Brockwood Park: Transformation of man

Brockwood Park is a school founded by Jiddu Krishnamurti and a group of partners in 1969, with the intention of carrying out their educational proposals. Education was one of the major concerns of the Indian from the very beginning of his career, and schools are one of the most suitable land to implement his teachings.

To that end, Brockwood settled in Hampshire (UK) as a private school for up to a small group of students as boarders. The community of teachers and students had a markedly international character, with people from more than twenty countries. The purpose was to awaken the intelligence of the student and the educator to the nature and consequences of their behavior and way of thinking, in all facets of daily life. The important thing is not to get the students get good grades, but is able to adequately face all the challenges of their relationship with the world.

One of the most significant activities of the institution are your open chats. In this, which took place in May 1976, Krishnamurti, the physicist David Bohm and psychoanalyst David Shainberg reflect on concepts like solitude, freedom, transformation, thought or mind.

A su vez el amor y el odio, hijos del deseo y no al revés, se parten cada uno en dos: el amor a uno mismo y el amor al otro, el odio a uno mismo y el odio al otro. Cuatro movimientos básicos, dos de atracción y dos de repulsión, de los que surgen todas las pasiones, aquí llamadas simplemente 'experiencias del deseo'. Las experiencias derivadas del apego a uno mismo como el narcisismo o el egoísmo; las derivadas del apego al otro como el sexo, el amor a los objetos o el amor al saber; las derivadas del odio a uno mismo como el masoquismo, la anorexia, la angustia o la desesperación; las derivadas del odio al otro como la venganza, el sadismo, el asesinato o la guerra son aquí percibidas como hijas de las fuerzas de atracción y repulsión del deseo, y entre todas conforman un fluido lleno de matices y contradicciones que anima por igual a los seres y las cosas.

A través de un discurso ajeno a los juicios morales y a las omisiones interesadas acerca de los abismos que constituyen la naturaleza humana, 'Las experiencias del deseo', obra de Jesús Ferrero ganadora del Premio Anagrama de Ensayo en el año 2009, va desplegando una geografía de las pasiones donde la negatividad es vista como una fuerza necesaria y fundamental que anima desde dentro la mecánica de la vida y el fluir del Universo. Por eso, las pasiones consideradas negativas y disgregadoras tienen aquí el mismo rango que las consideradas positivas y cohesionadoras, y por la misma razón se evitan conceptos como perversión, desviación o enfermedad para definir lo que en esencia sólo son, insiste el autor, experiencias del deseo. Ferrero consigue aunar el estudio de la filosofía y la psicología con la literatura, y va construyendo poco a poco, en siete partes y un epílogo, una historia sobre nuestros amores y nuestros odios y de cómo actúan en la persona desde el vientre materno hasta el fin de sus días. Desire is a force inherent in all matter and all being, manifested through attraction —eros, love— and repulsion —misos, hate—. In turn, the love and hate, sons of desire and not the opposite, are split each into two: the love of self and love the other, hate yourself and hate the other. Four basic movements, two of attraction and two of repulsion, from where arise all the passions, here simply called 'experiences of desire'. The experiences derived from attachment oneself as narcissism or selfishness; derived from attachment to other as sex or the love of things or knowledge; derived from self-hatred as masochism, anorexia, anxiety or desperation; derived from hate to another as revenge, sadism, murder or war are perceived here as daughters of the forces of attraction and repulsion of desire, and among all form a nuanced and contradictory fluid, which encourage beings and also things.

'Magnetic field', Berenice Abbott, 1982
Through a speech avoiding moral judgments and the depths that constitute human nature, 'The experiences of desire', the work of Jesús Ferrero winner of the Anagrama Essay Prize in 2009, unfolds a geography of passions where negativity is seen as a necessary and vital force that animates from within the mechanics of life and the flow of the Universe. Therefore, the considered negative and divisive passions have here the same range as those considered positive and integrative, and for the same reason concepts as perversion, diversion or disease are eliminated to define what are essentially only experiences of desire. Ferrero manages to combine the study of philosophy and psychology with literature, and gradually builds, into seven parts and an epilogue, a story about our loves and our hates and how they act in the person from birth to the end of his days.

Ante todo es un luchador —contra otros boxeadores, contra la herencia de los antepasados que esclavizaron a los suyos (nacido Cassius Clay, cambió su nombre por ese motivo), contra el gobierno estadounidense al negarse a ir a la guerra de Vietnam o contra su Alzheimer final— y una figura excepcionalmente valiente y coherente que ha influido en la sociedad como pocos personajes del siglo XX.

First and foremost is a fighter —against other boxers, against the heritage of ancestors who enslaved his people (born Cassius Clay, changed his name for that reason), against the US government by refusing to go to the Vietnam War or against his final Alzheimer— and an exceptionally brave and consistent figure that has influenced society as few characters of the twentieth century. Thanks to him, among others, many Americans of African descent learned to relate better to their origins. Famous also for its ingenious humorous sentences, some even see him as a forerunner of rap. In this video, answering an interviewer's question, explains his recipe for life: —4 cups of love —1 table spoon of patience —1 tea spoon of generosity —1 pint of kindness —1 quarter of laugh to —1 pinch of concern Mix all with purpose, happiness and lots of faith, then stir it up and spreading it during a lifetime."
