Read Reflections on the Self ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Described by the Dalai Lama as one of the greatest thinkers of the age Jiddu Krishnamurti has influenced millions throughout the twentieth century including such notables as Joseph Campbell Dr Jonas Salk Aldous Huxley Van Morrison Bertrand Russell Henry Miller and Bruce Lee and his work continues to inspire even a decade after his death Born of middle class Brahmin parents in 1895 Krishnamurti was recognized at age fourteen by Theosophists Annie Besant and CW Leadbeater as the anticipated world teacher and proclaimed to be the vehicle for the reincarnation of Christ in the West and of Buddha in the East In 1929 he repudiated these claims and traveled the world sharing his. This book is as good a place as any to start reading Krishnamurti covering a range of topics about the human condition dealing with such things as fear loneliness anger and freedom to name a few I found the chapter on guilt particularly insightful but having said that the chapters are all insightful and there is much that can be taken away from this book that could prove useful to a person in their daily living as indeed all of K s writings If I was to take one uote from this book that gave me pause for thought it is this Sirs if you are listening and are not acting it is like a man who is always tilling but never sowing It is better not to listen to a truth than to listen without acting for then it becomes a poison Lost Girl you are listening and are not acting it is like a man who is always tilling but never sowing It is better not to listen to a truth than to listen without acting for then it becomes a poison

Read Reflections on the Self ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Philosophical insights and establishing schools and foundationsBecause Krishnamurti had no interest in presenting theories his thought is far removed from academic philosophy in the analytic tradition yet his insights remain extremely relevant to contemporary philosophical theories and to people who are passionately interested in understanding themselves and the world Rather than a theorist Krishnamurti was a seer and a teacher He saw inherently distorting psychological structures that bring about a division in every person's consciousness between the observer and the observed This division he believed is a potent source of conflict both internally for the individual and t. The introduction to the book suggests Krishnamurti s essence is in line with Socrates in that he fervently seeks to turn existing paradigms on their heads and I am in agreement In these commentaries he espouses the ultimate guru of no gurus and lauds the method of no method In a sense it felt like the book was restating the same over and over but therein was included a powerful lucid reuest for the aspirant to simply uietly and curiously probe fear itself what IS it exactly Easier said than done for most because the intimidating objectssubjects of fear in our lives play an effective goalie position keeping us from examining the Real Anatomy of fear ie when we say I am afraid such a simple seeming statement is often charged with a lot of obscuring debris but the undeniable fact remains that the words we use to describe our situation never actually fully describe our Actual Situation So what is the Actual Situation of fear and mental distressI do not know if I am in agreement with what seems like JK s maverick condemnation of teacher text and tradition but it is clear that he offers a powerful and important voice of wisdom He is a well read product of culture who attained samadhi but speaks in circles using plain language in a way that seems to shoo people away from books and formal meditation practices and really the whole project If there are lineages with millennia of mind science commentary that can lead one to Being Consciousness Bliss where is the bugbearHis persona does seem caught up in a paradox of having to say Listen closely I have nothing to say So sometimes the guru will say I am not guru and become a walking talking Treachery of Images la Ren Magritte

I maintain that Truth is a pathless land and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever by any religion by any sect That is my point of view and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally Truth being limitless unconditioned unapproachable by any path whatsoever cannot be organized nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path You will probably form other Orders you will continue to belong to other organizations searching for truth If an organization be created for this purpose it becomes a crutch a weakness a bondage and must cripple the individual and prevent him from growing from establishing his uniueness which lies in the discovery for himself of that absolute unconditioned truth Because I am free unconditioned whole not the part not the relative but the whole truth that is eternal I desire those who seek to understand me to be free not to follow me not to make out of me a cage which will become a religion a sect I have now decided to disband the Order as I happen to be its Head You can form other organizations and expect someone else With that I am not concerned nor with creating new cages new decorations for those cages My only concern is to set men absolutely unconditionally freeYou can only live truly happily with the world when you are not of the world which means you don t give wrong values to the things in the world This can happen only when you understand yourself the giver of wrong valuesIt is like a stupid man trying to renounce stupidity He will still be stupid he may try to become clever but he will remain stupid But if he understood what stupidity is that is himself surely then he would reach great heights Then he would have wisdom It is not by renouncing that you can find reality By renouncing you escape into illusion you do not discover that which is true
