Are we together?

Are we together?

For one reason or another, people come to talk about what K said. I have heard people say, the K gathering is to question what he says. That usually means questioning the person of a philosopher, or whatever he is thought to be, and questioning an abstract philosophy, as it relates to oneself, or to some idea of an individual.

When some thing is said or written, am I listening and watching? The usual approach we use is intellectual. It is digesting the words, ideas, information, and responding on that verbal, measured, basis. What we think is together, is a connection based on tradition, language, politics, religion, and all that knowledge. This is all a separateness.

Together is carefully, watching and listening, not digesting and repeating all that stuff of connections and disconnections. When there is fundamentally, togetherness, when there is listening and watching, then there is something to share. Opinion, contradiction, disparagement, all that stuff, does not arise.

To be thinking to solve this experience, this condition, of separateness, or to diminish its relevance, is the nature of the separation. Worse, is to think it is a matter to manage, to put in order. The disorder is the terrible nature of life on the planet we have made and cultivate.

Are we together?

In these forum conversations, if a person is responding to the opposite person directly, then there could be a feeling of being together, I guess. :slightly_smiling_face:
