Quote of the Day

by Jiddu Krishnamurti

Questioner: I am trying to solve my problem. I am seeking God. I want love. I want security.

Krishnamurti: Are we not all seeking to transcend conflict and sorrow? Conflict and sorrow come to us in different ways but the cause common to us all is self-expansion. The cause of conflict and sorrow is craving, the self. Through understanding and so dissolving the cause our psychological problems will come to an end.

Questioner: Will the solution of the central problem end for me all problems?

Krishnamurti: Only if you dissolve the cause of all problems, the self; till then each day brings new strife and pain.
