Jiddu Krishnamurti quotes: emptiness, prejudices, clarity, religion, death, worship, and God

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas

 

                

 

“Unexpectedly, there was a flash of that unapproachable power and strength that was physically shattering. The body became frozen into immobility and one had to shut one’s eyes not to go off into a faint. It was completely shattering and everything that was didn't seem to exist. …It was something indescribably great whose height and depth are unknowable.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“...to see...with eyes that have been bathed in emptiness, that have not been hurt with knowledge- to see then is an extraordinary experience.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“So now we are going to investigate ourselves together...a journey of discovery into the most secret corners of our minds. And to take such a journey we must travel light; we cannot be burdened with opinions, prejudices, and conclusions. ...Forget all you know about yourself; forget all you have ever thought about yourself; we are going to start as if we knew nothing.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“Clarity is essential. I mean by ‘clarity’, seeing things as they are, seeing the ‘what is’, without any opinion, seeing the movement of your mind, observing it very closely, minutely, diligently, without any purpose, without any directive.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“It was an emptiness that had known no knowing...”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“...religion is not only the graven image in the temple, the letters in the mosque, or the cross in the church, not only the graven image made by the hand, but also the graven image made by the mind, the idea.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“The religious man is he who does not belong to any religion, to any nation, to any race, who is inwardly completely alone, in a state of not-knowing.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“That is, can I die to each action throughout the day, so that the mind never accumulates and is therefore never contaminated by the past, but is always new, fresh, innocent?”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“You cannot live without dying. You cannot live if you don't die psychologically every minute. This is not an intellectual paradox. To live completely, wholly, every day as if it were a new loveliness, there must be a dying to everything of yesterday, otherwise you live mechanically, and a mechanical mind can never know what love is or what freedom is. ...To die is to have a mind that is completely empty of itself, empty of all its daily longings, pleasures and agonies. Death is a renewal, a mutation, in which thought does not function at all because thought is old. When there is death there is something totally new. Freedom from the known is death, and then you are living.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“...mystery is quite another thing. …to be in communion with that, the mind, the whole of you, must be at the same level, at the same time, with the same intensity as that which is called mysterious. This is love. With this the whole mystery of the universe is open.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

“I am sorrow, pain, and fleeting pleasure; the passions and the gratifications; the bitter wrath and infinite compassion; the sin and the sinner. I am the lover and the very love itself. I am the saint, the adorer, the worshipper, and the follower. I am God.”

                Jiddu Krishnamurti
