“Man’s destiny is self-made, not imposed upon him arbitrarily from without; his own powers, blinded by ignorance, spin and twist the cord that fetters him, as his own powers, directed by knowledge, liberate his limbs from the self-imposed shackles, and set him free from bondage.”
– Annie Besant ’Riddle of Life’
“THERE IS A BLATANT DENIAL OF THE SPIRITUAL ESSENCE OF MAN. THERE IS A BELIEF IN RELIGIONS AND A “GOD” IN HEAVEN BUT THERE IS NO CONFIDENCE IN THE POWER OF MAN HIMSELF.”
– Miss Allgood The orator
“Dependence on things, on people, or on ideas breeds fear; dependence arises from ignorance, from the lack of self-knowledge, from inward poverty; fear causes uncertainty of mind-heart, preventing communication and understanding. Through self-awareness we begin to discover and so comprehend the cause of fear, not only the superficial but the deep casual and accumulative fears.”
– J krishnamurti
Real trust is not what it is thought to be. Trust is not in people, places or things. Trust is in and of the self. This self is really the inward unseen self that is you. This trust is really self assurance. Trust is the self. Trust therefore does not exist outside of the self. One cannot look to another for validation or assurance. That is dependency which is what strengthens fear. If one was confident in the self one would see that one is strong and that which he puts his trust in is weak. I tell you… if all men rested their assurance in the inward self all needs in all relationships would be met. There would be no fear and no dependencies. Then perhaps true love would be discovered.
“THE BELIEF THAT ALL MEN HOLD IS THAT THEY CANNOT STAND ON THEIR OWN FEET. THEY BELIEVE THEY NEED THE SUPPORT OF THE EXTERNAL WORLD. THEY THINK THAT IF THE WORLD DOES NOT PROVIDE THEIR BODILY MATERIAL NEEDS THEY WILL PERISH. THIS IS THE REAL REASON WHY MEN DO NOT DEVELOP THE SPIRITUAL SELF. MEN ARE LAZY AND SECRETLY WANT TO DEPEND ON THE WORLD. THIS DEPENDENCY IS THE CAUSE OF FEAR AND LACK OF SELF CONFIDENCE. MEN WANT A WORLD THAT HOLDS THEM UP IN A FALSE GLORY SO THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE TO WORK ON THE INNER CHARACTER THAT IS THE REAL MAN.”
– MISS ALLGOOD THE ORATOR
There is an arrogance within the hearts of men. There is a belief that causes men to behold themselves in a false light. This false light is really a false perception that they are above others. No I do not mean as in race or class. (I’ll get into that later)
I speak of virtue. We think that we are good when we are really not. We think we are benevolent. We think we are compassionate. We think we are self less. This is the reason why man looks down on others because he thinks that he is virtuous. This is false because one cannot be virtuous if he looks down on others. The truth is that all men are equals. We all need each other. If a man is arrogant he perceives that he has no need of anyone or anything because arrogance causes men to be foolish, conceited and selfish.
Can you see this is what dwells in the hearts of men? Can you see that you look down on others because you exalt yourself?”
– Miss Allgood
"This is no magnificent deed, because I do not want followers, and I mean this. The moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. I am not concerned whether you pay attention to what I say or not. I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free. I desire to free him from all cages, from all fears, and not to found religions, new sects, nor to establish new theories and new philosophies."
- J. Krishnamurti
"From the dust of the hollow Earth came the hollow man and to dust he shall return."
“I DO NOT SAY THAT NATURE IS NOT DUAL OR A TWO FOLD NATURE. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS IN THE WORLD THERE IS BOTH MAN AND BEAST. NOW CLEARLY MAN IDENTIFIES WITH THE BEAST IN THE WILD. HOWEVER HE DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE BESTIALITY OF HIS OWN NATURE.
HUMAN BEINGS HAVE WITHIN THEM THE NATURAL INCLINATIONS OF A BEAST AND A MAN.
YOU DO NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BEAST AND A HUMAN BEING. WHY WOULD YOU COMPARE YOURSELF TO A HOMOSEXUAL BIRD? IS THIS BECAUSE YOU AND THE BIRD SHARE THE SAME NATURE?
WHAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND IS WHAT THE BIRD, LION OR FISH DOES IS NOT COMPARABLE TO THAT OF A HUMAN BEING BECAUSE THEY CANNOT THINK BEYOND THE CAPACITY OF THEIR BEASTLY NATURE. THE NATURE OF AN ANIMAL IS SENSUAL AND OF SURVIVAL. AN ANIMAL KILLS FOR TERRITORY OR FOOD. AN ANIMAL HAS SEX JUST TO PRESERVE THE SPECIES. AN ANIMAL CAN LIVE THE WAY IT DOES BECAUSE IT UPHOLDS THE ORDER OF THE PHYLUM.
WHY DOES A HUMAN BEING HAVE SEX? WHY DO MEN KILL? WHY DO MEN FIGHT OTHER MEN?
SHOULD YOU THINK ON THESE QUESTIONS YOU WOULD FIND THAT THE BEASTLY NATURE OF MEN DIFFERS FROM THAT OF AN ANIMAL.
YET YOU COMPARE THE HOMOSEXUAL NATURE OF MAN TO THAT OF AN ANIMAL WHO LIVES ACCORDING TO HIS INSTINCT TO SURVIVE.
THE HUMAN BEING HAS THE CAPACITY TO THINK FOR HIMSELF BEYOND BASIC SURVIVAL IN THE WORLD. WE AS MEN HAVE THE POWER TO LOVE, CREATE AND EXPRESS OURSELVES BEYOND THE ANIMALS OF THE LOWER KINGDOM. WE DO NOT USE OUR MINDS TO THE HIGHEST CAPACITY. HUMAN BEINGS HAVE LIKENED THEMSELVES TO THE BEAST OF THE FIELD. THIS IS EVIDENCED IN OUR DISORDERLY WORLD. DO YOU KNOW THAT THE HUMAN MIND IS CAPABLE OF EVOLVING INTO A GOD?
SHOULD A HUMAN LIVE AS AN ANIMAL GRATIFYING HIS LUSTS AND PLEASURES HE HAS NOT YET EVOLVED TO MANHOOD. MAN MUST TRANSCEND HIS BEASTLY NATURE IN ORDER TO TRULY LIVE AS A MAN.
A MAN CANNOT LIVE AS AN ANIMAL OR IT IS A PERVERSION OF HIS SPIRITUAL NATURE.
YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS BECAUSE MAN BY NATURE IS THE SPIRITUAL GOVERNANCE OF THE ANIMAL AND HIMSELF BECAUSE WITHIN HIM IS BOTH NATURES.
YOU LISTEN BUT YOU DON’T HEAR. YOU LOOK BUT YOU DON’T SEE AND YOU SPEAK WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW.”
