THE GIFT

THE GIFT

....

…. ♣ Are you speculating, or are you actually experiencing as we are going along? You do not know what a religious mind is, do you? From what you have said, you don’t know what it means; you may have just a flutter or a glimpse of it, just as you see the clear, lovely blue sky when the cloud is broken through; but the moment you have perceived the blue sky, you have a memory of it, you want more of it and therefore you are lost in it; the more you want the word for storing it as an experience, the more you are lost in it. –  J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life ♣

I have been searching for a long time for a method to enlightenment.

I have studied many paths… connected with several great spiritual masters…

.

Today I finally realized that, if there is a way out,

it is the way free of the analytical/ rational minds.

.

Any path, any activity, any theory or exercise of which the rational mind can have any awareness,

is just a side of a of a dichotomy, a yin or yang, a black or white.

It is just a type of energy.

The will, the un-bendable intention, the postulate, and all that,

which is above the energy composing the blueprint is what is going to get us out.

.

Self remembering. The recognition without judgment or evaluation, to be part of an illusion, a dream

is the key.

The skill, and the strength necessary to not get involved with any part of it

are a must.

I saw an amazing movie recently called : “Inception”

There+is+no+spoon

“Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth. Neo: What truth? Spoon boy: There is no spoon. Neo: There is no spoon? Spoon boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

 ♣J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life♣

“You have the flash of understanding, that extraordinary rapidity of insight, when the mind is very still, when thought is absent, when the mind is not burdened with its own noise. So, the understanding of anything -of a modern picture, of a child, of your wife, of your neighbor, or the understanding of truth, which is in all things- can only come when the mind is very still. But such stillness cannot be cultivated because if you cultivate a still mind, it is not a still mind, it is a dead mind.

The more you are interested in something, the more your intention to understand, the more simple, clear, free the mind is.

Then verbalization ceases. After all, thought is word, and it is the word that interferes. It is the screen of words, which is memory, that intervenes between the challenge and the response. It is the word that is responding to the challenge, which we call intellection. So, the mind that is chattering, that is verbalizing, cannot understand truth -truth in relationship, not an abstract truth. There is no abstract truth. But truth is very subtle. It is the subtle that is difficult to follow. It is not abstract.

It comes so swiftly, so darkly, it cannot be held by the mind. Like a thief in the night, it comes darkly, not when you are prepared to receive it. Your reception is merely an invitation of greed. So a mind that is caught in the net of words cannot understand truth. –

  2. Hi Sylvia;
    Today, Oct 21, 2014, and all of a sudden, I found myself in a Mirror Universe looking at one particular man and his life quotes, Krishnamurti.I started reading a book of his many years ago. I found myself curious and followed his ‘carrot on a stick’ through the book. I remember being afraid, about the new feeling traveling through my physical consciousness and can even recall that today (about 28 years later). I felt like Milo the boy in the book ‘The Phantom Tollbooth’ (Norman Juster,author) as he entered
    the many different, fantasy areas of being, that he visited with his dog ‘Tock”. Today after traveling many different paths, Zen Buddhism those that followed that path; Arica Institute NYC and Oscar Ichazo; Movement of Spiritual Awareness and John Roger; Insight Training and Russ Bishop; Dr Richard Feynaman (Physics) and the depth and meaning I understand in using Homeopathic medicine as a tool for balancing the mental, and physical body. Today I find myself with an understanding and have come into balance with that understanding and all of my searching, realizing that the truth of every moment is myself, that my understanding is that I can do those things that I have sought after for so long and that I have become the Master of my own footprints and creator of my next breath. And, because I understand this position, to know that it will change constantly, and all I have to do is watch and be ready for the next breath, and allow for all of this to be a gift, of understanding for anyone else also.
    Love to All- Dave Cleveland
