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 wonder what you might think, feel, when you hear the phase pure function? I am reflecting now on a conversation between Bohm and Krishnamurti- Gstadd 1965, discussion 6. I encourage those who are interested in this to listen to this discussion. A lot was covered in this dialogue in which they talked about Einstein's theory of relativity and then function as time. They went into time, space, energy, existence and non-existence. They talked about function as ordered in time as a…Continue
Faith is essential.If one wants to be transformed then one must take action immediately.In this process one may go to a Realised soul and receive instruction so that it will lead one in the right direction.In the physical absence of a realised soul he may take the help of scriptures,but by reading the scriptures one may not be able to understand its meaning .thus for understanding this the help of a Guru may be needed.In the absence of a guru he may try to understand all by oneself,but…Continue
What is it that knows?
Probably the word “self” is the best word to use to face up to conditioning, but it also doesn’t seem to ring true with a lot of people. What about the word “psyche”?
We don’t look at the psyche objectively. We don’t consider actually realising the conditioning. The way the psyche is impelling us to act is not seen directly, but externally, like the weather. We continue to adjust the content of the psyche, using the psyche. Any implied danger,…Continue
She needs to stop the delusion of time.
She keeps talking about processing information which means time.
Unfortunately people join this group without ending time first and want to lecture.
It will never work like that.
We can't argue with a Truth*
We can only argue with false.
so always try to verify and inquire, ie, question along the way
one problem is, though, some material is not that…Continue

“When you are a light to yourself you are a light to the world.”
It appears K thought one might become a light through meditation and he gives direction on how. That is, his view of meditation is somewhat different than the general view.
“I am not telling you how to meditate - that is too silly, that is too infantile. Because one of the first things is that one must be free, to be completely a light to oneself. You understand? A light to oneself. And…Continue
The song Moving on up represents the greener grass systemic corruption built into our educational system, in the United States and other Westernized nations in the world. Instead of making where they are better ignorant human beings accept modern materialism in a consumer driven militarist nation spending all their money on plundering other nations resources just to make their synthetic lives, their cloned grass, and plastic lives seem greener.…Continue

In discussion with Paul and Bruce, both have mentioned something which Krishnamurti also refers to. It is that the human mind and 'my' mind are the same thing. This refers to each mind having very similar capacity - for thought, feeling, emotion etc. I hypothesise that this is due to shared genetics. The brain has similar 'functionality' in every person in the same way that our lungs and liver do. This functionality is genetic conditioning. This is not that important to what follows.Seeing that…Continue
