    EXPLORATION: The Paradox of Change | David Moody

    EXPLORATION: The Paradox of Change | David Moody

    Welcome back to The Immeasurable Podcast. This episode is a recording from this year’s Online May Gathering, a talk given by David Moody called “The Paradox of Change," followed by a Q&A with Karen Hesli, Nandini Patnaik, and David Moody. 

     David Edmund Moody, Ph.D., is the author of three books about Krishnamurti. His most recent book is Krishnamurti in America: New Perspectives on the Man and his Message. This book represents a full-scale biography of Krishnamurti’s life, with special attention to the events in America that have not been covered well in previous biographies.

    Moody was the first teacher hired when Krishnamurti founded the Oak Grove School in Ojai, California, in 1975.  He subsequently served as educational director of the school, and as director, the position he held at the time of Krishnamurti’s death in 1986.  He later took his Ph.D. in science education (UCLA, 1991) with a focus on student misconceptions in the study of biological evolution.

    INTERVIEW: Being With Krishnamurti | James Lee Dixon interviewed by Jaap Sluijter

    INTERVIEW: Being With Krishnamurti | James Lee Dixon interviewed by Jaap Sluijter

    Jaap Sluijter interviews James "Jim" Lee Dixon about the time he spent with J. Krishnamurti. Jim Dixon was a renowned carpet and art collector, master gardener, friend of the Foundation and prior owner/donor of the Occidental, California property which will now become a Krishnamurti Center. Jim attended many of Krishnamurti's talks and found the work of K  to be the most important project to support with his estate.

    Jim will be missed dearly, but his passion for the teachings, and the perfume of love he left behind, will remain alive and well in Occidental, California and beyond.

    In remembrance of James Lee Dixon, August 26th 1943-March 23rd 2020

    J. Krishnamurti - Ojai 1982 - Discussion with Scientists 2 - Psychological Suffering

    Summary:

    What is security?

    I have an image about myself. I am a great cook, a great scientist, a great carpenter, whatever you will. I have got that picture in myself and you come along and put a pin into it. And that gets hurt, the image gets hurt. The image is me.

    What is a human being?

    You are not basically different from me. You may be tall, you may be born in England, I may be born in Africa, I have dark skin, but deep down, the river, the content of the river is the water. The river is not an Asiatic river or European river, it is a river.
    Love is not English, American or Indian. Agony is not yours or mine, it is agony. But we identify ourselves with agony - it is my agony, which is not yours. Why do we want to identify with something?

    Is there a learning about oneself which is not constant accumulation about myself?
