A band i got to see live in 2008. This is from their new album, hunters go hungry.
Krishnamurti: Don't be aware all the time! Just be aware in little bits. Please, there is no being aware all the time,that is a dreadful idea! It is a nightmare, this terrible desire for continuity. Just be aware for one minute, for one second, and in that one second of awareness you can see the whole universe. That is not a poetic phrase. We see things in a flash, in a single moment; but, having seen something, we want to capture, to hold it, give it continuity. That is not being aware at all. When you say, 'I must be aware all the time,' you have made a problem of it, and then you should really find out why you want to be aware all the time. See the greed it implies, the desire to acquire. And to say, 'Well, I am aware all the time,' means nothing.
'we see things in a flash, in a single moment', i wonder what that experience is like. Extracted from Collected Works, Vol. XIII,184,Choiceless Awareness
Took a lesson from sensei who has been doing these for 40 years. I created some Bhutanese washi paper dolls.
Don’t sway here and there
but let your thoughts flow and go.
The past is nothing but a dream
Written on an uneven slate of sand
To be washed away by the moving tides
Forgotten or layered in piles.
The future is yet to become
A mold out of the clay
but it is never certain
of what the mold will become.
Focus on the wonderful now
and watch time go in slow motion
there's bigger purpose to life than this
let it unfold in the present.
