If he does it's hypocritical because his teachings are often in the form of precise analyses.Jayakanth wrote:You said , "Or, if you are exploring this anxiety in order to understand it fully (not to "fix" it, just to understand its workings), keep it in focus, inquire into it, feel it ... again (and this is key!) without judgment."
Isnt this what krishnmaurthi warns about? This process of Analysis?
There is the state of choiceless awareness of "what is" without judgement or thought; and there is the state of rational thinking/analysis. I think his warning was about letting the second state intrude upon the first, i.e. letting thought/analysis take the "choiceless out of choiceless awareness.
From Krishnamurti's teachings, I'd say: both. When fear arises, you let it arise, feel it, watch it live out its fear-ful life, be aware of it choicelessly, without judgement. (Very hard at first, but it gets easier.) At another time you "step out of choiceless awareness" and think/analyze, dig into your psychological past, figure things out rationally. It's like theory and practice, you need both to come to a deep understanding.Wad abt patterns of fear that arise when they are triggered? If i were to explore them, do i delve into myself and call up the past or do i understand the nature of fear itself?
Questioner: I find it impossible to be aware all the time.
Krishnamurti: Don't be aware all the time! Just be aware in little bits. Please, there is no being aware all the time, that is a dreadful idea! It is a nightmare, this terrible desire for continuity. Just be aware for one minute, for one second, and in that one second of awareness you can see the whole universe.
