K: Consciousness (aka : Mind ?) is ( encompassing ) the totality of life. Not only my life, your life, but the life of the animal, the tree; the totality of all life.

PJ : You are using now this word 'consciousness' very differently to what you said in the early 1950s.

K: Yes, I am moving away from what I had said earlier...

From john Raica

Re-defining some of K's ( holistic) terminology so that needless further confusion did not arise amongst his earnest listeners.

One Ego has spoken again. Instead of questioning others about what they know or don't know question yourself. You have no way of knowing what others know. Your above statement was a typically arrogant and ignorant statement that we have come to expect from you.

It's another indication that you have no idea what K was talking about when you recently referred to "beginners" here on the K forum. "Beginners" implies time and as K very frequently pointed out time has nothing to do with understanding our conditioning and so much more. How many times has K pointed this out and you still don't get it?

Time is thought. You are so clueless. You think you know what K was pointing out but you don't even understand the basic point he made about time. You're an embarrassment to yourself and a stifling influence on this forum. You and your ignorance have essentially shut this part of the Kinfonet down. Are you proud of yourself for that?

words in themselves always remain worthless as long as they are not looked through and the true meaning is revealed!

as long as ones self, my self, your self or anyone elses is involved,
this meaning will not produce any action.

Truth will unfold itself to those who enquire their own actions.

that makes sense, because such someone only sees and hear the self ! ;-()

That is a very good point you made above, Wim. It is revealing that One Ego sees himself as an entertainer or knowledgeable spokesperson for what K pointed out. This forum is for discussions of what K pointed out not attempts to make authoritative pronouncements as One Self so often does. There is no authority on what K pointed out. You either understand some or all of it or you don't.

One Self's ridged belief that only he knows has, effectively, destroyed this particular part of the forum. As I have been pointing out for a few weeks.

But you think taking what I write and removing your name and replacing that with my name or different pronouns does work? Who do you think you are fooling? You apparently aren't intelligent to write your own statements. You have to change mine. You didn't make it very far in school did you?

The meaning of a word is another word. Truth is not in words unless one is superstitious and imagine that.
And wim do you think that we have anything in common to discuss in here or jack has asked you to help him in being a bully in here? If it is the second case I feel sorry for you. But if we have something in common to discuss then we can. I think it is time to grow up and stop deluding in here. Let jack do his bulling. Life will teach him back if it hasn't yet.

Jack started bulling first when I said the fact that Krishnamurti said " homosexuals create problems in the world" . Now it is clear that jack creates problems in the world.
