    One thought on “The Awakening of Intelligence”

    1. In Awakening of Intelligence, Krishnamurti repeats the same message that he has always stated The past, which is the known, keeps us bound The mind is conditioned by patterns of thought, operating through grooves in the mind that result from clinging to experiences By repeating and reinforcing these same patterns, a perception is solidified and reality is, consequently, fragmented.This book helped me a couple of years ago by serving as an introduction to perceptual, empirical conditioning Krishn [...]

    2. Nothing like Krishnamurti to remind me of that which is important a revision of Buddhistic ideas about the fluidity of thought this anti guru tells us that we should not bother with thought at all Of course, the paradoxical nature and impossibility and ultimately, the freedom of such an idea a thought is what makes this book so captivating, as Krishnaji explains and explains precisely what he means, engaging both the reader as well as the person he is talking to in each chapter, from philosophy [...]

    3. This is one of the five books I took with me when I first deployed to Afghanistan A record of talks Krishnamurti held, the book can get repetitive as people in his audience keep asking the same questions over and over The questioners also ask such metaphysically weighty questions with no sense of irony that the book feels a little dated That said, Krishnamurti is an amazing thinker, influential to many of the spiritual writers of today and to Bruce Lee, which is how I discovered him His iconocla [...]

    4. This book is amazing It s not a book that you have to read from cover to cover, which I really enjoyed, because you can just pick it up at any point, find a topic you want to dig in deep and REALLY think about, and go ahead and read about it My best friend and I once had a 4 1 2hr conversation discussing two pages in this book I recommend this book to somebody who s just getting into philosophy, because it s definitely not the easiest of reads, however there s a wealth of knowledge in it s conte [...]

    5. What a thinker This book will rattle your brain in many new directions and will strip away so much conditioned thinking This is not for the lighthearted If you enjoy philosophy, you need to read this.

    6. Make no mistake, what Krishnamurti teaches is not another philosophical system it is the end of all systems it is the end of everything except love, which can operate only in an atmosphere of unselfishness and therefore freedom The message is that the ending of sorrow is found in the cessation of self interest which is the source of all conflict self interest including the desire to achieve even the most lofty spiritual ideals If one has ever felt a longing to live completely without conflict, t [...]

    7. There is a simplicity and profoundness to Krishnamurti s talks, he often connects the topic back to root causes of the human condition He offers a brilliant perspective of the nature of ego, security, suffering, and thinking itself It is a profoundly simple message, yet eloquently conveyed with strong questions to break through the fears and egos that prevent the human mind from understanding something that is otherwise quite simple.

    8. This was one of those paradigm shifting books you occasionally come cross Jiddu challenges almost all of the fundamental norms and philosophical conventions you or I would typically live by In many ways his style of discussion this book comprised a series of lectures and exchanges he had with various audience members and specific individuals was very Socratic in many places My one main criticism would be that at times he comes across extremely arrogant to the point that you get the impression th [...]

    9. The book is basically a transcription of seminars from the early 70 s concerning the nature of intelligence and how thought acts to drown it out, through the pursuit of pleasure and security, which produces a fragmentary world of conflicting concepts and illusions that removes one from the reality of the present The ideas run parallel with the left brain right brain concepts of modern neuroscience and the authors teachings are the bedrock of contemporary spirituality literature Although much of [...]

    10. This one of the outanding spiritual books of the last century This is also one of the books I will never finish reading It is to be contemplated upon not reading in the normal sense The section pages 384 414 for me is favourite Interview with Bohm at the lastpart is insightful I have been with this book for several decades but re read when i need contemplation In fact i have a few books that are favourite for reapeated study Nissagar Datta maharaj s I am That, Ramana maharishi s talks with mahar [...]

    11. It took me most of a year to read this book And this was the second time I read it It still is one of my all time favorite books It s offers a full view of Krishnamurti s philosophy through transcripts of his talks in India and London If you want to understadn why thought is a prison and why the images you hold about others interfere with your personal growth and realization of Truth and compassion, this is a good book to read It s the kind of book you have to study and apply to yourself as you [...]

    12. This is a heavy, lengthy and intense read That being said gives one plenty of food for thought I did find that it does require focus to understand the words of Krishnamurtibut it is not one of those books that just seems impossible to grasp I don t know if Krishnamurti s philosophy is true or false, but it s definitely interesting and something to take into consideration Very intriguing and eye opening I use that term loosley at some points I don t know what else to say after that I could go int [...]

    13. I came across Krishnamurti s name digging around in Bruce Lee s Tao of Jeet Kune Do Krishnamurti is listed in there in one of Bruce s lists under Mental Training And that s what this is Krishnamurti s reading is like meditation, spirituality, or mysticism, but without any of the obesiance to authority, supernatural claims, or mystification I have gradually become focused on social and political suffering and social and political solutions to human misery, but for help with trying to understand [...]

    14. 200 pages into this book and I finally have some idea what Krishnamurti is speaking about He is writing about seeing and how this is different than learning and seeking, etc So what is important is not to learn, but to see and to listen Then out of this listening you will find that all seperation between the observer and the observed comes to an end If you can see, than you have nothing else to do, because in that seeing there is all discipline, all virtue, which is attention And in that seeing [...]

    15. I laboured through this book It was a triumph in itself just to finish reading it His audience seemed to be forever groping in the dark.he is very unattached to anything, doesn t read any books one can see that clearly , very self opinionated, ask the same questions over and over again and always looked down upon anybody s viewpointgh.I took about 9 months to labour through itew

    17. Jiddu Krishnamurti is probably the most underrated philosopher to come from India He was handpicked by Theosophical Society as Dalai Lama was chosen , and trained in UK for over a decade He was supposed to be the World Teacher sort of a Messiah a helping group Star in the East with 5000 members at its peak was created to serve the future World Teacher However, at the end of the training K that s how he came to know in his circle , realized that one cannot solve the world problems, by belonging t [...]

    18. Denzel is reading a book in one of his scenes in the historical autobiographic movie based on a legendary boxer from Paterson, Nj The man recently passed away this year But In the movie, Denzel is reading this very exact book in his cell block while awaiting appeal Framed, coerced and wrongfully imprisoned, he held composure facing wild adversity and did the knowledge to eventually free himself The movie is called hurricane carter.Reading the book I got halfway till I realized I should be highli [...]

    19. Loved this book I never thought I would read and enjoy Philosophy at this time, however, once I started reading it, I was understanding what was being said and I kept on going It reminded me the Vipassana camp I did in 2012 It talks about some of the lessons taught by Vipassana and goes even meta about thought and intelligence He keeps coming back to the fact that you, as an intelligent person, a curious person, has to have immense energy and enthusiasm to inquire about how life works You canno [...]

    20. I watched a couple talks by Krishnamurti earlier this year and his ideas about letting go of ideals has been bouncing around my head since then Krishnamurti teaches that ideals are fabrications of a reality that does not exist and he teaches that we should not cloud our present thought with such delusions He encourages methods of accepting and acting based on the present moment and not getting hung up on needs for security and control in a constantly transient life It is very refreshing to read [...]

    21. Not an easy read Definitely helpful to have at least a beginners level understanding of New Age thinking prior to reading although can understand with a little extra thought if unfamiliar Great ideas and ways of thinking about human experiences pain, suffering, love, attachment, intelligence, etc This is definitely a book you need a pen and highlighter for and perhaps even notes to organize your thoughts alongside Krishna s This book has already expanded my viewpoint of the center vs the outside [...]

    22. It is a very deep book, I wouldn t say it was too fast either i think the size of the book clearly shows one of the most important thing J Krishnamurti has said, the questions are empty, and only so much can be said it gets repetitive towards the end But that does not mean in any way that one shouldn t read through the book, for I could discern clarity towards the end and the conversations with Swami Venkatesananda and David Bohm are truly remarkable

    23. i ve read this literally dozens of times you find something new every time i love it i am a big fan of krishnamurti so i am a little biased this book is just a series of speeches and lectures but put together in a most excellent manner to put a summary on the book in laemans he breaks conscious thought down into the most simplest of forms, and from there we find our answers to awareness, human emotion and function.

    24. To anyone who has ever questioned man s everyday role in existence, introduction to Krishnamurti s expressions are mandatory Delivered in the no nonsense style that is solely Krishnamurti s, this writing lends doubt to our definition of intelligence Further, it presents a measurement of intelligence that is clear, above standard and involves than heavy brain power.
