Freedom From What Is

August 24th ~ Being virtuous comes through the understanding of what is, whereas becoming virtuous is postponement, the covering up of what is with what you would like to be.  Therefore, in becoming virtuous you are avoiding action directly upon what is.  This process of avoiding what is through the cultivation of the ideal is considered virtuous; but if you look at it closely and directly you will see that it is nothing of the kind.  It is merely a postponement of coming face to face with what is.  Virtue is not the becoming of what is not; virtue is the understanding of what is and therefore the freedom from what is.  Virtue is essential in a society that is rapidly disintegrating. 

November 14th, 2019 ~ Can it be said better than this?  Or any differently?  I think not.


As in most posts on, italicization of words refers to the words of either Jiddu Krishnamurti or Albert Low.  The website writer’s words are in regular text.
