Subject and Object


“In the gap between subject and object lies the entire misery of humankind.”          

–Jiddu Krishnamurti (Indian Spiritual Teacher, 1895-1986)

The First and Last Freedom” (J. Krishnamurti)

Beginning To Meditate

Jiddu Krishnamurti3.jpg

“The soil in which the meditative mind can begin is the soil of everyday life, the strife, the pain, and the fleeting joy. It must begin there, and bring order, and from there move endlessly. But if you are concerned only with making order, then that very order will bring about its own limitation, and the mind will be its prisoner. In all this movement you must somehow begin from the other end, from the other shore, and not always be concerned with this shore or how to cross the river.

You must take a plunge into the water, not knowing how to swim. And the beauty of meditation is that you never know where you are, where you are going, what the end is.”         

–Jiddu Krishnamurti (Indian Spiritual Teacher, 1895-1986)   

Divine Love


“. . . divine love is not something belonging to God: it is God Himself.”

–Henri Louis Bergson (French Philosopher, 1859-1941)
