An intelligence in which there is complete security

Public Talk 1 - Ojai, California,USA - 2 April 1977

Is there any security, psychologically, at all?

When you try to find psychological security in a nation, that nation is different from another nation, therefore naturally there is division.

Part of the consciousness of man is the demand for, and attachment to, a fragment, in which he hopes to find security. Complete transformation of that fragment, in which man has invested, can only come about when there is intelligence, which is perception.

The source of conflict

Public Talk 2 - Ojai, California,USA - 3 April 1977

It is only in the unoccupied mind that a new seed of learning can take place.

Is it possible to live a life without a single effort? If there is effort there is no peace.

Our whole consciousness, or most of it, is conditioned to accept a life of constant struggle. We want to achieve, to become, to play a certain part, to fulfil, which all implies the denial of ‘what is’ and the acceptance of ‘what should be’.

Can you put away the opposite and just look at violence, which is the fact? The non-violence is not a fact.

Where there is absolute order there is no conflict.

How does one transform oneself?

Public Discussion 1 - Ojai, California,USA - 5 April 1977

How does one start to bring about a deep, radical psychological revolution?

Change implies a continuity of ‘what is’, modified, whereas transformation is something entirely different: the ending of ‘what is’.

If you are aware that you are caught in a directional movement, how do you end that movement?

What is relationship?

The relationship of experience and thought

Public Discussion 2 - Ojai, California,USA - 7 April 1977

Q: Will thought and experiencing always remain, or appear to be as opposites, or is there an understanding which can bridge this gap?

Is there a thinking without words?

Thought can never realise anything new because it is the response of memory, the old. There can be the new only when thought stops.

Is 'relationship' between two images relationship?

Why does thought seek permanency?

Can man radically transform himself psychologically?

Public Talk 3 - Ojai, California,USA - 9 April 1977

Observation implies no choice.

Is it possible to be free of the desire for power?

Desire arises through perception, through contact, through sensation, and thought. Thought then creates the image.

If you see the importance and urgency of the fact that as long as you have an image you are going to be hurt, then you never create an image.

What is the root of fear?

Time ceases when there is only ‘what is’.

The art of listening, seeing, learning and living

Public Talk 4 - Ojai, California,USA - 10 April 1977

We are so full of our own conclusions, experiences, problems, judgements that we have no space in which to listen.

The art of seeing is to see things as they are, not as you wish to see them.

The art of learning implies freedom to observe, to listen without prejudice, without argumentation, without any emotional or romantic responses.

Why has man given pleasure such extraordinary importance?

Why have we made pleasure more dominant than love?

To put pleasure, enjoyment and joy in their right place is the art of living.

As long as your relationship is based on remembrance of things of the past, then you are not related.

Education and conditioning

Public Discussion 3 - Ojai, California,USA - 12 April 1977

What is the intention, the meaning of education?

What is the relationship between the educator and the student?

There is no teacher separate from the taught. The teacher isn’t merely one who gives information, but one who is deeply concerned with the student, which means he is concerned with himself as well.

What does it mean to be conditioned?

How can the conditioned teacher talk about the unconditioned state?

There is no temporary happiness, no temporary enlightenment, no temporary glory. Either it is complete or not. It is never fragmentary.

What do you do with your children who are attracted to violence?

Intellect and intelligence

Public Discussion 4 - Ojai, California,USA - 14 April 1977

What is the intellect?

Is thought mechanical?

If thought is fragmentary, and the intellect also fragmentary, is intelligence part of this fragmentation?

Intelligence is the capacity to see the truth that thought is limited. It can only come into being when thought has its right place.

When there is no ‘me’, attention is intelligence.

Can you look at yourself without any previous conclusions?

Love and death

Public Talk 5 - Ojai, California,USA - 16 April 1977

When there is fear, is there love?

Is attachment love?

What is the relationship of love to suffering?

The more intense the challenge, the greater the energy demanded to meet it. Sorrow is this challenge. If you respond to it by escaping from it, seeking comfort from it, then you are dissipating the energy that you need to meet the challenge.

A man who suffers does not know what love is.

Continuity is part of the degenerating process of man, whereas when there is an ending to continuity something new can take place.

One asks: what happens after death? We are asking quite a different question: what is before death, which is your life?

What is the significance of meditation?

Public Talk 6 - Ojai, California,USA - 17 April 1977

When there is no observer and jealousy occurs, it blossoms and then ends, like a flower that blooms, withers and dies away. As long as you’re fighting, resisting or rationalising, you’re giving life to it.

Is there is an action which is whole and never contradictory, therefore an action that does not bring about tension, division?

Meditation is the attention in which there is no registration psychologically. Out of that comes complete silence, because thought has come to an end. Thought functions only where it is absolutely necessary.

Silence demands space in the whole structure of consciousness.
