2016 International Krishnamurti Gathering

 

“WHY DOES THE MIND GROW OLD?”

 

ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL KRISHNAMURTI GATHERING THAILAND

CHESTNUT HILL ECO RESORT

3rd to 7th December 2016

‘It is old, is it not, in the sense of getting decrepit, deteriorating, repeating itself, caught in habits – sexual habits, religious habits, job habits, or various habits of ambition? The mind is so burdened with innumerable experiences and memories, so marred and scarred with sorrow that it cannot see anything freshly but is always translating what it sees in terms of its own memories, conclusions, formulas, always quoting; it is authority-bound; it is an old mind.

You can see why it happens. All our education is merely the cultivation of memory. Your brain soaks in what they have repeated, and you get your degree and go on with the process – the job, the routine, the incessant repetition. So, what is happening is that through pressure, through stress, through strain, our minds are being crowded, drowned by influence. We are wearing down the mind, not using it.’

The Book of Life
