Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

Early Writings, Volume VII | Talks at the Ojai Camp 1932

It is by living completely in the present that you come to realization of the blessedness of truth. In the concentrated awareness of living fully, without motive, you free the mind from all entanglements and hindrances created through craving. There is entanglement as long as you have craving of any kind, even for truth itself, because craving creates distinction and so resistance, hindrance. Nor must you limit your mind by continually repeating to yourself, "I must not crave". That would be but an empty phrase, and you would remain in the narrow bondage of your longing not to crave.
