Show It to Me | April 3, 2015

 You are telling me thought is limited. Show it to me! Not by talking of memory, experience, or knowledge; I understand that, but I don’t capture the feeling that it is limited, because I see the beauty of the earth, I see the beauty of a building, of a person, of nature. I see all that, but when you say thought is limited, I don’t feel it. It is just a lot of words which you have said to me. Intellectually I understand. But I have no feeling for it. There is no perfume in it.

– Jiddu Krishnamurti, “Show It to Me”
