I am not important, but I shall be
So, how is the mind to free itself from time? Time, after all, is knowledge. Time comes into being when there is the sense of achievement, something to be arrived at, something to be gained. ‘I am not important, but I shall be; in that idea, time has come into being, and with it the whole struggle of becoming. In the very idea, ‘I shall be,’ there is effort to become; and I think it is this effort to become which creates time, and which prevents a comprehension of the totality of things. You see, so long as I am thinking about myself in terms of gain and loss, I must have time. I must have time to cover the distance between now and tomorrow when I hope I shall be something, either in terms of virtue or position or knowledge. This creation of time breaks life up into segments, and that becomes the problem. – JKrishnamurti,Hamburg 1956,Talk 4
