What is the operation of thought? 14 July 1974. Duration: 84 minutes. In the world around us and inside us, is there a relationship between the inner and the outer? Are you free to listen, or do you listen with interpretation and prejudices? Do I observe the content of my consciousness as an outsider? Can one observe the content without choice? If you look with eyes that are divided, is there not conflict between you and another?
Is division between the observer and the observed? Is it intelligent for thought to create and maintain division while talking about peace? Is there an intelligence which is not cunning and is not the function or result of thought? Questions from the audience follow the talk.
Is there energy not based on idea or ideology? 16 July 1974. Duration: 84 minutes. Why is thought divisive? The desire to change in a particular direction gives an energy that is divisive. Will you free the mind taking time, through analysis, or can you look totally and therefore be totally free? Does choice less rejection of the false give a different kind of energy? Does a foundation give me direction, or does it bring confusion? Is the operation of intelligence insight? Questions from the audience follow the talk.
Can thought bring order? 18 July 1974. Duration: 87 minutes. Are thoughts, feelings, reactions and relationships merely mechanical? Is there any other movement? Where there is a cause, there is time, and so living becomes relative. Is my relationship with another based on opinions, memories, demands and sexual appetites? Is there a way of living which has no cause?
Do I actually see disorder or only its description? Is it only when the 'me' is nonexistent that I am related? What takes place when the mind has order and a sense of total relationship? Can the mind be free of the word to look and discover its disorder? Questions from the audience follow the talk.
Can the mind not be a slave to knowledge? 21 July 1974. Duration: 93 minutes. When consciousness invents a superconsciousness, is it a part of thought aware of the past? Is there a part of the brain which has not been touched by the known? Is it our education to escape from 'what is' through ideals?
