Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

Commentaries On Living Series II | Chapter 45 'Help'

This preoccupation with the body prevents adaptablity to the present, the gaining of vitality and movement, however limited. The self, with its preoccupations, brings about its own pains and problems, which affect the body; and concern over bodily ills only further hinders the body. This does not mean that health should be neglected; but preoccupation with health, like preoccupation with truth with ideas, only entrenches the mind in its own pettiness. There is a vast difference between a preoccupied mind and an active mind. An active mind is silent, aware, choiceless.
