So states Krishnamurti in the last teachings before his death in 1986. Rather, he continues, when we do no more than observe them with a mind unruffled by thoughts either of solution or escape, they dissolve. To gaze upon them as one might ‘a precious jewel, exquisitely handcrafted’ leads in fact to ‘total release from that which has caused pain’. In striving for resolution, however, we will only add to the complexity of any problem. If we can remove ourselves from the struggle and shed our intrusive egotism, then sorrow dies - and love is born. Meeting Life suggests that we go about this most effectively when we let go of everything we know and purport to be, and meditate - which entails no more than dropping our hurts, fears, anxiety, loneliness, despair and sorrow on the spot. ‘That is the foundation, that is the first step, and the first step,’ Krishnamurti insists, ‘is the last step.’ Just one of the questions with which this collection of talks confronts the reader is: Are you brave enough to take this vital step? Jiddu Krishnamurti was a philosopher, speaker and writer. He was concerned with psychological revolution, the nature of mind, meditation, inquiry, human relationships, and bringing about radical change in society. Moderate wear in the cover. Size: 12mo.
