Sample text

That has nothing to do with it. Something must be done. There is an act. K: Absolutely. Life is action. A: I should say for our readers that this is from “The Awakening of Intelligence”, and it’s on page 196 in the chapter on Freedom. ‘Through negation’—I take it that’s a word for this act—‘that thing which alone is the positive’—the word ‘alone’ came over to me with the force of something unique. K: Yes, sir. A: Something that is not continuous with anything else. That thing which alone is the positive comes into being.

K: There are two things involved, aren’t there? First, I must learn from the problem, which means I must have a mind that has a quality of humility. ’ What he knows is merely explanations, rational or irrational. He comes to the problem with rational or irrational solutions. Therefore he is not learning from the problem. The problem will reveal an infinite lot of things, if I’m capable of looking at it and learning about it. And for that I must have a sense of humility and say, ‘I don’t know. This is a tremendous problem.

In negating that the positive is the moral. I negate totally the idea of success. Not only in the mundane world, not only in the sense of achievement in a world of money, position, authority, which I negate completely, I also negate success in the so-called spiritual world. A: Quite, the temptation. K: Both are the same. Only I call that spiritual and I call that physical, moral, mundane. So in negating success, achievement, there comes an energy. Through negation there is a tremendous energy to act totally differently which is not in the field of success, imitation, conformity and all that.
