Relationship as a means of escape

September 17, 2013 Comments Off on Relationship as a means of escape

Relationship has true significance only when it is a process of  self-revelation, when it is revealing oneself in the very action of  relationship. But most of us do not want to be revealed in relationship. On  the contrary, we use relationship as a means of covering up our own  insufficiency, our own troubles, our own uncertainty. So relationship  becomes mere movement, mere activity. I do not know if you have noticed  that relationship is very painful, and that as long as it is not a  revealing process, in which you are discovering yourself, relationship is  merely a means of escape from yourself.  – Krishnamurti, The Collected  Works vol V p 230
