IN DEATH, A REBIRTH IS FOUND
Have you ever taken any time to investigate your inner psychological nature?
I don’t mean by reading a psychology book, by listening to a psychologist or psychiatrist, or by studying a College or University course. I mean, by looking directly at the moment by moment functionality of what you call your ‘mind’. If you do so, what do you see?
An inner world in constant movement, an incessant flow of words and images, in constant occupation.
Of course, this is what we have endearingly come to call our human consciousness. Thought, in non-stop incessant activity. Have ever wondered about this inner area of your life? How it got there, where the energy for its incessant continuous activity arrives from?
This inner self, this human ego, this movement in human knowledge, (thoughts), recorded past events and incidents, concepts and educated ideologies is an area as a race we have very little understanding of.
Does that not seem a strange fact to you?
This very ground of our inner nature, what makes ‘me’, ‘me’, is an inner movement which we have little understanding of the functionality of? We seek to understand all other things, yet what we are, we remain greatly ignorant towards.
We would be lost in life without thoughts. Thoughts provide us our way home; thoughts allow us to repetitively engage in skilled or unskilled labour. Thoughts are needed to play a musical instrument, to put into action any skill previously learned. To be able to drive a vehicle or to even be able to talk a language, thought is indispensable. Thought, is memory. And memory, has a valid and correct place in life. Memory, is remembered information from the past.
The usefulness of memory is to remember things.
Remember our way home, remember how to drive a car. Here, thought has its place of immense value. We meet a task in life, and thought is there to guide us into how we complete the task with maximum efficiency, reliant on past meetings of similar issues of a similar nature. Thought is wonderful, when thought is applied in an appropriate direction, in its right place.
There are, however, as we all know only too well, (unless we are completely asleep), other sides to this inner movement, to this incessant movement of human knowledge. Thought creates fear. Thought builds a sense of illusory time, from a remembered past now dead and gone, to a projected future which bears no relationship to the world we meet in front of our eyes. Thought creates anxieties and depressions and worries and problems. Thought desires what it does not have, and fears the loss of what it does have. Thought is forever seeking greater pleasures in life. And pleasures are remembered from the past. Thought also carries innumerable past hurts and pains.
Thought has built an inner conceptual self within us, knowledge based, past remembered, which divides our lives from all others. Thought finds security in living within limited divisive educated accepted concepts. Thought is divisive between us, as each of us has endured differing past experiences, and so thought leads us into every conflict and every war. Our divisive knowledge, from which arises our thinking, ever seeking continuity, conflicts and wars with others doing the same, although, from a differing bank of past learned and educated experiences. Some of us think as Christians, some as Muslims, some as Jews, some as Palestinians. Some as Americans, some Brits, some Russians, some Chinese. All, indoctrinated accepted ideologies. Few, are those among us, who have come to our own found wisdom in life. Few of us stand on the ground of our own life understanding.
There would appear to be two sides to our thinking. A rational, useful place and a mode of operation which enhances and brings great quality to life and a destructive side, which darkens our days with fear, dims our awareness of where we are and of what we are and brings our lives to great disharmony, within our inner psychological carried state, and between each other, when these inner divisive psychological states come to conflict.
Is thought, which is the movement of memory, which is knowledge, which is the movement of past remembered information gleaned from limited life experiences and a divisive education, a suitably qualified approach to chart our entire life direction? Is the past remembered, an appropriate source of wisdom to light our present day and all present days to come?
This is how we live.
Our pasts, our thinking, our knowledge, is driving our present day. And as our future begins in this present moment, our past is driving our future also. We decide on our planned course through life based on the deliberations of our past stored knowledge. And so we are caught in a constant modified repetition of the past. Is this living? Is life to be found in a modified continuity of what came before? Is life to be found in what is over and dead?
Why do we look for the living in the continuity of what has already died?
We were educated to this.
We were educated to live in a constant state of memorising when we were too young to question and too naïve to understand the danger. Twelve years spent in memory set every adult brain up to living and finding security within this patterned repetitive approach to life, an educated approach finding security in the remembrances and continuity of things past, dead, and over.
This habitual, mechanical, automatic and hijacked societal functioning of human memory, has led us into a great many destructive illusions. It has brought our lives to deep isolated self-interest, it has led our race into great repetitive conflict, as we are each educated into different knowledge based compartments. It has divided our people, (humanity), into living tribally, as patriots of divided, self-interested and so battling nations. It has divided us in our religious beliefs.
And it has removed us from any first hand self found understanding of our lives.
Perhaps the greatest injury is that this inner movement has removed from our lives the ability to meet one another in direct relationship, removed from the distortion of what we think about each other and to meet love and the quality of the sacred in life. For us, the sacred is a matter of belief. To a man or woman truly awake, the sacred is what his life or her life actually is.
Religion is no matter of mere belief, which is only to add to divisive thinking. Educated religious concepts divide one man from another, and so are no unifying force in the lives of man. Religion is the flowering of a mans dedicated pursuit into the understanding of his own life. Religion, revolutionises the heart and mind of a man, and is a matter as much of destruction as creation, for that which came before need end, for a caring heart to find its place. A man need be born again, to enter the kingdom. A death need take place, that the birth of the new, may be met. The new, is the creative, the source of love.
A mind full of and constantly occupied by inner repetitive movements of words and images, so called 'sacred' or otherwise, constantly occupied by inner symbols, has no connection to the true sacred quality of life, for the sacred and loving, living and dying quality of that which life actually is, the creative energy, the very movement of this universe, has little relationship indeed, to its past. And thought, is recorded past knowledge.
As incomplete in nature as this Universe is whole. And so 'holy'.
The Universe, holds no divisive patterns of memory. Limited past experiences, are not the driving force of this universe. The present moment, is where creation is found. And love, is a part of creation.
And love is found in death, for that which continues, has lost the blessing of the new.
Life and death, to this universe are one movement, mankind has divided the two. As this Universe lives, it dies, it carries nothing over in continuity, and so is ever complete, within itself. It is neither travelling anywhere other than it is, nor is it founded on past remembered experiences.
This is the tormented life of man. Enslaved to a life lived in becoming, founded from the old.
The past and the present cannot coexist, and mankind lives in the past, reflected in every single inner conceptual psychological movement which divides our life experiences, one from every other.
Everything of greatest value has been lost to our race. And all because of one evolutionary mistake. We have evolved to value the continuity of our divisive traditional and educated heritage over and above the meeting of our lives in deep relationship and connection to this very moment.
We are living on our thinking, and our thinking is divisive between us, and divided within itself. We have been educated to accept what to think, never to question, and we do so diligently, we have never been educated to investigate, explore and come to a total understanding of this inner area of human consciousness, and so a total understanding of our lives themselves, as we presently live them.
Our past, which our thinking is born from, is an automatic movement in our lives. You can neither cease thinking, nor choose in which direction thought meanders. And this inner societal conditioned inner movement in all of our educated and traditional brains, manifesting in every inner word and image, is what divides us in life, and leads us to war.
This is quite a problem.
One which perhaps may only be solved in the total and complete understanding of our inner psychological lives for and by ourselves.
This, is the root place of our lives where we divide.
Putting thought in its right place. Coming to the sacred of life. Ceasing to make anything 'better', which is a continuity of what came before. What came before, needs to end, not be made 'better'. Arriving now, and living, in the good. Living and dying, in the creative, loving moment of this universe, seeking nothing, being nothing, becoming nothing.
We got it all wrong, it is not the accumulation and continuity of what we have previously been which brings our life to security. It is the ending of all accumulation, the ending of becoming, the ending of time, and the denial of all continuity.
In death, a rebirth is found.
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.
