Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

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

Your conception of progress is a continual movement from one object of your craving to another. When you have a craving for the possession of a material object, you strive for it until you possess it; but the moment you have obtained it, it has lost its attraction, its significance. So your craving urges you to seek affection, popularity, fame, power and you go after these and get them. But again you are disillusioned; and then you seek God, truth or life, but ever promted by craving, you have merely changed the object of your craving, and you call that progress. In this there can be no understanding. Understanding comes when there is cessation of all craving which creates conflict.
