Krishnamurti Quote of the Day | Sep 12, 2016

"When the mind is stagnant, drugged to sleep by beliefs, crippled by limitations, and is awakened by the movement of life, that awakening we call suffering."

Interesting here that K assimilates 'suffering' and 'awakening' ...

Indeed when things happen in life which do not fit our beliefs and expectations ... this "movement of life" ... then there is resistance to this movement, a resistance to 'what is' ... which is indeed suffering ...

Why resist 'what is' ?

When sitting quietly and thinking about your husband or wife, or a distant friend, you may be experiencing a good feeling, a warm sense of wellbeing. But what if the loving sensation comes to you with no name, no memory, no effort? Then something is revitalised, and you see life, the life as it is known, and you practice normally, it is suffering, and it is fear.
