Why Do We Want to Dominate Or Be Subservient to Another? - Ojai 1949 - Public Talk 11

Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Why do we want to dominate or be subservient to another? - 20 August 1949 • Why is it that we dominate, consciously or unconsciously? • To submit oneself to another is the negative form of domination. We shall not be able to solve this problem by thinking in terms of opposites. • Is not domination a process of isolation, which denies relationship? • Can there be relationship between two people if there is any sense of domination or submissiveness? • Q: Is not the experience of the past a help towards freedom and right action in the present? • Q: Is my believing in survival after death a hindrance to liberation through self- knowledge? • Q: Why is it certain individuals identify themselves with you or with your state of being and thereby gain authority for themselves?"
