commentary on civilization and our ability to see beauty from j. krishnamurti
    #8264551 - 04/10/08 04:13 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

"...to look is one of the most difficult things in life -- or to listen --  to look and listen are the same.  If your eyes are blinded with your worries, you cannot see the beauty of the sunset.  Most of us have lost touch with nature.  Civilisation is tending more and more towards large cities; we are becoming more and more an urban people, living in crowded apartments and having very little space even to look at the sky of an evening and morning, and therefore we are losing touch with a great deal of beauty.  I don't know if you have noticed how few of us look at a sunrise or a sunset or the moonlight or the reflection of light on water.

Having lost touch with nature we naturally tend to develop intellectual capacities.  We read a great many books, go to a great many museums and concerts, watch television and have many other entertainments.  We quote endlessly from other people's ideas :wink: and think and talk a great deal about art.  Why is it that we depend so much upon art?  Is it a form of escape, of stimulation?  If you are directly in contact with nature; if you watch the movement of a bird on the wing, see the beauty of every movement of the sky, watch the shadows on the hills or the beauty on the face of another, do you think you will want to go to any museum to look at any picture?  Perhaps it is because you do not know how to look at all the things about you that you resort to some form of drug to stimulate you to see better.

There is a story of a religious teacher who used to talk every morning to his disciples.  One morning he got on to the platform and was just about to begin when a little bird came and sat on the window sill and began to sing, and sang away with full heart.  Then it stopped and flew away and the teacher said, 'The sermon for this morning is over'."
-Jiddu Krishnamurti, Freedom From The Known chapter XI

just wanted to share... i haven't made my mind up about anything , but i can see where he's coming from.

very handy when a bird drops by and already has the sermon memorised
very handy indeed.
I wonder if the disciples understood it more or less than a usual sermon.
