Duality when inquiring.

If i were to inquire into the nature of hurt, and I ask , " Who is it that is hurt? Or what is is that is hurt" Arent i creating a duality there. When i inquire, it is the false self that inquires. The false self that wants an outcome from the inquiry. It wants to dissolve the all the hurts. Any adv...

Re: On Krishnamurthi : Fragmentation

If you feel a particular fear and bring presence to it that is very helpful. But if you continue to work with different fears over time you will see they have the same taste underneath. If you remain sharp you can sense this. With more experience, and bringing more surrender (melting) to the situat...

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,...

Re: Ate there bits of Eckhar T teachings that you disagree w

Other than him, who have you listened to? And what other ways are there to be present? I like Jed Mckenna because he is direct and no-nonsense. And all he said has been true so far in my experience. I like John Sherman because he clarifies the technique Nisargaddatta and Ramana have suggested. Like...

Re: Ate there bits of Eckhar T teachings that you disagree w

I am very thankful to Tolle because he got me started. He showed me there was another possibility. I thank him for that but I moved on from his teaching because I wanted to listen to people who had actually worked on their awakening. There isn't anything I disagree with him in a big way. I think th...

On Krishnamurthi : Fragmentation

Hi guys, I have a question relating to fragmentation. I was listening to one of krishnamurthi's talks on fear and he talks about how we fragment all of our fears when we try to deal with them. He says we need to understand the whole movement of fear. What is wrong with doing that and is dealing with...

Re: how to watch the thinker?

Ive got a question. Tolle says tot watch the obeserver in TPON. But if we are the observer of our thoughts, isnt that being present? But if we are aware of the observer, is that a deeper awareness?
