Der er ikke noget sådant som min lære; du skal ikke forstå læren; du skal forstå dig selv. Hele formålet med læren er at få dig til at indse hvor vigtigt det er at forstå dig selv .
Thought is responsible for our confusion | J. Krishnamurti
Extract from Public Talk 4, Madras, India, 1981
“All thinking is a reaction, a response of memory. Thought can never bring about freedom because freedom is not a response or a result. Freedom is not the rejection of the things we know or the things that give us pain or the attachment to something which gives us pleasure and to which we have become slaves. The whole structure of our consciousness, of our thought, is the residue, the reservoir of reactions. Revolution and revolt are essentially reactions”
From Public Talk 3 in Saanen, 11 July 1963
“Psychologically we have created walls around ourselves, walls of resistance, walls of hope, fear, greed, envy, ambition, desire for position, power, prestige. They are created by the thinker. The thinker has created the space around himself in which he lives, and there he is never free. Beauty is not only the thing that you see; that’s a very small part. Beauty is not the result of thought, is not put together by thought. Like love, thought has no place where affection is. Where there is jealousy, envy, greed, ambition, and pride—love is not. We all know that. But, to find out what it means to love, there must surely be freedom from all travail, all jealousy, all envy. Then we will know.
In the same way, to be free implies no psychological walls created by the center. Freedom means space. Freedom also implies an end to time, not abstractly but actually. Freedom means to live completely today because we have understood the whole structure, the nature, and the meaning of the past. The past is the conscious as well as the unconscious. We have understood the whole of that. Because of that understanding, there is the active present, which is living. Can this actually happen in our daily life?”
Talk 5, Paris, 1966
