ENDING A LIFE LIVED IN CONFUSION
You know why our world is falling into dictatorship? We have no love in our hearts, and so we have no love in our society. We have conflict and war and pleasure and fear and worries and depressions, and self-interest and competition and desires and anxieties. The inner ground of thinking humanity stands on is not an enviable place to stand.
From low to high, rich to poor, enlightened to stupid, humanity lives and breathes every day of his life, in deep inward confusion. Are you aware of this? Or do you consider mankind intelligent, do you consider the mechanical growth of technological progress to be evidence of man’s superiority over life itself? Is knowledge the ascent of man?
Spend some time alone with yourself. Listen to your inner chatter, follow the course of the images and words which arise, the fears, the worries, the pleasures, the hurts, desires and pains.
Look at it all.
What brought this inner chaotic incessant movement to your life? You ever wonder this? If not, why not? Do you consider this to be the natural born psychological state for a human being?
Our minds have not been allowed to develop naturally.
Many men, from the corridors of history, to this day, have sought, and are seeking continuously, methods to control the minds of other human beings, to make the minds of the populace subservient and agreeable to the desires of traditional rulers.
This attempt arises from the fact that we all see ‘progress’ into a conceptual future from our own limited pasts, to be of utmost importance. The Jew, seeks the rise of the Jewish nation. The Muslim and Christian, the same. The American nation seeks its own global domination, which has held this world to ransom for many decades, and has brought countless suffering mothers to weep uncontrollable tears. Each nation, belief, ideological, class and political system, seeks to dominate every other. Every monarch seeks the continuity of his life of opulence garnished from the taking from the lives of others.
We have been educated into a background framework from which our daily thinking patterns arise. The identifiable traditional divisive movements educated into us colour and distort our view of the world, making relationship between historically oppositional aligned groups of people engaged in perpetual continuity, absolutely impossible to meet.
Of course, living this way - as we do, each of us now seeing a subtly different world, by virtue of the conceptual educated and self interested principles we carry within in the nature of our educated unquestioned thinking, denies any possibility of love. And so, we live in a loveless world.
Love is surely to look at life without and so free from any learned bias. To look freely, from any conceptual educated or accepted inner viewpoint. To look without any divisive conceptual ideology colouring and dividing against what is seen.
If I am a Muslim, I paint my entire life existence in my educated conceptual Muslim ideology. Christians are doing the same, Jews, the very same. Each one of us, engaged in an eye watering over four thousand two hundred divided traditional religious beliefs, is doing the very same. Every patriotic American, the same. A patriotic Brit, the very same. And any patriot from any of one hundred and ninety five divided nations, is doing exactly the same.
Rich people look at the world through an image of their own competitive superiority. An overinflated value of their worth, based on an aggressive accumulation of numbers printed out of thin air. Such is the level of illusion our lives are guided by. We divide in this world in every area, and division is the necessary arrangement for conflict and war to arise.
We are perhaps meeting now the reason why our race, (humanity), has always lived at war, and the reason appears very closely related to our habitual approach to life of meeting every day carrying a background of accepted psychological educated ideologies (traditional educated knowledge), informing us all of our divided conceptual place within the ranks and divisions of humanity.
How can there be love in such a divided world, in which every person and every group of people, holds ultimate concern for themselves? Can love for another and self-interest travel together? Or is love for another only truly possible, when I have lost every shred of concern for myself?
What is this 'myself' I carry such concern about?
This is interesting, for when I begin to describe what I think I am, I meet the same educated unquestioned principles accepted as a child. “I am British and Christian”, one may claim, “I am American and Evangelist” may come the cry of another, yet another will convincingly state, “I am an Israeli Jew”, or I am a Palestinian Muslim”. All educated principles. Is the understanding of what we are merely a matter of acceptance of the traditional characteristics of the land and people I have been born into?
All divisive educated principles, all accepted, all unquestioned, all becoming the inner psychological ground of living divisive continuity which has brought this world of humankind to unimaginable suffering over uncountable years.
All leading to an impossibility for the sum total of humanity to live in relationship, all, denying any sense of love.
How can you love another you have been educated to look upon as an enemy? How can you love what you do not even see? How can you see another, when you project your own ideas of you own moral or ideological or economic superiority, and ideas of the other’s lesser stature?
How can you love another, when your greatest concern in life, is yourself?
The ending of this inner gathered data, this brainwashed human consciousness, this societal insistence that my life security is found in an accepted divisive ideological construct and in accepting the written and often repeated historical insistences of a divided group of people, in conflict and battle with all others doing the same, only from differing educated ideological principles, may be the clearing of the ground for a seed of love to begin to grow.
There can surely be no love between conflicting educated ideologies we gain a sense of security in living our lives aligned towards, for these have divide mankind, now and forever, and a divided mankind, can know no love. Love is perhaps a 'holy' state, and the word ‘whole’ has deep etymological relationship to the word ‘holy’.
When all is cared for, the whole of mankind is cared for, and this perhaps, is love. Impossible to any mind seeking security in educated traditional psychological traditional divisions hostile to the lives of others, doing the same, but sheltering under a differing set of inner educated and accepted ideological conclusions.
When does a human being see life most clearly? How do we see life as it is?
Surely, we must deny what we think about life, to come to see it as it is? And we must look at life from a silent mind, for a mind constantly talking, is continuously carrying a living distraction. The inner chattering of our post education adult minds, prevents a holistic quality of meeting life presently, here and now, with the whole of the mind.
To pay attention to anything, we must surely be absolutely quiet? As long as I am inwardly distracted by a constantly flowing movement of inner words and images, which is educated and programmed human memory, how can I meet this world with complete awareness? It is perhaps this inability which makes seeing life as it is, all but impossible. And so we reinforce our divisive position. Lost to actual life as we have inevitably become, living within this inner movement of educated and remembered principles, ideas about life. Life becomes a continuity of the battle we have always known, and wars and the brutal violent deaths of our children on a battlefield becomes a constant chilling companion.
Can you put down your unquestioned, educated identifying conceptual principles you now gain a sense of security living within? Can the brain of a man be wiped clean of the background education and the acquired experiences, from which he projects his own limited and divisive understanding of the world?
This is perhaps important to investigate and to find out.
For without such a possibility, we live eternally divided, and we will eternally continue to kill each other in our perceived projected conceptual and educated learned divisive psychological states.
A totally silent mind, is empty of all movements of educated self.
Empty of all gathered memories, from life, and from a corrupting education. Empty of all self-interest. Thought has a place, it is not the central authority of our lives, for it is limited to our past experiences. Thought is knowledge, and knowledge is always fatally limited, (there is always more to know). And so thought is fragmentary in its nature, and divides us as people and in our divisions we have built this monstrously hostile to life society we all face this day.
How does one come to a silent mind?
How does a mind in perpetual motion of words and images, concepts, fears, desires and a sense of self interest and progressive becoming, how does such a mind become completely silent?
It watches itself.
It watches itself at work, it watches itself walking the dog, it watches itself driving the car, or sitting on the bus. Thought is always occupied, simply bring choiceless awareness to this inner movement of memory founded imagery, words, and symbols.
Never let a single thought pass you out with being aware of its content.
Such practice may sharpen the human brain to an awareness of its own inner movements rooted in educated societal historical divisive complexity. This inner movement is a great danger to our lives and to the continuity of our species, because this is the root of every human action, and this inner movement which drives every action we take and ever decision we make is currently working from an accepted view of traditional limitation, which divides one man’s life conceptually from another’s.
When danger is seen, conclusively and without argument, not as an opinion, or a conclusion, not accepted from another’s words, but actually seen, the human brain acts without any thought, it acts, to remove itself from the perceived danger. You jump from the path of a bus hurtling towards you in a street, without thought, this is the action of accurate vision.
We need awaken vision of our inner divisive psychologically educated bias so hostile and aggressively competitive against each other's learned approaches to life.
When we see the danger of how we are living, we will act. And this action, may release the brain from its automatic historical approach to life of meeting every day with such limitation and divisive educated illusions. This action, born from the awakening to the danger of the limited divisive psychological inner movement we have all been educated to cherish and find a sense of security in clinging onto, may be the only catalyst which brings the inner nature of the psychological educated structure of memory educated into us to revolution.
This activity, may bring an end to this divisive traditional approach to life.
Freed at last from such a divisive prejudicial self-interested approach to life, the human mind may at last, come to meet silence, and meet this Universe with all senses, fully awakened, and so no distracting inward chatter, colouring and distorting what is met by the senses.
In full view of the world, as it is, the same for every one of us, unobstructed by what we have been taught to think about what we see, we come to meet the immensity of an infinite Universe, and the crystal clear view of another human being, the very same life as my own - only when all self-interested divisive thinking removed, love may be found.
Love, is the missing element on this forsaken planet. We have religions and beliefs by the thousand, nations by the hundred, we have uncountable ideologies and political persuasions. And in spite of all of this, and perhaps because of all of this, we have never yet met the living quality of love.
A mind of love, will build a word of love. What else could?
A mind of clear vision, will decide on matters fairly and justly. Without bias arising from inner self interested learned prejudices A mind void of self, is capable of acting in the interests of another.
The mind we hold this day, is responsible for this broken, corrupted and complex world. This is surely what needs brought to revolution. Not the outer world, for the outer world is born from the actions of men, and the actions of men arise from this divided ground we all share - of traditionally divisive educated unquestioned thinking. Our thoughts arise greatly from what we have been told, and accepted, not from what we have come to understand.
Bring love into life.
Find out what it means to do so. And your life, and the lives of your children, and the lives of all of the future of humanity, may yet come to live in a sane world. Something humanity has never found, in his long journey living together, yet ever divided and in conflict, filled with such educated divisive principles of conceptual continuity, which deny any potential at all for true relationship, and for love.
Love is surely found, not in any journey towards this life blessing. Love is found, in the ending of what you are this day. A death is needed to be met. The ending of what love is not, is perhaps the awakening of the truth - of a life lived in love.
Hello to all, I am a 60 year old man who has spent the best part of his life studying the teachings of J.Krishnamurti. My name is Henryk. I am rather unimportant, although what I talk about on these pages, has great importance. Particularly today, in this dark world, led by men of infinite wealth, unfortunately without the intelligence to match. My work here stands on the shoulders of that of J.Krishnamurti. Without this man's passion and great life understanding, this website would never have existed. His effect on my own life has been immeasurable. A man of infinite vision and wisdom, who spent over 60 years of his life travelling the world and discussing life and societal problems. Krishnamurti passed away in the 1980s. Anyone interested in the nature of discussion in the content of this site, will likely find great interest in the work of Krishnamurti. Hundreds of videos may be found on YouTube. There is a link above dedicated to his work to which new content is planned to be regularly added. The beauty of truth in life, is that it is identical for each one of us. Truth is the place we all come to meet in unity. And truth belongs to no man. Only pointless opinions, divisive, traditional, educated into and gathered by us, may be claimed as ownership. The change in our world so desperately needed this day, is within us, not external to our lives. All man's actions begin in the area of human thinking, it is this needs understood and brought to revolution. Thanks for taking the time to visit, a few posts are being added to the site weekly at the moment, when I find time. If you would like to support the work here, you can do so from the price of a cup of coffee each month, contributors are invited to online discussions. If you would like to contribute, our Patreon page may be found at the following address: www.patreon.com/rainbow_warriors.
