A Dialogue with Oneself...

. . . it is important to understand, not intellectually but actually in your daily life, how you have built images about your wife, your husband, your neighbor, your child, your country, your leaders, your politicians, your gods--you have nothing but images.

The images create the space between you and what you observe and in that space there is conflict, so what we are going to find out now together is whether it is possible to be free of the space we create, not only outside ourselves but in ourselves, the space which divides people in all their relationships.

Now the very attention you give to a problem is the energy that solves that problem. When you give your complete attention--I mean with everything in you--there is no observer at all. There is only the state of attention which is total energy, and that total energy is the highest form of intelligence. Naturally that state of mind must be completely silent and that silence, that stillness, comes when there is total attention, not disciplined stillness. That total silence in which there is neither the observer nor the thing observed is the highest form of a religious mind. But what takes place in that state cannot be put into words because what is said in words is not the fact. To find out for yourself you have to go through it.

-- J. Krishnamurti, Freedom from the Known, pp. 92-93

People laugh because I am different.
And I laugh because they are all the same. That's called ATTITUDE

Bitter Truths

  • The plain fact is that if you don't have a problem, you create one. If you don't have a problem you don't feel that you are living.
  • A messiah is the one who leaves a mess behind him in this world
  • The human organism is not interested in your wonderful religious ideas--peace, bliss, beatitude or any such thing. Its only interest is survival. What society has placed before us as the goal to reach and attain is the enemy of this living organism
  • Cabbages are more alive than human beings
  • There is no such thing as 'knowledge' for the sake of knowledge. Knowledge is power. "I know. You don't know".
  • As a human body it is an extraordinary piece of creation. But as a human being he is rotten because of the culture.
  • You are more useful to the Nature dead than alive.
  • The body does not exist except as a thought. There is one thought. Everything exists in relationship to that one thought. That thought is 'me'. Anything you experience based on thought is illusion.
  • Unless you are free from the desire of all desires, Moksha, liberation, or self-realisation, you will be miserable
  • Why should life have any meaning? Why should there be any purpose to living? Living itself is all that is there. Your search for spiritual meaning has made a problem out of living.
  • When you know nothing, you say a lot. When you know something, there is nothing to say.

Start Where you are.......

Life is a search--constant search, a desperate search, a hopeless search, a search for something one knows not. There is a deep urge to seek, but one knows not what one is seeking. And there is a certain state of mind in which whatsoever you get is not going to give you any satisfaction. Frustation seems to be the destiny of humanity because whatsover you get it, it becomes meaningless the very moment you have it. You start searchig again....

The search continues whether you get anything or not. It seems irrelevant --what you have and what you don't have. The poor are searching, the rich are searching, the ill are searching, the well are searching, the powerful are searching, the powerless are searching, the wise are searching, the stupid are searching ane nobody knows what for......

Some of the best lines I've read......

Keeping a smile on your face,
When inside you feel like dying,
For the sake of supporting others,
....means Strength

Standing for what you believe in,
Regardless of the odds against you,
And the pressure that tears at your resistance,
....means Courage

Stopping at nothing,
And doing what's in your heart,
You know is right,
....means Determination

Doing more than is Expected,
To make another's life a little more bearable,
Without uttering a single complaint,
....means Compassion

Helping a friend in need,
No matter the time or effort,
To the best of your ability,
...means Loyality

Giving more than you have,
And expecting nothing in return,
But nothing in return,
...means Selflessness

Holding your head high,
And being the best you know you can be,
When life seems to fall apart at your feet,
Facing each difficulty with the confidence,
That time will bring you better tommorow's,
And never giving up,
...means Confidence

To the question of your life,
You are the only Answer.
To the problems of your life,
You are the only Solution.
