Krishnamurti Quotes: A Particular Corner of the Vast Field of Life

 J. Krishnamurti Online

And what is yourself, the individual you? I think there is a difference between the human being and the individual. The individual is a local entity, living in a particular country, belonging to a particular culture, particular society, particular religion.

The human being is not a local entity. He is everywhere. If the individual merely acts in a particular corner of the vast field of life, then his action is totally unrelated to the whole.

So one has to bear in mind that we are talking of the whole not the part, because in the greater the lesser is, but in the lesser the greater is not.

The individual is the little conditioned, miserable, frustrated entity, satisfied with his little gods and his little traditions, whereas a human being is concerned with the total welfare, the total misery and total confusion of the world.

Freedom from the Known,13
