Second Conversation with David Bohm, John Hidley and Rupert Sheldrake in Ojai

Saturday, April 17, 1982

  • Second Discussion with Drs. Bohm, Hidley & Sheldrake
  • What is security?
  • I have an image about myself. I am a great cook, a great scientist, a great carpenter, whatever you will. I have got that picture in myself and you come along and put a pin into it. And that gets hurt, the image gets hurt. The image is me.
  • What is a human being?
  • You are not basically different from me. You may be tall, you may be born in England, I may be born in Africa, I have dark skin, but deep down, the river, the content of the river is the water. The river is not an Asiatic river or European river, it is a river.
  • Love is not English, American or Indian. Agony is not yours or mine, it is agony. But we identify ourselves with agony - it is my agony, which is not yours. Why do we want to identify with something?
  • Is there a learning about oneself which is not constant accumulation about myself?
