<----CONDITIONING---->

---Krishnasurfi's thought for the day---->  if the mind is unconditioned it is free…..so we are going to find out, examine very closely, what makes the mind so conditioned, what are the influences that have brought about this conditioning, and why we accept it…..first of all, tradition plays an enormous part in life……in that tradition the brain has developed so that it can find physical security……one cannot live without security, that is the very first, primary animal demand, that there be physical security; one must have a house, food, clothing……but the psychological way in which we use this necessity for security brings about chaos within and without…..the psyche, which is the very structure of thought, also wants to be secure inwardly, in all its relationships…..then the trouble begins…..there must be physical security for everybody, not only for the few; but that physical security for everybody is denied when psychological security is sought through nations, through religions, through the family……..

it is odd that we have so little relationship with nature, with the insects and the leaping frog, and the owl that hoots among the hills calling for its mate…..we never seem to have a feeling for all living things on the earth…..if we could establish a deep, abiding relationship with nature, we would never kill an animal for our appetite, we would never harm, vivisect, a monkey, a dog, a guinea pig for our benefit….we would find other ways to heal our wounds, heal our bodies…..but the healing of the mind is something totally different.……that healing gradually takes place if you are with nature, with that orange on the tree, and the blade of grass that pushes through the cement, and the hills covered, hidden, by the clouds……
