In Krishnamurti said: "It is only when the mind is not escaping in any form that it is possible to be in direct communion with that thing we call lonliness, the alone, and to have communion with that thing, there must be affection, there must be love.
Krishnamurti suggests that "true relationship" can come into being only when there is self-knowledge of the conditions which divide and islolate individuals and groups. Only by renouncing the self can we understand the problem of lonliness, and truly love. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages. More Details Original Title. Other Editions Friend Reviews.

Profoundly anti-intellectual, this collection of lectures and Socratic dialogues between Krishnamurti and his students attempts to peddle tautologies as profound ideas and perverts more or less normative Buddhist thinking into anti-materialist dogma.
The basic idea of the book is that human existence is loneliness because the fact of your existence necessarily leads to attachments, and attachments separate you from true love, which requires the annihilation of the ego. Well, okay, Yoda, I get it Profoundly anti-intellectual, this collection of lectures and Socratic dialogues between Krishnamurti and his students attempts to peddle tautologies as profound ideas and perverts more or less normative Buddhist thinking into anti-materialist dogma.
Well, okay, Yoda, I get it: life is a veil of suffering. The cheeseburger that can be eaten is not the true cheeseburger! According to this book, reading this book will not help you find connection or understand love because thinking AT ALL only causes you to be lonelier.
Thanks for the advice! What shall I do with my freaking brain, then, J Krish? Thinking is the only thing it's good for! Why don't I just stop breathing, as well, since I'm clearly way too attached to this oxygen. May I have a glass of water, please? Come on, dude. Now I'm going to go shave my head and chant "gorilla gorilla gorilla" at the airport until somebody feeds me a Cinnabon with triple frosting.

It's a compicated read at the beggining if you are merely reading the words, merely thinking that jiddu's words are magical, in my opinion as you start reading it it becomes obvious that you have to experience these words according to your view of the world.
Krishnamurti is not a teacher he is merely a mirror that tells you to look into yourself, in that image that you see reflected you will find, ideas, ideals, prejudices, fears, all of which most of us reject and just conform to the "norm".

I believe he is right in saying we must look deeply into ourselves, and discover for ourselves how we can deal with loneliness, and look for this misterious thing called LOVE. Feb 17, Puri Kencana Putri rated it it was amazing. It may mean complete upheaval; it may break up the family; you may discover that you do not love your wife or husband or children - do you?
But if you still want to find out, you will see that fear is not love, dependence is not love, jealousy is not love, possessiveness and domination are not love, responsibility and duty are not lov "So when you ask what love is, you may be too frightened to see the answer.
But if you still want to find out, you will see that fear is not love, dependence is not love, jealousy is not love, possessiveness and domination are not love, responsibility and duty are not love, self-pity is not love, the agony of not being loved is not love, love is not the opposite of hate any more than humility is the opposite of vanity.
So if you can eliminate all these, not by forcing them but by washing them away as the rain washes the dust of many days from a leaf, then perhaps you will come upon this strange flower which man always hungers after. This one will always strike an inconvenient chord in my heart. Painfully yet beautiful words.

Therevare books and there are books, this book is probably one of the most important I have read in my lifetime. While it adresses the basic issue of every human life, our relationships with self and others it has been particularly relevant to me now.
Maybe that's because at an age over 60 we all tend in some way to review our lives well lived or otherwise. This critical issues of alones versus lonliness, the attached love we all seem to run to in order to avoid that particular suffering and the Therevare books and there are books, this book is probably one of the most important I have read in my lifetime. This critical issues of alones versus lonliness, the attached love we all seem to run to in order to avoid that particular suffering and the places that dance will take us to has been the central core of my life, the sense of the "black hole" were absolute and totally dominant throughout my first 50 years.
The drive to fill that hole having led me into places where no one should ever go and to do things that noone should ever have to learn to live with was something I thought would never change. It was the line of separation, that which made me different, unacceptable, indeed ireemdeemably a force for evil in my own eyes regardless of what the outside of nmy life may have looked like.
It has cahnged as I have finally surrendered to the spiritual nature of my dilemma, I am, always have been and aleways will be powerless in the face of it, and there is nothing"I" can do to fix it.
It is only through my fumbling navigation of the very principles and understandings that Krishnamurti outlines here that has led me to a place where at least now I can see. Starnagley, paradoxically but just as he indicates as I have made my way into the wrold of aloneness has my sense of separation from others;"me' versus "them" has begun to bleed out of me. The operative word is "bleed" for indeed through that process I have bled. The gradual acceptance, not resignation to, of my own suffering has yileded the light to which I must constantly turn in the understanding that I am you and you are me, that my mind, my thought is the barrier and compassion is the answer for me.
Now that has to be born every minute of every day and that always requires the surrender on mind, the self, particularly the wounded self that has driven me like a violent storm through my own life and the lives of those around me. I was a terrible way to live and I inflicted in its throws great harm. I am blessed by the genius and insight of this great man and his constantly compassionate committment to share his understanding with all of us.
If nothing else this book ahd made the path a little clearer and confirmed the direction for me, counterintuitive and frightening though it so often seems Apr 29, Amirtha Shri rated it really liked it. Though our thoughts and emotions are expansive, are they not exclusive and dividing? That's the question that made me lift this book to seek opinions from someone who dauntlessly approaches the heart of abstract matters.
In terms of love, he peels off layer after 'You will know love when the mind is very still and free from its search for gratification and escapes. In terms of love, he peels off layer after layer the preconceived notions and sentiments attached to this term to arrive at an untainted state of being.
As for loneliness, he identifies the 'self' that bolsters this feeling and suggests to dissolve this process of exclusiveness to alleviate or even vanquish it. It is important to sit with these words and observe the impact of these statements to understand how you feel about these concepts and it helps that they are repeated through the compilation of talks and letters.
Sep 30, Scot rated it it was amazing Shelves: spiritual. A brilliant reminder that we do not need a guru, psychoanalyst or even a book to grow, we simply need self-observation. This book is a collection of various lectures and talks that Krishnamurti gave throughout his life focused on one topic that strikes fear in all loneliness and another that is completely misunderstood and taken for granted love. There is no getting over the truth that we are all truly alone, no matter where we live, who we love, or who we surround ourselves with and rather A brilliant reminder that we do not need a guru, psychoanalyst or even a book to grow, we simply need self-observation.
There is no getting over the truth that we are all truly alone, no matter where we live, who we love, or who we surround ourselves with and rather than be deflated by this, we have the opportunity to really dive into our suffering, our egotism, and our selfish desires to see these attachments and move through them. It is then and only then that we can truly find peace and love. Recommended for those that wish to explore more deeply their own feelings of loneliness and not recommended for any that hope to be told the answers.
Feb 06, nzoz rated it it was ok. Krishnamurti believes that relationships are selfish and the only acceptable form of love is unconditional. A must read for the "open relationship" crowd. To me, it seems like he doesn't want to be human.
View Cart Checkout. Allan W. Anderson, San Diego, California, 19 February Krishnamurti offers radically different answers to questions about our relationship with others, and why we do not act with clarity and intelligence. What are the consequences of personal action based on a belief? Why does my effort not produce the results I expect?
Krishnamurti cuts away symbols and false associations in the search for pure truth and perfect freedom. Author: J. What is it that most of us are seeking? What is it that each one of us wants? Probably most of us are seeking some kind of happiness, some kind of peace; in a world that is ridden with turmoil, wars, contention, strife, we want a refuge where there can be some peace. I think that is what most of us want.

Последний месяц был для Лиланда Фонтейна временем больших ожиданий: в агентстве происходило нечто такое, что могло изменить ход истории, и, как это ни странно директор Фонтейн узнал об этом лишь случайно. Три месяца назад до Фонтейна дошли слухи о том, что от Стратмора уходит жена. Он узнал также и о том, что его заместитель просиживает на службе до глубокой ночи и может не выдержать такого напряжения. Несмотря на разногласия со Стратмором по многим вопросам, Фонтейн всегда очень высоко его ценил.
Стратмор сменил положение. Вцепившись в левую створку, он тянул ее на себя, Сьюзан толкала правую створку в противоположном направлении. Через некоторое время им с огромным трудом удалось расширить щель до одного фута.
