Extra info for Action: A Selection of Passages from the Teachings of J. Krishnamurti (1st Edition)
But idea separated from action creates conflict. Action includes compassion; it is not just at the technological level, or at the level of relationship between husband and wife, or between the individual and the community, but it is a total movement of one’s whole being. I am talking about total action, not action in fragmentation. When there is observation and therefore no observer—the observer being the idea, the word—and you begin to understand this whole complex thing called the self, the ‘me’, then you will know this total action, not the separative, fragmentary action in which there is conflict.
298-9 25 Let us therefore find out together what we mean by action without idea. Questioner: For truth to come, you advocate action without idea. Is it possible to act at all times without idea, that is, without a purpose in view? KRISHNAMURTI: I am not advocating anything. I am not a propagandist, political or religious. I am not inviting you to any new experience. All that we are doing is trying to find out what action is. You are not following me to find out. If you do, then you will never find out.
That is, can I die to each action throughout the day, so that the mind never accumulates and is therefore never contaminated by the past, but is always new, fresh, innocent? I say that such a thing is possible, that one can live in this way—but that does not mean it is real for you. You have to find out for yourself. Saanen, 10th Public Talk, August 2, 1964 Collected Works, Vol. XIV, pp. 222-3 52 V. Total Action Find out for yourself what is this extraordinary thing, an action which is total. Is there an action which is not the outcome of choice, of ideation, of a decision, but is the total feeling of action?
