a fabricated center

My Comment:

There must be a center as “I”, the “me”  in order to take delivery of receiving. The “me” is the construct that has been fabricated by consciousness and then taken to be a fact. Actually it is not. The “me” wants to secure its existence by storing all impressions in memory, holding them in order to analyze what happened so as to prepare for what might happen in the “future”.  Continue reading

Krishnamurti:

It was a beautiful day, a cloudless day, a day of shadows and light; after the heavy rains the sun shone in a clear, limpid blue sky. The mountains, with their snow, were very close, one could almost touch them; they stood out sharply against the sky. The bright brilliant meadows were sparkling in the sun, every blade of grass did a dance of its own and the leaves were heavier in their movement. Continue reading

Krishnamurti:

Look beyond the mountain; in that look are the nearby houses, the meadows, the shapely hills and the mountains themselves; when you drive a car, you look well ahead, three hundred yards or more; that look takes in the side roads, that car that is parked, the boy that is crossing and the lorry that’s coming towards you, but if you merely watched the car ahead of you, you would have an accident. The distant look includes the near but looking at what is near does not include the distant.

My Comment:

It is a process of seeing the mental formations and seeing how repetitive and ‘one-dimensional’ they are. They lack real depth because they are always sourced from memory, which consists of mere impressions of the movement of creation that once was, but is now no more. Now is always a movement of energy that never was before. The mind has the function of seeking and finding security for itself, and to this aim it records the present movement of Life and believes that it has captured aliveness, but that is always self-deception. As this self-deception, this delusion, is uncovered it loses all power. It stands as the Emperor with no clothes. Then the game is up and the tables have irreversibly turned in favor of Awareness of Reality. This Awareness, which has nothing at all in common with the space of mentation, pervades our life with an understanding that is not of words or concepts. Trusting this new understanding is then where we must put our attention. Continue reading

Krishnamurti from his notebook:

It had been a beautiful morning, full of sunshine and shadows; the garden in the nearby hotel was full of colours, all colours and they were so bright and the grass so green that the hurt the eye and the heart. And the mountains beyond were glistening with a freshness and a sharpness, washed by the morning dew. It was an enchanting morning and there was beauty everywhere; over the narrow bridge, across the stream, up a path into the wood, where the sunshine was playing with the leaves; they were trembling and their shadows moved; they were common plants but they outdid in their greenness and freshness all the trees that soared up to the blue skies.  You could only wonder at all this delight, at the extravagance, at the trembling; you could not but be amazed at the quiet dignity of every tree and plant and at the endless joy of those black squirrels, with long, bushy tails. The waters of the stream were clear and sparkling in the sun that came through the leaves. It was damp in the wood and pleasant. Continue reading

a movement that has no being – II

“Meditation is this attention in which there is an awareness, without choice, of the movement of all things, the cawing of the crows, the electric saw ripping through the wood, the trembling of leaves, the noisy stream, a boy calling, the feelings, the motives, the thoughts chasing each other and going deeper, the awareness of total consciousness. And in this attention, time as yesterday pursuing into the space of tomorrow and the twisting and turning of consciousness has become quiet and still.

My Comments:

Below are some statements by Krishnamurti about the quality of the awareness of essence. Clearly these are not statements that can be understood with the intellect. To ponder “a movement that has no being” one must let go of all views of physics etc. One must be sensitive to a realm of perception that is not of physical sense organs. In the other statements we find wording that invites us to sense and “feel” a quality that “has no relationship with anything” and so it is untouched and untouchable. Enjoy! Continue reading

My Comment:
The point that Krishnamurti makes here about what he means by “feeling” is seminal and can open one up to the quality of the “essence” as he often calls it. It is there when there is no ‘experiencer’. Enjoy!

Krishnamurti’s Notebook:

The moon was in the clouds but the mountains and the
dark hills were clear and there was a great stillness about them.
There was a large star just hanging over a wooded hill and the only
noise that came out of the valley was the mounta1n stream as it
rushed over rocks. Everything was asleep save the distant village
but its sound didn’t come as high up as this. The noise of the stream
soon faded; it was there but it didn’t fill the valley. There was no
breeze and the trees were motionless; there was the light of the pale
moon on the scattered roofs and everything was still, even the pale
shadows. Continue reading
