Guest speaker: J. Krishnamurti
[NOTE: All quotations below are by J. Krishnamurti.]
“Give your heart and your mind with every thing that you have to find out a way of living differently.”
“Where there is love, do what you will it will be right action, but never bring conflict to one’s life.”
“We are talking about a revolution, not physical, but a psychological revolution in which there is no, at the depth, conformity. … Conformity exists when there is comparison. For a mind to be totally free from comparison, that is to observe your whole history which is embedded in you.”
“What’s your answer to this question that human beings have lived this way for millenia upon millenia, why haven’t they changed? . . . Why don’t you, if you’re at all serious in this matter, why don’t you ask yourself that question? Why am I, a human being who has been through all of this, why haven’t I changed?”
“To go into this question of bringing about a total revolution in what is, one must have an extraordinary sense of awareness.”
“And when observed through history, through our life, all that hope and faith have no meaning at all, because what is important is what we are, actually what we are, not what we think we are, or what we think we should be, but actually what is.”
“What we are trying in these discussions and talks here is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind. Not accept things as they are.”
“To understand is to transform what is.”

This website is where I first read about Krishnamurti and his thought. It is a bit disorganized and sluggish as of late, as it has been under renovation, I think, but it has some great stuff. The focus is Sufism and Advaita Vedanta, though other traditions, and figures, such as Krishnamurti, are also featured.

Just a few text based selections; lots of videos are there too.
Enjoy, all who seek!
