Total Freedom

Some Krishnamurti insights
Reflective of all the questions and challenges I see friends around me profoundly experiencing right now....including me.

We, who are facing the beautiful beastly creature that is truthful transformation, are completely in-tune with all things celestial at this time on the planet.
Know that you are in the right place.  Exactly where you should be.

From TOTAL FREEDOM - The Essential Krishnamurti
(thanks to dear Jesse for suggesting this to me)

To Be A True Human Being:  
What we call happiness or ecstasy is, to me, creative thinking. 
And creative thinking is the infinite movement of thought, emotion, and action.
That is, when thought, which is emotion, which is action itself, is unimpending in its movement, is not compelled or influenced or bound by and idea, and does not proceed from the background of tradition or habit, then that movement is creative.

Do you want to escape from suffering, or to be free from it? 
If you merely want to escape, then a pill, a belief, an explanation, an amusement, may "help", with the inevitable consequences of dependence, fear, and so on. 
But if you wish to be free from sorrow, you must stop running away and be aware of it without judgment, without choice; you must observe it, learn about it, know all the intimate intricacies of it.
Then you will not be frightened of it, and there will no longer be the prison of self-pity.

Love Can only come into being when there is total self-abandonment.
Love is something this is new, fresh, alive. It has no yesterday and no tomorrow.
It is beyond the turmoil of thought. It is only the innocent mind which knows what love is, and the innocent mind can live in the world, which is not innocent. 
To find this extraordinary thing which man has sought endlessly through sacrifice, through worship, through relationship, through sex, through every form of pleasure and pain, is only possible when thought comes to understand itself and comes naturally to an end. 
Then love has no opposite, then love has no conflict.
But you dont know how to come to this extraordinary fount, so what do you do?
If you dont know what to do, you do absolutely nothing, dont you? Absolutely nothing. 
Then inwardly you are completely silent.  Do you understand what that means?
It means that you are not seeking, not wanting, not pursuing; there is no center at all.  
Then there is love.
