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…Continue

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…Continue
The root of desire is thought. Not to say thought is wrong, bad or evil. Carefully, attentively, mindfully watching myself, it is not a desire I am experiencing, or a desire I encounter, presented by another person, or thing. It is thought prompted by the externalities to create the thinking, from memory, from the connections I have made in the mind through acculturation, education, and life in society. I am then thinking about this externality for what it offers…Continue
The inward revolution of millions is bringing about cultural change as evidenced by one of the world's richest men taking an unprecedented political lead for president. He's the independent loose cannon with bravado enough to suggest this country could oust 11 million undocumented aliens and their American born children. His hallmark would be to support mandatory sterilization, especially for those who deliver drug exposed babies or those who neglect their children. Eventually, the inward…Continue

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

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

It is an absolute perfection, and as it were divine, for a man to know how to enjoy his being loyally. We seek for other conditions because we understand not the use of ours; and go out of ourselves, not knowing what is abiding there.Michel de Montaigne, Essays What are the conditions de Montaigne seems to say are ignored in favor of a search for other conditions?Continue

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!

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" 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
