Member Statement

Krishnamurti's great insight as to how one thinks literally creates one's world, and that seeing this without manipulation or resistance, allows thought to take its proper place in one's life. The observer is the observed; no separation, no drama and no more demand. No requirement for anything to be other than what it is. Then "see what happens."
