Mind is a Myth: Disquieting Conversations with the Man Called . I have assumed that the goal, enlightenment, exists. That is an impossible goal for you because everything you are doing to be at peace with yourself is what is destroying the peace that is already there. You have set in motion the movement of thought which is destroying the peace that is there, you see. It is very difficult to understand that all that you are doing is the impediment, is the one thing that is disturbing the harmony, the peace that is already there.

This is a scathing critique of contemporary spirituality by one of its most unusual figures. In a world in which spiritual techniques, teachers, concepts, and organisations are legion, U G Krishnamurti stands nearly alone in his rejection of it all: the natural state is a causal: it just happens. The author does not equate the natural state with enlightenment, which he describes as an illusion created by our culture. He states emphatically that one can do nothing to attain the natural state. 31 people like this topic.

This book is probably not going to appeal to people who are clinging to egocentric beliefs and doctrinal knowledge. It's not a practical guide and it's not a teaching. It's an invitation to let go and understand that everything you thought was meaningful is actually meaningless. It may seem dark, depressing, bleak, hopeless and that is because it sheds light on the fact that hope itself is a hoax. If meditation is your happy place, you will probably hate this book.
On the other hand if you value truth more than anything else, you will probably love this book. If you love Jed McKenna then you will probably love this book as well. It's about having the courage to shatter your false identity, your social conditioning and embrace a sacred mystery.

Again this is a classic. This is a contemporary of J Krishnamurti so not to be confused. But the message is fresh and different. Forget reaching enlightenment, he says; only happens at random to certain selected individuals and you cannot work to wards it. In fact there is not much you can do and going to teh bar to have a beer can be considered on the same level as attending mass in church. All is an illusion. But my words do not in any way convey the intelligence and depth of this author. A must read for anyone interested in meditation, spirituality of the search for truth.

After reading a lot of advaita books and other books about becoming mindfree for almost a lifetime, I can say this one is the most direct and to the point. This is not to say that all the other books were useless. In contrary, they were needed as a warm up for this one. At least some of them and as is my experience.

If you're looking for enlightenment, stop looking! ...there is no such thing tells us U.G..

Is he right? Who cares! ...he's interesting and that's good enough for me.

U.G. is a strange character who took the original ideas of Jiddu and went all the way with them until he nullified everything. There is so much of Jiddu in him, it is only fitting he dislikes him.

This is an interesting read and there is no way of knowing or communicating whether he is right or wrong until one morning you'll wake up and you'll just know. Until then we best enjoy ourselves.

We are always looking to get something whenever we embark on an activity...reading to get some insight, walking for some relaxation, chatting with friends to catch up with what's new. This book takes away everything and offers nothing. What's good about this? The mental construction business goes bankrupt. No other author to my knowledge has ever come close to achieving this impossible task. After UG, only a handful of books left to read (mostly his) and the questioning mind slowly comes to a complete stop.
