Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

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

In this world security means the piling up of wealth, possessions. I am not advocating poverty. I want you to understand, not to jump to the opposite. All opposites are born of illusion, and you are easily caught up in the illusion of the opposites. You nod your heads in pleasant agreement, but if you really think, you will begin to weep.
