Life is playing game with death. Livings are wondering the great numbers death has already devoured. With all this chaos revolving around humanity, the precious nature of life has turned stronger than ever. The present goal of humanity is to see everyone out there safe and getting healed from the early loss of loved ones. The methods and advises to stay safe in these tough days are overflowing like the water of floods, where the safest either find place in woods or pulled back by those who care. With plenty of necessary and unnecessary advises, our mind is really burdened with the repeated occurring thoughts- “45 min exercise a day”, “consume plenty of water”, “eat green”, “don’t step out”, “cover up face and hands”, “meditate”, and so on. The formation of habit is not an easy thing. But the fear of sufferings necessarily brings us to the right habit at…

“The constant streaming in of the thoughts of others must confine and suppress your own;  and indeed in the long run paralyze the power of thought… The inclination of most scholar is a kind of fuga vacui or vacuum suction, from the poverty of their own minds,  which forcibly draws in the thoughts of others.. It is dangerous to read about a subject before we have thought about it ourselves.. When we read, another person thinks for us;  we merely repeat his mental process…so it comes about that is anyone spends almost whole day in reading, he gradually loses the capacity for thinking…experience of the world may be looked upon as a kind of text,  to which reflection and knowledge form the commentary. Where there is a great deal of reflection and intellectual knowledge,  and a very little experience, the result is like those books which have on each page two lines of text to forty lines of commentary.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti “Freedom from the known” is a hand-book meant to transform the human life by projecting the mistakes humans are committing, in various fields of social, political, religious, personal and relationships. Krishnamurti has focused on changing the perspective or thinking of an individual. We mostly live our life based on old beliefs, ideals, truth, circumstances, past experiences and common sayings. We mostly suffer because we try to find the solutions of fresh problems in old books, scriptures, thoughts, and beliefs. It is to be noted that for new problems, there is always a fresh solution. To get solutions, we need to change our perspectives by interpreting the various dimensions of a particular problem. For Krishnamurti, faith is righteous until it supports you in growing. In case, it is pulling you back, and causing a hindrance towards your spiritual goals, then there is no usage of keeping old faith. In…
