"implicity comes into being when there is freedom from the desire to achieve - 27 August 1949 • One who is sincere can never be simple because he who is trying to be sincere always has the desire to pattern or approximate himself to an idea. • Self-knowledgecanbediscoveredmorefully,deeply,widely,onlywhenthereis passive awareness, which is not the exertion of will. • In the search for self-knowledge we get caught in self-consciousness. Being caught we make the thing in which one is caught the most important thing. • To go beyond self-consciousness there must be freedom from the desire to achieve a result, because the achievement of a result is what the mind wants. • Q: Would you please explain what you mean by dying daily? • Q: How does a truth when repeated become a lie? What really is a lie? • Q: I think I can help, but whatever I say or do to another is interpreted as interference and as domineering. Why does this happen to me? • Q: What is aloneness? Is it a mystical state?"
Jiddu Krishnamurti (/?d??du?kr??n??m??rti/; 12 May 1895 – 17 February 1986) was an Indian philosopher, speaker and writer. In his early life he was groomed to be the new World Teacher but later rejected this mantle and withdrew from the Theosophy organization behind it. His interests included psychological revolution, the nature of mind, meditation, inquiry, human relationships, and bringing about radical change in society. He stressed the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being and emphasised that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social.
