In one of the threads someone has said that subjectivity is an illusion. I can’t reply directly as I am not a member of that particular group. Subjectivity gets a rough deal on these pages, possibly because my self is subjective, but the scent of rain is entirely subjective, absolutely real and is not an illusion. You may say that life is a little more complex than that - unfortunately we are not dogs as Krishnamurti put it - and I get that but it could also be said that it is objectivity that is the illusion. As I understand it, duality can be seen as ‘me and my shadow’ and certainly one can be objective about one’s shadow, but consciousness is not a shadow of itself. The consciousness that is conscious of consciousness is the same consciousness that it is conscious of. Or, to put it another way, the observer is the observed. So, to me, Krishnamurti is not being objective here, quite the opposite in fact:
I am not seeking confrontation or challenging anyone, but, despite my reservations, I find myself being increasingly drawn away from studying the teachings and into the world of the dog.
Anybody want to throw a stick for me?
