Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil | 3rd Public Talk 4th May, 1935

Question: I allow my imagination to wander fearlessly. Is this right?

Krishnamurti: Actually you may be afraid of many things. This imaginative flight is another escape from the problems of life. If it is an escape, it is utterly wasteful of mental energy. That energy can become creative and effective only when it has liberated itself from fears and illusions which tradition and self-protective desires have imposed upon it.
