The intention of this kind of inquiry
… is to allow a subtle, unrehearsed process of observation and learning to unfold.
We begin from a place where we don’t already know: we are informed by the fact of what we are discovering, not from the old information that is conditioning our minds.
This kind of learning is alive: it gathers energy and its own momentum, revealing a very different presence and state of mind.
“Learn to observe not memorise. We have contradiction only when we are not dealing with what is actually going on”
“ What is true can only be found from moment to moment…
To understand the mind you cannot interpret it according to somebody else's idea, but you must observe how your own total mind works. When you know the whole process of it, how it reasons, its desires, motives, ambitions, pursuits, its envy, greed and fear; then the mind can go beyond itself, and when it does there is the discovery of something totally new.
That quality of newness gives an extraordinary passion, a tremendous enthusiasm which brings about a deep inward revolution: and it is this inward revolution which alone can transform the world not any political or economic system.”
J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life
