To me, then, true criticism consists in trying to find out the intrinsic worth of the thing itself, and not in attributing a quality to that thing. You attribute a quality to an environment, to an experience, only when you want to derive something from it, when you want to gain or to have power or happiness. Now this destroys true criticism. Your desire is perverted through attributing values, and therefore you cannot see clearly. Instead of trying to see the flower in its original and entire beauty, you look at it through coloured glasses, and therefore you can never see it as it is.

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

Reflect on Impermanence

If you do not reflect on death and impermanence,
There will be no way to practice Dharma purely,
Practice will remain an aspiration, one that is constantly postponed,
And you may feel regret the day that death comes, but by then it
will be too late!

- Chatral Rinpoche, Compassionate Action (Snow Lion)
-----------------------------------------------------------

We should not merely expend all our energy collecting pieces of information, but make an effort to experience their validity through insight in our daily life.

- Geshe Rabten, in Advice From a Spiritual Friend

-----------------------------------------------------------

So let us decide whether you want a shelter, a safety zone, which will no longer yield conflict, whether you want to escape from the present conflict to enter a condition in which there shall be no conflict; or whether you are unaware, unconscious of this conflict in which you exist. If you are unconscious of the conflict, that is, the battle that is taking place between that self and the environment, if you are unconscious of that battle, then why do you seek further remedies?

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

Dear Forbus,

I love to be in your company to achieve the highest goal of Humanity.

Your work is paying for those aspiring for better life to be woven after understanding ''MY DHARMA''

In this ''KALIYUG'' people have forgotten why they came to this world!!! & what is the purpose & who are they??? (It is difficult to fine WHO ARE THEY??)

Life has become highly unrealistic & hypocratic since there are lot many desires & wishes that are difficult to satisfy & accomplice.

Desires are hindrance to recognize oneself, hence Dharma.

Anant Dalal.
