Re: Why do I fear loss?

I fear the fear. Fear of it arising again. Fear of not knowing when these thoughts will vanish.

Re: The importance of honouring our needs.

I don't know if the questions you put in your 2nd to last paragraph in your initial post will be fruitful to you or not. If they bring out increased presence then I think they are of value--if they can help you see through false thoughts. But if they increase thought then they might not be helpful....

The importance of honouring our needs.

I realized that I may have been recognizing my needs for fulfilment but not accepting it completely. The way krishnamurthi teaches is that all these egoic needs are illusions. His self inquiries are meant to enable us to realize that. I was reading this article by a psychologist. http://www.huffingt...

Re: On Krishnamurthi : Fragmentation

Today i was at a small social gathering. I didnt know most of the people there. In that situation, I wasnt my self. I was self-conscious and grew fearful when we were supposed to play a game. It was a simple game on hindsight, but due to a memory i had, i felt very anxious. I was afraid that i would...

Re: On Krishnamurthi : Fragmentation

Krishnamurti always looks to the essence, the source. So, rather than take each instance of fear as a separate case and explore it -- you could spend an entire lifetime doing this! -- he urges us to explore and come to understand the nature of fear itself. Once understood, deeply, in body and mind,...
