So Don't Believe A Word I Say....

Something I learned from Jiddhu Krishnamurti (in fact I learned a lot from him) is disrespect for scripture.

No revelation, prophecy or statement of the truth is forever- but is always conditioned by its time and place of utterance- and the slipperiness of language- and once spoken or written begins to decay.

He applied this doctrine to his own teaching. Don't bother with my old books, he said (in so many words) Just listen to what I'm saying now, in this moment- then let it go.
