When asked by a student what his "secret" was, Krishnamurti answered simply, "I don't mind what happens."

He goes on to point us in the right direction by saying that from this perspective our suffering comes from our resistance to the present moment just as it is. When we say NO to what is we immediately create seperation and thus perpetuate suffering.

Wanting the present moment to be different than it is can be considered an insane way of life because the one undeniable thing about the present moment is that it is how it is.

Resistance to "what is" clearly creates seperation and suffering. It must be supported by the unchallenged assumption that "I" am a volitional, autonomous entity with control over.........something?

Stanley's comments that the apparent "me" is a body sensation and not a thought is certainly worthy of discussion. Let us explore through self inquiry over the next several days, how this can be so. Does it appear that body sensations are more intimate and "me-like" than thoughts which are more easily dismissed?

Thank you Stanley
