finding the meaning in life
Where might one find the meaning in life?
Our societies, from the earliest of school days, have pushed into our brains that the meaning of life, is to achieve. Or to believe in what we have been told. To follow authority and compete against each other. To become a success. And the vast majority of us have accepted this as an authentic approach to life.
What if they got it wrong?
Let’s question a little.
What is involved in becoming? A lot more than first appears to be the case. In becoming, I am living for the glory of a future projected state. In becoming, my life energies are centred on my own life predominately, and perhaps aligned towards the lives of those closest to me. In becoming, in achievement, I must live my life on a train track of continual progression, a psychological movement building upon, and growing the same movement, into a conceptual future.
My life, becomes limited, to a narrow groove.
What are the implications of living life within this educated and long standing traditionally fashioned approach?
In living for the arrival of future conquests, my relationship to this present moment dims. I become predominately focussed inwardly, in the world of concentrated repetitive human consciousness, for here, is the ground of all conceptual life, words and images and the future, is an image, the only true time to life, is found in this present moment.
I become self-interested to the extreme in nature, my life becomes centred around an inner feeling of what I am, on inner words and images, which is of the same quality of that which I carry from the past, and that which I ever continue, seeking to grow, into my conceptual future. I lose relationship to others, for relationship is only found here and now, the aiming towards a future is an isolated and solitary journey, one we have all been brainwashed to unquestioningly participate within, and one which out of necessity, denies our ability to come together in relationship in this present moment, the ground of all universal creation, and the only true time which ever has existed.
Is there an alternative?
And the moving away from this conceptual conditioned scholastically educated approach to life, may be nothing other than the very salvation of our race.
Being, is the alternative to becoming, but for a state of 'being' to come into being, the state of becoming, necessarily, must come to an end.
Being, is living now, in this present moment, uncaring for the concept of a future. In being, we meet each other, and this is the joy and ecstasy of actual relationship. In being, we come to meet the sacred quality of life, for all life is found here and now, the living quality of this universe, does not live within the conceptual time of a self-projected future, neither does it exist in the dead remembered past that future is conceived from, in the educated process of 'becoming'.
Seeking success, is the death of all which is true to life.
How does one move from the current brainwashed and destructive psychological state of mankind to one of living in harmony with each other, in harmony with nature and in harmony with the loving beauty of the sacred quality of this universe? One must come to completely understand, and negate the inner psychological prison cell our society has placed our minds within by virtue of twelve years of mandated memorising, seeking the top position in a class in competition against our peers, under the watchful eye of an authority figure in a teacher.
The root of this problem is within, there is little point to attempt to change our outer world this day, of such magnificent transparent sickness, blindness and corruption. One must look within, to begin any change worthwhile, for the inner movements of human consciousness are the movements which precede every human action. One must change at the root, for any lasting and meaningful effect. And when we look within, we find a world as conflicted and confused as the world without.
A duality is required for all conflict, a conflict requires two oppositional energies, what are these energies which bring human consciousness to conflict, within each member of our race inwardly, and externally, between opposing members? The root of all of our conflicts, inner and outer, may be found in the psychological division, between the movement of thinking and the educated psychological unquestioned movement of a conceptual observer to the thinking mind.
Thought is fleeting, but the programming nature of what passed as 'education' in all our lives, has created a feeling of a permanent entity within thought, an observer to thought, a thinker of thoughts, identified to and by the given birth name. This is totally illusory in actual nature, but please, do not take my word for a single thing.
Watch your inner world and establish for yourself if what I am saying is true or false.
A miracle may happen if you can do this.
But be warned, one needs a certain tenacity to come to any understanding of one’s own conceptual inner world, the inner consciousness of humanity is a divided and conflicted place, and so one can expect this journey to be somewhat arduous. But if your heart holds the breath of a true pioneer in this life, more than the sheep like nature of so many followers, then you will, through your own endeavours, come to find the truth or falseness of what is being stated here.
Whatever the case, matters not one iota, for you will, summoning your energy, climbing your own mountain, come to an understanding of what you are. The words here are mere pointers, of the nature of a street sign, many signs in life can point in a wrong direction, and so one must test the words, never accepting a thing.
And when, perhaps after some difficulty, for not all paths facilitate easy walking, you come to the top of the mountain you have climbed, here you can take in the actual view, and at this point, you can verify if the signpost you followed was pointing in the direction it stated or not.
Whatever the case, at this moment in time, it is rather irrelevant, for you will have come to an understanding of your own complex human consciousness. And in doing so you will have come to an understanding of your life. And the street sign you have followed, will at this point seem to have so little value.
Our human educated divisive minds build this world and we are non-understanding of our minds, as we are non-understanding of the complex world around us, which human consciousness has been responsible for building. A change, is so obviously needs in our outer world and societies, a change which is only possible if that which built them, which is human thought, itself undergoes a change.
That change, is complete understanding of what we are. From here, actions of understanding will obviously follow, leading to a world of understanding, and you, will have been responsible for the dawning of a new age for mankind. Or the existence of mankind will come to an end, victim of his own lack of understanding of his own inner nature.
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.
