J Krishnamurti

Why are we such tortured human beings, with tears in our eyes and false laughter on our lips? If you could walk alone among those hills or in the woods or along the long, white, bleached sands, in that solitude you would know what meditation is. The ecstasy of solitude comes when you are not frightened to be alone no longer belonging to the world or attached to anything. Then, like that dawn that came up this morning, it comes silently, and makes a golden path in the very stillness, which was at the beginning, which is now, and which will be always there.

 

If your eyes are blinded with your worries, you cannot see the beauty of the sunset.

 

This theosophical gem was written by J. Krishnamurti when he was 14 years old under the name Alcyone. This book was first published in 1910 and is still in print, published in many languages. The book includes a preface by Annie Besant and a dedication page "To those who knock"

The body of the work lays out simply, the four requirements for the spiritual path and discipleship -

1. Discrimination

2. Desirelessness

3. Good conduct

4. Love

This is a wonderful and inspiring book, a must in any collection.
