Do you mind?

J. Krishnamurti was a great Indian spiritual teacher who traveled the world giving lectures that were well attended by people seeking some deeper understanding.  Krishnamurti refused to give any pat answers, and his basic message was that you have to discover the truth by looking inside yourself. Many people had trouble understanding him, but they could sense that he grasped something powerful.  At one of his last lectures he surprised his audience by asking "Do you want to know my secret?"

Everyone became silent and sharply attentive.  Many in the audience had been coming to his lectures for over two decades and still failed to grasp the essence of his message.  Finally, after all these years, the master was going to distill it into something simple.  "This is my secret," he said. "I don’t mind what happens."


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.

    I read freedom from the known in the early 1990’s at around 22 years of age. When I am 90 years old – that will still be the most important book I have ever read.
