The World Within
 
Dear Friends,
 
We've recently released Bulletin #88, based on materials compiled from the newly published book, The World WithinEach year we compile a bulletin, typically based on content pulled from previously unpublished materials in the archives
Bulletin 2014
of Krishnamurti's work. We have a great deal of previously unpublished content, including audio recordings, which require some work to transcribe and verify.
 
On page 11 of the Bulletin Krishnamurti says, "Let him become aware of his thoughts and feelings, not pick and choose, but be aware of them, however trivial and ignoble, lofty and serene. As each thought or feeling arises, let him think it out, feel out that thought or feeling, follow it through. In following it through, he will be constantly interrupted by other thoughts-feelings, and so will begin to understand the lack of true concentration."  It is interesting to reflect on these timeless words now, during a time in history when technology and the internet have become a distraction like we've never seen before. It may be that dialogue and recording ones thoughts in a journal is particularly poignant at this time because of the stark difference between these activities and the more routine aspects of our daily lives.
 
The section these words belong to is titled "Healing Oneself." It is one of many "interviews" written by Krishnamurti during the Second World War, during a time that he did not speak publicly in the United States but instead lived quietly in Ojai, where he was sought out by many people. These interviews are each quite short, and particularly interesting because of how deeply they delve into the human experience or, in other words, the world within.
 
Best wishes,

Jaap Sluijter

The Challenge of Sorrow   Theme Weekend Jan 30 - Feb 1
Theme weekends are an opportunity to spend one weekend at a time in engaging an ongoing study of Krishnamurti's teachings through shared inquiry. Together, we watch a video or listen to an audio by Krishnamurti. We then delve deeply into the topics and questions that arise, attempting to explore them fully. Often, we find that there is a shared wisdom that can be touched upon in this spirit of inquiring together.

New Book:
The World Within
During the Second World War (1939-1945) Krishnamurti did not speak publicly in the United States but lived quietly in Ojai, CA. People sought him out and came to dialogue with him on many issues of the times or their own personal dilemmas. Krishnamurti's recollection and documentation of these dialogues were gathered from his notebooks and compiled in this book.
