Nuggets: The Truth Lies Within

In this constant battle which we call living,
we try to set a code of conduct according to the society in which we are brought up,
whether it be a communist society or a so-called free society;
we accept a standard of behavior as part of our tradition
as Hindus or Muslims or Christians whatever we happen to be.

We look to someone to tell us what is right or wrong behavior,
what is right or wrong thought,
and in following this pattern our conduct and our thinking become mechanical,
our responses automatic. [Preventing us from being truly mindful of our lives.]

~ J. Krishnamurti
