Can I be a light globally?   J. Krishnamurti Online Transcript 

Sixth Seminar Meeting at Brockwood Park

Monday, September 18, 1978

  • Q: Is it possible to be a light to oneself, not dependent on anybody?
  • Can we remain with the fact, without any deviation, without any interference of the accumulated memories of the past, to observe what is taking place without thought acting as a barrier?
  • Is it possible to be completely, totally free from all influence, from all propaganda, tradition, superstition, every form of influence, both external and inward?
  • Face the fact that dependence means pain. Look at it.
  • There must be freedom from the known. The known is the memory, the past. To be a light to oneself, the past with all its tradition must totally vanish. What has been registered on the brain must end and no present or future registration take place.

Series: How can one be a light to oneself if there is any kind of dependence?
