The Speaking Tree : Contemplation And Compassion

Standard

The ennobling principle is characterised by J Krishnamurti as the essence of intelligence as distinct from intellect, from which arises the capacity to love. A truly intelligent mind is one which can comprehend and experience the sorrow of another as one’s own –and in this experience, the mind ‘‘feels’’ the interconnectedness of life, beyond the limited i-me-mine thought process which has conditioned us. Karuna is the great spiritual force which separates the evolved from the not-so-evolved, helping us to reach a more mature jignasa state of mind where it becomes easier to understand the deeper purpose of life and existence….

..Buddha saw the need to cultivate compassion as the trigger to develop detachment a paradoxical but a commonsense way to induce a detached attitude,detached from the limitations of ones own mind-matrix, by trying to understand the larger whole.And then,at some point of the journey,you need to detach yourself from the fabric of the Whole as well,to try and understand the design behind the complex code of life.

About G...

Evolving and revolving! Douglas Adams & Woody Allen are my soul mates from another era. My quirkiness is an eclectic mix of Jess (New Girl), Dharma and Carrie Bradshaw. Sharing my birthday with Paulo Coelho & Stephen Fry, i'm always reading a book and enjoy having engaging conversations about life and love. I take children, wit and play seriously, very seriously. I'm a renaissance soul who enjoys yoga, vodka with cranberry and doodling. Working in the field of Education and Story-telling, there are only two things i look forward to: Knowing myself and Everything that matters!
