Film 8 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966
Why are we discontented, and with what? Being discontented with what is, we develop the idea of what should be. There is conflict between what is and what should be.
The centre in consciousness, the observer, creates a space around itself which is always limited. The center is the accumulation of knowledge and experience. There is no freedom in that space.
Can the mind be intensely alert without experience? Such a mind is the religious mind.
