Book Description

Ideas are the product of knowledge stored in the brain; they arise from a material process & are always limited & subject to the chain of cause & effect; their ‘intelligence’ is limited by the material process, it is not holistic. Krishnamurti affirms that when the true nature of this activity in the psyche is clearly observed & understood, the thinking process ceases to be dominant; its function is found to be relative & subordinate, serving man’s needs only at a functional level. Such understanding is pure intelligence free from causality; the meaningless thought processes of ‘self’-evaluation & related psychological fears, anxieties, insecurity, hatred & violence have ceased. “Intelligence has no cause.” “Intelligence is absolute security.” “Love has no cause.” – These are statements relevant to a mind that is no longer immersed in thraldom to its thought-imagery.
