Content:

1. What is truth and what is reality
18 May 1975

- What is truth and what is reality?
- Anything that thought thinks about or reflects upon or projects, that is reality. And that reality has nothing to do with truth.
- The art of seeing is to place reality where it is, and not move that in order to get truth. You can’t get truth.
- How am I to empty that consciousness and yet retain knowledge - otherwise I couldn’t function - and reach a state which will comprehend reality?

Duration: 70 minutes

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

2. Seeing what ‘is’ is action
24 May 1975

- If truth is something totally different from reality then what place has action in daily life, in relation to truth and reality?
- Seeing what ‘is’ is action.
- What place has love in truth?
- When I separate you, in that separation love cannot exist.
- How are you to convey the sense of truth to a student?
- As long as I live in the field of reality, which has its own energy, that energy will not free me.
- When the mind is empty, when the mind is nothing, not a thing, in that there is perception.

Duration: 122 minutes

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

3. Thought cannot bring about an insight
31 May 1975

- Is there a thinking without the word?
- The action brought about by thought into the investigation of an analysis is always incomplete.
- Insight is complete. It is not fragmented as thought is. So thought cannot bring about an insight.
- I must have an insight into conditioning otherwise I can’t dissolve it.
- What takes place when I have an insight that the observer is the observed?
- In nothingness there is complete security and stability.

Duration: 81 minutes

14 June 1975

- Why has desire become such an extraordinarily important thing in life?
- How does desire arise from perception?
- Can I desire truth?
- Is the energy of nothingness different from the energy of things?
- Is that nothingness a hypothesis, a theory, a verbal structure, or truth?
- In dying to the reality only then there is nothingness.

Duration: 87 minutes

5. Attention implies that there is no centre
22 June 1975

- Consciousness, because it is in constant movement, has never found an energy which is not contradictory, which is not produced by desire and thought.
- Can thought ever see its own movement and the futility of its own movement?
- Attention implies that there is no centre.
- Is there a perception, a seeing outside the space which is part of consciousness?
- There are two human beings, one gets conditioned and the other doesn’t. Why? How has it happened the other doesn’t get conditioned?
- How does this perception which is beyond attention, beyond awareness, beyond concentration come about?
- Thought is rather superficial, it’s merely a very small part of the operation of the brain.
- Can consciousness be completely empty of its content?
- Order and disorder

Duration: 126 minutes

28 June 1975

- Can thought naturally cease?

- Facing the truth of death
- Krishnamurti’s ‘process’ and early years.

- There is something really tremendously mysterious.
- Knowledge is becoming the curse.
- When the mind, with all the confusion, is nothing, not a thing, then perhaps there is the other.

8. What is the substance of thought?
25 July 1975

- What is the basic reason for thought to be fragmented?
- What is the substance of thought? Is it a material process, a chemical process?
- There is a total perception, which is truth. That perception acts in the field of reality. That action is not the product of thought.
- Thought has no place when there is total perception.
- Thought never acknowledges to itself that it is mechanical.
- Total perception can only exist when the centre is not.

Duration: 105 minutes

9. Is there in the brain anything untouched by culture?
6 August 1975

- Can there be a total perception which completely heals the brain?

- Does speech come before thought?
- Is it possible to say something without the operation of thought?
- Is there in the brain anything untouched by culture?
- Is attention a conscious process?
- Is love the factor of profound change?
- You explain all this, and you say that whatever the damaged brain - which is the result of thought and tradition and all the rest of it - whatever it does will produce further damage. So, because you point it out, I realise that. That is the first necessity - I realise it. Then, after I’ve realised it, you talk to me at a depth which thought has not touched. You planted a seed.

Duration: 110 minutes

11 October 1975

- Thought and the brain.
- Can the brain free itself from all self-delusion?
- Why has the self become important?
- Can there be only sensation, thought, and no desire?
- Can desire - which brings illusion, self-deception and all the complications of changing desires - can the root of desire be dissipated?
- What prevents one from having a real insight? That is, seeing the truth of desire and therefore end it. Is it that we have never asked this question?
- When there is no desire whatsoever then there is a total revolution, and that will affect the consciousness of man.
- Is there a movement, an action that keeps the brain pure, uncontaminated?
