Live Across the Edge

If you are just a small living thing in a strange big world, what you would you do if even the edge is still unknown.

Would you like to try to cross the edge of unknown? Living there so you can see everything that you never see - even when your lifespan perhaps won't permit it.

We are just a small living thing at all. It is nothing wrong neither right by live across the edge.

Temporary Knowledges

Somehow, I wonder, why we are pursuing knowledge, when we know its only for a temporary.

Morning Calmness

Whenever my time to get every morning sunshine a touch, there always a blossom of this water lily. It is my morning sanctuary blessed upon a morning calmness.

Nothing in Common

Perhaps we’ve live surrounded with everything or people those have nothing in common with our self. Perhaps, we’ve live by seeing everything are so different. But, what is wrong with being different?

Well, we (mostly) will meet person with some peculiar character that we never ever imagine before. But, the problem would be, how far we can accept being different, someone with nothing in common, how far we would open our self to this world?

Can you love of being different, or can you say it love if only wish everything as you desire?

Let It Goes

I think I nearly always here those simple world inside my head. Perhaps since my life are too complex, sometimes I got a hard time to swallow those words.

The more we attached to something, it would be harder to let it goes. The pain, suffering, agony are everything those occur naturally.

And the more our effort, struggle, the more negative feeling blooms inside.

Then, I think, if we can not see clearly that we are attached at all, we can't wish to end the nature of attachment itself.

Wisdom is started, when we being honest with our self, with our attachments.

A New Meeting

Somehow, its feel very nostalgic when we met an old friend, even just by words of instant text. The world becomes smaller by our innovations in communications technology.

People no longer meeting face by face, by looking at a bright screen of a computerized devices, and typing "hi".

I wonder how much we have change this world in past century. And how it will be in next century. I think, we'll always have a new meeting.

Do Consideration

Doing this or not doing this, doing that or not doing that, I found myself having so much consideration from time to time.

Yes, indeed life needs consideration, but if it hold me back from acting, I think do consideration is no much helping at all.

Before The Time

One can not move before the time, one can not idle in the time. Our universe strangely creates many things beyond our understanding.

But, one thing is clear enough, that everything has their own moment, their own time.

Since time is as strange as this world, perhaps the really exact time is within the dark-unknown-unmapped territories.

Reveal it, perhaps, one shall find the harmony of this life.

The Melody We Left Behind

How much far we have move to the present time, how many things those we left behind. And what kind of change we have brought to this very day.

Those questions once awhile – definitely – came across my mind. Perhaps, am I doubting the present, or was I having a regrets leaving something in the past. Is not an easy question, not since they have no answer, but since it hard to believe that those things need an answer in the first place.

The melody we left behind, perhaps it shall gone forever, or maybe still echoing to this very day.

Finding Horizon

I always curious when looking far to the horizon, whether that line shows me the truth lies beyond, or will I able to arrive there if I am about going to find it? Ah, just something like that.

Horizon is, something you can see in everyday life, but will never able to catch it even if you were faster then light. But indeed, the curiousness about is like imagination to bring even the thinest line into surrealism.

Finding horizon perhaps something that can't be a dream comes true. Indeed, life is not always about fulfillment of your dreams, sometimes - it is all about how you enjoy yourself all the way.

If I meet my destiny

I think - or perhaps I dreams, it would be a merely simple issue when I met my destiny, or maybe it no issue at all.

But still I am wondering, how shall thou come to me? And this question were left behind, were I don't think it need any answer, at least, not now.

Lingering Feeling

Deep down when one feel a great sorrow, there is a lingering feeling which has no soul of life fullness. Never has certainty for anything, never build any dream, never run for any hope.

A great sorrow, is one last battlefield - we called it life. Passing it wisely, then perhaps one shall find his certainty in this life.

The Forbidden Path

Human has a freedom to walk in any direction he will, in any path he prefer to take. And there is no such dogma needed to force someone to take what is right instead what is wrong acording to something else beside his heart.

I believe if one takes a decision by his heart, it would not lead to any wrong direction. But if he failed to listen to his own heart, the path may turn into a hellish one.

And the only reason why one could fail listen to his own heart, is because he is confusing. By the dogmas, by the traditions, by the norms. By anything that divides this world into black and white, into right and wrong.

Anything that would not let him entering the forbidden path, which perhaps never even an existence in reallity.

Listen to your heart honestly, then you may see what are the actual forbidden paths, which the by nature, you won't take those paths.

Lack of Miracles

Somehow people wonder, is there any miracle that would pop up in their usual boring day of today? Because somehow, we wish - perhaps unconsciously - so something good even great happening to us without any prior notice. In the end, wish the routine daily life would just change into a wonderful day.

So, do you thing there was a lack of miracles? Or just people only has no capability to enjoy the life they already had?

Miracles are not something we can hope for escaping from reality. But, I think then, the complete understanding of our reality would be the greatest miracle that we can found. Since that understanding would surely makes us live fully.

If we can do everything

Imagine if people are capable of doing everything. What kind of life shall we take into the future, or what step we take for today? Do we prefer, travelling all over the seas and continents to find our adventurer spirit? Or do we prefer opening a small shop as a flourist?

Shall we see our self life in the middle of high class properties, or just a small simple lovely house in the middle of nowhere?

I think when we dream of capable of almost anything, we may see the form of our very desired one. But if we then just find that dream exactly as how we are today, what is mean then?

Are we satisfied enough of our life? Are we love the life that we walk in today? Or, are we stupid enough by not seeing anything to make a better future?

Well, those question shall not be answered by anyone else but our self, will they?

A Great and Totality of Feeling

In the modern world where there are so many problems, one is apt to lose great feeling. I mean by that word feeling, not sentiment, not emotionalism, not mere excitement, but that quality of perception, the quality of hearing, listening, the quality of feeling -a bird singing on a tree, the movement of a leaf in the sun.

To feel things greatly, deeply, penetratingly, is very difficult for most of us because we have so many problems. Whatever we seem to touch turns into a problem. And, apparently, there is no end to man's problems, and he seems utterly incapable of resolving them because the more the problems exist, the less the feelings become.

I mean by "feeling" the appreciation of the curve of a branch, the squalor, the dirt on the road, to be sensitive to the sorrow of another, to be in a state of ecstasy when we see a sunset. These are not sentiments, these are not mere emotions. Emotion and sentiment or sentimentality turn to cruelty, they can be used by society; and when there is sentiment, sensation, then one becomes a slave to society. But one must have great feelings.

The feeling for beauty, the feeling for a word, the silence between two words, and the hearing of a sound clearly;all that generates feeling. And one must have strong feelings, because it is only the feelings that make the mind highly sensitive.

What is feeling? Feeling is like thought. Feeling is a sensation. I see a flower and I respond to that flower; I like it or dislike it. The like or the dislike is dictated by my thought, and the thought is the response of the background of memory.

So, I say, "I like that flower," or "I do not like that flower"; "I like this feeling" or "I do not like that feeling."

Now, is love related to feeling? Feeling is sensation, obviously, sensation of like and dislike, of good and bad, of good taste and all the rest of it. Is that feeling related to love? Have you watched your street, have you watched the way you live in your houses, the way you sit, the way you talk? And have you noticed all your saints whom you worship? For them passion is sex, and therefore they deny passion, therefore they deny beauty, deny in the sense of putting those aside.

So, with sensation you have put away love because you say, 'Sensation will make me a prisoner, I will be a slave to sex-desire; therefore I must cut it out.' Therefore you have made sex into an immense problem. When you have understood feeling completely, not partially, when you have really understood the totality of feeling, then you will know what love is.

When you can see the beauty of a tree, when you can see the beauty of a smile, when you can see the sun setting behind the walls of your town, see totally, then you will know what love is.

From “Book of Life”, by J. Krishnamurti.

The Peculiar Curiousity

I don't know much thinks, even perhaps I've been life for at least a third of my life span. Even when I started to write this, I don't know where it would be going.

But still, I wrote and wrote. Curious I maybe, yet it just another peculiar curiousity in my life. I've no reason for it, but simple repeated words of "I wonder..."

Life shall provide you with so many questions, and yet a little has its answers just side by side. Even after you struggling again and again, the answers may still seemed too obvious to be a true answer.

But then again, this glutony of curiousity is peculiar by itself, isn't it?

Well, when you grow old, even not get any more wisdom, you still would be to satisfy, just by answers without a single question. Since we shall find, that our curiousity isn't satisfied by any answer in this world that has many faces, but this peculiar curiousity itself is the very answer of satisfication.

Keep Moving Forward

Life surely has moments in which we feel down, sad, or desperate. I won't say it would be easy, neither it would be a moment where you find joy in struglling with your own consciousness.

Keep moving forward would be a word that seems as possible seing the sun will rise from East tommorow. But, we human are tend and capable to dealing with any possibility without any regret, we chose to live fully.

Relation of Exploitation

As most of us seek power in one form or another, the hierarchical principle is established, the novice and the initiate, the pupil and the Master, and even among the Masters there are degrees of spiritual growth. Most of us love to exploit and be exploited, and this system offers the means, whether hidden or open. To exploit is to be exploited. The desire to use others for your psychological necessities makes for dependence, and when you depend you must hold, possess; and what you possess possesses you.

Without dependence, subtle or gross, without possessing things, people, and ideas, you are empty, a thing of no importance. You want to be something, and to avoid the gnawing fear of being nothing you belong to this or that organization, to this or that ideology, to this church or that temple; so you are exploited, and you in your turn exploit.

Q: When a man has a message, the relationship between a man and his message is usually a teacher and his teachings. And the teacher often has followers, and his message is a system - why don't you consider yourself a teacher and your message a system?

K: Generally a teacher has a message and followers - a teacher. Why don't you consider yourself as a teacher and have followers? I have made it all fairly clear, haven't I? Don't follow anybody and don't accept anybody as a teacher except you yourself become the teacher and the disciple for yourself.

Relationship based on mutual need brings only conflict. However interdependent we are on each other, we are using each other for a purpose, for an end. With an end in view, relationship is not. You may use me and I may use you. In this usage, we lose contact. A society based on mutual usage is the foundation of violence. When we use another, we have only the picture of the end to be gained. The end, the gain, prevents relationship, communion. In the usage of another, however gratifying and comforting it may be, there is always fear.

To avoid this fear, we must possess. From this possession there arises envy, suspicion, and constant conflict. Such a relationship can never bring about happiness. A society whose structure is based on mere need, whether physiological or psychological, must breed conflict, confusion, and misery. Society is the projection of yourself in relation with another, in which the need and the use are predominant. When you use another for your need, physically or psychologically, in actuality there is no relationship at all; you really have no contact with the other, no communion with the other. How can you have communion with the other when the other is used as a piece of furniture, for your convenience and comfort? So, it is essential to understand the significance of relationship in daily life.

Dependence sets going the movement of aloofness and attachment, a constant conflict without comprehension, without a release. You must become aware of the process of attachment and dependence, become aware of it without condemnation, without judgment, and then you will perceive the significance of this conflict of opposites.

If you become deeply aware and consciously direct thought to comprehend the full meaning of need, of dependence, your conscious mind will be open and clear about it; and then the subconscious with its hidden motives, pursuits, and intentions, will project itself into the conscious. When this happens, you must study and understand each intimation of the subconscious. If you do this many times, becoming aware of the projections of the subconscious after the conscious has thought out the problem as clearly as possible, then, even though you give your attention to other matters, the conscious and the subconscious will work out the problem of dependence, or any other problem. Thus, there is established a constant awareness, which will patiently and gently bring about integration; and if your health and diet are all right, this will in turn bring about fullness of being.

Jiddu Krishnamurti on The Book of Life.

We know no love

Our problem is, is it not, that our lives are empty, and we know no love; we know sensations, we know advertising, we know sexual demands, but there is no love. And how is this emptiness to be transformed, how is one to find that flame without smoke? Surely, that is the question, is it not?

There is No Reasoning

Sometimes one's act based on no particular reason, it just flows simple like a river on the spring. Even if someone else were asking him what is the reason, he has no answer.

The problem that might rise is not all of the people can accept openly an act without reason. Why you help them if there is no reason? That would be a common example of simple denying.

Pure act has no reason, nor should one searching for it. It is a part of one's heart, your action based on what your heart says, then there would be no reason, except your action was coming from your logic, there shall you find a lot of reasoning.

Why should I choose?

Your tendency, your proclivities, your inclination, your social background, religion - all that pushes you in a certain direction, and you say you are choosing. You see, sir, I question this whole way of choosing. Why should I choose? If a man is free, he has no choice. There is no question of choice. Finished. That is why I said at the beginning that to establish a serious discussion, there must be this examination of freedom and peace. Otherwise you can't proceed.

Bed Time Stories

I remember when years ago I got to bed with bed time stories once for each night. Well, looking by my age now, no one who would give me a bed time story.

It was nice listening to stories, making your imagination flew like unwinged wild pasion. You can create beyond this world boundaries.

And do you know how to create such a wonderful bed time story? Which goes beyond this world boundaries? First, you must understand what that boundaries are, don't you think you so?

Simple it was said, our ego created the boundaries. And simple it was said, that only with love those root of boundaries shall be disolved by itself naturaly. So, even a child would know, that all we need to make a bed time story wonderful is love.

Will This Be Enough?

One feels hunger, he founds food, he eats and satisfied. Then..., one feels cold, he founds cloths, he wears them and satisfied.

One feels insecure, he build a house, stay within and satisfied. But wait, he feels another thing again, then he makes him self found something to overcome that feeling.

He feels another thing after another. He think he would satified enough at the begining, but its only a begining in the end. And he knows the very question, when will this be enough?

A Short Breath

How long do you think a human life span last? A century for today already called as miracle, but even when was entering my twenty five, I just felt as I am already pass half way of my short breath.

Yes, human doesn't life so long, if compered to a life of insect, like a mosquito which only last for a couple weeks, our life span seems so long. But when compare to life of a star, human life span is nothing but a blinking of eyes.

I would say, yes we are life long enough, but as well as a short breath we have for this one life. Somehow, with this short breath, I wish there are meaningful things as beauty as morning blossom.

Scattered Memories

Within the boundaries of one imperfect mind, there are scattered memories lay everywhere just like grasses above the meadow. Some of them made by tears and others by joys.

Human are a fragile creature with fragile soul, yet they can show unbelievable strange of conviction toward what the felt as the rightful path. If their act are solely determined with this scattered memories, then their life only a shallow and a pitiful life.

Memories only became part of the past, and those who moves forward with holding back into his/her past, were never move at all actually. But, I don’t think the problems here is about this scattered memories. Eventually, every life that capable to save something in imaginary way, they shall naturally has a kind of memory within, it is something so natural to happen in this life.

So being aware that only the natural think would give us a chance to not holding back into the abyss of past. Just like falling cherry blossoms, you shall not hold them to stay on the tress.

Grasping It

"Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus, but use all gently. For in the very torrent, tempest, and as I may say, whirlwind of passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness."

Complete negation is complete action

Thought is the entity that divides and through thought, that is through analysis, you hope to come upon that state in which there is no division at all; you can't do it, it can only come about when the mind itself sees and understands this whole process, and is then completely quiet. That word 'understanding' is very important; a description doesn't bring understanding, neither does finding out the cause of something.

So what brings understanding? What is understanding? Have you ever noticed when your mind is quietly listening - not arguing, judging, criticizing, evaluating, comparing but just listening, then in that state the mind is silent and then only understanding comes.

There is this division within ourselves, this everlasting contradiction and we must simply be aware of it, and not try to do anything about it, because whatever we do causes this division. So complete negation is complete action.

Worst Circumstence

Somehow we simply can't avoid being stand on the worst condition, the bad scenario, where it seems of having the continuation of misfortune and sorrow around the ground we stand on.

The higher a tree, the stronger it shall blown by the wind. If it doesn't grow on good land, it becomes fragile then would fall after a single great blow.

Yes, we are as the same as the tree. Education we might say as our solid ground. Education isn't always about formal school, Its about our daily life, teach isn't always the same as educating.

When we are on the worst situation, lets see if we can stand firm and smile gently. Even at the end we would fall, then lets see, whether we fall for something or for nothing. Do not be affraid of getting hurt, since life has many things which offering it.

Walk your path, even under the heaviest rain.

Inner Peace

We can not deny if we – human – have a lot of problems which maybe some of them are already made us restless enough. Then we simply seek something that can give us – just a moment to take a deep breath, a moment of peace, a time of relaxation.

We seek it everywhere, around the beach, the botanical garden, the arcade, the grand park, the theatre, even inside a night pubs. But the question should be, is there peace already within you?

The right question about our inner peace, should lead us to the right issue of our chaotic life.

Truth

One day a man was walking along the street and instead of looking at the beautiful sky he was watching the pavement as he went along. Then he saw in the distance something very brilliant. He went rapidly towards it, picked it up and looked at this extraordinary thing, and he was in a state of beatitude, because it was extraordinarily beautiful. So he looked at it and put it in his pocket.

Behind were two people, also walking. One of them says to the other "What was it that he picked up? Did you see his expression, what an ecstasy he was in by the very act of looking at it?"

And the other - who happened to be the devil - said, "What he picked up was truth."

And the friend said "That is a very bad business for you that he has found it".

He said "Not at all. I am going to help him to organize it."

And that is what we have done - we have the systems, the methods, the practices of the gurus. And so a mind that is enquiring into the nature of truth must be free totally from all organized pursuit, all organized practice, all organized enquiry.

Never Ending Misfortune

Have you ever feel like luck never take a side with you? Like everything you've been done whole this time would be swept away easily because there is a single factor that doesn't not exist?

We done everything, yet everything is undone again and again. Yes, we call it misfortune. Even it might be getting worst, and we call it bad luck.

No matter what you call it, it still the part of our life. But the reason is, is that really a misfortune? That would be the essential question.

Guano could be a complete junk, but some people could turn into gold, of course without alchemia or anything like that. They are just changing view, from misfortune, into fortune, aren't they?
