“We will see how very important it is to bring about, in the human mind, the radical revolution. The crisis is a crisis in consciousness. A crisis that cannot, anymore, accept the old norms, the old patterns, the ancient traditions. And, considering what the world is now, with all the misery, conflict, destructive brutality, aggression, and so on… Man is still as he was. Is still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive. And, he’s built a society along these lines.
What we are trying in all these discussions and talks here is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind. Not accept things as they are… but to understand it, to go into it, to examine it, give your heart and your mind with every thing that you have to find out. A way of living differently.
But, that depends on you and not somebody else. Because in this there is no teacher, no pupil, there’s no leader, there’s no guru, there’s no master, no savior. You yourself are the teacher, and the pupil, you’re the master, you’re the guru, you are the leader, you are everything!
And to understand is to transform what is.”
– Jiddu Krishnamurti (outtake from Zeitgeist Addendum)
