Memory is essential according to J Krishnamurti because it has connection on how we understand the self. In his view, he deems that the actor, action, and end or result, is a unitary process, a single process, which comes into being when action has an end in view (The First and Last Freedom, 2001, reprinted 2008, page 38). He further expounds that memory is always in the past, and that memory is given life in the present by challenge. An action based experience is limiting and therefore a hindrance (Ibid, page 64).
Thought is a collective action of expereince, sensation, and experience. There is pleasure that is mantled through thought, and that pleasure is sought in the structure of the society. Experience is always strengthening the ‘me’. The more you are entrenched in your experience, the more does the self get strengthened.
