What is the point?

Communication is attuned to leading to some point.  Yet there is a difficulty because we don’t want to be told what to do, or we are seeking independence, or we have some preference for a self centered perception, or want to maintain a belief or an ideology.  So rather than realise what the communication is about, we are rebelling against, or ignoring, the actual communication.  We do this by clever use of words and concepts, and by quibbling about some interpretation of a phrase or word.  Rather than actually listen, and then see what we think, we believe the other is an authority, and think in terms of trust , leadership,  or compliance and obedience, and react. The reaction to words and ideas is not listening.  We may read or hear words and conclude with what we think we understand, but in the first instance we do not appreciate communication is conveying something to realise. We may already know what the communication is saying, but not realise communing together, effortlessly, without any facility,  is the point; not the information.   We have turned off from co-operating and prefer systematic instructions and information, although, contrarily, only where it suits us.

    Yes, that’s me. I feel it. Also is the Me.
    I mostly do what i know since i am used to it and therefore i’m a… Ac.. reacting, repeating what i know to avoid a feeling. This is because i am not aware. When aware, there is action without thought, But! Isn’t this to be unaware? … When i am unaware … may there be action? Yes, unconscious action being liberated.
    I am losing myself, i read what i wrote and see if it is.
    I see contradiction in my phrases.
    I read again, oh! And i see i am repeating an action. I see im not aware when i express. Not completely.
    So, since “unaware” to “completely aware” i thought it takes time but its intantly.

    I fear to forget, to not continue myself. Not a thought is this but the understanding of myself. I see that i thought “i know what Krishnamurti says, i’ve understood”. But! Every time is different since life is not fixed…? I see wheter i talk or write i am personal and yes, it is telling my life to someone. And i fear someone says “it’s your problem”. I don’t want to inquire. This is not meaning necesary to be alone. Therefore, my answer.
    What do you think?
