Krishnamurti offers radically different answers to questions about our relationship with others, and why we do not act with clarity and intelligence.
* What are the consequences of personal action based on a belief?
* Why does my effort not produce the results I expect?
* Why do I react to most things in life?
"For most of us action becomes a routine, a habit, something that one does not out of love or because it has deep significance for oneself, but because one has to do it. One is driven to it by circumstances, by a wrong kind of education, by the lack of that love out of which one does something real..."
"Surely true action comes from clarity. When the mind is very clear, unconfused, not contradictory within itself, then action inevitably follows from the clarity... But it is very difficult to have undisturbed perception and to see things not as one would like to see them, but as they actually are, undistorted by one's like and dislikes. It is only out of such clarity that the fullness of action takes places." - J. Krishnamurti, New Delhi, India 1959
