‘I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organised; nor should any organisation be formed to lead or coerce people along any particular path.

"By using the models of Jesus, Buddha, or Krishna we have destroyed the possibility of nature throwing up unique individuals. It would be more interesting to learn from children, than try to teach them how to behave, how to live and how to function".  --   U.G. Krishnamurti (1918-2007)

Krishnamurti: It is a little easier to talk to those who have attempted thought control - who have done some sadhana - because they experience the futility of it and can see where they are hung up.

If we try to listen, we find it extraordinarily difficult, because we are always projecting our opinions and ideas, our prejudices, our background… When they dominate, we hardly listen at all to what is being said....   Only in a state of silence, one listens… and therefore learns .   Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Violence is not merely killing another. It is violence when we use a sharp word, when we make a gesture to brush away a person, when we obey because there is fear. So violence isn’t merely organized butchery in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more subtle, much deeper.”  Jiddu Krishnamurti

To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom."

It is essential sometimes to go to retreat, to stop everything that you have been doing, to stop your beliefs and experiences completely, and look at them anew, not keep on repeating like machines whether you believe or do not believe.
