These last 6 weeks have been full of activity both at the Krishnamurti Educational Center (KEC) and at Oak Grove School (OGS). The Theme Weekends at KEC have become a place for participants from all over the USA to meet and to have time to explore the questions of life.


OGS is in full swing. We had an Open House on November 5. Many current and prospective parents visited the school. The parents, teachers and staff this month have been looking at reward and punishment in educational practice.

Our weekly Essential Themes video this week is on the theme of relationship. It was Krishnamurti who pointed out to me that it is not in deep pondering or analysis that one learns about oneself, but that who we are is revealed in our relationships. And therefore I would like to share the following quote with you:

 

"...self knowledge is understood, is uncovered, its process is revealed, through relationship; that is, if you are willing to go into the question of relationship and expose yourself to it. Because, after all, you cannot live without relationship. But we want to use that relationship to be comfortable, to be gratified, to be something. That is, we use relationship based on an idea, which means the mind plays an important part in relationship. And as mind is concerned always with protecting itself, with remaining always within the known, it reduces all relationship to the level of habit, or of security; and therefor, relationship becomes merely an activity. So you see that relationship, if we allow it, can be a process of self-revelation..."  - J.Krishnamurti, On Relationship

 
Sincerely,

 

Jaap
