The whole spectrum of violence

October 19, 2013 Comments Off on The whole spectrum of violence

There are so many different kinds of violence. Shall we go into each kind  of violence or shall we take the whole structure of violence? Can we look  at the whole spectrum of violence, not just at one part of it?…The source  of violence is the “me”, the ego, the self, which expresses itself in so  many ways—in division, in trying to become or be somebody—which divides  itself as the “me” and the “not me”, as the unconscious and the conscious;  the “me” that identifies with the family or not with the family, with the  community or not with the community and so on. It is like a stone dropped  in a lake; the waves spread and spread, at the centre is the “me”. As long  as the “me” survives in any form, very subtly or grossly, there must be  violence.           – Krishnamurti, Beyond Violence,  p 74
