Krishnamurti & David Bohm – The Future of Humanity

Krishnamurti & David Bohm – The Future of Humanity

Can humanity live without conflict? Can we have peace on this earth? The activity of thought will never bring it about as thought inherently brings conflict. Computers depend upon memory and act within the limits of their programming. When our thoughts operate from memory we aren’t very different from a computer, and we are all programmed to a certain extent. There is an activity which is beyond memory and thought, that activity is the highest form of intelligence. An intelligence free of the program, which is creative, unbound by memory and thought yet able to work through them. To come to this one must question suffering, fear and the pursuit of pleasure, which are all in response to ones memory. As long as these things exist, true intelligence is unable to operate through thought. So what is it that suffers, what is suffering? It’s common to us all in the form of pain, grief and loss. When one suffers  we all suffer, however our limited thoughts are unable to see the one in all. Thought divides suffering from the one into many, into mine, yours, theirs, which creates the illusion of more suffering. The consciousness of humanity has divided itself by thought and will continue to suffer as long as we pursue our thoughts.

 

Albert Low on the vow of the Bodhisattva  ( http://www.myspiritualquotes.com/albert-low-zen-buddhism/ )   

The vow of the Bodhisattva is that she will not go into Nirvana until every single suffering being has entered Nirvana. One has to understand what this means. Our awakening is not a personal triumph. We do not have to win a spiritual sprint. We are one mind. Awakening is to penetrate more and more deeply into this truth. The world is alive. And as long as there is suffering then this living whole is shattered. Whether it is my suffering or the suffering of another, when seen from the perspective of the Bodhisattva makes no difference, because, seen from this perspective there is no ‘me’ or ‘another.’ In the Diamond Sutra, “Although the Bodhisattva saves all sentient beings, there are no sentient beings to save.”
