Jiddu Krishnamurti: In Total Silence The Mind Comes Upon The Eternal

7th Public Talk, Saanen, Switzerland, 22nd July, 1979 – In Total Silence the Mind Comes Upon the Eternal

Why is there constant strife and seeking? Are we seeking superficial sensory experience or something timeless that thought has not touched at all?

Can thought with its limitation enquire deeply? Is observation the instrument of thought? When one observes does the thing being observed undergo change? Can the mind having understood desire know its value is relative and be free to observe?

Is there a way of living without any control? Is not the controller the movement of thought? When there is no conflict whatsoever what takes place in the mind?
