Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

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

As a fog hides a toiling city, so you hide your conflicts, your sorrows, your struggles. in the illusion of discipleship and progress. You hope that, through discipleship and conformity to a system of conduct, you will understand the conflict, and so conquer the misery, the toil and the suffering. You are only escaping from conflict when you pursue these illusions, in which there can never be understanding. In the pursuit of achievement and progress you create the essential and the unessential, whereas understanding lies in the discovery of the true significance of every incident of life, freed from the illusion of the opposites.
