Truth: A Pathless Trek

There is no path to truth. It is a meander with no end in sight. The undulations of spirit and emotion get less and less through understanding. The epiphany moments get deeper and deeper the more space there is between thoughts. Pure contemplative silence is needed when one isn’t in relationship. Discipline, conformity, and authority…

Looking for Creative Writers/Graphic Artists

I am starting an online magazine.  The categories will be established based on writer/graphic artist submissions (writers/graphic artists will either select a category/categories from a list or they would create a brand new category).  Initially, writers/graphic artists would be paid from the advertising revenue– but eventually once there is sufficient material and it’s proven to…

The Observer….

The thinker is the thought. The observer is the observed. The experiencer is the experienced. No super-consciousness, no “I”; No space in between– For, there is an immeasurable space without borders. When one observes a tree, The memories of yesterday’s tree are dropped, And a verbal description loses its significance– One simply is aware of…

Dissolving the “I”….

Oh, the barbarity of the world! The killing; the slandering. And we think it can be solved by our petty minds. We rely on ideas, governments, and organizations. Dead information can’t be used to meet the “new”. The “outer” can only be changed with an inner transformation. Our thought process has created this mess. And…

An Otherness….

One is never truly in a real relationship. Unhinged by mental enemies. Two people meet each other, As two parallel lines that never intersect. Having no memories, no ambitions, no anxieties, etc. Self-concern completely shut off. One sees an “otherness”. This “otherness” is beauty; is love. In that moment, there is an intersection in relationship….

The Image….

The thinker creates the image; The “I” that encircles the unenlightened mind. Titles, jealousies, conclusions, etc. possess the mind. Both oneself and the other are given images by thought. One can’t be in a communal relationship, Unless one is free of all thoughts and images. The “old” (thought) can never meet the “new” fully. So,…

Permanency….

Why does one seek permanency? Things, ideas, people, and oneself are not permanent. Never the same– Different each and every moment. Only by observing the flux, without dialogue, can one receive the indescribable. Not finding permanency in one thing, One pursues it in another. But it is not to be found. Thought;  images themselves aren’t…

The Path of Right Education….

Why is math, science and technology pushed on the child at a young age? Shouldn’t one understand oneself before one delves into those areas? For, if oneself is understood, the sciences can be learned efficiently and effectively. But without an understanding of oneself, learning those disciplines is a chore. Effortless or full of effort? So,…

Living and Dying….

By understanding death, One comes to life. Dying to the memories, titles, property; Everything that encircles the “I”– The conscious mind. One then comes to truth, love. No dialogue, just simple observance. The mind totally blank when receiving the “new”. This love has boundless energy. It can alter the fabric of society. So, how is…

Not Knowing….

The key to enlightenment is: To be able to exclaim, “I don’t know”. To make that statement means one’s on a learning process. For there is no end state; No complete knowledge– Both self and outer knowledge. Oh, the void one “sees” when learning– Wide open, spacious! Learning is constant movement, Not the gathering of…

An Explosiveness of Energy….

Can one not think while alone? Be in an empty, meditative state. No “I” hovering above; Clouding perception. Our petty thinking creates loneliness. We do not know what it is to be truly alone. Not holding onto the past; Uninfluenced by one’s own thoughts And the words of another– One will come upon this aloneness….

Relationship with All Things….

Passage from Jiddu Krishnamurti’s, “On Relationship,” pg. 33.   At whatever level you live, there is conflict, not only individual conflict, but also world conflict.  The world is you; it is not separate from you.  What you are, the world is.  There must be a fundamental revolution in your relationship with people, with ideas.  There…
