The following quotes are in our database.......
Pg-269"Does it really matter out of what glass you drink the water, so long as that water is able to quench your thirst.... I have been united with my Beloved, and my Beloved and I will wander together the face of the earth.... It is no good asking me who is the Beloved. Of what use is explanation? For you will not understand the Beloved until you are able to see Him in every animal, every blade of grass, in every person that is suffering, in every individual. [Krishnamurti]
Pg-281"If you would seek the Truth you must go out, far away from the limitations of the human mind and heart and there discover it, and that Truth is within yourself. Is it not much simpler to make Life itself the goal-Life itself the guide, the Master and the God-than to have mediators, gurus, who must inevitably step down the Truth, and hence betray it? [Krishnamurti]
Pg-281"Do not quote me afterwards as an authority. I refuse to be your crutch. I am not going to be brought into a cage for your worship. When you bring the fresh air of the mountain and hold it in a small room, the freshness of that air disappears and there is stagnation.[Krishnamurti]
Pg-282"Good is that of which you are not afraid; evil is that of which you are afraid. So, if you destroy fear, you are spiritually fulfilled. . . . When you are in love with life, and you place that love before all things, and judge by that love, and not by your fear, then this stagnation which you call morality will disappear.... I am not concerned with societies, with religions, with dogmas, but I am concerned with life because I am Life. [Krishnamurti]
Pg-296"No man from outside can make you free; nor can organized worship, nor the immolation of yourselves for a cause, make you free; nor can forming yourselves into an organization, nor throwing yourselves into work, make you free. You use a typewriter to write letters, but you do not put it on an altar and worship it. But that is what you are doing when organizations become your chief concern. "How many members are there in it?" That is the first question I am asked by all newspaper reporters. "How many followers have you? By their number we shall judge whether what you say is true or false." I do not know how many there are. I am not concerned with that. If there were even one man who had been set free, that were enough.[Krishnamurti]
