- Jan 1, 2008I thought this reading from the I Ching relates to what we were
talking about related Krishnamurti. This was the changing hexagram
58. Tui / The Joyous, Lake:
"A lake evaporates upward and thus gradually dries up; but when two lakes
are joined they do not dry up so readily, for one replenishes the other. It is
the same in the field of knowledge. Knowledge should be a refreshing and
vitalizing force. It becomes so only through stimulating intercourse with
congenial friends with whom one holds discussion and practices application
of the truths of life. In this way learning becomes many-sided and takes on a
cheerful lightness, whereas there is always something ponderous and one-
sided about the learning of the self-taught."
Bohm and the other Krishnamurti saw the characteristic in the last
half of the last sentence in J. Krishnamurti.
We really need peers.
