VII. In Summation

Jidda Krishnamurti Krishnamurti Foundation America ePub

During the last talks or discussions, we have been considering the question of self-knowledge. Because, as we said, without being aware of ones own process of thought and feeling, it is obviously not possible to act rightly or think rightly. So the essential purpose of these gatherings or discussions or meetings is really to see if one can, for oneself, directly experience the process of ones own thinking and be aware of it integrally. Most of us are aware of it supercially, on the upper or supercial level of the mind, but not as a total process. It is this total process that gives freedom, that gives comprehension, that gives understanding, and not the partial process. Some of us may know ourselves partially; at least we think we know ourselves a little, but that little is not sufcient, because if one knows oneself slightly, it acts as a hindrance rather than a help. And it is only in knowing oneself as a total processphysiologically and psychologically, the hidden, unconscious, deeper layers as well as the supercial layersit is only when we know the total process that we are able to deal with the problems that inevitably arise, not partially, but as a whole.
