Preoccupation and security
20 May 1979
Is it possible for us all to think together, see the same thing clearly together, understand together and act together?

On being good
27 May 1979
What is a good society? What is a good man or a woman? What is it to have good relationship? What is it to have a good quality of mind that is not broken up, that is whole, harmonious, well put together, that is healthy?
Can we in this small community live a good life? We create the society; society doesn’t come into being by itself. Human beings by their actions, mischief, dishonesty, greed, envy, violence, have created this society. To be educated is to have a good brain, a good heart, good conduct - all that’s implied in the word ‘good’.

What does it mean to think together?
Thinking together and thinking about something are two different things.
What does it mean to be in communication with each other?
When one is seeking one’s own fulfilment, ambition, security and success, that must inevitably create division.
A mind that is not divisive in itself has a quality of attention and therefore compassion. From that state, what is relationship?
