Seven Public Talks

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

1. Can the mind change radically outside of time?
15 July 1973

- Can my mind look not only at particular problems but at the world problem?
- Each of us must bring about transformation in himself and so in his relationship to the world.
- Can structures based on thought change the mind?
- Authority in any form denies truth.
- Will time and knowledge bring transformation?
- When you listen to a statement do you draw a conclusion, which means thought is in action?
- If there is no image or word, is there thinking?
- Intelligence is to see the movement of knowledge.
Questions from the audience followed the talk.

Duration: 77 minutes

2. Can the mind choicelessly see its conditioning?
17 July 1973

- How can outward change be brought about in relation to inward change?
- If each of us has a motive can we share a problem?
- If there is no freedom from conditioning can there be a transformation of the mind?
- Can the mind be aware of its conditioning and observe it choicelessly?
- Has the mind the energy to explore without distorting the content of conditioning?
- Is the mind different from its content? Does division between the observer and the observed bring about conflict?
Questions from the audience followed the talk.

Duration: 85 minutes

3. Can thought explore consciousness?
19 July 1973

- Not to be involved in the world and yet live in it.
- Is freedom from conditioning brought about by thought or is it a non-movement of thought?
- Analysis and control imply time. What is time?
- Can the mind be free of violence without the movement of thought?
- Can there be no interference of thought with regard to ‘what is’?
- The ‘what is’ is violence, the result of thought. When non-movement meets thought what takes place?
- In the very observation of ‘what is’ there is instant action.
- Can the mind observe without the image?
- What is the mind if there is no thought?
Questions from the audience followed the talk.

Duration: 85 minutes

4. Can thought reveal the meaning of life?
22 July 1973

- Is purpose the same as meaning?
- Not being able to go beyond boredom and loneliness do we make pleasure important? Is pleasure the deep meaning of life?
- Desire and pleasure.
- Why does the mind insist on and pursue pleasure?
- There is contact and sensation. Need there be desire?
- How can you discard the beauty of the earth or the beauty of the bough of a tree?
- What is the quality of a mind that has seen the whole structure of pleasure and desire?
- Can the mind realize there is nothing permanent?

Duration: 73 minutes

5. What is the action of total inaction?
24 July 1973

- What is the relationship between action and the realization of the meaning of life?
- Can I observe the dreadful burden of ideals and therefore let it wither away completely?
- Is there an action totally unrelated to the disorder of pleasure, character, belief and will? When the mind sees the falseness of that, is there a ‘me’?
- What is the action of the ‘non-me’?
- Can a sense of wholeness be brought about by thought, investigation, searching and asking?
- From the perception of truth, wisdom arises. Intelligence is the daughter of wisdom.
Questions from the audience followed the talk.

Duration: 70 minutes

6. Can death be brought into the field of the known?
26 July 1973

- What is sorrow and is there ever an end to it?
- Can one be aware of physical pain and not be caught in it psychologically?
- Do we act from hurts we are not aware of? Can hurts be wiped away so that the mind functions clearly, sanely and wholly?
- If you understand one hurt completely haven’t you understood all the other hurts?
- Can analysis solve hurt?
- Self-knowing is the ending of sorrow and the beginning of wisdom.
- What place has love in relationship and action?
- Can I die to all my attachments while living?
- Can you see a sunset with all its glory, delight in it and die to it?

Duration: 76 minutes

7. What is religion and what is meditation?
29 July 1973

- Do I understand the statement ‘I am the world and the world is me’ only as an idea?
- Do religion and meditation have any significance in daily living?
- Can thought, which is time, ever be still?
- When one is aware of the movement of the self in all its activities, out of that comes a mind that is completely still.
- Why do I want to express something new, creative, put energy into words, pictures or stone?
- The new is timeless, the summation of all energy.
- A new kind of energy must be released, instantly putting aside the activities of the self.
Questions from the audience followed the talk.

Seven Public Discussions

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

8. How does one observe?
1 August 1973

- Q: What is the observed without the observer?
- The observer is the conditioned entity of memory, tradition, knowledge and experience.
- I observe through images, symbols and words, put together by thought.
- Thought has created the culture and that culture has shaped my mind.
- Can I observe the mountain without the past – the observer, the word and the image?
- Naming means comparing, conforming to the past, strengthening it, and creating a duality as the past and the present.
- Can the mind observe ‘what is’ without giving it a name and without any movement of thought?
- Look at the fact without a single image and see what an extraordinary change takes place. It is like having a young mind.

Duration: 81 minutes

9. Choice, will and action
2 August 1973

- What is an action uninfluenced by the environment?
- Thought moving away from confusion is an escape. Where there is no movement of thought is there confusion?
- When there is total confusion, inaction is complete action. Action then is a movement which is the outcome of the perception of truth. Out of that perception there is intelligence.
- It is the intelligence born of wisdom that acts. It opens the door to a daily life that is completely simple.

Duration: 80 minutes

10. Relationship without dependence
3 August 1973

- Q: What is the relationship of a human being who is not at all dependent?
- I depend on you because I am lonely, insufficient, frightened and I need a companion.
- I need you to love me because I don’t know what love is. I cannot afford to lose you therefore I must possess you.
- Loneliness destroys relationship.
- Loneliness is a form of isolation which the mind has cultivated through ambition. When there are no activities of ambition is there loneliness?
- I have created society through my ambition and that ambition has brought a sense of isolation.
- How am I, who sees the result of ambition, to live with you who are ambitious?
- In the great depth of sufficiency there is no loneliness or ambition. That is love.

Duration: 79 minutes

11. Fear is a destructive poison
4 August 1973

- Can the mind ever be free of fear?
- Fear is a dreadful thing, it paralyzes you, makes you ugly, brings about violence physically and inwardly, and you become superstitious and accept illusion.
- Can you observe fear, investigate it and deal with the whole of it?
- What is the basic movement of fear, the root of it?
- The movement of thought as time brings fear.
- Thought can never be still. What is the quality of a mind that sees thought cannot stop?

Duration: 105 minutes

12. Are you aware?
5 August 1973

- Q: Can one observe and go beyond oneself?
- ‘Myself’ is the result of time, thousands of years of experience and knowledge.
- The past has conditioned the mind to become what it is now, dependent on stimuli, running away from sorrow, battling and violent.
- I am the world and the world is me.
- What makes me unaware?
- Is awareness different from the observer?
- The observer is the past. In awareness there is no observer at all.
- A mind that seeks truth must be free of the observer. Out of that comes a flower that blossoms in goodness, an extraordinary movement of love.

Duration: 82 minutes

13. Are life and death two separate things?
6 August 1973

- Q: What makes the mind cling to something transient?
- For most of us death means the ending of life. Is that what we are frightened of?
- Have you inquired into a life that has been endlessly occupied?
- It is the fear of everybody to be nothing. All problems arise from that.
- If the mind is not occupied at all, there is then only observation and nothing else.
- Life, love and death are the same thing. A mind that is not in conflict is free from death.

Duration: 94 minutes

14. Where there is intelligence there is order
7 August 1973

- Q: Can the mind ever come upon something sacred?
- How does order in the mind act in the world? How is intelligence to earn a livelihood?
- Knowledge breeds disorder. Learning must be the constant renewal of observation.
- Inquiry must be sensitive to deception.
- Intelligence is never contradictory.
- Is there anything that is holy, untouched by the human mind?
- The mind starts with inquiry, not knowing a thing about what is sacred, with no motive, no will, no ‘me’ and no distraction of thought.
- The mind in meditation is intelligence in action.
- Nothingness is the most sacred thing.
