Publisher's Summary

  • Complete freedom from thought. 9 September 1972. Duration: 76 minutes.
  • Learning is instant perception and action. What place has thought in learning? To learn about freedom, must thought be completely silent? Does insight into freedom take time?

    Can thinking, however rational, bring about a psychological revolution in us? Is thought always conditioned? Is freedom the nonexistence of thought?

    My very being is related to thought. If you want to see something new, what do you do? To have insight, let go of the old and listen.

    Learning is not memorizing. Is feeling another way of thinking? Isn't the need to love and be loved essential? Needing love is love of self.

  • If I don't change now what will the future be? 10 September 1972. Duration: 86 minutes.
  • Is thought responsible for fragmentation? Does fragmentation have its own activity? What is the energy that perceives the total and doesn't live in fragmentation? Does comparison bring about fear and pleasure?

    Is thought seeking security in belief and dogma? Can the mind learn instantly all the content of the unconscious in which there are deep, secret fears? Does analysis imply time and division?

    Is consciousness separate from its content? To get at the root of fear means learning about not being. What about guilt?

  • If freedom is responsibility, how do I act? 16 September 1972. Duration: 78 minutes.
  • What is the action that will be a total response to the world around us? Can one respond totally without learning about love and death in relation to daily life?

    Do we live, or do we tolerate living? Do we live according to ideas and conclusions based on belief, dogma and memory? Is there an action which dissipates all images? Is love a relationship in which there is no image?

    Is disorder a relationship in which there is the image? Can a mind seeking comfort learn about death? Find out whether death is something to be avoided or to be lived with naturally. Can the mind free itself from the known?

    What relationship have literature, beauty and art to our daily lives? Were you conditioned by the masters? Can one help someone in distress?

  • To come upon the new, thought must be quiet. 17 September 1972. Duration: 66 minutes.
  • If one is serious, one must learn for oneself if there is such a thing as the I'm measurable. Thought cannot find the immeasurable because thought is measurement and time. Can thought, realizing its limitations, be quiet?

    Can the mind see its content clearly, and the limitation, lack of space and time-binding quality of its consciousness? When you say, 'I do not know', does the content have importance?

    There are various systems of meditation, gadgets, yoga, to make the mind quiet. These are unimportant. Is truth the very perception of the false? When the mind has perceived the truth of something, what is time?

Must listen.

Wisdom in its simplest form from a being that speaks the truth. I have listened to this twice and I will probably listen to it again. The key is to listen with all your focus.
