Krishnamurti suggests that "true.
I do not want to belong to any organization of a spiritual kind I do not want followers I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free. I desire to free him from all cages, from all fears, and not to found religions, new sects, nor to establish new theories and new philosophies I do not care if you believe that I am the World—Teacher or not I do not want you to agree with me, I do not want you to follow me, I want you to understand what I am saying Organizations cannot make you free.
No man from outside can make you free; nor can organized worship My only concern is to set men absolutely, unconditionally free. Perhaps I should not say "his own" philosophy, as he usually referred to himself as "the speaker" when giving his talks, and occasionally alluded to an indefinable source of inspiration "within but beyond" his own mind, sometimes calling it "the Silence beyond silence".
Collections of Krishnamurti's talks have been translated into almost every living language, and they remain popular with students of philosophy and comparative religion today.
Freedom from the Known is, in a sense, "the best of books", in that every page points, in one way or another, to the possibility of a completely different way of living, leading to what Krishnamurti sometimes referred to as "a life without pleasure or pain, but of almost constant joy". This is foreshadowed toward the end of the first talk, as follows: "Freedom is entirely different from revolt.
There is no such thing as doing right or wrong when there is freedom. You are free and from that centre you act. And hence there is no fear, and a mind that has no fear is capable of great love. And when there is love it can do what it will. What we are now going to do, therefore, is to learn about ourselves, not according to me or to some analyst or philosopher—because if we learn about ourselves according to someone else, we learn about them, not ourselves—we are going to learn what we actually are.
There are certainly many statements in it which offend my understanding of logic, and many others which seem to me to be internally inconsistent. There are also some words in it which, though used fairly consistently within the context of the book itself, do not seem to mean quite what a dictionary would suggest they ought to mean.
All life is energy. If that energy is allowed to flow without any contradictions, without any friction, without any conflict, then that energy is boundless, endless. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind.
When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.
The result has become more important than the action. Love is not a reaction.
If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.
It is an endless river. That is why governments and religious organizations seek to control education. What they can teach you is what they think you are or what they think you should be.
We think that through experiences we can escape from ourselves, but these experiences are conditioned by what we are. Do not merely put on a mask of my ideas, for it will be an illusion and you will thereby deceive yourself. Mediocrity takes a great deal of energy.
But to be ourselves is very easy. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being.
When the distraction is completely understood, then that particular distraction is gone. When another comes, pursue it also. To abandon all that is to be alone, and the mind that is alone is not only innocent but young — not in time or age, but young, innocent, alive at whatever age — and only such a mind can see that which is truth and that which is not measurable by words. You are the world.
Knowledge is always within the shadow of ignorance. Meditation is freedom from thought and a movement in the ecstasy of truth. Meditation is explosion of intelligence. Because right path contains difficulties. In self-knowledge is the whole universe; it embraces all the struggles of humanity.
To be alone does not mean to be lonely. It means the mind is not influenced and contaminated by society. He wants an authority whom he hopes will bring about order in himself. But can authority ever bring about inward order?
