Jiddu Krishnamurti – Words of Wisdom

A mind that can meet a challenge with total energy is not creating a problem. It is only a mind that is responding to a challenge with a background, with its conditioning which is always inadequate that creates a problem.

We cannot maintain total awareness all the time. How can we? To be aware from moment to moment is enough. If one is totally aware for a minute or two, and the relax, and in that relaxation spontaneously observes the operations of one’s own mind, one will discover much more in that spontaneity than in the effort to watch continuously.

It may last one second – you are completely aware one second, and the next second you may be attentive…. Do not say inattention must become attention – thereby you are introducing conflict, and in that conflict awareness and attention completely end.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
