Our Times

In 1948 Krishnamurti wrote that:

You, the individual, are the world problem...because all the other problems are created by your unwillingness to tackle yourself first...

Our minds and hearts must be simple, creative empty, and watchful. Only then can love come into being. Love alone can bring peace to the world, and then will the world know the bliss of the real.

Krishnamurti was talking about objective unconditional love, not mawkish love, as a way of raising the conscience of the individual. Our times require such individual and collective human conscience.
