Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “If silence is not put together by thought, then what is it? To see clearly you must be silent, to hear clearly the mind must not be chattering. If you see the truth of it, then it happens. You do not have to make an effort to be silent.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “When there is smoke, how can there be a pure flame?”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “If I run after it, it is not love, it is a reward. In my inquiry, slowly, carefully, without distortion, without illusion, I have negated everything that it is not, and the other is.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “In a deep river there is richness and many fish can live; but the shallow pool is soon dried up by the strong sun, and nothing remains except mud and dirt. For most of us, love is an extraordinarily difficult thing to understand because our lives are very shallow.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “A man who says he knows is already dead. But the man who thinks, “I don’t know,” who is discovering, finding out, who is not seeking an end, not thinking in terms of arriving or becoming – such a man is living, and that living is truth.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Do you know what time is? Not by the watch, not chronological time, but psychological time? It is the interval between idea and action.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Actual freedom is freedom from dependency, attachment, from the craving for experience. Freedom from the very structure of thought is to be a light to oneself.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Do Ideas Limit Action? Can ideas ever produce action, or do ideas merely mold thought and therefore limit action? When action is compelled by an idea, action can never liberate man. It is extraordinarily important for us to understand this point. If an idea shapes action, then action can never bring about the solution to our miseries because, before it can be put into action, we have first to discover how the idea comes into being.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “As long as there is conflict, it indicates that we have not understood the conditions placed about us; and that movement of environment remains false so long as we do not inquire into its significance, and we can only discover it in that state of acute consciousness of suffering.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “There is no ideal in observation. When you have an ideal, you cease to observe, you are then merely approximating the present to the idea, and therefore there is duality, conflict, and all the rest of it. The mind has to be in the state when it can see, observe. The experience of the observation is really an astonishing state. In that there is no duality. The mind is simply – aware.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “When you are young you are curious to know all about everything, why the sun shines, what the stars are, all about the moon and the world around us; but as we grow older, knowledge becomes a mere collection of information without any feeling.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Intelligence is not knowledge. If you could read all the books in the world it would not give you intelligence. Intelligence is something very subtle; it has no anchorage. It comes into being only when you understand the total process of the mind – not the mind according to some philosopher or teacher, but your own mind. Your mind is the result of all humanity, and when you understand it you don’t have to study a single book, because the mind contains the whole knowledge of the past.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “When the mother and father love their children, they do not compare them, they do not compare their child with another child; it is their child and they love their child. But you want to compare yourself with something better, with something nobler, with something richer, so you create in yourself a lack of love.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “If you do not allow time, or never think in terms of time, then the fact is not. Because we allow time the fact becomes important. If there is no time it is resolved.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “When there is real danger time disappears, doesn’t it? There is immediate action. But we do not see the danger of many of our problems and therefore we invent time as a means of overcoming them. Time is a deceiver as it doesn’t do a thing to help us bring about a change in ourselves. Time is a movement which man has divided into past, present and future, and as long as he divides it he will always be in conflict.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Truth has no path, and that is the beauty of truth, it is living. A dead thing has a path to it because it is static, but when you see that the truth is something living, moving, which has no resting place, which is in no temple, mosque or church, which no religion, no teacher, no philosopher, nobody can lead you to – then you will also see that this living thing is what you actually are.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Again, you have the idea that only certain people hold the key to the Kingdom of Happiness. No one holds it. No one has the authority to hold that key. That key is your own self, and in the development and the purification and in the incorruptibility of that self alone is the Kingdom of Eternity.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “One society will condemn those who believe in God, and another society will condemn those who do not. They are both the same.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “It is only in virtue that you can discover, that you can live – not in the cultivation of a virtue, which merely brings about respectability, not understanding and freedom.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “But sorrow is not to be compared. Comparison breeds self-pity, and then misfortune ensues. Adversity is to be met directly, not with the idea that yours is greater than another’s.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “But, you see, happiness does not come so easily, because happiness is in none of these things. You may have pleasure, you may find a new satisfaction, but sooner or later it becomes wearisome. Because there is no lasting happiness in the things we know. The kiss is followed by the tear, laughter by misery and desolation. Everything withers, decays. So, while you are young you must begin to find out what is this strange thing called happiness. That is an essential part of education.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Relationship is a process of self-revelation, of self-knowledge. This self-revelation is painful, demanding constant adjustment, pliability of thought-emotion. It is a painful struggle, with periods of enlightened peace...”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “When I understand myself, I understand you, and out of that understanding comes love. Love is the missing factor; there is a lack of affection, of warmth in relationship; and because we lack that love, that tenderness, that generosity, that mercy in relationship, we escape into mass action which produces further confusion, further misery. We fill our hearts with blueprints for world reform and do not look to that one resolving factor which is love.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “But if you still want to find out, you will see that fear is not love, dependence is not love, jealousy is not love, possessiveness and domination are not love, responsibility and duty are not love, self-pity is not love, the agony of not being loved is not love, love is not the opposite of hate any more than humility is the opposite of vanity.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Alone has quite a different meaning; alone has beauty. To be alone means something entirely different. And you must be alone. When man frees himself from the social structure of greed, envy, ambition, arrogance, achievement, status – when he frees himself from those, then he is completely alone. That is quite a different thing. Then there is great beauty, the feeling of great energy.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “The respectable, like the despised, are always at the mercy of circumstances; the influences of environment and the weight of tradition are vastly important to them, for these hide their inward poverty.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “The mind is not a plaything of the brain, whose function is mechanical.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “The pursuit, all the world over, of gurus and their systems, reading the latest books on this and that, and so on, seems to me so utterly empty, so utterly futile, for you may wander all over the earth but you have to come back to yourself. And, as most of us are totally unaware of ourselves, it is extremely difficult to begin to see clearly the process of our thinking and feeling and acting. The.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “You are waiting for me to describe what this silence is so that you can compare it, interpret it, carry it away and bury it. It cannot be described. What can be described is the known, and the freedom from the known can come into being only when there is a dying every day to the known, to the hurts, the flatteries, to all the images you have made, to all your experiences – dying every day so that the brain cells themselves become fresh, young, innocent.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “You see, as long as we try to overcome, the very overcoming has to be overcome. But if you say, “Yes, it is a fact and I won’t move from that,” then the thing dissolves – completely, not relatively, not gone one day and then the next day is full of fears. It is gone when you have given complete attention to.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Are we ever alone? Or are we carrying with us all the burdens of yesterday?”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Before you try to change and alter thought and feeling, find out the manner of their working, and you will see that they are continually adjusting themselves within the limitations established by that point fixed by desire and the fulfillment of that desire. In awareness there is no discipline.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Beware of the man who offers you a reward in this world or in the next.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “When you love, you are not lonely. The sense of loneliness arises only when you are frightened of being alone and of not knowing what to do. When you are controlled by ideas, isolated by beliefs, then fear is inevitable; and when you are afraid, you are completely blind.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “To be free we have to revolt against all inward dependence, and we cannot revolt if we don’t understand why we are dependent. Until we understand and really break away from all inward dependence we can never be free, for only in that understanding can there be freedom.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “If one gets used to disturbance it means that one’s mind has become dull, just as one can get so used to beauty around one that one no longer notices it.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Learning is possible only when there is no coercion of any kind.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Authority in its very nature prevents the full awareness of oneself and therefore ultimately destroys freedom; in freedom alone can there be creativeness.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “In order to observe the movement of your own mind and heart, of your whole being, you must have a free mind, not a mind that agrees and disagrees, taking sides in an argument, disputing over mere words, but rather following with an intention to understand – a very difficult thing to do because most of us don’t know how to look at, or listen to, our own being any more than we know how to look at the beauty of a river or listen to the breeze among the trees.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Freedom is to stand alone, unattached and unafraid, free in the understanding of desire which breeds illusion. There is a vast strength in being alone. It is the conditioned, programmed brain that is never alone, for it is filled with knowledge. That which is programmed, religiously or technologically, is always limited. This limitation is the major factor of conflict.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “The question of whether or not there is a God or Truth or Reality, or whatever you like to call it, can never be answered by books, by priests, philosphers or saviours. Nobody and nothing can answer the question but you yourself and that is why you must know your self. Immaturity lies in total ignorance of self. To understand yourself is the beginning of wisdom.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Peace is not something petty, created by the mind; it is enormously great, infinitely extensive, and it can be understood only when the heart is full.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Any feeling of malice or envy, however slight it may be, is also destructive of this creative understanding without which there is no happiness.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “What matters is to understand pleasure, not try to get rid of it – that is too stupid. Nobody can get rid of pleasure.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “You compare yourself with somebody, compare yourself with an example, with the ultimate ideal. Comparative judgment makes the mind dull; it does not sharpen the mind, it does not make the mind comprehensive, inclusive, because, when you are all the time comparing, what has happened? You see the sunset, and you immediately compare that sunset with the previous sunset.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Compassion, as love, is something which is not of the mind. The mind is not conscious of itself as being compassionate, as loving. But the moment you forgive consciously, the mind is strengthening its own center in its own hurt. So the mind which consciously forgives can never forgive; it does not know forgiveness; it forgives in order not to be further hurt.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Observe your own emotional states and you will see that the moments of great joy, great ecstasy, are unpremeditated; they happen, mysteriously, darkly, unknowingly.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “Seeing everything that goes on in your daily life, your daily activities – when you pick up a pen, when you talk, when you go out for a drive or when you are walking alone in the woods – can you with one breath, with one look, know yourself very simply as you are? When you know yourself as you are, then you understand the whole structure of man’s endeavour, his deceptions, his hypocrisies, his search. To do this you must be tremendously honest with yourself throughout your being.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “In its fear of not being, the mind is attached to name, to furniture, to value; and it will drop these in order to be at a higher level, the higher being the more gratifying, the more permanent. The fear of uncertainty, of not being, makes for attachment, for possession. When the possession is unsatisfactory or painful, we renounce it for a more pleasurable attachment. The ultimate gratifying possession is the word God, or its substitute, the State.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quote: “To understand the whole operation of one’s own mind requires a great deal of insight, a great deal of inquiry without condemnation.”
