This body and this place of living.....

This body and this place of living is thirumanthiram..... it is a temple.....that is the happening experience...i am not polluting it....don't want to...even if i try, the body is resisting...and revolting.....it is intensified for the past 12 months...it is at its peak now...virulently revolting if I pollute it...
This place of living and work is a temple.....don't want anything or anybody to pollute it.....i am trying to work also........in this, given the constraints, whenever it goes over-board, i am getting constant live responses in the form of pain or boils in the head and inflammed tongue, mouth and entire food-pipe or severe cramps​. At times, these are unbearable also.....so, inevitably, i am working in silence....
Integrity is the driving force always.....now, I could do only wholistic acts....don't have a choice about it.....it is one river.....day and night.....resting and awake....working or otherwise.....flowing and directed by the flow.....humbly observing the flow......
Soul's journey is towards only one thing.......its origin.....the total energy......time and space make it sequential, may be birth after birth.....then the free will is........that is when time and space breaks....the queue disappears.... and you are the total energy...
அடைய வேண்டிய நிலை என்று ஓன்று இருந்தால், அதற்காக ஏதாவது பண்ண வேணடும்..... அடைய வேண்டிய நிலையிலேயே நாம் எப்பொழுதும், பிறப்பில் இருந்து இறப்பு வரை இருந்தால், நாம் பண்ண வேண்டியது என்ன உள்ளது....இருப்பை எண்ண நிலை மறைக்கிறது....உணர்வு நிலையில் வெளிப்படுகிறது.
"It is only in the midst of relationship that we can spontaneously discover ourselves as we are." - K
While talking, is it possible to go beyond the listening 'you' and addresses directly the energy behind the 'you'.........
Our body, the whole system, got used to generations and generations of living-by-thinking-process. It is in each cells of our body. 
In the process, we've become numb, devoid of feeling and love! If one lives the pain, sorrow or even any ​other strong feeling, it'll be​ impossible to live-by-thinking-process. Imagine the feeling-state of Mangalore-junction accident victims or the state of that elderly amma on Residency-junction.
Why do we put something on a pedestal? Is it a major stumbling-block? In everything....in work....and in spiritual and religious journey also........why pedestal at all? Why can't anything be a simple act? Is it not the pedestal which comes in the way?
WORK is the only way. Idling or whiling will only strengthen the thinking-process. Work, at least will keep throwing challenges at us.
As we have to go beyond the thinking process....Instant Vs delayed. Instant-pleasure and delayed-punishment are preferred, against instant-punishment and delayed-pleasure.

This body and place of working

This body and this place of living..... it is a temple.....that is happening experience...i am not polluting it....don't want to...even if i try, the body is resisting...and revolting.....it is intensified for the past 12 months...it is at its peak now...virulently revolting if I pollute it...

This place of living and work is a temple.....don't want anything or anybody to pollute it.....i am trying to work also, given the constraints....to this, i am getting constant live responses in the form of pain or boils in the head and food-pipe. At times, these are unbearable also.....so, inevitably, i am working in silence....

Integrity is the driving force always.....now, I could do only wholistic acts....don't have a choice about it.....it is one river.....day and night.....resting and awake....working or otherwise.....flowing and directed by the flow.....humbly observing the flow......

Soul's journey is towards only one thing.......its origin.....the total energy......time and space make it sequential, may be birth after birth.....then the free will is........that is when time and space breaks....the queue disappears.... and you are the total energy...

In facing a fact there is a release of energy



Posted:
Why should not jealousy, ambition, etc. be immediately brushed aside? Why should there be this postponement, the gradual change, the acceptance of idealistic authority? I hope, sirs, you are thinking it out with me and not merely listening to me. We accept this gradual process of change because it is more easy, and postponement is more pleasurable. The immediate gives you a great deal of excitement, and to see its value is much more difficult and requires much greater attention and energy. I do not know if you have realized that in facing a fact there is a release of energy, and it is this facing the fact, from which energy is derived, which has the quality that brings about mutation. And we cannot face the fact if we are convinced that change through a gradual process, through influence, through fear, through compulsion, is the only way. In the very act of facing it, you will find there is release of energy, psychologically. Most of our lives are wasted through conflict. We do not face facts but run away from them, seeking various forms of escape. This is dissipated energy, and the result of that dissipation is confusion. If one does not escape, if one does not translate the fact in terms of one's own pleasure and pain, but merely observes, then that act of pure seeing in which there is no resistance is the releasing of energy. - Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. XII,288,Choiceless Awareness

If you can really understand this, then the seed of that radical revolution has already been planted


If you can really understand this, then the seed of that radical revolution has already been planted - JKOnline Daily Quotes

Posted:
Change comes into being when there is no fear, when there is neither the experiencer nor the experience; it is only then that there is the revolution which is beyond time. But that cannot be as long as I am trying to change the 'I', as long as I am trying to change what is into something else. I am the result of all the social and the spiritual compulsions, persuasions, and all the conditioning based on acquisitiveness -my thinking is based on that. To be free from that conditioning, from that acquisitiveness, I say to myself, 'I must not be acquisitive; I must practice nonacquisitiveness.' But such action is still within the field of time, it is still the activity of the mind. Just see that. Don't say, 'How am I to get to that state when I am nonacquisitive?' That is not important. It is not important to be nonacquisitive; what is important is to understand that the mind which is trying to get away from one state to another is still functioning within the field of time, and therefore there is no revolution, there is no change. If you can really understand this, then the seed of that radical revolution has already been planted and that will operate: you have not a thing to do. - Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. VIII,163,Choiceless Awareness

It is here that I encountered what I feel to be Krishnamurti's major discovery



"We probed into the nature of space and time, and of the universal, both with regard to external nature and with regard to mind. But then, we went on to consider the general disorder and confusion that pervades the consciousness of mankind. It is here that I encountered what I feel to be Krishnamurti's major discovery. What he was seriously proposing is that all this disorder, which is the root cause of such widespread sorrow and misery, and which prevents human beings from properly working together, has its root in the fact that we are ignorant of the general nature of our own processes of thought. Or to put it differently it may be said that we do not see what is actually happening, when we are engaged in the activity of thinking." - Dr David Bohm

Is it possible to just look? - JKOnline Daily Quotes

Is it possible to just look?
Posted:
Can I look without the word at every problem: the problem of fear, the problem of pleasure? Because the word creates, breeds thought; and thought is memory, experience, pleasure, and therefore a distorting factor. This is really quite astonishingly simple. Because it is simple, we mistrust it. We want everything to be very complicated, very cunning; and all cunning is covered with a perfume of words. If I can look at a flower nonverbally -and I can; anyone can do it, if one gives sufficient attention -can't I look with that same objective, nonverbal attention at the problems which I have? Can't I look out of silence, which is nonverbal, without the thinking machinery of pleasure and time being in operation? Can't I just look? I think that's the crux of the whole matter -not to approach from the periphery, which only complicates life tremendously, but to look at life, with all its complex problems of livelihood, sex, death, misery, sorrow, the agony of being tremendously alone -to look at all that without association, out of silence, which means without a center, without the word which creates the reaction of thought, which is memory and hence time. I think that is the real problem, the real issue: whether the mind can look at life where there is immediate action, not an idea and then action, and eliminate conflict altogether. - Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. XV,143,Choiceless Awareness

Imposed, created reality


We create our own reality for a person, event, occasion, corporate-entity. Quickly various inputs are assumed based on minimal facts and an imagined face is given. Green Valliey was assumed to be something and reality turned out to be different.

This happens all the time with everything we come across. That's   the way mind is built, never living in reality, all the time assuming threats, imagined insecure positions, anxious futures. In the process, missing  to live the connected world. Living the connected physical feeling state, life traverse on that, bereft of all the anxieties related to secured life in all aspects of life.

A person, as he is, is what he makes of himself or what he is made out to be? Then the freewill is!

Is there self-regulation all the time at both macro and micro level? Basic elements are there, including planets and the rest. Then, both at micro and macro level, whatever comes out of self-regulation is. Balancing function is part and nature of total energy. As part of balancing, material world is created. The whole materialistic world created out of thinking is part the total energy. Thinking is prior to materialistic  creation. (Creation or recreation?). ("When one gives one's heart, it is a total action. And when you give your mind, it is a fragmentary action."-K.) And thinking emanates out of mind. Materialistic  stream is flowing all the time.

Materialistic world and functions are necessary and inevitable part of total energy. Whether an individual soul partakes in it or not is its freewill. If it doesn't partake,  it is not an individual soul. Every moment, the choice is there.

Thoughts are from the void?


IF IT IS ONLY DOSHA/PRAKRITI in PLAY all the TIME: It takes away the person, ownership of action and so the guilt, and also the TIME.

If  STATE OF DOSHA/PRAKRITI is responsible for actions/experiences, mine or others, how can I REACT to actions?

Are thoughts from an unknown ​mysterious ​void? If you experience that thoughts occurring are not arising from you, WHAT MORE IS THERE TO UNDERSTAND?

We all come into this world with our unique “blueprint” which is pre-installed in us at birth.​


This blueprint creates “who we are” – our unique personality, our mental and physical characteristics​. It makes us ​literally one of a kind. You may ask what is this blueprint made up of ? It is made up of the same five elements ( fire, ether, air, earth, and water) that our universe is built upon and these five elements are represented in our bodies as three doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.​
​ 
Each one of us is made up of the combination of these three doshas. Most of us have one or two doshas to be dominant, with third one
​​to be passive. This makes up our unique blueprint or prakriti (constitution) by ayurveda.
​ 
As we grow older and life starts to happen, the proportion of our prakriti starts to fluctuate in response to our inner and outer environment. This gradually creates imbalance in our constitution, which in turn starts to affect our physical and mental health.

My relationship undergoes a tremendous revolution - JKOnline Daily Quotes



Posted:
I generally look at my wife, husband, at a person, with all my prejudices and memories. Through those memories I look; that is the center from which I look; therefore, the observer is different from the thing observed. In that process thought is constantly interfering, through association, and with the rapidity of the association. Now, when I realize the whole implication of that instantly, there is an observation without the observer. It is very simple to do this with trees, with nature; but with human beings, what takes place? If I can look at my wife or my husband non-verbally, not as an observer, it is rather frightening, isn't it? Because my relationship with her or with him is quite different. It is not in any sense personal; it is not a matter of pleasure, and I am afraid of it. I can look at a tree without fear, because it is fairly easy to commune with nature, but to commune with human beings is much more dangerous and frightening; my relationship undergoes a tremendous revolution. Before, I possessed my wife, and she possessed me; we liked being possessed. We were living in our own isolated, self-identifying space. In observing, I removed that space; I am now directly in contact. I look without the observer, and therefore without a center. Unless one understands this whole problem, merely to develop a technique of looking becomes frightful. Then one becomes cynical, and all the rest of it. - Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. XV,145,Choiceless Awareness.
