Is It Possible to Renew the Mind? - Amsterdam 1967 - Public Talk 3

Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Is it possible to renew the mind? - 24 May 1967 • When the mind is living through imagination and thought, it is incapable of living in the complete fullness of the present. • Thought has created time, not chronological time but psychological time. That is, ‘I will be,’ ‘I should be.’ • Is it possible for the brain to be quiet, to give an interval between the old and the new? This interval is the timeless nature in which thought cannot possibly enter. • That which has continuity is repetitive, which is time. It’s only when time comes to an end there is something new taking place. • To die every day to every problem, every pleasure, and not carry over any problem at all; so the mind remains tremendously attentive, active, clear. • Since love is not desire or pleasure, how does one come upon it? • Q: Is the feeling of responsibility a part of the order and discipline you were talking about? • Q: Why don’t people get angry with what you are saying?"
