Five Public Talks

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

1. To look without a concept is to be aware of the observer and the thing observed
20 May 1967

- Violence and sorrow are not limited to the West or the East; it is part of the human structure, psychologically.
- Is it possible to bring about a change radically, a total revolution in the psyche itself, not through time?
- The first and last freedom is when the mind is totally free from concepts and the mechanical process of building a formula.
- It is an art to look, which is much more important than any art in the world, any painting, music or book; because when we can look so totally and completely, being directly in contact, there is an ending.
-Q: If one has cancer, how can one be free from death? !!<Duration: 88 minutes

2. Where there is pleasure there is the shadow of pain
21 May 1967

- The whole movement of living, which is relationship, is a movement in action.
- What is consciousness? When do you say, ‘I am conscious, I am aware, I am attentive’?
- Is there actually a division between the conscious and the unconscious, or it is a total movement, operating all the time?
- The mind that pursues pleasure must inevitably invite its opposite, which is pain. The two go together; they are not separate.
- You cannot see totally when you are making effort.
- Q: If you love your own child, your attention to your child is fairly complete, but if you are a teacher you cannot give attention to all the students.

Duration: 83 minutes

3. Is it possible to renew the mind?
24 May 1967

- When the mind is living through imagination and thought, it is incapable of living in the complete fullness of the present.
- Thought has created time, not chronological time but psychological time. That is, ‘I will be,’ ‘I should be.’
- Is it possible for the brain to be quiet, to give an interval between the old and the new? This interval is the timeless nature in which thought cannot possibly enter.
- That which has continuity is repetitive, which is time. It’s only when time comes to an end there is something new taking place.
- To die every day to every problem, every pleasure, and not carry over any problem at all; so the mind remains tremendously attentive, active, clear.
- Since love is not desire or pleasure, how does one come upon it?
- Q: Is the feeling of responsibility a part of the order and discipline you were talking about?
- Q: Why don’t people get angry with what you are saying?

Duration: 81 minutes

4. Can thought stop?
28 May 1967

- When there is a process of recognition it is the projection of the past. The mind is always functioning within the field of time, which is of memory. Can the mind go beyond that?
- What is pleasure and what is desire?
- How is it possible, without control, subjugation or denying, for thought not to allow itself to interfere?
- When all authority of every kind is put aside, denied, then you can find out for yourself.
- When you are completely attentive, you see. It is only love that sees - not thought, the mind or the intellect. One has to learn how to look, how to hear.
- Q: Could you distinguish between what you mean by the word ‘recognizing’ and ‘being aware’?
- Q: How is one to break off a concept that one has carefully built?

Duration: 72 minutes

5. It is only a very silent mind that can actually see
30 May 1967

- Conflict exists only when there are two opposing things: fear and non-fear, violence and non-violence.
- A mind that is in a state of inquiry is entirely different from a mind that is seeking. Seeking implies effort, conformity, authority and therefore conflict.
- Without space in which there is no boundary, the mind is incapable of coming upon immeasurable reality.
- It is only a silent mind that can perceive, actually see, not a chattering mind, a controlled mind, a mind that is tortured, suppressed, yielding or indulging.
- When one has totally denied the psychological world which man has created, and the psychological structure of society of which we are, then there is space and silence.
- Q: Could you define contemplation and meditation?
- Q: It is not possible ever to observe totally one’s own irrational thoughts.
- Q: What does it mean to stand alone?

Duration: 82 minutes

Three Discussions with Young People

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

6. What does it mean to be totally free?
24 May 1967

- What takes place when one falls in love?
- Why has sex taken on such extraordinary importance?
- How will you know that it is stupid to be a nationalist?
- You see or understand only when the mind is quiet, when you are aware without any choice.
- When I say, ‘I love you,’ I have blocked myself from looking at you. Is it possible to look totally impersonally and yet be completely intimate?
- One takes a drug and has an extraordinary experience. At the base of this is the demand for wider and deeper experiences. Why do you want experience?

Duration: 96 minutes

7. When one observes a fact without knowledge then one can learn
28 May 1967

- Why do we dream at all?
- Isn’t dreaming at night a waste of energy, when the brain needs to be completely at rest?
- When do you actually learn?
- When I learn through Freud about myself I am not observing myself, I am observing the image which Freud has created about me.
- Can you do nothing, psychologically?
- If two people are quarrelling and one stops, what takes place?
- The more we talk together, the more we communicate together, the clearer it becomes.

Duration: 82 minutes

8. Is there such thing as free will?
31 May 1967

- Is freedom partial?
- Why should I be bound to destiny? Born in India with the tremendous cultural traditions, why should I be caught in it?
- Man is more important than the frame into which he is put.
- Is it possible for a human being to free himself from society, psychologically?
- Human beings have to change, and will thought change us?
- Man is society, has created the society in which we live.
- Are you influenced to change from outside or do you change from yourself?
- To change according to a pattern is no change at all.

Duration: 80 minutes
