If there is only one Krishnamurti book you read, this slim and clear collection of lectures should be it.
Noel Rieder
J.K.'s book ask you to start being aware and you can get rid of this crap, excuse me conditions of the mind especially the harmful ones.
Randy
I will buy the rest of Krishnamurtis books, and I have no favourites; I think they all have their own significance.

This book jolts you as it brutally exposes how we are all conditioned to be this or that in our lives and thereby losing out every precious moment - the NOW.

I got a scare, while going through the book, I became aware of myself labeling every situation and every person as this or that and I want to be this, now and that-the next moment and so on. How the conditioning rules the mind is amazing and how this conditioning lends itself to anxiety and stress.

The funny part is how we label certain emotions as this or that and instead of seeing them as they are in their pristine form. We are busy, trying to get rid of those emotions or thoughts about those emotions (which I find even more ridiculous) which are only labels !! See the fears and anxieties and obsessions as they are and the very seeing brings about a huge change. I am certainly ending my quest for spiritual experiences after reading these set of talks as I am convinced that they are only another form of entertainment that the mind is seeking.

As I conclude this, my mind says - are you sure, you'll be peaceful just by observing the feelings and emotions ? All I can do is laugh at it without answering the question. Afterall, who is the one who asks the question and who is the one who seeks an answer and who is the one who might answer ? Its all the same - the ego - the conditioning - the mechanical mind whcih can operate only in the field of known - as Krishnamurti often says.

Amazing book !! In a nutshell, life as we know is not to be taken too seriously !!

In this series of 8 talks, Krishnamurti lays out his view of the human condition in stark terms. He claims we are all basically lonely and inwardly empty. Because we find this state painful, we run away from it, and the running away from it creates fear. This fear then drives us towards various escapes, to adopt society's patterns of self-improvement, accumulation, competition, envy, domination, etc., resulting in the conditioning of ourselves and creating the subtle and not-so-subtle patterns of violence we see in society.

But he claims there is another way. If we constantly see ourselves as we are, this frees us from our conditioning. Freed from our habitual ways of looking at them, loneliness and emptiness become what he calls "aloneness," freedom from collective patterns of conditioning, and this leads to the real, the timeless. By conditioning he means reacting to stimuli with memory, habitual social and individual patterns of thought, rather than seeing things as they are and seeing oneself as one is. Without such a revolution in one's thinking, one continues to operate in the field of one's conditioning. If a petty mind seeks God, the God it finds is likely to be petty.

He points out that society does not encourage us to look at ourselves the way we are. Instead, we are encouraged to compare ourselves to others, to standards or ideals, and to be constantly striving to improve ourselves accordingly. This self-improvement leads to continuation of the self in modified form. Krishnamurti sees the self as a result of the conditioning influences of society and describes this self-improvement process as "progress in sorrow.

There are things that goes on in a person's life and they ask why is this happening or why does this always happen to me? This book brings the answer out but you have to see it for yourself. Why can't some women or men get a nice companion, job, money, or just a peaceful life? The mind has been condition from birth and attracts the same situations and conditions in which it has been brought up or presently in, weather religion, race, culture, etc. J.K. gets to the subconscious of the matter.This sort of thing affects your life, health, relationships all walks of life. How can you understand your children, spouse, friends, job etc. when you have issues and don't even understand yourself. J.K.'s book ask you to start being aware and you can get rid of this crap, excuse me conditions of the mind especially the harmful ones. Great book. Check it our for yourself. It has helped me.

What a lovely, wonderful man and writer. He was raised to be the leader of India, the new Krishna, and he turned away from all of that and said basically "believe in yourself, rather than look for answers from me". He gave it all away, choosing instead to teach, instruct, and live life. His words flow like poetry, and his thoughts touch our very souls. He said think, don't follow. He taught that we should look into ourselves instead. I recommend reading everything he has written. He was a kind, gentle, intelligent man, with a strength than most of us will never be able to come close to.

I've read Krishnamurti for years. When I was young, I was amazed at his insights. Not an American-style thinker.

Now that I am much older I read As One Is: TO Free the Mind of All Conditioning and it once again gave me tools to make life changes that were too long in coming.

He was one of the world's greatest speakers of the human condition and the baggage we accumulate over the years. He is also a voice of reason for anyone looking for answers.

One of his finest books!
