Truth Is A Pathless Land.

Costa Rica, sunset, Poas,

"Truth is a pathless land. Man cannot come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest, or ritual, nor through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation, and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection. Man has built in himself images as a sense of security- religious, political, personal. These manifest as symbols, ideas, beliefs. The burden of these dominates man's thinking, relationships, and daily life. These are the causes of our problems, for they divide man from man in every relationship...The uniqueness of the individual does not lie in the superficial but in the total freedom from the content of consciousness." J. Krishnamurti 'Total Freedom'
