Seven Public Discussions

--------------------------------------------------------

8. The observer and the observed
2 August 1972

- Q: How can I learn about myself?
- I want to learn about myself without conclusion because conclusion prevents looking at the fact.
- There is the observer and the thing observed. When there is an observer there must be division and conflict.
- I am not a harmonious whole, I am fragmented because I hate and love, I am ambitious and greedy.
- The observer is the cause of division. How is the observer not to divide himself?
- Can the mind respond totally to every challenge so that there is no conflict and therefore no observer?

Duration: 93 minutes

9. The problem of existence
3 August 1972

- Q: What is the factor of distortion in life?
- Why does a human being who wants to live a harmonious life gradually go to pieces?
- What is it that goes wrong? Is it duality: the good and the bad, love and hate?
- Are there opposites psychologically, or is there only one factor?
- A mind that is acting in the past or in the future, that is caught in nationalism or religious beliefs, contributes to war.

Duration: 81 minutes

10. Total attention
4 August 1972

- Q: Can one sustain total attention?
- When you observe the mountains, the trees or yourself with sufficient attention and energy, the observer with all its conditioning is absent.
- Can one maintain this sense of total attention continuously?
- Be aware of inattention. Awareness of inattention is attention.
- We compare, measure, conform and identify with ideals.
- The more we identify with something that gives pleasure the more we are attached to it.
- What takes place when there is no identification? We then deal with facts and that gives tremendous vitality.

Duration: 90 minutes

11. Fragmentary action and total action
5 August 1972

- Discussion with young people
- How does youth respond to the modern challenge?
- Young people live and act fragmentarily. Do you see that this is unintelligent action?
- How is the mind to acquire an intelligence that will act intelligently in all things?
- Do you see for yourself the challenge that the house is burning, politically, religiously, socially? How do you respond? Do you see it right away, non-verbally?
- Why do we see things in words first? Words are ideas, thoughts, formulas which then become a remembrance.
- There is an action which is totally complete when there is no ideation or prejudice. Being young, can you listen with a mind that is young?

Duration: 81 minutes

12. Conclusions prevent looking
6 August 1972

- Q: Is it possible to learn what observation is?
- Most of us live in ideas, beliefs and concepts. Why does the mind create images, words, opinions and judgements?
- The mind is lazy. It is easier to live with an image than with a fact. How am I to stop image-making?
- Looking at a tree as though for the first time, its beauty brings tears to your eyes.
- See the hills and shadows as you have never seen them before. See your friend, husband or wife for the first time.
- See yourself without any image and realize that you are nothing. In that there is vast beauty. Then you will know what truth is.

Duration: 90 minutes

13. The sacred in life
7 August 1972

- Q: What is the significance of sleep, death, dreams and meditation?
- If life during the day is orderly, the brain is absolutely quiet. Sleep then is without dreams and when the brain wakes up it has vitality.
- To see clearly the mind must be quiet. How is thought to be quiet?
- The mind empty of thought can use thought and live with thought in harmony. This is meditation.
- That which is sacred is the moment when thought is not, the quality of mind that is completely empty.
- Out of emptiness, space, silence thought can operate.

Duration: 91 minutes

14. Are you aware of your conditioning?
8 August 1972

- Is time needed to be free of conditioning?
- We use time as measure, both outwardly and inwardly. Is time necessary for psychological understanding or to be free from habit?
- The mind is conditioned religiously, psychologically and socially. Does it take time to break down conditioning?
- Our life is based on conditioning and becomes mechanical.
- We don’t want to go beyond the narrow field of conditioning and in that lies sorrow.
- Is it possible at one glance to see the poisonous nature of all conditioning?
