Like two parallel lines

October 3, 2013 Comments Off on Like two parallel lines

We are observing the actual relationship of man to man and woman, between  two human beings, asking why there should be so much struggle, anxiety,  pain. In the relationship of two human beings, be they married or not, do  they ever meet, psychologically? They may meet physically, in bed, but  inwardly, psychologically, are they not like two parallel lines, each  pursuing his own life, his own ambition, his own fulfilment, his own  expression? So, like two parallel lines, they never meet, and therefore  there is the battle, the struggle, the pain of having no actual  relationship. They say they are related, but that is not true, that is not  honest, because each one has an image about himself. Added to that image  each one has an image of the person he lives with. Actually we have two  images or multiple images.  – Krishnamurti, The Flame of Attention, p 71
