“As long as you are afraid of anyone or anything, there can be no happiness. There can be no happiness as long as you are afraid of your parents, your teachers, afraid of not passing examinations, afraid of not making progress, of not getting nearer to the Master, nearer to truth, or of not being approved of, patted on the back. But if you are really not afraid of anything, then you will find—when you wake up of a morning, or when you are walking alone—that suddenly a strange thing happens: uninvited, unsolicited, unlooked for, that which may be called love, truth, happiness, is suddenly there.”
~ Krishnamurti from Think on These Things
The contents of Think on These Things were originally presented in the form of talks to students, teachers and parents in India and cover everything from culture, religion, politics, education and tradition.
Krishnamurti isn’t the kinda guy who always gives you the warm and fuzzies but he *does* make you think and fires you up to break out of our conditioned sleep and rock it.
(And, he obviously had a very big brain. :)
With that, let’s begin our exploration of a handful of my favorite Krishnamurti’s gems!
