Over a period of twenty years, the quantum physicist David Bohm and spiritual teacher J. Krishnamurti engaged in a series of dialogues to explore how each of their perspectives could deepen each other’s understanding of life. Their dialogues touch on multiple fundamental themes. In this Merry Musing we will explore the core themes and how a view from the new physics relates to ancient spiritual teachings. In the coming Musings we will dive deep into a number of the themes they touch on, including Time and Thought.
The Integral Leadership Review is publishing the series of dialogues that I have been having with Nish Dubashia inspired by David Bohm and J Krishnamurti’s dialogues. The full dialogues can also be found on our YouTube channel. Here is the first transcript in the December edition of the Integral Leadership Review.
Here is the recording of a dialogue with me and Nish Dubashia inspired by the work of David Bohm and J Krishnamurti. We explore patterns and themes that connect religions and spiritual traditions. It is part of the Humanity Rising series.
As part of Ubiquity’s Humanity Rising series, Peter Merry hosts a dialogue with British writer, Integral thinker and long-time spiritual practitioner Nish Dubashia on the nature of reality and the relationship between wholeness, multiplicity and fragmentation. Nish is the author of “The Unity of Everything: A Dialogue with David Bohm”, and (under the pen name Nishad Cote) of “Gifted: The Story of a Young Genius” and “Dancing with Angels: One Man’s Search for the Meaning of Life”.
Peter and Nish will explore the work of David Bohm and Jiddu Krishnamurti, and how making a clear distinction between multiplicity and fragmentation can help us to understand some of the challenges the world has had in responding to various crises such as the coronavirus. With both of them also being well versed in Integral Theory and Spiral Dynamics, it promises to be a broad ranging dialogue exploring a variety of subjects. They will also discuss Nish’s “Diamond Model” of Reality that Nish explored with David Bohm in 1991, and how this model finds remarkable parallels in the work of Bohm, Krishnamurti and Ken Wilber, as well as in both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions.
Nish Dubashia and I have been having a series of great dialogues inspired by the dialogues of David Bohm and J Krishnamurti. Nish met Bohm who appreciated his model that integrates the world’s religious and mystical traditions. We recorded the dialogues and have decided to share them with the world via this YouTube channel. And we’re not done yet! Enjoy!
