“Reminder of a thousand years ago-reincarnation
which essentially amounts to the same as yesterday.
Why would we call that REINCARNATION
and not the incarnation of yesterday, that is
that we were born today. But we think so
not pleasant, because we think we are exceptional
are beings, or that we have time enough to
to grow, to become something, to incarnate again.
But what then incarnates, you never have that
wondered-that is your memory. There is nothing sacred or special about it.
Once we see how much
weight has the memory and how completely unimportant it is, we never speak of reincarnation again.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti, The eagle in its flight

“Freedom cannot be given; freedom happens to you if you don’t look for it; it comes into being when you realize that you are a prisoner, when you have understood the conditioning, when you know that you are being held captive by society and traditions, by everything you have been told. Freedom is order – it is never disorder – and an individual must be totally free, both outwards and inwards; without freedom there is no clarity, no love and no truth; without freedom you cannot ignore the limitations of the mind. You have to claim your freedom with your whole being. If you claim it that way you will discover what order means. Order cannot be found in following anything … The real revolution cannot be achieved from a superficial level; it is embedded in our hearts and minds and can only be achieved if we have gained deep insight into the entire process of our daily existence in all our relationships. Only then does a possibility arise to prevent the technical knowledge used for the destruction of humans. A mind that has grasped the nature of pleasure and fear can no longer be violent and can therefore live in peace with itself and the world.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Once you have gone that far and penetrated so deeply into it, you will discover that in the unconscious, in the dark corners of the mind, there is buried a feeling of complete loneliness, of isolation, and that is the fundamental cause of fear.
But you will never ignore this if you avoid it, if you avoid it, if you do not descend into it without giving it a name.
Our mind must come face to face with the fact of complete inner loneliness and not allow itself to change anything about that fact.
That exceptional something called solitude is the deepest being of the self, the “I” with all its harassment, all its cleverness, its surrogate tricks, with its veil of words in which the mind becomes trapped.
Only when the human mind is able to rise above that ultimate loneliness does freedom – the absolute freedom of fear – appear. Only then will you independently know what is real, that immeasurable energy source that has no beginning and no end.
However, as long as the mind generates its own fears in terms of time, it is incapable of understanding what is timeless.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti
