Background

A description of the experience

J. Krishnamurti – The Network of Thought

Now, is there another form of learning; learning, not in the context of knowledge, but a different form, a non accumulative perception action? To find out we have to enquire whether it is possible to observe …. the world without a single prejudice. Is that possible? Do not say it is not possible, just ask the question.....

Any form of prejudice, however noble or ignoble will actually prevent perception. When you see that, prejudices go. What is important is not the prejudice but the demand to see clearly.

If you observe a rose, a flower, without the word, without naming the colour, but just look at it, then that look brings about great sensitivity, breaks down this sense of heaviness of the brain, and gives extraordinary vitality. There is a totally different kind of energy when there is pure perception.

The source of the experience

Krishnamurti, Jiddu
