We live in two worlds, us humans. We each of us share our physical world, it is identical to each of us, if we see it clearly and without any inner distortion.
Which we rarely do.
The distortion we can place on our physical world comes projected from our inner world, our world of thinking, our human consciousness. That which we endearingly call “myself”. That, which we feel to be the very centre of our being. The movement and the inner world of human consciousness. Self. Inner words and images in continuous flow.
Have you considered the nature and structure, the design and activities, of this inner movement of words and images you identify with within? How does it function, where did it come from, how does it continue?
What is its relationship to the chaos in our world?
We are identical, us human beings. We all are, actually, part of one living organism, and this universe is what gave birth to us. The word “Universe” originally meant ‘one song’, and we are an arising melody within that eternal song.
We are identical outwardly, each of us has two arms and two legs, the universal design of our outward physical manifestation, is easy to see. We are the same, physically differing only in superficial appearance. We all breathe the same air, drink the same water, have blood pumping around our bodies sustaining life. Our inner worlds are what differs between us and cause us to forever live in war bringing conflict and the inevitable following tears. We are divided in the content of the words and images which we identify with internally, and this brings us repetitively to conflict.
The structure of our inner worlds is also identical, in structure, meaning how they work, what differs is perceived content. The structure of our inner world carries the education, the beliefs, the values, the ideologies, attachments and identifications educated into us when young, and added to and modified along the way, as we progress into our adult and elderly years.
This is only to state in other words that some of us relate to being identified as British, some American, others Israelis and some Palestinians. These, are our psychological educated identities. Conceptual historical movements educated into us as children which now follow a foundation of what we come to believe ourselves to be. We are told what to be, and we accept and find security in this traditional acceptance which divides humanity as a whole.
We do this societally with religious beliefs we are educated to identify with, and dutifully become Christians, Muslim, Jews, or Buddhists. Or one of another 4,200 plus divided religions, or 195 potential feelings of patriotic attachment arising from as many divided historically manifesting nations.
There are over 4,200 'religions' in this world. These, so obviously, divide mankind, and in our divisons, we persecute, conflict and war. There are 195 divided nations. Infinite political ideologies. A division of wealth, desecrating our world this day. All divisions in life lead us into battle. An undivided people, never war.
Do you see here, that our inner world is our outer world? Our outer world is a giant reflection of the contribution each of our learned divisive thinking processes contributes into it. Do you see, that they are the same? Eternally related. Our society is built on the conflicting contents of our inner thinking minds, educated into us, over millenia.
Our inner feelings of attachment which we gain a physical and spiritual sense of security from holding onto and following, is the continuity of the outer manifestations of these same energies in our world. The energies, which convinced us as children, that they were to be our security. We are the present line in a continuity of divided human psychological ideologies which divide mankind, and have repeatedly brought us to sorrow.
Therefore, we are the world, which need to change, and there is no other. We, are the problem we need to face.
Christians, make the world of Christianity, there is no Christianity, without Christians. Jews, the same, Muslims, the same. Nationalities the same. Political identification, the same. Ideological differences, economical plundering, racist divisions, repetitive social conflicts and wars, all arise, all are born from this inner foundation of what we have accepted inwardly, what we have conceptualised, what we find our sense of security within the progressive continuity of, but which divides from all other doing exactly the same.
The exact same pattern, seeking security in inner accepted learned concepts, only the inner content differs.
And the inner content is nothing we have found for ourselves to be true in life, this is educated and accepted dogmatic assertion. Our world is so conflicted because of the patterns of life we have accepted in a long line of historical continuity.
Few Jews live with love in their hearts for the Palestinian people. Few Americans with love in their hearts for an Afghani child. Few Jews, for Arabs. Few Arabs, for Jews. Few rich for poor. Few governments for their populations, few rich for poor.
What is interesting to see is that what provides this illusory sense of inner security, which is no security at all, because it divides us and in our divisions, we meet war suffering over and over again, is the same for each of us.
Our thinking is doing the damage.
What fills our hearts and minds, throughout our lives, is identifiable as conceptual. It exists within the area of thought. And thought, is knowledge. Images, arising in imagination. Our knowledge, which we gain a sense of security from, is in this area and is what is divisive between us. And what divides us, conflicts us.
Our enemy is within us.
Perhaps some of us have seen the films of Israeli and Jewish school pupils, being educated to view their lives as a chosen people, and the lives of Arab children, comparatively as a much lesser thing? Vice versa, a similar situation likely exists. We are not casting stones on anyone’s accepted inner conceptual beliefs, education or judgements. Nor their divisive behaviour. We are merely watching, that we may see clearly, for when we see a danger clearly, we act immediately, as we might in removing ourselves from the path of an oncoming bus.
Our inner educated concepts and alliances to traditional long standing historical identifications seeking continuity is what is killing our people.
Divisions in our lives bring our race repeatedly to our never ending suffering. We are one people and what divides us is our conceptual security which arises from inner accepted beliefs and identifications we have been educated to hold. In such a situation, humanity can never come to intelligent action. We can never live together and so we can never stop war, for we are dividing our children, one from another before any such possibility can ever arise. Our seeking security in the continuity of our limited historical traditions, is the very movement which maintains our global historical insecurity. The reason, we have endured 6,000 wars in the past 6,000 years. The reason a child dies of starvation every five seconds in this world, our communal and only home, (6 million a year), as simultaneously 36 trillion rots in tax havens. Division kills humanity. And we, are humanity.
THE SOURCE OF ALL DIVISIONS
Our actions arise from our thinking, our thinking is knowledge, and our thinking is the continuity of these educated differences between us. And so our actions are always biased, prejudiced eternally to an educated divisive allegiance inwardly and so we are limited in action, to those inner concepts we have been educated to always find security living within. Held in our thinking.
These inner concepts may be religious in nature, economical, traditional, national, social and class status, economical, ideological. It matters not, the ultimate end, is a division between human beings, and this is the issue in our lives, which lays our lives to waste, brings sorrow to our hearts and chaos to our societies.
We are one, without our inner educated worlds, we are the same.
I am another you.
We are, in truth, part of the same energy of all life, which permeates this entire Universe.
That we do not see this as so, is the prime reason we war, suffer, and have lost all meaning of the words religion and truth and love and beauty and death. We have conceptualised these words, to a meaning which relates to our own programmed psychological state. To a Christian, it is a truth that Jesus is the only way. To a Jew, the same truth is a falsehood.
This, is our eternal problem.
It is not which ideology is correct, it is that all ideologies divide us. And so all, are dangerous to our ability to live in harmony.
Today, 'wealth' is a very dangerous division among men, and the accumulation of 'wealth' is built on an ideology that 'more' is always 'better'. One we were all forced to swallow by this capitalist society. One today wreaking havoc in our world in the name of ‘building back better’. A movement rooted in the ideological division of the richest of us, seeking the world they have envisioned. It seems, although we are equally entitled to call this world our home, a majotrity of us, are not being permitted access to such life changing debate.
The arrogance of the division of wealth and self importance.
Better what? Better wealth divisions? Better tax havens? Better poor children dying of starvation? Better corruption of our self interested governments?
The word ‘better’ is a comparison, and so a continuity of what we meet this day. We need not 'better' this totally broken up world of divided human beings.
We need bring not to its end.
And what do we understand of truth, truly?
Do we rest in Universal truth of the order of this loving bountiful Universe which gave birth to us, that it fills our hearts with joy and brings our minds to contended peace in absolute silence? Fills our relationships with love and care for each other?
Can truth, be given to you, by another?
What we call ‘truth’ greatly has been. Given to us. This is 'my truth', or 'your truth', which is 'no truth' at all, for if and when true truth is ever to be found, it will be found to be the same for every one of us. Is truth, a matter of belief which divides people? Is truth second hand information and its acceptance from the traditional enforced continuity of energies long standing? Is truth to be found in the assurances or words of another, or a book?
Where shall we find truth? Why is this important? I have heard that truth, shall set us free.
If humanity could ever come to remove from his mind and heart the projected and learned imagery of educated 'truths' which only divide us, if these divisons could come to an end, now void of this inner search for security, are we not now, in a position of finding actual security? If our insecurity is based on divisive principles, there can be no security between us. In ending these learned principles, we come to find the security we seek, now removed from the conflicting inner educated dogmas which divide our lives and bring us repeatedly to war.
A TRUE AND LASTING CHANGE
'Truth' is surely in none of these longstanding historically educated concepts, in none of these accepted life conditioning divisive approaches to life?
Must truth not be come to by oneself? Alone?
Is truth anything I may pick up in the words and assurances of another? Is truth only for the unfortunate ‘expert’s, that I may only accept, and never come to myself? Does truth need a moderator, an authority, or an expert, or are these the very denial of truth?
Truth, surely, is to look at life, without any inward movement arising from accepted educated information, colouring and distorting what I see? Truth is surely at the very least, to see very clearly, unbiased and unprejudiced by what I think about what I see.
To live a life in freedom of perception, of that life, unadulterated by the past.
If I am nothing inside, not a Jew, not a Christian, not a Muslim, not a Brit, not an American, not an Oligarch or a King or a pauper. Then I find what I have always been.
A human being.
The same, as you. The same as us all. And without such irrelevancies as inner educated historical concepts to seek to find security in, which is an obvious impossibility, I may come to find, that I, have always been, nothing other, than another you.
And in this realisation, what else could we ever meet than a deep sense of relationship and love for one another?
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.
