Saanen 1978 - Public Talk 7 - If you are not occupied, are you nothing?
You cannot possibly look objectively, without any direction and motive if you are consumed with your own importance, ambitions and problems.
We have divided sleeping and waking, which may be entirely wrong. We have never inquired into the state of the mind that is not sleeping.
Why is the mind occupied so endlessly?
Can you be nothing, that which you actually are?
Humility comes into being when you understand the nature of power.
The movement of meditation is to live in daily life without measurement. The movement of thought is measure.
What is awareness and what is attention?
When you put everything in order there is no effort.
This channel is managed by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, UK, and by the Krishnamurti Foundation of America.
The role of the foundations was described by Krishnamurti when he said, 'The foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities... nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person.'
We maintain extensive archives of Krishnamurti's original works and all four Krishnamurti foundations are actively engaged in the publication of material in various forms.
Our videos contain thousands of subtitles in more than 25 languages, translated by volunteers from all over the world. If you would like to help us with translating subtitles, please contact us at [email protected]
