Krishnamurti , Friedrich Nietzsche, truth, the world, and unknowing the paradigm

“We must only be concerned with wiping away...”

J. Krishnamurti

 

 

In the end, it is not what we accept inside ourselves that matters, but what we eschew; in order to purge the taint from within, we must simply learn to ‘unknow’ ourselves and everything at every moment. We must rise out of context, out of the current paradigm, out of any idea we harbor of life, the world, or ourselves, for, as we shall see as this chapter unfolds, emancipation happens to us not from gain, but ...from loss.

Friedrich Nietzsche declared: “The Will to Truth, which is to tempt us to many a hazardous enterprise, the famous, Truthfulness of which all philosophers have hitherto spoken with respect, what questions has this Will to Truth not laid before us! What strange, perplexing, questionable questions! It is already a long story; yet it seems as if it were hardly commenced. Is it any wonder if we at last grow distrustful, lose patience, and turn impatiently away? ...[Now] we are learning to forget and not know...we have got disgusted with this bad-taste, this will-to-truth, to ‘truth at all costs’, this youthful madness in the love of truth; we are now too experienced for that...”

The simple fact is that we cannot be tangled in the ubiquitous web of delusions which the mind is akin to, and also be free. Hence the need is not to set about trying to understand our confines- because ‘understanding’ is our confines; we must not strive to know ourselves through the methods and jargon given to us, we must instead release those methods and all of their previous findings. We must extract ourselves from the lie of context.
