculation, meditation, sorrow, and joy. But in spite of all these, our lives are empty. Strip a man of position, power, or of money, what is he? He had all that show, outwardly, but he is empty, shallow, inwardly. One can't have both, the inner and other riches. The inner fullness far outweighs the outer. One can be robbed of the outer, outer events can shatter what has been carefully built up; but the inner riches are…Continue

    "What is"

    "What is" is an expression from the writings of K. In itself, as an expression, as words, I might think what is, is not hard to understand. To understand it as I might ordinarily do, as a verbal expression, I understand it is to see what is immediate. Any such element like "what is" becomes to my mind, part of an ability, a comprehension. I can see what is, because I have acquired an understanding, "what is". Say I am a bird watcher. I have a hobby of observing and learning about birds.…Continue
