Is thought detrimental? 15 August 1965. Duration: 63 minutes. Why does one seek pleasure? Can the mind face only facts and not thought? Why have I never said, ´Thought is poison´ to myself? Meeting something one doesn´t know, facing something which has no answer. Acting without knowing. What is a state of mind which is silent? Time is detrimental. Are we twisting everything to our core of pleasure? Am I aware of the process of thinking? 18 August 1965. Duration: 60 minutes. Can I see that thought is destructive except where it is essential? Why is it that we don´t see something immediately? Do you know when you are thinking? Is the thing that we call thinking thinking at all? Do you think from the background noise when a problem arises? When the mind becomes totally aware of the background, is there thinking when a problem arises? What happens when I am aware of this hum, this noise incessantly going on? Is the background noise different from the observer? How am I to live an everyday life with complete silence? What will make me see that thought breeds frustration? 21 August 1965. Duration: 78 minutes. What is the function of thought? Can the mind see the fact that thought will always breed frustration? Function is necessary, but function with status, position and power must breed frustration. Without frustration thought says to itself, ´I am not seeking. I don´t want anything.´ If there is no thought, what happens? The very perception of the limitation of thought is the act of opening the door rather than thought opening the door. To function without prestige, without frustration, that itself is an extraordinary state, meaning to function without self-centred activity. From where do attachment and detachment come? 24 August 1965. Duration: 65 minutes. What is the relationship of the brai... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jiddu Krishnamurti.
