Living Right Now
Insights of Krishnamurti and David Bohm
Welcome to a magical tour into a world beyond our thinking. Our guides are two men who shared a deep passion for solving the mystery of existence.
Living Right Now means seeing life as it actually is. We do NOT do so now because we are conditioned, programmed by ideas, concepts, images, and ideals. However, there is a world where our egos can never enter. The journey thereto starts from serious interest to find out and ends when we see that we are the world.
1. We are the world, and the world is us.
The world is whole and one, there is nothing separate in the universe. Everything is internally connected to everything, it is a flowing movement.
2. Thinking is the root cause of human crisis.
Thinking is a conditioned reflex, reacting automatically according to our experiences and knowledge. The idea of a separate 'me' is a mistake – it is a tragedy!
3. Seeing the world is being the world.
To see the world as it is, we need insight and intelligence. Direct perception connects us with the world and frees us from the movement of time.
Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) is one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers of our times. He spoke worldwide to large audiences about the need for a radical change in human mind. His books have been published in over 50 languages.
David Bohm (1917-1992) is one of the most eminent theoretical physicists of the past century. In his books and seminars, he expressed revolutionary thoughts about thinking and its meaning. He was a Professor of Theoretical Physics at Birkbeck College, University of London.
In these three books Heikki Peltola introduces the radical worldview of Krishnamurti and Bohm.

Insights into Immensity (2015) is a summary of 52 dialogues that Krishnamurti and Bohm had between 1965 and 1983. It shows what is wrong with the human mind and how to change it. The solution is simple: we must free our minds from the tyranny of thought.
Whole and One (2020) invites you to see and be the world based on David Bohm's radical ideas about the essence of life. These insights blow your mind and change your view of the world. The book takes the reader to a world where egos cannot enter.
Right Now (2023) takes you to the world behind words and images, and urges to live with what is. Living with the facts means seeing miracles in the world, in others - and in oneself. Connecting to the world is the best possible way to live!
Heikki Peltola is a Finnish writer, whose interest in Krishnamurti and Bohm started in 1977. He met both men and wrote articles about them in the eighties. Later he was asked to write a summary about the dialogues between them. After the book was published he was asked to a scientific group studying David Bohm's solution to the world's problems raised in the United Nations' Agenda 2030. He is also a member of Systems Intelligence Research Group in Aalto University.
In his book RIGHT NOW (2023) he summarizes the insights he has learned.
