jiddu krishnamurti

I’ve been feeling drained of late. A slow-to-leave bug / cold has obviously not helped, but it is more than that. A personal issue has also left me feeling even more tired and has, in many ways, been a microcosm of challenges playing out in the wider world.

As you may know, previously I blogged about feeling tired of channelled messages spewing out the same old promises. I’ve begun to feel the same way about the Benjamin Fulfords and the David Wilcox for the same reason, plus the debates and opinions this type of info seems to rouse lead to no real conclusions, or facts. This type of truth-information feels like noise in an already noisy world and I question what value I am providing by spewing it out as if on auto-cue.

One looks externally to these ‘prophets-of-good-news.’ One awaits the revolution. But in fact, the real revolution is an inner one, much more immediate, and right here where we are in this very moment itself.

As I’ve grown tired of the daily challenges placed upon the so-called 99% by the agenda of the so-called 1% (as indeed have many millions), what I have found more tiring is the absence of recognition of this very same agenda within people themselves – in a real sense. ‘Real sense’ means – one’s own ego, greed, desire for power, desire to be right etc. It’s in all of us this agenda, till we awaken to it, and own it.
Whilst more people are indeed beginning to awaken from within, for most / many this awakening is to do with externals – awakening to the greed and corruption meted out on the many by the few. This is awakening to the other side of the coin, but not to the coin itself. It is simply not enough to awaken to the elite’s agenda, one has to awaken to one’s own agenda.

The majority of people live inside their mental judgments and opinions and believe they are the way they think they are, believe the world is the way they think it is. And all the while, they ignore what is actually occurring within them, as well as the real impact they have on others in what they say and do, and how they say it. Yes, the ‘what is’ can be uncomfortable, but to fail to find the courage to do the inner work, to learn how to quieten the noise in the head, means you miss the possibilities possible between people for real discourse, real creativity and real bonding.

When I feel this way, I come back to what I know to be the real truthers – Jiddu Krishnamurti for example, and here are two videos below. The real revolution is truly the inner one.

Enjoy.

  • when i started my search many years ago i read all kinds of books; new age, occult, channeled, psychic stuff. anything i came across. after a couple years i came across krishnamurti and i knew he KNEW what the deal was. he wasn’t very good at pointing though. i moved on to others like ramana. what’s amazing today is that there’s hundreds of awake people.
    yes the only real awakening is enlightenment. seeing you don’t exist as a separate entity. all else is playing within the apperance. heaven worlds, hellish worlds, aliens, various dimensions etc. all exist within duality. in truth there’s only one playing all parts.

    • tom, what was interesting about JK for me initially when I came across him was his focus on thought. It was a bit odd at first as I had never thought of thought. Most profound πŸ™‚ Of course RM said the same thing in a different way – mind cannot perceive the mind. All great, profound stuff.

  • JK described meditation not as sitting still in a certain position, but rather observing intensely with all of one’s sense the very moment one was experiencing.
    This idea changed forever the way I experience my life,

    • Caroline, yes wasn’t (isn’t) JK so life-changing. Getting JK entirely transformed my own experience from bottom up. So many of his ‘concepts’ were already spoken of before by many other sages, but the way he said them, with many specifics that were relate-able, were very new (to me) and challenging. His statement about being violent when you call yourself a label – ‘I am X’ for example.
      If I was on commission for JK, I’d be one of the wealthy 1% by now – just kidding πŸ˜‰

  • It is rare that I watch the videos posted here. Usually I rely on the precis and comments to catch the feel of the posting. This time I decided I would watch at least the first one (and that is all I have watched so far).
    The biggest impression I came away with is one that in a spiritual setting many may be uncomfortable with, and that was that Jiddu Krishnamurti was often describing the scientific method, or at least a close analogue to it.
    You start with an assumption or observation and question it. Does it enable you to predict anything, or answer a previously unanswered question ? If the answer is no you modify the assumption, or make another observation and repeat the process. If the answer is yes you still test it in other ways to see if it still makes correct predictions, or answers questions. Even when a lot of tests answer yes you only have a usable, but still imperfect tool. It is not until you, and the entire world can no longer think of any new tests that might say no that you can say it is probably right, but never the ultimate truth because new observations may lead to tests that can prove that test or observation wrong.

    • Bill, in the end you cannot get truth through analyses or logic or scientific methods. You can’t get what JK was saying through thought. This was one his biggest (imho) messages itself – thought is always old. Thanks for your comment.

    I had the extraordinary opportunity to attend Krishnamurti’s last public talk at the Kennedy Center, Wash., DC on April 22, 1985.
    I had never before and have never since experienced being in the presence of anyone with such light and magnetism. That is why everyone in the videos has that riveted look on there face. What a blessing that you have shared him with your audience. Krishimurti gave us the original idea that it all starts with the self.

    • Caroline, that must have been a great experience. And indeed, JK lives on through the transformations he engenders even now, and even just through one line of words. I consider his ‘teachings’ (though I believe he never wanted people to think of him so) to be – you could say – the path of deepest and most direct initiation, if that doesn’t sound too lofty. Thanks for sharing
