LIVING LIFE TO ESCAPE ONESELF.

LIVING LIFE TO ESCAPE ONESELF.

♣ “If you judge me by emotion or logic, you cannot benefit from me. You still covetous in some way, maintaining proprietorship…..”, “Don’t you see that the first two pieces of advice were for your mind and that the last piece can be understood only when you perceive it yourself?”, “Attachment to externals’, said the voice of Ansani, ‘has been what has held you back all these years.”♣

As I’m progressing with my research

something becomes more and more apparent,

1) there is no way out unless we are capable to lose something we value as life itself without regretting it,

2) we have to be willing to find and pursue our own spiritual path at any cost, as there are different paths for everyone of us,

3) we have to have enough courage and power to overcome this human form constituted of our mind(s), personalities, I’s and EGOS, the FEELING of self importance (also expressed as self-pity and self -denial), the wanting to-be or not-to-be alike.

Becoming fearless is not a requirement,

while not surrender to fear it is.

.

And, one of the way to surrender to fear is exactly what the majority of people call LIVING LIFE.

Krishnamurti to Himself

“When the industry of entertainment takes over

“When the industry of entertainment takes over,

as it is gradually doing now, when the young people,

the students, the children,

are constantly instigated to pleasure,

to fancy, to romantic sensuality,

the words restraint and austerity are pushed away,

never even given a thought.

The austerity of the monks, the sannyasis,

who deny the world, who clothe their bodies

with some kind of uniform or just a cloth—

this denial of the material world is surely not austerity.

You probably won’t even listen to this,

to what the implications of austerity are.

When you have been brought up from childhood

to amuse yourself

and escape from yourself through entertainment,

religious or otherwise,

and when most of the psychologists

say that you must express everything you feel

and that any form of holding back

or restraint is detrimental, leading to various forms of neuroticism,

you naturally enter more and more

into the world of sport, amusement, entertainment,

all helping you to escape from yourself, from what you are.

The understanding of the nature of what you are,

without any distortions, without any bias,

without any reactions to what you discover you are,

is the beginning of austerity.

Krishnamurti, Krishnamurti to Himself, pp 47-48

The master said to his disciples: ‘You have to learn how to teach, for man does not want to be taught. First of all, you will have to teach people how to learn. And before that you have to teach them that there is still something to be learned. They imagine that they are ready to learn. But they want to learn what they imagine is to be learned. When you have learned all this, then you can devise the way to teach. Knowledge without special capacity to teach is not the same as knowledge and capacity.’ from THE STORY OF FIRE (p 41) Tales of the Dervishes Teaching stories of Sufi Masters over the Past Thousand Years by Idries Shah
