Krishnamurti with Donald Ingram Smith
This conversation between Krishnamurti and Donald Ingram Smith, entitled Awareness is a mirror in which the movement of thought is perceived, was recorded in Ojai, California in 1977. Krishnamurti asks whether all of consciousness is made up of its content. Can thought be aware of itself? Is whatever thought has created reality? Intelligence is not a product of thought. Thought has limited itself, made itself a fragment. Attention is the summation of all energy.
