Thanks for posting this Ken. There is obviously an issue here. Luckily we have many audio and video recordings where we can be in no doubt about what K said. In the video I posted to start this thread, we can listen to K saying the sentence "One has to be tremendously aware of every movement of thought". The words obviously convey an important message but the way he says them also transmits passion and urgency and is surely an important part of what he is communicating here.

I am glad that you shared this valuable video. K is talking about being free from thought and the self . How many of us in this forums want to be free? Very few, most people are satisfy with thought and the self with its anxiety and fears. It keeps them occupied. What k suggests is a 180 degree change in our behavior. Not to be self- concerned all the time like others.

Goodman I don't know why you feel qualified to speak for the rest of us on this forum. Isn't it enough to understand what K pointed out for yourself without worrying about what the rest of us are doing?
