Hey, TH!

Good to see ya, which one of the 4 videos are you referring to the last 9mins? I’ve yet to watch them all. Some of the videos I’ve put up I haven’t had a chance to go through them all but I put them up anyways. Gosh between the books and the videos looks like I’ll be busy for the next year! 🙂

Hey… by the way if you’d be interested in writing reviews of the videos for the regular blog post let me know. I’d like to find a couple people who would be interested in contributing articles on related topics. I don’t know if you do much writing but hey it could be fun… kick off some dialogs and get more people interested.

Hi Echo! In Part 1 of “The Nature Of The Mind” at 49min 30sec, the conversation takes on profound significance. Krishnamurti is essentially smashing to pieces the traditional approach to psychotherapy. In essence he’s saying “If I go to therapy and I’m diagnosed and given a label, what have you done for me? In truth, NOTHING! I still have the problem.” Of course psychotherapy typically involves strategies to DEAL with the problem, but Krishnamurti is saying that the therapist hasn’t challenged or forced him to FACE the problem, confront it, actually LOOK at it. In Krishnamurti’s view, if one directly confronts his or her problem – What Is – without any buffer or dependence on anyone or anything, without escape, transformation will take place and the problem will dissolve. Imagine each one of us taking this approach to our own lives – we’d become independent and therapists would eventually be out of business, lol.

I’d be honoured to contribute articles for the blog! I’m always writing and philosophizing. Just let me know where you’d like me to start.
