Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

Ojai, California | 4th Public Talk 1945

Confusion and misery cannot be banished by the forgetful process of time, by the comforting idea of evolution which only engenders slothfulness, smug acceptance and the continuous drift towards catastrophe; we must not let the course of our lives be directed by others, for others, or for the sake of the future. We are responsible for our life, not another; we are responsible for our conduct, not another; not another can transform us. Each one must discover and experience reality and in that alone is there joy, serenity and highest wisdom.
