I wnted to ask this question to you both. when the wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve, then friends recognised their friendships. A good sign was placed on their speech. gb

Topic: humor in JKs speeches

let me quote one from memory. it is a parable I think from the last talk. Three friends went to Himalayas for doing meditation. first one after a year said ' it is going to rain'. the second one after another year said, ' it appears like that. the third one after one more year said ,' will you keep quiet..... Some of the forums end abruptly like this i think it is due to the limitations of discussion... gb

Topic: Living without thought

have you tried playing chess without thinking..... just try.

It is not now, nor is It tomorrow; who knoweth that which is Supreme and Wonderful? It has motion and action in the consciousness of another, but when It is approached by the thought, It vanishes.gb

Topic: communication

when the wise ones fashioned speech , sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve, then friends recognised their friendships. A good sign was placed on their speech. But practical thoughts do have their right place. It is not necessary to completely wipe out the thoughts, or just be aware they are deadly in relationship. gb

Topic: Mankind needs freedom ; With or without the help of K.

One can see many people very clear in their perception without the need of Jk and if you watch many of their clarity will not be holistic. if they are not completely clear, it is also obvious they are also not completely free.This is one thing. Only those people at least from my experience who face lot of unsolvable problem like handicap etc.. with the fear of insecurity find easily the grasp of JK, or those people who see the acute danger for existence of humanity. Inthat process JK's teachings make them holistically clear. however the opposite of false is not completely true. for example thoughts do have its practical place.

Topic: Mankind needs freedom ; With or without the help of K.

But those who really desire to understand, who are looking to find that which is eternal, without beginning and without an end, will walk together with a greater intensity, will be a danger to everything that is unessential, to unrealities, to shadows. And they will concentrate, they will become the flame, because they understand. Such a body we must create, and that is my purpose. Because of that real understanding there will be true friendship. Because of that true friendship - which you do not seem to know - there will be real cooperation on the part of each one. And this not because of authority, not because of salvation, not because of immolation for a cause, but because you really understand, and hence are capable of living in the eternal. This is a greater thing than all pleasure, than all sacrifice.

If there are only five people who will listen, who will live, who have their faces turned towards eternity, it will be sufficient

Topic: 2nd One-Liner

Earnestness must be tempered with the swift play of spontaneity... I dont know if i have spelt correctly...In zen or some scholl the master used to ask questions ,like What was your face before you were born? If two hands make sound what is the sound of other hand so that the nonconceptual awareness of reality can be realzed. Like this cant we share on our own poems and related new activities. In the long run all the forums going to merge and since i feel it iam not taking very much care to discuss on a particular topic.If it is inconvenient i regret, however i will try to be relevent with the particular topic. gb

Topic: What factors prevent people from understanding JK?

Whenever we enjoy some thing beautiful, we always feel to share it with some one we love. It must be a natural instinct like I think when some one is in trouble we extend our hands for help. when some people if they change their attitude we feel how wonderful it is. In spite of it when i see somuch in it and the other if they dont understand what could be the reason, I have always wondered. Shall we discuss those factors which prevent people from understanding JK.

All these existed even at that time... and for all this you want the conflict to continue...

Will any one help me to locate Poems and parables by JK? gb
