Questioner: consequently in this love you talk about there might be no intercourse because there may not be desire?
Krishnamurti: do not, please, arrived at any conclusion. We have been investigating, checking out. Any summary or presumption stops further enquiry. To respond to this question we’ve and also to glance at the power of idea. Believe, once we have actually said, sustains pleasure by considering a thing that happens to be enjoyable, cultivating the image, the image. Thought engenders pleasure. Taking into consideration the act that is sexual lust, which can be completely not the same as the work of intercourse. Just exactly What many people are focused on may be the passion of lust. Craving before and after sex is lust. This craving is thought. Attention is certainly not love.
Questioner: perhaps there is sex without this desire of idea? Krishnamurti: you must learn on your own. Sex plays an extraordinarily essential component within our everyday lives we have because it is perhaps the only deep, firsthand experience. Intellectually and emotionally we conform, imitate, follow, obey. There clearly was strife and pain in all our relationships, except within the act of intercourse. This work, being therefore various and stunning, we become dependent on, therefore it in change turns into a bondage. The bondage could be the need for its extension again the action regarding the centre which will be divisive. One can be so hedged about intellectually, into the household, in the neighborhood, through social morality, through religious sanctions so hedged about that there’s just that one relationship left in which there was freedom and intensity. Therefore we give tremendous value to it. But then this would not be such a craving and such a problem if there were freedom all around. We ensure it is a problem because we can not get an adequate amount of it, or because we feel bad at having started using it, or because in getting it we break the principles which culture has set down. It’s the society that is old calls the latest society permissive because when it comes to brand new society intercourse is runetki us part of life. In freeing your brain through the bondage of replica, authority, conformity and religious prescriptions, intercourse has its own spot, but it will not be all consuming. With this it’s possible to note that freedom is vital for love maybe perhaps perhaps not the freedom of revolt, perhaps maybe not the freedom of accomplishing exactly exactly just what one likes nor of indulging freely or secretly an individual’s cravings, but instead the freedom which is available in the knowledge of this structure that is whole nature associated with the centre. Then freedom is love.
Questioner: So freedom just isn’t licence?
Krishnamurti: No. Licence is bondage. Love just isn’t hate, nor envy, nor aspiration, nor the competitive spirit with its concern about failure. It is really not the passion for god nor the love of guy which once again is really a unit. Love is certainly not associated with the one or of many. If you have think itвЂ™s great is impersonal and personal, with and with no item. It really is like the perfume of a flower; one or numerous can smell it: what truly matters may be the perfume, to not who it belongs. Questioner: Where does forgiveness also come in all this work?
Krishnamurti: if you find love there is no forgiveness. Forgiveness comes just once you’ve accumulated rancour; forgiveness is resentment. Where there isn’t any injury you don’t have for recovery. It is inattention that breeds resentment and hate, and you also become conscious of them then forgive. Forgiveness encourages unit. If you are aware that you will be forgiving, then you’re sinning. If you’re aware you are tolerant, then you’re intolerant. If you are aware that you’re quiet, then there’s no silence. Whenever you intentionally start to love, then you’re violent. Provided that there clearly was an observer whom claims, “we am” or “I have always been not”, love may not be. Questioner: just just What destination has fear in love? Krishnamurti: how will you ask such a concern? Where one is, one other is certainly not. If you find love you are able to do everything you will.
