I really love this article. I am currently reading Krishnamurti’s “Flight of the Eagle” and I am really enjoying his take on “stopping our thinking,” (as is often taught as the goal of meditation) and how he feels that this is not a good goal. It’s the same as what you wrote. We need to continue to grow. The trick, rather, is to stop responding automatically (based on our previous thoughts and responses) and to be more receptive to what is actually right in front of us.
