Questioner: i am a man that is married a few kids. I have resided instead a dissipated life in search of enjoyment, but a reasonably civilized life too, and I also’ve produced success from it financially.
Nevertheless now i am center aged and am feeling worried, not merely about my children but in addition in regards to the real means the entire world goes. I am maybe perhaps perhaps not directed at brutality or violent emotions, and I also have actually constantly considered that forgiveness and compassion will be the vital things in life. Without these man becomes subhuman. Therefore I should like to ask you what love is if I may. Can there be actually anything? Compassion should be section of it, but I always believe that love is one thing much vaster, and whenever we could explore it together maybe i ought to then make my entire life into one thing worthwhile before it really is far too late. I have really arrived at ask that one thing what exactly is love?
Krishnamurti: Before we start to get into this we ought to be very clear that the term isn’t the thing, the description isn’t the described, because any quantity of description, but subdued and clever, will likely not start the center to your immensity of love. This we should comprehend, and never just stay glued to terms: words are helpful for interaction, however in referring to something which is truly non spoken we should begin a communion us feel and realize the same thing at the same time, with a fullness of mind and heart between us, so that both of. Otherwise we shall be using terms. How can I approach this actually extremely subdued thing that can not be moved by the brain? We should get instead hesitatingly. Shall we first see just what it isn’t, after which possibly we might have the ability to see just what it’s? Through negation we possibly may come upon the good, but simply to follow the positive results in assumptions and conclusions which result in unit. You’re asking just exactly what love is. Our company is saying we possibly may come we know what it is not upon it when. Something that brings about an unit, a separation, just isn’t love, for in that there is certainly conflict, strife and brutality.
Questioner: What would you suggest by a division, a separation that brings about strife just what do you realy suggest because of it?
Krishnamurti: idea with its nature that is very is. It really is believed that seeks pleasure and holds it. It really is believed that cultivates desire. Questioner: Will you choose to go into desire much more? Krishnamurti: there was the watching of a home, the impression from it, then there is the effort to get it that it is lovely, then there is the desire to own it and to have pleasure. All this work comprises the centre, and this centre could be the reason for unit. This centre may be the sense of a “me”, that is the reason for unit, since this extremely sense of “me” could be the sense of separation. Individuals have called this the ego and all sorts of types of other names the “lower self” in the place of some notion of a “higher self” but there is however no need certainly to be complicated about any of it; it is extremely easy. Where there is certainly the centre, which will be the sensation of “me”, which with its tasks isolates it self, there was division and resistance. And all sorts of this is basically the procedure of idea. Then when you may well ask what is love, it isn’t with this centre. Love is maybe not pleasure and discomfort, nor hate nor violence in virtually any type.
