Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

Early Writings, Volume VII | Talks at Adyar, India 1932-33

To theorizing there is no end. Anyone can invent theories. Many books are filled with the theories about the spiritual life and about truth. I have not studied any philosophy, either yours or another; all philosophies are theories, which may be true or false. I was never interested, nor am I interested now, in any theory, whether of Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity or Theosophy. Theories are patterns to which the human mind conforms, and where there is conformity there is no intelligence.Theories are valueless to a living man, though they may be excellent for a dead man. To a man who is alive, thinking, pulsating, suffering, your books and theories of man's future destiny, of his life after death, are utterly valueless.
