And here I cannot rely on my knowledge because knowledge says, ‘I do not know’. Knowledge says, ‘that is the individual way of life’. So there is no dependence on knowledge, on experience or on what people say. Therefore I discard all that, completely. And now what am I to do, how am I going to find out what is truth? How do I now look on this fragmentation? You understand my question? I do not know, but there must be a right answer. What has happened to my mind now? Let me put the question differently.
When there is no duality then there is the answer. Please do not answer me, look at it. You are then living in a different dimension. Therefore to find out anything fundamental, like the answer to this issue, is not to be afraid, not to ask, not to say ‘Please tell me what is the answer’, not to be frightened, whatever it is. Now can you do it? If you cannot, you must lead the dualistic life, a contradictory, painful, sorrowing life. You see unfortunately we do not like to be put into a corner like this.
And yet I go on. I want to find out why. I live a life of fragmentation, in bits and pieces and I cannot ask anybody for an answer. I want to find out. What am I to do? Questioner: You have to meditate. KRISHNAMURTI: Wait, sir, we are doing that now, we are doing that. We are meditating now, but you refuse to—I do not use that word. Questioner: We must go in for self-examination. There is lack of harmony in ourselves. KRISHNAMURTI: No, madam, we have examined ourselves. That ‘lack of harmony in ourselves’ is not an answer.
