J. Krishnamurti & Swami Venkatesananda – Saanen 1969 – Dialogue 2 – Can one experience the infinite?
Why do we always attach ourselves to something which we suppose to be the highest?
We use the word ‘experience’ very easily. Can we experience the feeling of supreme ecstasy? Can we experience the infinite?
Can the mind which is conditioned, prejudiced and frightened experience the highest?
When fear and conditioning cease, is there experiencing of the highest at all?
If the entity which is fear and anxiety has dissolved its fear, what is there to experience?
What is the purpose of experience? Is there the need of experience at all?
Being in a state in which there is no peace, we want to experience a state of absolute, permanent, eternal peace.
If the mind can free itself from agony then what is the need to ask for an experience of the supreme?
