Immeasurable enchantment ~ from Krishnamurti’s Notebook

"28th Yesterday we were walking along the favourite road beside the noisy stream, in the narrow valley of dark pine trees, fields with flowers and in the distance the massive snow-covered covered mountain and a waterfall.

To look is important ~ from Krishnamurti’s Notebook

"To look is important. We look to immediate things and out of immediate necessities to the future, coloured by the past. Our seeing is very limited and our eyes are accustomed to near things.

What is thought?

(Animals sense in humans the mood produced by a certain thought). Sages hold the entire human psyche (manifested as "the world") in the palm of their hand, constantly observing … Continue reading What is thought?

Which of the two, predictable or unpredictable, offers more joy? ~ a note written in the spirit of Krishnamurti

Listening and reading Krishnamurti awakes questions. Could the human psyche become somewhat natural? Could it be more like Life is? Could human and Nature become friends? We all declare we love nature, but have we really taken time to get to know it? To understand it in its whole complexity?

Just look ~ “But you see, most of us have not the patience earnestly and consistently to pursue this inquiry” ~ by Krishnamurti

Questioner: What is intelligence? Krishnamurti: Let us go into the question very slowly, patiently, and find out. To find out is not to come to a conclusion. I don't know if you see the difference. The moment you come to a conclusion as to what intelligence is, you cease to be intelligent. That is what … Continue reading Just look ~ “But you see, most of us have not the patience earnestly and consistently to pursue this inquiry” ~ by Krishnamurti
