Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

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

My talking to you will have no value unless as an individual you begin to wake up and become aware of the bars of your own prison. Do not be concerned about the masses but, as an individual, begin to live in awareness and to discover the hindrances; and in that discovery you will become supremely intelligent. Intelligence is harmony of mind and heart, hence it is supreme, godlike; whereas the pursuit of theories but destroys it. For many years you have studied deeply and attended classes. Are you any the happier, more creative? Of what value is all your training if you are, even for a single moment, unhappy, uncreative, if you are not spontaneous, complete, intense?
