It is Only a Very Silent Mind That Can Actually See - Amsterdam 1967 - Public Talk 5

Jiddu Krishnamurti

It is only a very silent mind that can actually see - 30 May 1967 - Conflict exists only when there are two opposing things: fear and non-fear,violence and non-violence. - A mind that is in a state of inquiry is entirely di erent from a mind that isseeking. Seeking implies effort, conformity, authority and therefore conflict. - Without space in which there is no boundary, the mind is incapable of comingupon immeasurable reality. - It is only a silent mind that can perceive, actually see, not a chattering mind, acontrolled mind, a mind that is tortured, suppressed, yielding or indulging. - When one has totally denied the psychological world which man has created,and the psychological structure of society of which we are, then there is spaceand silence. - Q: Could you de ne contemplation and meditation? - Q: It is not possible ever to observe totally one's own irrational thoughts. - Q: What does it mean to stand alone?
