Questioning the whole edifice of ideas

July 14, 2013 Comments Off on Questioning the whole edifice of ideas

Ideas have become far more important to us than action – ideas so cleverly expressed in books by the intellectuals in every field. The more cunning, the more subtle, those ideas are, the more we worship and the books that contain them, We are those books, we are those ideas, so heavily conditioned are we by them. We are foreever discussing ideas and ideals and dialectically offering opinions. Every religion has its dogma, its formula, its own scaffold to reach the gods, and when inquiring into the begining of thought, we are questioning the importance of this whole edifice of ideas. We have separated ideas from action because ideas are always of the past and action is always the present – that is, living is always the present. – JKrishnamurti,Freedom from the Known,100
