talk about searching for Truth, Peace or Freedom, not realizing the
contradiction in our words. We cannot find such things, for they
are beyond us—beyond the
ego, that is. Krishnamurti once said: " … to talk of so-and-so
‘obtaining liberation’ is a misuse of terms. That which is liberated
is always life, not the individual. Indeed, it is at the expense of the
individual that such liberation is achieved".
you ever seen a fly caught in a spider’s web? The more it struggles to
become free, the more it becomes entangled. And so it is with us in our
efforts to find Freedom. It is not that there is no Freedom, but that
our efforts—self-efforts—to find it
can never succeed; it is like trying to catch an elephant in a
butterfly-net; our approach is wrong.
people enter a spiritual path as upon a competition with others, trying
to be better, playing the ‘holier-than-thou’ game; ashrams and
monasteries are full of them. And when they finally give up in despair,
they often find themselves worse-off than before they began. There are
risks involved, dangers to beware of.
