‘When you are free, when the brain is free of measurement, the very brain cells that have been used to measurement, conditioned by measurement, have suddenly awakened to the truth.’
This week’s episode on Measurement has five sections.
The first extract (2:26) is from the fifth question and answer meeting in Saanen 1980, titled ‘We have fallen into the habit of measurement’.
The second extract (28:18) is from Krishnamurti’s sixth talk in Saanen 1983, titled ‘The ‘better’ is measurable.’
The third extract (40:34) is from the second talk at Brockwood Park in 1972, titled ‘Measurement brings fragmentation’.
The fourth extract (1:01:52) is from the third question and answer meeting in Ojai 1982, titled ‘Where there is measurement there is no spirituality’.
The final extract in this episode (1:07:31) is from Krishnamurti’s seventh talk in Saanen 1978, titled ‘Attention is freedom from measurement’.
Season three of the Krishnamurti podcast continues with the format of carefully chosen extracts from the philosopher’s talks. Each weekly episode focusses on a theme explored by Krishnamurti and the aim is to represent his different approaches to these universal topics.
