Re: Hello, and a Question on an 'Enlightening' Experience
- krisnamurti said once...there is nothing to understand! maybe what he
meant was, there is nothing to understand, only experience. the moment
we seek or demand clarity on a thing, we obscure it! I love the
mythology, the first time i read it, it was absolutely familiar to me,
because the archtypes are in my psyche. it's the psyche we all share as
part of our human experience.
