Can Thought Stop? - Amsterdam 1967 - Public Talk 4

Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Can thought stop? - 28 May 1967 • When there is a process of recognition it is the projection of the past. The mind is always functioning within the field of time, which is of memory. Can the mind go beyond that? • What is pleasure and what is desire? • How is it possible, without control, subjugation or denying, for thought not to allow itself to interfere? • When all authority of every kind is put aside, denied, then you can find out for yourself. • When you are completely attentive, you see. It is only love that sees - not thought, the mind or the intellect. One has to learn how to look, how to hear. • Q: Could you distinguish between what you mean by the word ‘recognizing’ and ‘being aware’? • Q: How is one to break off a concept that one has carefully built?"
