I’d ask you out for lunch but, dear reader, we have a virtual relationship only. So, instead, here’s an invitation to a pattern break for you (or, as the cliche goes, some food for thought):
“You must find your basic question. My basic question was: ‘Is there anything behind the abstractions the holy men are throwing at me? Is there really anything like enlightenment or self-realization?’ I didn’t want it. I just had this question. So naturally I had to experiment. I tried so many things, this, that and the other. For a while. Then you find out one day that there is nothing to find out at all!… The understanding that there is nothing to understand is all there is.” (U. G. Krishnamurti, in “Mind is a Myth”)
