LIFE IS COMPLETE
When you ask anyone the question, who are you? They will likely answer with a name. And you are, that name, as you live today. A few words. You think yourself born however many years ago. However many years have passed since birth. “I” am 16, 35, 70, or 100. "I" am John, Mary, Peter, or Jane. I am a man or a woman. I am an electrician, or a politician, or a banker, or a welder. Or a corrupt politician.
A patriot, religious, rich or poor, devastated or elated, depressed or enthusiastic.
What is the I which hides behind all of these things it proclaims to be? What makes the 'I' which states it is anything at all?
I am good. He is bad. I am righteous, a saint. He is profane and ignorant.
I know things. I know you, if I know you. What does it mean to 'know' someone, or something? Does it not mean that you have previously encountered that which you claim to know? When I say “I know”, am I not saying I have previously experienced that person or thing? And so, does the “I” who states “I know” not refer to a memory from a past experience?
I know you.
Means I have met you before, and hold some experience of you, through which I look at you.
I depend upon you, I loathe you, I love you or I hate you, and all of these are memories and reactions gathered and stored in our brain from past experiences.
Within humanity, the past is alive and colouring the present moment.
This “I”, this centre of memory within us, this incessant movement of human thinking, this ego, this bag of remembered words and images, is a psychological centre within us built out of memory. Legacy of school activity, and traditional divisive living, for we have evolved tribally as a race, which has conditioned our brains to function in this highly limited fashion, to live looking at life always through memory, and to build a sense of life value, by living as an inner conceptual self.
A thinker of thoughts.
Living life as a "thinker" creates a division in our minds. Here, we find the source of all psychological conflicts we endure in life. A division is the necessary required prerequisite for all conflict to flower. In truth, there is no psychological division, although we have all been conditioned by society to live in this inner divided psychological approach to life. The thinker, is a movement within thought, not the creator of thoughts. The thinker, is thought. This can be verified by a continuous observation of one's own psychological movements. Accurate vision of what is actually taking place within human consciousness has potential to revolutionise our mind, and to heal the societally imposed division we all carry, of thinker and thoughts.
Which, is to have become something. To build a life, from a past, into a future. To be industrious, to be a good little capitalist soldier.
We were born 'something', before our society pushed our psychological nature into an activity of living predominately within this inner world of memories, virtue of twelve years of scholastic memorising.
We were born free, and we were born as children of this universe. We were born from life. And life, is ever intelligent, ever bountiful, ever wondrous.
But the life we live today has lost this wonder, has lost all connection to anything true. Because we are living within a false identity of what we are.
Truth, in nature, is complete in nature.
A truth, when seen changes your life. It shatters previously carried illusions which limit life. Knowledge, which is the educated ground we live upon, has no ability for this, for knowledge, in its very nature, is always limited, and so never complete.
That which is never complete, is ever monotonously tied into a journey in time, seeking greater completion, by becoming 'more', denying the completion sought, which can only ever be found in the end of limitation, which is knowledge. In arrival.
In meeting life as it is, not as it needs to become.
It is when we stop seeking for completion, by seeking 'more', that we come to find completion, thorugh account of stopping the search. We can only experience completion in life where and when we find our lives to be.
Where else, in a future which is an idea or in a past, now dead and gone?
As long as we are seeking to become 'more', we never reach a sense of completion in our lives, for this movement is limitless, as 'more' always exists to achieve. Our society is functioning within the boundaries of such never ending limitation.
And so, this movement, the movement of becoming, the movement of ambition, the movement of success, can never bring completion to life. The movement of seeking completion, brings incompletion to life.
Completion is found, when the educated psychological movement of seeking more, of becoming something, comes to an end. Here and now. Where else?
The joy of life is found in meeting life without any division. In meeting life where you are, now. The search to become something other than what you are, the search for societal 'success' removes a persons awareness from this source of all life, and divides us all, one from another, each seeking our own self projected 'betterment' in a 'future', which is a projection of knowledge from our own thinking minds, and so a continuity of our past. In such a way, our lives become tiresome, weary, and monotonous, and the beauty and wonder, relationship and love of life, become lost to us.
You are living as knowledge.
When you say “I” am this” or “I am that”, this is memory talking, for knowledge, is what 'knows'.
Knowledge, is what states positively, or negatively.
Is life found in the known? Is life in the past? Is life to be found with the dead and gone? Or is the known only the continuity of that which is already over, the carrying of the dead past, psychologically, seeking to 'become' in a future incarnation, which is a modified continuity, of the past?
Is life found here, in past knowledge - in that which is now dead to the universe, which provides life to all? Or is life only found in the ending of that which is incomplete, which is knowledge, for there is always more to know?
Knowledge, is always incomplete, and there is always more to know. As there is always more to become, more to gather. Completion, an arrival in life, can never be found in a process of psychological becoming.
Life, is completion itself.
Life, is complete. And life is here, and life is now.
It is going nowhere. It has nothing to achieve, and the past, is dead to it. It is here, and now, and complete, and so perfect, within itself.
To meet perfection in our lives, all we need do, is stop becoming.
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.
