Living without 'pshycological time'
Living without the past
There is no "should be' . life goes through on the basis of 'what is'
just to be conscious with your thaught, not control, nor suppressed, just aware
that is revolution, but at the same time there is no end point. not to gain anything, awarness without volition is the main mantra of Krishnamurthy.

Meditation is not any process to healing, to gain or to reach a desied state( joy, bliss or whatever) meditation is to living from moment to moment without prejudices, without burden of past knowledge or past action or postmortem.

we can not realise(?) truth by following any sect, any organisation or beliving any thing,
truth is pathless land.

The man; clear, concise description of the world outside and the world inside.

The directive; learn to look at yourself without my word interfering.

Learn; the art of listening; the art of seeing; the art of conveying.

The joy; seeing things as they are.

The beauty; living life without [internal] conflict.

K is about the network of thought, that is consciousness, that is the psychological time ...he is about ending of time, ending of suffering, about true freedom and right action.

Krishnamurti himself was more humane than many of us thinks, his teaching was humane, realistic and uncompromising look of life and world. Only possible for the furute of mankind.

Radical change. Facing who and what I am.

There is perhaps actually nobody craving and only craving itself moving in the mind. Is consciousness bound to crave and so literally bound to craving? Or does attention act without time or identity, to shift the pattern, dissolve the craving and free the mind?

Does this free mind see differently? Is it now open to the truth of consciousness which is one, only ever 'present', and universal? This new mind realises a responsibility to clean and keep consciousness clean. Just like the planet.

My life is my mind - although it isn't mine - and all this is only ever up to "me".

A condition of listening, being aware, permits the Ultimate to manifest.

The flame of intelligence, continually encroached upon around its edges by the conditioned and conditioning greyness of life, eager at every turn, at every moment (if eager is the correct word for there is no collective 'will' as such) to snuff out the light that is disturbing the sleep of the slumbering masses. Even he succumbed at times but heh, he was only human after all.

Open your eyes to see how monstrous is the world of which you are a part. Get out of it and get out fast. Once you reach to the other shore, you can come back, if you wish, to help your loved ones. Clean your house and find the Other - call it Love, or the Sacred, or whatever: the name doesn't matter. But you got to find It; otherwise, there is no redemption.

Difficult question, how could I confine the immensity in just a few words? Although he was a human being his manifistation was beyond any possible description, you cannot place him in a single category as a philosopher or mistic, or whatever, even though this categorizations are used to get an approach to him in terms of what ordinary mind knows. Not using the word ordinary in any despective way.

I feel he was very much a living Christ, at least in his early years. Yet, like Christ, I think his impact on the world was not all that good. Certainly there is no one in these days that I know of who has a deep, working understanding of either of them.

Freedom and Self understanding through my attention to Living and Seeing clearly what is, each moment and acting accordingly, free the of the influence of psychological memory/thoughts, conditioning, preconceived ideas agendas or judgments. Then, having the attentive awareness to see whatever?....

I think he pointed to the obvious, to the conditioned fragmentation that exists in ourselves and outwardly in society and how this created tremendous conflict. All he asked was for people to look at this, to actually see, to have an insight in the moment in how this is being habitually carried out and in this moment to not act on it. As he said "inaction is the highest form of action."
As I said before and as I said to Krishnamurti in a letter to him that got me hired as he Head Master of the Oak Grove School that I am, "in all due respect" not interested in him but in only to what he is pointing to that anyone can see for themselves. Neither am I interested in "His" or The Teachings" that some people are now referring to when they speak of him. Either one can see conditioning as a fact in one''s life and in the world, which seems so obvious, or one can't. In other words, one can't see through Krishnamurit's eyes.

Krishnamurti is about teaching others to live in touch with life, that attention represents the actual self and that when one's attention shifts from the perception of one's senses to what one thinks about the perception of one's senses then they have taken the action that removes one from being in touch with life.
