Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

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

The purpose of my talks is to show you the manner of realizing a creative life. You must first recognize the hindrances that prevent the release of this ecstatic life. At present the pattern is more alive, the image, the theory, more alluring to you than your own creative, independent thinking and feeling, because you have made of that to which you conform, a living image. Hence, through conformity to that image and its pattern, the goal or the idea of the Master becomes more important than your own living, your own intrinsic evaluation of life. The idea of a teacher and the way to salvation form the mould in which your thoughts and emotions run, and you are seeking through that mould to conquer the chaos of your daily living. Thereby you are but destroying the native instinct which is true intelligence.
