Forget the name

Posted by Holger:

Thank you Sam for the inspiration!

“We are not open to love, and other finer processes that are taking place within us, because we are all too enclosed by our own ambitions, by our own achievements, by our own desires. Surely it is good to retreat from all that, is it not?

Stop being a member of some society.
Stop being a Brahmin, a Hindu, a Christian, a Mussulman.
Stop your worship, rituals,

take a complete retreat from all those and see what happens. In a retreat, do not plunge into something else, do not take some book and be absorbed in new knowledge and new acquisition.

Have a complete break with the past and see what happens.

Sirs, do it, and you will see delight.
You will see vast expanses of love,
understanding and freedom.

When your heart is open,
then reality can come.

Then the whisperings of your own prejudices,
your own noises, are not heard.

That is why it is good to take a retreat,
to go away and to stop the routine – not only
the routine of out ward existence
but the routine which the mind establishes
for its own safety and convenience.⁠⁠⁠⁠”

J. Krishnamurti⁠
Madras 1st Public Talk 5th January 1952
