Coming Upon Reality

“What has meaning is the coming upon Reality and from there, living in society, living in this world, then there is beauty & love–otherwise, there is nothing.” Jiddu Krishnamurti

To me, this is what it feels like after meditating on a challenge. It feels like something substantial has happened. When he says “coming upon reality,” he talks about how we are coming upon beauty, joy. It can’t be forced, like Desire. Thought is not involved. Thought takes joy and turns it into pleasure. We come upon joy. When we meditate, we can then live in society from this place. Just a little bit easier. Less attachment. Less sensitive to our issue. We take offense less. We are softer, kinder. There is something, not nothing.


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.
