Images separate people

October 7, 2013 Comments Off on Images separate people

Why do we have images about ourselves? Those images separate people. If you  have an image of yourself as Swiss or British or French and so on, that  image not only distorts your observation of humanity, but it also separates  you from others. And wherever there is separation, division, there must be  conflict—as there is conflict going on all over the world, the Arab against  the Israeli, the Muslim against the Hindu, one Christian church against  another. National division and economic division all result from images,  concepts, ideas, and the brain clings to these images. Why?  –  Krishnamurti, The Network of Thought, pp 40-41
