Observing my prejudice
September 14, 1979

Q: What is correct action in a deteriorating world?

The world is me and I am the world.

In this disordered, violent society with its terror, confusion, misery, what am I to do as a human being, what is my action? Is there an action that is accurate, precise and not self-centred?

Can I observe myself, which is the society without any distortion, without any illusion? I have prejudices of various kinds - opinions, prejudgements, experiences - to which my mind in memory is attached. What will make us, each one of us, drop our prejudices?

Is the observer different from the bundle of prejudices? I change completely when I see the truth that the observer is that bundle.
