Re: Krishnamurty-inspired off-topic posts

It does seem to be a categorical expression for all people. I could understand people not agreeing with or believing this. But, when you see someone who is living without stress and describing the way they function, over time you begin to work through all the objections one has to someone saying th...

Re: Krishnamurty-inspired off-topic posts

I think that UG would be standing more closely to the truth if he had said "all it took for me was a fraction of a second of the break of my perception of continuity and the whole thing seemed to collapse, the end of my dream of existence. For me it seems that no activity of this world-mind or thou...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

I guess this is the problem for all of us. There are thousands of self-proclaimed awakened people out there, and it is clearly not possible to investigate them all... Which is why all these self-proclaimed awakened people should be challenged to take eachother on, to confront eachother, to eliminat...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

It remind me off the actual freedom movement led by guy named Richard, who is similar. http://www.actualfreedom.com.au/ It is possible to live in this modern era, freed from out-dated Philosophy and Psychiatry, challenging every Spiritual and Metaphysical tenet and surpassing any of the Altered Sta...

Re: Krishnamurty-inspired off-topic posts

U.G. said many times that all it takes is a fraction of a second of the break of this continuity and the whole thing collapses, the end of the dream of existence. However, the caveat he states is that no activity of this world-mind or thought structure can ever bring this about. No amount of energy...

Re: Krishnamurty-inspired off-topic posts

Very sorry for the delay, been a busy few weeks. The only way that it is possible to understand my statement, 'in a sense, there are only wrong views', is to let go of all your thinking and discover the nature of mind, not the content of it. Nature of mind is not the most fundamental position in re...

Re: Dangers of Meditation

Inside is outside , and meditation puts you into a position where you can see this clearly, and with time and so on, maybe find resting peace in the way it is Best! It may be nothing more than a drug to help make you more insensitive and then call it tranquility. :shrug: I don't think peace has any...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

I think your own discernment falls short. UG didn't tell to drop practices. Perhaps your reading falls short. I said nothing about him telling people to drop practices. He never gave any practice. He gives practices by what he says. Its not spelled out onto a paper. You are also doing same, you hav...

Re: Dangers of Meditation

Now if this is the case, then wouldn't it make the 'idle mind-devil's workshop' saying true? If so, why bother with meditation when it's only going to bring out the worst from inside of you? Inside is outside , and meditation puts you into a position where you can see this clearly, and with time an...

Re: On U.G. Krishnamurti:The Dharma Seals Of A Non-Buddhist

All of us have the tendency to state our experience as mine . There has been and is, an activity of identification that tells us what we experience is ours, mine . We do this with our thoughts, feelings, and even objects. When we are able to learn the name of objects, we are also learning that they...

Re: Is consciousness the problem

Fortunately it is possible to practice using the phenomenological approach, which means we are only concerned with the phenomena actually experienced via the sense bases. But you are still within the subject/object dichotomy which is mental. Phenomenon do not exist in the absolute sense. How can yo...
