This is what everyone throughout the world is attempting to do. And I, for whom you have been preparing for eighteen years, now say that you must be free of all these things, free from your complications, your entanglements. He did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday lives, of the problems of living in modern society with its violence and corruption, of the individual's search for security and happiness, and the need for humankind to free itself from inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt, and sorrow. Acknowledged as one of the greatest religious teachers of this or any other age, the late J. It doesn't really matter what we're thinking, thinking is thinking.
I think you make a good point. By their number we shall judge whether what you say is true or false. I'd been running simply to get healthy and have fun out on the trails since 2009. Of what use is it to have thousands who do not understand, who are fully embalmed in prejudice, who do not want the new, but would rather translate the new to suit their own sterile, stagnant selves? It can clarify for you how society itself might be transformed if only the ideas contained in this book were propagated, not as a religion, but as a guide to something much better than merely a new type of secular progressivism. And this not because of authority, not because of salvation, but because you really understand, and hence are capable of living in the eternal. More to the point, the understanding is actually unnecessary. By the Oberg Mountain aid station I was struck by how warm and humid it had been for roughly six of the first 7.
However I figured that it might be close enough that I decided not to stop at the Oberg support area and utilize my drop bag -- filled with my own food and drink and a change of socks or, if needed, shoes -- and instead just fuel up for a few minutes and be on my way, which I did. But to go beyond that. I have no disciples, no apostles, either on earth or in the realm of spirituality. Truth is narrowed down and made a plaything for those who are weak, for those who are only momentarily discontented. And though thou wert of the race of the hot-tempered, or of the voluptuous, or of the fanatical, or the vindictive; All thy passions in the end became virtues, and all thy devils angels.
I will tell you for what reason I do this; not because I desire a following, not because I desire a special group of special disciples. Let your peace be a victory! He might then have returned to anonymity in India but as it was he continued to talk, always on the same themes, up until his death in 1986. One does not want to be deceived, under the supposition that it is injurious, dangerous, or fatal to be deceived. I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. First of all, as we said the other day, the answer is not outside the question. You will have no following, people will no longer listen to you. Below is the full text of the talk he gave on that occasion.
It must be stationary, it must have no movement. K says there is no path to truth. At this point I knew my finishing time would be at the slow end of my prediction range of between five and a half and seven and a half hours, and I just wanted to be able to finish my first 50K trail race, hopefully under the cutoff time of eight hours. Drinking cold water and eating an energy bar and resting for a few minutes felt luxuriously great, and after cheering on other runners as they came in we returned to our cozy room on the shores of Lake Superior at just down the hillside. What do you mean by consciousness? Because I am free, unconditioned, whole, not the part, not the relative, but the whole Truth that is eternal, I desire those, who seek to understand me, to be free, not to follow me, not to make out of me a cage which will become a religion, a sect. You think and hope that another can, by his extraordinary powers--a miracle—transport you to this realm of eternal freedom which is Happiness. Again, I maintain that no organization can lead man to spirituality.

The climbs weren't as steep as I recalled from a snowy late October run from Lutsen to Oberg Mountain and back I'd run for fun in 2009, but I was in groups who walked the steep uphills of both Mystery and Moose mountains, which probably made it easier than my memories from three years ago, when I ran the entire distance. Must be, otherwise there would be no path to it. A newspaper reporter, who interviewed me, considered it a magnificent act to dissolve an organisation in which there were thousands and thousands of members. If you first understand that, then you will see how impossible it is to organise a belief. That means truth is fixed — right? Krishnamurti is regarded globally as one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers of all time. As our protagonists, Koan and Iona crisscross paths, they chart a course beyond the existential obstacle of mind.
On the contrary, he maintained that these are the very factors that divide human beings and bring about conflict and war. And, the implication clearly is, climbed alone.
