Sample text

T: We are at an advantage in that any student coming here is disposed to look at his habits. Before he comes here, he approaches us and says, ‘Look, this sounds different’. That’s the most frequent thing said. So he’s disposed to it. K: I understand that. So how do you cultivate that, so that when he comes here, after a week he’s broken habit? That’s what I want to find out; I don’t want to waste my life on it. Can we put a bomb under each of us and the students? 40 T: The ones that do come looking for something different are the ones that do listen and do make some movement.

K: No, please, you’re going off to something else. I’m asking you only one thing, which is, have you a motive for wanting to go deeply into this? T: You mean a self-motive? K: A self-motive, conscious or unconscious motive, that is self-interest. T: If that’s the only motive you’re asking about, because I think we have to be clear, there’s self-motive, which is one thing, but there is also seeing violence is destructive, that it’s an impossible way to live, and wanting to resolve that. K: No, seeing the effects, what violence is.

You said that is necessary, but let’s give much more emphasis to the other, not divide it or break it up, but all together. T: It seems to me that a person can become excellent in mathematics, or whatever, without learning anything about relationships. K: That’s what we’re saying. So do we agree that as educators we must give much more emphasis to the other? T: If they were here for two or three years and got that part of it, when they left they could pick up the academic part in a flash; it would be no problem to them.
