Quote of the Day

by Jiddu Krishnamurti

You are protecting something which you do not know. If you know what you are protecting, that may not need any protection. So it is a foolish action that you are doing. Therefore, you will neither protect nor destroy; and you are only left with the wall and not with the idea of protection. The wall was created out of things made by the mind; therefore, the mind is the wall. The wall is made out of the mind's tricks and valuations. As the mind is the creator of the values, the values are the mind.
