You are in contradiction with yourself – Jiddu Krishnamurti

A mind that is caught up in knowledge as a means to freedom does not come to that freedom.

For the stillness of the mind, its complete quiet, an extraordinary discipline is required;… the mind then has a religious quality of unity; from that there can be action which is not contradictory.

Seeing this vast fragmentation both inwardly and outwardly, the only issue is that a human being must radically, profoundly, bring about in himself a revolution.

The word ‘individuality’ means ‘indivisible,’ not fragmented. Individuality means a totality, the whole, and the word ‘whole’ means healthy, holy. But you are not an individual, you are not sane, because you are broken up, fragmented yourself; you are in contradiction with yourself, separated, therefore you are not an individual at all.
– Jiddu Krishnamurti
