In this quote, Krishnamurti discusses attention and how the use of meditation can be important to help to understand the world around us, developing a deeper sense of connection with ourselves and others.
“When you listen attentively, in that attention there is no ‘you’ attending. You are listening. Not that you are listening, there is only the act of listening.
“So what does death mean? The ending of things we have remembered, which we have now, and with the hope of something in the future. A great confusion, turmoil, sorrow. This is our life. And death comes, says, it will end. All this will end. So is it possible —please listen if you are interested—is it possible, take for example one thing, attachment.
