Re: theos-talk Elijah Crow â The Silence of the Mind

Dear friends

My views are:

I wonder whether Krishnamurti would have forwarded his teachings in the samer manner if had read the following books: 
William Sargant: Battle For The Mind" (published 1957!),  Robert Lifton: "Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism" (published 1961!), or even the later books like Steve Hassan's: Combatting cult mind control (1988), Margaret Singer's: Cults in Our Midst (1996) and similar books, which now are debated heavily in many corners of the globe???

I think he woul have realised, that his teachings lacked something. 
What do John and MKR and other readers think about this?


Maybe reading the books first will give better answer.
And if only few or none know about such teachings, how can they forward themselves in our present time, at promoters of theosophical teachings?

And what about the Alice A. Bailey teachers, implemented such a teaching in their schools?
And the other groups like I AM Joshua Stone or Harmonic Convergence Groups?
Or so-called DISCLOSURE groups within the UFO arena?

Oh dear oh dear...I wonder what will be next on the New Age agenda with its many distorted versions of wisdom teachings...?

But maybe I have overlooked something.


To John:
The recent discovery of the tunnel in Peru, have now reached the medias in Denmark.
I just heard that they have discovered about 60.000 very interesting artifacts at the site, where they are digging their way through towards what they think is a burial chamber of an ancient King - estimated to be dead about year 2000 BC according to ordinary science. They estimate officially that it will take a few month before they reach to actual tomb.

  After reading Blavatsky and all, how can Theosophists be ignorant of the Void? The Tibetans Kunje Nonparshespa original primordial clear void/empty Mind/Consciousness. And almost all the Tibetan Sects teach the void. The Mahayana Void or Empty mind. The Vedanta Adwaita. The Krama Kashmiri Advaita. The Tao Te Ching - Way of the Dao, The Korean and Japanese Zen all have the Void. The Heart Sutra has the Void. And Krishnamurti also spoke of the Non-dual Paradigm in his orations even if he would not name historical Parents of it. The Yoga Sutra teaches arrival to Queisence of Mind which reveals the Void of Primordial Self-nature.The Sufi also taught of the original Void, It is the Primary Metaphysical Cognition and is sometimes called Home. Find out "Who" you really are. Find out "Where" you really are. Lila is the illusion of the filling of the Void of original Self Beingness. This Doctrine of the Void is Primordial because it is the projection of Truth from Truth to Truth when Truth is cloaked during the Projection's of Lila. 

  Just my personal view.

  It looks a bit like Eckhat Tolle's: "The Power of Now".

  I found the following quote from Krishnamurti. Yet to locate where it was 

  "Reality is the interval between two thoughts" 

  Looks like two people coming up with the same statement, independently.
