Does Life Have A Purpose? — by J. Krishnamurti

Post by Welles » Tue Jan 23, 2018 4:53 pm

I was delighted this morning to be presented with this bit of classic Krishnamurti wisdom...

"Questioner:

Why do you maintain that Life has no purpose? If Life has no purpose, the individual life, even in pure being, can have no purpose either; because individual perfection can have a meaning only when there is a purpose in creation.

KRISHNAMURTI:

Life by which I mean, that life which is truth, in which there is no division, in which all things consummate, on which all things depend, in which all things exist that life has no purpose, because it is.

For that which is, there cannot be a purpose, because it is all inclusive. In that exist both time and space, and individual existence; but individual existence, in which totality is not yet realized, has a purpose. That purpose is the realization of this totality."


This answer struck me as theosophically zen. Zennish anyone?

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
