Krishnamurti has called this ′choiceless awareness′. It is completely detached observation.
Thinking is the action of the conscious within the conscious, while observation is the penetration of the unconscious by the conscious.
The unconscious reveals its secrets not to thought but to observation, because in the absence of suppression the impulses and tendencies of the unconscious rise up naturally, spontaneously, in their total nakedness and reality, and it is then no longer necessary to hide those impulses, tendencies and passions.
From meditation to observation, from observation to knowledge, from knowledge to freedom – this is the path.
