Jiddu Krishnamurti on Watching Thought


Questioner: What is one to do when one notices the sunset and at the same time thought is coming into it?
Jiddu Krishnamurti : What is one to do? Please understand the significance of the question. That is, you see the sunset, thought interferes with it, and then you say “What is one to do?, Who is the questioner who says “What is one to do?” Is it thought that says what am I to do? Do you understand the question?

Let me put it this way. There is the sunset, the beauty of it, the extraordinary colour, the feeling of it, the love of it; then thought comes along and I say to myself: “Here it is, what am I to do?” Do listen to it carefully, do go into it. Is it not thought also that says “What am I to do?” The “I” who says “What am I to do?”, is the result of thought. So thought, seeing what is interfering with this beauty, says: “What am I to do?”

Don’t do anything! (Laughter) If you do something, you bring conflict into it. But when you see the sunset and thought comes in, be aware of it. Be aware of the sunset and the thought that comes into it. Don’t chase thought away be choicelessly aware of this whole thing: the sunset and thought coming into it.

Then you will find, if you are so aware, without any desire to suppress thought, to struggle against the interference of thought, if you don’t do any of those things then thought becomes quiet. Because it is thought itself that is saying “What am I to do?” That is one of the tricks of thought. Don’t fall into the trap, but observe this whole structure of what is happening.

About mr Sarmoung

Andrea Dandolo je pisac i istražitelj razvoja svijesti i duhovnosti uključen u razotkrivanje drevnih učenja s ciljem olakšavanja unutarnjeg razvoja ljudskih bića. Jedan od načina kojima se time bavi je i kroz blog koji je preveden na engleski, španjolski i od nedavno hrvatski. Od rane mladosti je u svijetu duhovnosti i rada na sebi sudjelujući u radu grupa koje potječu direktno od Gurdjieffa, tj koje su bile vođene od strane samog Gurdjieffa U skladu sa drevnim znanjima, naglašava razvoj svjesnosti kao primarno sredstvo za psihološku transformaciju i duhovnu osvještenost individualaca. Karakteristike sistema koji predlaže su jednostavan jezik i moderni prijevod drevnih učenja kao i njihove praktične primjene u svakodnevnome životu. Njegov blog čitaju ljudi iz svih krajeva svijeta. Samorazvoj je ne religiozni i ne dogmatski put; sastoji se primarno od naprednog dostizanja viših stanja svijesti, p prisustva i konačno od ostvarivanja svoje prave intimne prirode, koja je poznata u mnogim tradicijama pod imenima poput esencija, duša, biće. Kroz takav razvoj individualna osoba ulazi u nove dimenzije svijesti koje mu omogućuju da vidi stvarnost sakrivenu iza iluzija. To mu omogućuje kreiranje osobnosti neovisne i otporne na vanjske situacije i vanjska uvjetovanja. Posljedice takvog razvoja su oštra inteligencija, izvanredni kreativni kapaciteti, ravnoteža i smirenost u svakoj situaciji i stabilno stanje višeg stanja svijesti koje je poznato u drevnim tradicijama pod nazivom “buđenje”.
