The root of our global chaos
The root of all our global communal chaos?
It is thought. What drives the decisions of any man?
What is it makes a man calls himself Christian, or Muslim, or Buddhist? His thinking.
And these religious beliefs divide us and have caused us to come to conflict so many times in our pasts, they have cost the lives of so many of us. As has patriotism, another educated and accepted psychological ‘security’ in our lives. Apparently.
What is it makes any man think himself a patriot of any country, dividing himself in a sense of hostile allegiance, towards the nation of his birth, yet willing to defend that nation, in division against others, born elsewhere?
Yes, it is, thinking.
What makes a man find security in the divisive ideologies of any political party? Are we getting this? Yes. It is.
What makes a man ambitiously seek into the future, in competition against others, finding value in life in a sense of becoming something tomorrow he is not today?
What makes many men follow authority, even when that authority acts in a manner, not conducive to the quality and in a manner beneficial to their lives?
Thinking, is the root of all human activity today. Is this the way life meant us to live? What is thinking? Ever ask such a question?
Or would you ask, who is thinking?
Thinking is movement in and of memory. You cannot think comprehensively and accurately about any city you have never visited before. This proves, beyond any need for any further discussion, that thinking, is movement within memory.
We seem to think our capacity to think is limitless, it is far from this. Thinking is limited, to what information exits, in memory. Thought is a movement of and within memory. Thinking is limited to our past experiences in life. Meaning, when we act on thinking, we are acting in a great ignorance, ignorant of that which we cannot possible know, due to the fact we have no remembered experience of it. And when we act in great ignorance, the end result is this chaotic world we all meet today.
This acting from a foundation of ignorance, is what has brought our world to such chaos.
We all act on our thinking. Our thinking is a movement of memory. If thought is our driving force in life, which it is, then we are living on the limitations of only repeating combinations of modified past experiences. We are also in the unenviable position in life, of never being able to meet the ever new quality of life.
Life is never old. Memory is always old. Life is always new.
Memory, is the past, and life is present. Is this the root of all our difficulties? That living as we do, from a foundation of past remembered experiences, divides our actions in life, preventing our ability to meet life in relationship this moment?
It would seem reasonable to assume so.
Our minds are the exact same structure, the content of our minds is divided, because each of us has lived through differing past experiences, and our actions, taken from the basis of this innate divisive quality of thought, lead us into our now separated futures, arising from the divisive content of our past experiences, and we come to conflict. And repeat, because thought, is memory. That which is divided, conflicts, two is the required number for any conflict to arise.
Could this be the reason we have suffered 6,000 wars in the past 6,000 years? Could this be the reason we have never known peace?
When we are educated as children to believe ourselves to be Christian and British and upper class and Tory, or Israeli and Jewish, or Iraqi and Muslim, we are being educated into long standing traditional divisions between human beings.
Divisions responsible for many previous conflicts and deaths.
By continuing these divisions, we are continuing these conflicts between us. All divisions lead to conflicts. And yet we find a limited security in living within such educated psychological accepted traditions.
A totally illusory sense of security. Wealth has become our largest of divisions. Fuelled by greed. Fuelled by self-importance. Me, before you.
Fuelled, by ideological capitalist tendencies, that life is about becoming top of the class. Fuelled, above all by this inner divisive, mechanical thinking.
Thought is common to us all. Thinking is our largest of problems, as it is, remaining to this very day, greatly misunderstood. And never questioned. We accept that thought is the correct instrument to lead our lives. Thought is memory, why do we think that leading our world in a modified repetition of what came before, is a valid approach to life? What came before, are never ending wars and conflicts between our people. We neither see clearly what our thinking actually is, nor do we see the absolute danger allowing this limitation to lead our lives has repetitively led us into, if we did, we would act.
Thought is rooted in our pasts, being the product of past experiences, stored as knowledge, arising in the brain cells. Legacy of twelve years of ‘education’. Twelve years of memorising. Its content is limited therefore, to past experiences. It is automatic. Have you tried to stop it?
Good luck with that.
In thinking, each of us has a little piece of organic ‘software’ running inside our brains, a computer like structure of programming, telling us what we are, what we see, and directing our actions on this global stage, this day.
Our thinking is the root of our divisive actions, and our divisive actions are the root of our societal problems. Look at today and these men of wealth, acting in their thinking, how they seek order in dividing from all others. This is how thought operates, in divisions, limited to my own back yard past experiences, seeking the continuity of my limited area in life, exploitative over yours.
That you think this movement is what you are, is true in a sense, in that it is your memory, however, totally false, in the sense that this is all that you are.
The ‘me’ of thinking is a conceptual affair, what you are, in life, is so much more than only a movement of memory.
You are life and death itself.
We are more than the totality of words and images. But we have been limited, to this. Thanks to a seemingly never-ending allegiance to this corrupted way of living throughout the corridors of time. And thanks to a comprehensive education system seemingly designed to produce this phenomenon of questionable value in the human brain.
Where did our thinking come from?
It was not present at birth. Language, is a necessity for thinking, and no child was born in command of any language. Our minds, are learned.
Thinking is so obviously based within a language, which is something only usable following education. Meaning, the mind of a young child, is not the same, as the mind of an older child and adult. Access to heaven, is reserved, to the wise and to young children, for a reason.
The doors of life and heaven are closed to the symbology of words.
We are all familiar with the results of living within a mind rooted in thinking. This is not difficult to see, as we all live in this destructive psychological fashion, we can see what thought builds. We can view its wonderful pursuits, in the divided world around us, and in the divided structure of mind within us.
Thought brings fear to life, anxiety, problems, depressions, worries, stress, a sense of time not present to this Universe. Thought pursues achievement, success, desire, and pleasures of every description. This is the common ground all of humanity stands upon.
As thought has been educated to certain conceptual identities (religion, nation, class, politics), as adults, we now have grown into these divisive psychological structures and naturally find a sense of security, in aligning with others, who have a similar world view, (similarly conditioned to see the world as the same). In doing so we, divide against others, doing the same, but using different identities. And then, we come to war, because of our divisions, and the fact that they, well, divide us.
Thinking, is at the root of all of our conflicts between each other.
Thinking is what makes a rich man so selfish he allows for poor children to die every five seconds on this planet from starvation. Six million a year, every year. A holocaust of children, every year. Unseen, uncared for, removed from view behind the walls of thought each of us carry inside which dictate our limited self-interested life pursuits.
Thinking is at the root of the deep selfishness of our global richest today, stashing so much money in tax havens, (Thirty Six Trillion) - as our world hungers to the point of its extinction.
It’s all thinking. Thinking, when viewed objectively, can easily be seen as the root of the most burning issue mankind has today. The operation of our thinking is divisive, mechanical, automatic and destructive. Self interested and self focussed and so uninterested and unfocussed on all else. The educated concept of human self, is a limitation to our lives and to our actions.
This is the area of our lives we must investigate and come to question if it is possible to change. The revolution in life we so need to meet is inside our skin, not external, the external structure of this terrible corrupted society, flows out from the thinking taking place within the knowledge founded limitations of every man’s mind.
A major issue is also this; our thinking is also rooted in an illusory sense of security.
Every ardent follower of any traditional religion gains a sense of security from the ideology of a traditional, educated and accepted religion and the comfort it has offered to their lives. Here, is where we are educated to find order. In the continuity of the past. Religion, may be the meeting of life itself, in nature, ever the new.
Every combatant patriot gains security on the ideology of belonging to a strong and powerful nation. This divides our people, (humanity) and necessitates defence and attack, and war.
Every very rich person gains a sense of security in becoming something, in the perpetual pursuit of ‘more’ and in a sense of power over others, all likewise conceptual movements, rooted in imagination and thinking. Childhood educated conformity.
We are all conceptually divided. Our divisions are destroying us, and our divisions are all psychological and conceptual in nature, educated into us, carried within our incessantly thinking minds, tied to a conceptual movement of divisive progression in psychological time. This is the root of all our conflicts, not anything more physical or material, than that. Our enemy, is within us. It is here we must bring revolutionary change. Or we have no hope of surviving ourselves. Our technological prowess will see so.
The change we need to see in this world, is within the consciousness of humanity, all other pursuits, are a waste of energy. We cannot change this rotten corrupted world, unless we bring to change that which has built it.
Can we affect our psychological state? Can we change?
We all seem so energetically emboldened to make our world better. The problem is this, that as long as we act, from our thinking, as we have seen, we are acting from the deep limitation of a totality of limited information, stored within the memory banks of our brain cells.
We are acting in a field which must divide us, and in our divisions, we will conflict and war.
Thought, will never see out of our present difficulties. Never. Quite a realisation.
It is our thinking, conditioned and limited to memory, to education, to past experience, which is the dividing factor between us all. That which is dividing us and causing all this misery on our planet, is unlikely anytime soon, to begin to change our communal direction, today driving so many of us over a cliff edge. That which is limiting to life and destructive, will never be any positive or constructive force.
Yet thinking, seems to be all we have. It is not. Thinking is not all we have. Thinking is all we remember.
We are much more than what we think we are. We are so much more than our remembered pasts. We are only living in an isolated cage of an educated and traditional approach to life. We are life itself.
If thinking is our problem, and it is hoped that this point has been well enough investigated above to now be understood by everyone, then it seems illogical to think to look in any other area, for resolution of our human problems. The understanding of the thinking mechanism within our brains, this movement of educated, traditional ‘me’, carries the only potential to positively impact mankind’s dire present day state.
If we can impact the root of our problems, we can make a huge change. The corruption of our world today, is all rooted in our divisive and therefore conflicted thinking. It is our self-interest, rooted in the school classroom, rooted in tradition, now rooted in memory, to become top of the class, to be a ‘success’, to ever continue our divisive pasts, seeking our isolated security, which is impossible, which is behind this insane gathering of our psychologically limited billionaires.
They can never stop. Hundreds of billions, and still, seeking more. Fuelled by a seeking of continuity of past pleasures, found in an insane gathering of more than could be spent in a million years, blind, mechanical, slaves to the God of accumulation. Educated to this. It’s not the number which is important. It is, the prestige and the isolation of the top position. And the power of course. The power over others’ lives.
All of our human problems begin in the conceptual area of our human mind, based and functioning and limited to divisive individual remembered experiences, rooted in education and memory.
We do not understand the structure of this, our thinking mind, of how it functions. We have not been educated to this. We have been educated to fill our minds with accepted traditional concepts and ideologies, never to come to our own authentic, first hand understanding of what we are, of what our life is, which is a part of the life f this Universe. We read books, and listen to experts, it never occurs to us, that, in possession of this complex inner divisive structure as we all are, we may bring our vision to bear, and come into a first hand understanding thorugh our own perception, of what we are.
And so we live in accepted traditional divisive educated concepts, which feed our thinking, and lead us to divisive action, and inevitably, to war. Our ‘progress’, from the club, through the bow and arrow, to the cannon, to the gun, to the atomic bomb. What progress we have made. How proud we all should be.
Soon, to be robotic armies of destruction and controlling implants in the brains of those who disagree with us?
The direction our world takes at this juncture, is dependent on our ability to live beyond our limited psychological educated illusory time based approach to life. Shall we continue to be "led"? Or shall we awaken to our own new found intelligence, and truly bring into being the greatest of all rests possible for the future of our race?
School, has been dreadfully limiting in providing any area of understanding to our lives. The truth is, school perverts and distorts our lives, dumbing us down continuously, never to question, only to accept. Live in memory, which is thinking. Never lead your own life, follow the words of an authority, bringing into being a subtle form of brain damage. We are not living, as nature intended. We are living as a capitalist structure society commanded at a young age, dictated we should live. Dividedly. It is easier to manage a divided race of people than one, intelligent, unitary force.
Why does our society not encourage our children to come to any understanding of what they are? We are all taught what to believe, in a religion, in a nation, but never what we actually are.
This, is the missing information, which will be the root of any salvation for mankind. For any coming salvation of mankind demands a complete reversal and cessation of his current divisive, problematic causing self-interested approach to life. An approach led by divisive thinking, rooted in limited memory. We cannot expect to carry our major psychological life destroying divisions and problem causing issues with us into the future, and find a world of harmony there.
We need to understand what we are. What we are, at root, is a movement of thinking. This, is what we need understand. How does anyone understand a movement of thinking?
How does anyone understand any non-understood movement?
You watch it. You watch it without choice. Incessantly.
But you must watch, in a very specific manner. Without division. Without choice. The actions of your mechanical educated inward thinking nature must be seen, not acted upon. A process of revelation, not a process of seeking to arrive at a better future state. This may be arduous work, for you are swimming against the longstanding educated and traditional currents of human civilisation.
We have been educated to believe that we are a thinker of thoughts, a permanent entity, responsible for the incessant movement of words and images inside us. This is simply not true. But please, do not accept that this is not true. The only value to this investigation, is when a person sees the truth or the falseness of it, for and by themselves.
We see ourselves as permanent psychological entities, a 'thinker' of thoughts, but this is not true. You may verify these words in your own vision. Never accept a word, you have accepted far too much already and what we merely accept, becomes a limitation to our lives. A truth accepted, is a lie. We are not thinkers of thoughts. We are, thought itself. There is no divisons within us, but we have been educated and conditioned to see it as so. Consistent choiceless observation can reveal the truth behind this eternal life destructive lie.
There is no permanent thinker within the area of the mind. The thinker, is a part of thinking.
This division, not based on any fact, yet greatly accepted to be so, creates a great difficulty within us, when it comes to beginning any such investigation, when we start to look at and into and to question thinking. If we view ourselves in the traditional manner, as a thinker of thoughts, we will naturally attempt to control, to suppress or to move beyond any movements of thought which seem counterproductive to the direction we seek to aim in, towards the desired understanding of what we are.
The thinker is the thought.
This division, of thinker and thoughts, is false, there is only a movement of thought, which divides as thinker and thoughts. And so any movement of only a limited part of a total psychological structure, acting against its own total movement, will naturally come into conflict with itself, as we now have two opposing energies within the same psychological structure. The psychological structure, is truly, one movement. Thought is one, though it divides and appears as many.
Verify these words with your own vision, if you see the need for a change in this world, and you understand that that change must be within the consciousness of humanity. The revolution our world needs, will begin with a revolution inside the mind of man. No other revolution has any chance of any success.
This is the only possible way.
Revolutionising our inner educated divisive and traditional destructive psychological inner world will revolutionise our divisive, traditional and destructive outer world. When we have ended our old traditional and educated mind of greed, battle, competition, ambition and destruction, we will find a new mind, without even looking for it. The ending of the old, is the beginning of the new. There is no further road to travel, than bringing that which is conflicting to our relationships and our understanding of life, to an end.
A new mind, will build a new world. A new mind, will come out of a total understanding of the old one. Or we will die trying to forever fix our terminal problems, forever caught in the non-realisation, that those divisive, desperate problems, were all forever firmly rooted in the psychological structure of how I am living, what I am and what I have been educated to be.
A new mind is so needed this day, for the old one, is so busy and occupied with its divisive Great Reset. A continuity of this inner very old worn out movement, a continuity in the destructive divisions of the lives of humanity.
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.
