When the Mind is Completely Quiet, How Can There Be Time? - Gstaad 1965 - Small Group Discussion 6

Jiddu Krishnamurti

"When the mind is completely quiet, how can there be time? - 29 August 1965 • What does time mean to you, as a human being? • Is there such thing as existence? • Quietness has come because I have understood the nature of time, function, thought and pleasure. • What takes place when there is great intensity? • Thought has a movement in function. Here there is no movement which thought can recognise, because thought is not coming into this at all. • When time comes to an end, is there distance and space? • If you look at the mountain without the layer of thought as function, as the experiencer, what is space? • When there is no experiencer, no thinker, in that stillness is there time? • Time exists only when there is an observer."
