The Babel tower



The Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1563)

The Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1563) – The Tower of Babel (/beɪbəl/; Hebrew: מִגְדַּל בָּבֶל‎, Migdal Bavel) is a story told in the Book of Genesis of the Bible which supposes to explain the origin of different languages. According to the story, a united humanity of the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating from the east, came to the land of Shinar (Hebrew: שנער‎). As the King James version of the Bible puts it: 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. —Genesis 11:4–9[1]


Everything started when “god”

or the ‘game maker’ gave us a mind.


And we suddenly or gradually forgot who we were.

Where we were going and what we were doing.


We actually started to feel the need to know where we came from, to find ourself or to become someone. We wanted to know where we were leading and what we needed or not needed to do.


And so the Babel tower stopped.




As soon as the spiritual mind which connected all, stopped ruling subjugated by the analytical mind, it all went from a powerful state  guided by knowingness outside time and space, to a kingdom of judgments, of egos, of right and wrong and separation.

And the Babel tower stopped when the intent died.

It died, substituted by a series of serious planning, opinions and know-best.


Ouspensky has a beautiful insight of the Bible.

He explained how the first few levels of men were unable to communicate due to their state of sleep.

The only thing alive in them it was the mind

which individualizing and dividing stopped the works.




But as soon as the spiritual mind regains ground

through awakening and self- remembering,

things starts to make sense again.

Understanding becomes instant and a normal routine.


And so is our spiritual group here at the ranch.



We are all connected to the same knowingness until we start bringing our knowingness into the realm of thought and magically our paths diverge.

In this illusion we have an appearance of disagreement,

but it is not us having disagreements.

It is our minds.

And again, self-remembering and stopping identification with the minds, brings thing back to the right prospective.

  • Commentaries on Living

The idealist is the man with an idea, and it is he who is not revolutionary. Ideas divide, and separation is disintegration, it is not revolution at all. The man with an ideology is concerned with ideas, words, and not with direct action; he avoids direct action. An ideology is a hindrance to direct action.

Jiddu Krishnamurti,

Commentaries on Living, Series II, p. 16



“A certain illusion of control is provided in life by ordinary education, but if
circumstances change it all disappears.

(…)what is the chief thing that is holding me back from

A. Mechanicalness. In yourself things continue to ‘happen’—things over which you should have control, but you have not acquired control.

There are things in us which can and should be mechanical, such as physiological processes and things like that,
and there are other things over which we must acquire as much control as we can, because they keep us from awakening.

You do not realize to what an extent one thing in us is connected with another.

Everything is connected. You cannot do, or say, or even think anything out of the general line of things that happen.

A teacher cannot ‘do’ anything for you. You are given certain tasks and you have to do them.


People often ask: ‘How is it that I have been working so many years and have had no experience of higher centres yet?’ And I ask them: ‘Have you really been working so many years?’

One counts from the time one has heard these ideas, but one does not try to calculate how much one actually worked—how many days, how many hours or minutes in each day.

If one makes this calculation, one will see that there is no reason to expect any results yet, although one may have heard about it a long time ago.

It is necessary to put more energy into things—into self study, self-observation, self-remembering and all that.

 What does it mean to work practically? It means to work not only on intellect but also on emotions and on will. Work on intellect means thinking in a new way, creating new points of view, destroying illusions. Work on emotions means not expressing negative emotions, not identifying, not considering and, later on, also work on the emotions themselves. But what does work on will mean? It means work on one’s actions.

First you must ask yourselves: What is will in men No. 1, 2 and 3? It is the resultant of desires. Will is the line of combined desires, and as our desires constantly change, we have no permanent line. So ordinary will depends on desires and we can have many desires going in different directions. The line constructed out of all these angles is the resultant.

This is our will. It may go in one direction one day and in another direction another day, and we think it is straight. So it is really the resultant of our blindness. We have to ask ourselves on what the will of man No. 7 could be based. It must be based on full consciousness, and this implies knowledge and understanding connected with objective consciousness and a permanent ‘I’. So three things are necessary: knowledge, consciousness and a permanent ‘I’.

Only those people who have these three things can have real will; that means a will that is independent of desires or anything else.
