Sample text

I don’t know if I am making myself clear. I see that is a real, creative way of living. And whatever you do, whatever you say, whatever you write has got that quality. Not that I’m greedy or that I am envious of you, but I say: ‘What a marvellous thing it is to have that capacity’. Now how am I, who have always thought in duality, as the observer and the observed, to come to that? Because if it is something unique to you, then I’ve no interest. DAVID BOHM: Yes, it can’t be unique or it won’t be true.

KRISHNAMURTI: Yes. DAVID BOHM: We have to be very clear, because we are also saying there’s no division. KRISHNAMURTI: The observer and the observed, and all that. DAVID BOHM: There seems to be a contradiction here and we have to try to clear it up. Is there a kind of space, or something in between? ‘Between’ might be the wrong word, but this reality… KRISHNAMURTI: This reality is empty. This reality is nothing. DAVID BOHM: Yes. We said it was ‘no thing’. The word ‘nothing’ means no thing. So nothingness is ‘no thingness’, which is not reality.

Perception is action, seeing is action. DAVID BOHM: If you say the tree is truth, the actuality of the tree is the action of the tree. But this turns it around. It is very hard. Because of our customary use of language, it gets confused quickly. One turns around the other way and tends to think that the tree is the reality and that I see it. KRISHNAMURTI: Yes. The seeing is the action. DAVID BOHM: Now, we have to get hold of this very subtle new thing by a new approach and right use of language.
