Denne gang har jeg fået et spørgsmål fra Peter, som beder mig tale om et lille afsnit som han har taget fra en bog af U.G.Krisnamurti
Du finder mit svar nederst :-)
Uddraget er som følger:
Q: Unless you have to catch a train or something, you are living in the present moment?
UG: To call it ‘living from moment to moment’ is very misleading.
That moment to moment living can never be captured by you — that can never become part of your conscious existence, much less your conscious thinking.
Look here, there is no present to the structure of the ‘you’; all that is there is the past, which is trying to project itself into the future.
You can think about past, present, and future, but there is no future, there is no present; there is only the past.
Your future is only a projection of the past.
If there is a present, that present can never be experienced by you, because you experience only your knowledge about the present, and that knowledge is the past.
So what is the point in trying to experience that moment which you call ‘now’?
The now can never be experienced by you; whatever you experience is not the now.
So the now is a thing which can never become part of your conscious existence, and which you cannot give expression to.
The now does not exist, as far as you are concerned, except as a concept.
I don’t talk about the now.
