The activity of belief is confusing and destructive; it may at first seem
orderly and constructive, but in its wake there is conflict and misery.
Every kind of belief, religious or political, prevents the understanding
of relationship, and there can be no action without this understanding.
Truth is a pathless land.
Man cannot come to it through any organization,
through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual,
not through any philosophic knowledge or psychological technique.
Freedom is not a reaction; freedom is not a choice.
It is man's pretense that because he has choice he is free.
Freedom is pure observation without direction,
without fear of punishment and reward.
I would say in awareness there is no choice, just to be aware.
The moment when choice enters into awareness there is no awareness.
What is important is not what is the goal of life
but to understand the confusion in which one is,
the misery, the fears, and all the other things.
As long as you have concepts,
you never see what is true.
- Jissu Krishnamurti
