VISITING VOICES: J. Krishnamurti, on virtue and mutation

..“THOUGHT IS SLUGGISH, POSTPONES, TAKES SHELTER IN THE ILLUSION OF GRADUALNESS, IN IDEALS, IN TIME. “Through time mutation is not possible. The very denial of time is mutation; mutation takes place where the things which time has brought into being, habit, tradition, reform, the ideals, are denied. Deny time and mutation has taken place, a […]

(67) LIVING HERE: All We Can ‘Do’

We each seem to find our way like a river to the Oneness. For some of us ‘miners’, like me, we had to finally stop digging. In my case it mean’t giving up everything that “I” (my conditioning) cherished…we lighten and grow in that unqualified, unfiltered, light. Best we can ‘do’ is sit by our […]

Rupert Spira:”IF YOU GO DEEPLY INTO FEAR, YOU’LL FIND PEACE THERE”

I wish you all a happy and therefore, kinda fearless 2019.. Nisargadatta tells us how:“To make happy, be happy!” I just finished a cuppa Dragonwell green tea with this video and am moved to post it on NDL. Rupert Spira is compassionate, timely and insightful… Love, and be well 🙂

THE DEATH OF LIVING LEGENDS

(Here’s a note from 2010 that seems relevant today) “ Suppose…suppose…” Wyatt Earp’s recorded last words were those, I read somewhere… We’re all living legends – that is, we live the life that’s handed down to us; the Legend that finds us just at the time we’re looking for it! For me, as a boy, […]

SEEING THROUGH TO THE BOTTOMLESS.

A note to myself: Don’t get stuck anywhere. One of my teachers –Nisargadatta- said wisely and well: “A man who claims to know what is good for others is dangerous.” He later also said in I AM THAT, that “Teachers are like milestones.” Indeed, for many of us spiritual veterans, there can be miles of […]

NEELAM: The Importance of Honesty in Experiencing Presence and Knowing Who we Really Are.

Sometimes we begin to think that presence is something in particular. In our eagerness to learn and find out about presence, we begin to make presence into an object. We begin to make it into something we can identify and put into a little box . We create a little corner somewhere in our minds […]

LIVING HERE: Being Aware Of Little, Quiet Things…

The view from here is of the whole, from the whole. “To be aware of little, quiet things, you need to be quiet inside. A high degree of alertness is required. Be still. Look. Listen. Be present.” (Eckhart Tolle. Photo: Norman Fox, Vancouver BC).

THAT’S WHAT I AM (The Caravan Of Life)

Walking late all over this old world looking around and around, and what I see seems so simple to me ’cause everywhere I go I’m just seeing myself tonight. You don’t have to wander far to see the stuff of what you are. Going back to the starlight cause that’s what I am. and that’s […]

LIVING HERE: Hell’s In Our Head

Hell seems real wherever we live, long as we live in our head, in our beliefs about what’s real. …Talking about knowing reality, here’s a Walt Whitman, Song Of Myself, excerpt, apparently about the occasion of his ‘waking’ up: Swiftly arose and spread around me the peace and knowledge that pass all the argument of […]

TEA WITH J.KRISHNAMURTI: Belief is the Denial of Truth

“Stillness comes only when you understand the whole process of thought, because to understand the process is to end it and the ending of the process of thought is the beginning of silence.” Question: Belief in God has been a powerful incentive to better living. Why do you deny God? Why do you not try […]
