“The speaker is not important at all; what is important is for you to find out these things for yourself, so that you are free and not second-hand human beings. You must look to find out, to find out whether or not it is possible for the mind to be completely and totally free of this violence, pride and arrogance, and so come upon a different quality altogether.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti; philosopher, public speaker and writer.
Human society, because of fear and confusion and the overall ignorance of the intellectual and limited ego, has created a myriad of institutions and philosophies to a false sense of freedom and security–i.e., religions and the blasphemous divine authority given to its mediocre men, governments with no real human values and equality for all, business enterprises which only seek to grow richer and more powerful sacrificing the health and suffering of the poor bastards who buy their products, the military which promotes greed of power and vast death of human beings dressed in elegant suits of patriotic pride and noble pursuits of human growth, and so on and so forth.
And through all this ordeal there is the mind of the ordinary, everyday man, which not only sees freedom and security in all this nonsense but also finds a false sense of human individual and collective growth; however, this is the grand crystal illusion of society which prevents all freedom and peace from ever growing, and, most importantly, which veils the truth, distances the truth and distorts facts. Freedom and love, all peace and individuality of expression is found within you, literally within you, and the illusion is that people follow these institutions like their masters and expect to find all harmony in the world by looking for it on the outside. The world, the universe, the whole cosmos, was created from the inside of the entity essence of THE ALL, nothing was ever created from without. The plants are born from the seed within the earth, not from without. So, why would anybody that believes himself intelligent and rational look for peace and freedom, for love and security outside of himself…??
See, the core problem here is not that people look for these things on the outside, but it is that they truly believe this is the solution to all the problems in their lives; so, people look for real love in relationships with somebody else, people look for guidance in politicians which offer a good speech and a good personality, people look for their own value and identity in what they do, people follow the rich like they are full of wisdom and as role models to a better persona, etc.
As human beings we must understand that which is intelligent and rational for our own unique development, that to follow others and fall in their nice traps, it does not matter how nice they are and how good-intentioned they may seem to you, creates a distance between your mind and your heart, or between your intellect and your strong spirit of intuition. This is conducive to wreaking chaos and all distress in your mind, in your views of yourself and your life, because you have been created from the center of your being, from your heart, the very seed of your existent organism, from that essence which is within the very core of your cellular make-up; so, to believe you will find all you need outside of yourself by following others and expecting others to guide you is literally madness, which is, obviously, why the world is what you see today.
Let intuition guide you and strengthen you by eliminating the fear and confusion of your mind, but first make sure you have quieted your thoughts by not listening to others and so reacting to what they say and think; so, make sure you are well-disciplined in this, because a mind that is rogue and volatile covers the whisper of all intuition.
