    Default Jiddu Krishnamurti

    I love this man's quotes, so inspiring.

    "The human being realise that we are all One, basically
    Not as an idea but as a fact
    Because when you go to India you see the misery
    the confusion, the anxiety, the despair of people
    Running to their petit little gods whom they have created
    If you come to Europe, it's exactly the same thing
    You'll sense a thirst to realise, not verbally
    But in your heart, in your blood, your whole thinking
    That humans beings right through the world
    go through the same agonies that one goes through
    The loneliness, the despair, the depressions
    The extraordinary uncertainty, insecurity
    Whether they live ten thousand miles away or two thousand miles, or here
    They're all psychologically bound together
    If one realises that profoundly in your guts
    In your blood, in your heart, in your mind
    Then you're responsible"



    "You have to be a light to yourself, not the light of a professor or an analyst or a psychologist or the light of Jesus or the light of the Buddha; you have to be a light to yourself, in a world that's utterly becoming dark."


    "You must understand it, go into it, examine it, give your heart and your mind, with everything that you have, to find out a way of living differently. That depends on you, and not on someone else, because in this there is no teacher, no pupil; there is no leader; there is no guru; there is no Master, no Saviour. You yourself are the teacher and the pupil; you are the Master; you are the guru; you are the leader; you are everything. To understand is to transform what is."
    I miss those days when we played as kids. No worries about our future, no enemies. Now I close my eyes, trying to go back there with my mind. Oh how I wish I could relive those old times again.

    I think he also said "the enemy is not the other, the enemy is you."
