Five Public Talks

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

1. Can one establish a relationship with reality?
11 May 1968

- A person who would find reality must be completely free of the influence of the word, propaganda and the symbol.
- When you believe, there is fear behind that belief.
- A mind that is afraid can never find light. It may invent a thing called light out of fear, imagine a heaven or hell out of its own darkness, but fear still remains.
- Can thought, which is the very structure of our brain, become quiet? !!<Duration: 65 minutes

2. Is it possible to end thought?
12 May 1968

- Life is something that’s constantly new, challenging us all the time with new demands and new phases. To that challenge we respond according to our old pattern and so there is a contradiction.
- The fundamental question is not how to get rid of fear or violence but whether thought as time can come to an end, so that there is no tomorrow psychologically.
- Can there be a total mutation so that we live at a different dimension altogether?
- You can look only when the mind is completely quiet.
- To look is the greatest of miracles. Do nothing else but give complete attention to looking, at your wife or your husband, your belief, opinions, judgements or evaluations.

Duration: 66 minutes

3. In acting completely there is no fragmentation
18 May 1968

- When pleasure becomes the dominating demand of life then there is constant breaking up of life into compartments, fragments and divisions.
- To be related means to be active in the present, otherwise there is no relationship.
- Why does the human heart carry this burden of sorrow?
- Innocence is not of time, it is the ending of the yesterday. When this ends there is love in relationship.

Duration: 55 minutes

4. This light in oneself
19 May 1968

- To lay the foundation for meditation one must understand what living and dying are.
- Truth can never be experienced, that is the beauty of it. It is always new, never what has happened yesterday.
- To follow implies not only the denying of one’s own clarity, investigation, integrity and honesty, but it also implies that your motive in following is reward. Truth is not a reward.
- In the denial of disorder there is order.
- Beauty is not man-made. Beauty is where there is order.
- There can be order only when there is total self-denial, when the ‘me’ has no importance whatsoever. The ending of the ‘me’ is the only meditation.

Duration: 51 minutes

5. The meaning of life
22 May 1968

- To act according to a principle, belief or ideology is the fundamental distortion of energy.
- Is there action without formula?
- You cannot possibly invite reality, the heavens and the beauty of the earth. All you have to do is to leave the window open and let that beauty and love come. To leave the window open you must have order and therefore deny the total disorder of this society.
- Q: What is the best attitude towards hostility and brutality?.
- Q: If we understand listening with our whole being, does that mean that we understand everything else you say?
- Q: Is it better not to do a kindness when it is done only for duty without love?

Duration: 66 minutes

Four Discussions with Young People

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

6. When I say I must know myself, what is ‘myself’?
14 May 1968

- When we say, ‘I know,’ what does that mean? What does ‘knowledge’ mean and what does ‘self’ mean?
- Who is the entity that is observing the conditioned state? Is the observer different from the thing observed?
- Is it possible for human beings to break through conditioning?
- It may not be important at all to know yourself.
- Knowing the cause of something is not going to help you to be free of it.
- Why has thought become so important?
- Can I look with such complete quietness of the mind that I am in direct relationship?

Duration: 83 minutes

7. To change without effort
16 May 1968

- Why does a human being think about himself?
- ‘Don’t be committed to anything.’ That’s a challenge. If you listen to that challenge with silence then there is a change, even a mutation biologically.
- Can thought be quiet?
- When I look at something with the light of silence, I see things very clearly, there is no conflict or fear - there is freedom. It is then possible to live without conflict.

Duration: 87 minutes

8. Thought operates in the present having its root in the past
21 May 1968

- Why has man throughout the world given so much importance to thought?
- Is there thinking without word, imagination or symbol?
- Is love between two human beings the result of a thought which cultivates a certain feeling?
- Is it possible for me to be free of anger and jealousy?
- When the limited quality of the conditioned brain doesn’t operate there is a totally different kind of looking.
-Love is something that is not contaminated or touched by thought.

Duration: 76 minutes

9. It is only in freedom that there can be love
23 May 1968

- When there is a response to a challenge, is that response free, in the sense unconditioned, or are all our responses conditioned?
- There is only one challenge, which we translate differently according to our conditioning. The challenge is: be free.
- Is there freedom from the mechanical habits that the brain has developed?
- To be free I have to ask if there can be an end to thought.
- Can you look at a flower without thinking?

Duration: 83 minutes
