The ultimate question?

Hello people, I imagined a funny question about what is beyond the most little particle it exists in the universe. This was imagined from a discussion about quantum physics and multiunivers.



So to discover the truth about matter, two friends founded a way to look into the most little particle of the cosmos. When they opened the particle as a barbecue, what you think they have found out in it, or see?

That's a funny question, I will…

A man must go beyond time to be transformed

As long as thought is man cant be transformed, since thought is in the past  and in time.as long as time is man cant be transformed.A transformed man lives not in time,he lives  each moment only.

Man has to aspire to be released

Division idea or notion is due to ignorance only.Ignorance as regards ' real ' and 'unreal'

Is the first cause of division and false understanding.This must be totally cleared up in the mind of an aspirant.then other things follow up, then other things like Sama, dama titikshya, sraddha, samadhanata, and uparamata come up before intense desire to be released from the rounds of births and deaths arise known as mumukhuta.Thereafter the aspirant goes to a Guru who knows every thing of…

Power

Have you ever observed in yourself, or in others how power corrupts?

Looking at Krishnamurti’s comments concerning power, I understand him to have said power is one of our deeper desires, issuing from loneliness. If I understand what K meant by the word loneliness it is something like an inner deadness, or feeling powerless. It seems reasonable that someone who feels powerless would seek power, through domination of others, which of course includes sex, material possessions…

What happened in my first conference.

As I posted lately, I organized a conference about quantum physics and thought mechanism in September. Unexpectedly there was a lot of interest to it, around 1.6 k of interest and 248 participation on Facebook.

The day of the conference, it was a special day without a car in the city, so people was only being capable of moving true public transport. There were a lot of people who missed the event, btw, 80 people or more were present, and I prepared nothing to say to…

Is there measurement pyschologically?

K used to say that measurement is the product of thought.But what did he mean by that?Can we say that measurement is illusion?For Instance,From the point I have started to read K's books 2 years ago I have felt that I have become better much better person. I have started looking things from a different prspective ,I can discerns thoughts better now.So I am asking myself whether such a statement is false.Can I use the word 'better'? And if the measurement is an illusion of thought, …

Concern for some members

 Chris: I’ll be going away for a couple of weeks. I’ll see what you ‘covered’ when I get back...

  It seems like he didn’t make it back. Something happened to either him or his wife. Unless they got hooked by the Christmas farce...

  Also, Si being retired and having a certain age and tough life experiences, is missing as well, although it is also possible he got involved in the Christmas farce. 

  And hopefully Hermann is still…

The same Christmas farce

  One sees people here in this place and around very busy. Falling year after year for the same propaganda.the birth of a lunatic with which people associate love and affection within the basic cell of destruction in society: the family.

 The basic cell of conflicts, frictions, the basic cell for the expression of hate.

 You get together around a specially-chopped tree, indulge both mentally in the…

    One cannot do anything 84 Replies

    Paul D has closed the discussion on psychological security but there was an unresolved point (that may have no resolution) but which may be worth looking at: There is nothing that one can do. Co-incidentally someone in the chat room pasted a link to a K video where at the conclusion of a talk, the final talk after 5 or 6 days of dialogue, K says that 'there is nothing that one can do' (paraphrasing, can't remember the exact words). This part of the discussion happens at about the 1.15 hr point…Continue

    The Greatest Danger? 15 Replies

    This is lifted from the discussion, "What is the Greatest Danger in Life?" in which it was suggested that the greatest danger is ceasing to exist:Is it a "danger" not to exist? The fact is that you -- we -- as entities (thinker, self, ego, psychological "I," whatever else) do not exist in the first place.  As Krishnamurti pointed out, "The thinker is the thought," e.g., at the moment of thought, there is nothing but the thought itself.  Likewise, at the moment of observation, there is nothing…Continue

    The Nature of Awareness 106 Replies

    This topic came from a discussion Chris and I were having in another thread about whether awareness could change, evolve, learn, be conditioned. And the old classic: Is "my" awareness mine? Do I create it? Or does the the Rick mind have access to a Universal Awareness kind of thingie? Both? Neither? I gave it a very broad title, The Nature of Awareness, so that we wouldn't feel we needed to move in any particular direction, have any specific goals beyond exploring awareness. So if it…Continue
