When you start very near

October 3, 2013 Comments Off on When you start very near

We generally start with the farthest—the supreme principle, the greatest  ideal, and get lost in some hazy dream of imaginative thought. But when you  start very near, with the nearest, which is you, then the whole world is  open, for you are the world, and the world beyond you is only nature.  Nature is not imaginary: it is actual; and what is happening to you now is  actual. From the actual you must begin—with what is happening now—and the  now is timeless. – Krishnamurti, Letters to the Schools vol I, p 58
