“Out of this emptiness the new is.”

J. Krishnamurti

 

 

The path is one of continual negation, not one of insatiable accumulation; reason must vanish altogether, taking with it both memory and conditioning- if we are to look out at a world we have been living in all the while, and look into a self we have been calling ‘I’ for the same amount of time, and in the living instant suddenly unknow everything completely and see life as if we have never ever seen it before.

            J. Krishnamurti suggests: “...the moment you have a conclusion or start examining from knowledge you are finished, for then you are translating every living thing in terms of the old. Whereas if you have no foothold, if there is no certainty, no achievement, there is freedom to look, to achieve. And when you look with freedom it is always new. A confident man is a dead human being.”      

            To reach the spontaneity of living nowness is incredibly subtle. Joseph Chilton Pearce describes this adaptation to existence as a “...casual, haphazard, amoral process that leaps the logical gaps and brings about newness.”

            This statement is a spectacular, parsimonious synopsis of the way of unknowing: to be ‘casual’ is to be without ‘living by the letter’; to be ‘haphazard’ implies a conditionless event; and ‘amorality’ is the absence of the Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil; all of these traits- casual, haphazard, and amoral- then conspire to bring the individual to the realization of newness (of witnessing creation continually creating).

            In our pursuit of wholeness, it is not a debt to old wisdom which we owe, but a new ignorance which we must inherit. It is not the meaning, but the mystery of being which we must re-dis-cover. Our new truths should not demystify the world, they should remystify it.
