Truth Is a State of Being

August 2nd ~ There is no path to truth, and there are not  two truths.  Truth is not of the past or of the present, it is timeless; and the man who quotes the truth of the Buddha, of Shankara, of the Christ, or who merely repeats what I am saying, will not find truth, because repetition is not truth.  Repetition is a lie.  Truth is a state of being which arises when the mind–which seeks to divide, to be exclusive, which can think only in terms of results, of achievement–has come to an end.  Only then will there be truth.  The mind that is making effort, disciplining itself in order to achieve an end, cannot know truth, because the end is its own projection, and the pursuit of that projection, however noble, is a form of self-worship.  Such a being is worshiping himself, and therefore he cannot know truth.  Truth is to be known only when we understand the whole process of the mind, that is, when there is no strife.

December 6th, 2019 ~ It has been educational to listen to Krishnamurti and read his writings.  I have learned to break sentences down to words and the meanings of those words.  He uses the word timeless.  Does he mean without time?  Time is fear.  Time is thought.  Without time is without fear, without thought.  Truth is timeless.  How many times we idolize individuals who are successful in the business world, sports or entertainment.  Such effort they make.  Have they accessed truth?  Do they understand the mind?
