Face the events as they come

I am wondering how many of you think about life, not your pity, daily problems but about LIFE, in general. Why are you here? Why do you have this experience of being alive? Why you? 

You live, going around, thinking, laughing, crying... but sometimes you have to stop and look why all that? What exactly did you just lived, in its totality. Because that may give you sense of direction.

Maybe not.

Do you know who is Jiddu Krishnamurti?

Of course you don't know him, you prefer to know singers, actors, athletes. You follow sports, soccer, basketball.. whatever, you know all singers and words of songs, movie and soap operas actors... and you cannot miss daily news at 11. You know a lot but you miss to know Krishnamurti.

Just briefly, he was a great spiritual teacher, a saint. His life story is quite fascinating. As a kid, he was roaming barefoot on the streets of Calcutta when he was discovered by Annie Besant, the one of the leader of Theosophical Society. 

At age of 12, she moved him to London, England where he was groomed to be the new World Teacher. Ten years later, he rejected this title and withdrew from the Theosophy organization behind it. 

He lived his entire life smiling and giving lectures...

During the one of such lectures, Krishnamurti asked the audience if they wanted to know his secret. The lecture hall went silent, and everyone leaned forward... "You see," he said, "I don’t give a shit." (I’m giving a little spin here, this was not his vocabulary.) He said “You see, I don’t mind what happens.

That's it, my dear friends, the real secret of happy life. Don't give a shit about anything or anyone, accept everything that happens with indifference.

You are living in the world of lies... false beliefs, false preconceptions, false knowledge, and you're living with a false personality based only on imagination.
You know what?
Fuck beauty contests.
Life is one fucking beauty contest after another.
You know, school, then college, then work?
Fuck that.
And fuck the Air Force Academy. 

If I wanna fly,
I'll find a way to fly.

You give a shit and that's why you are irritated, unhappy, stressed and depressed. You create, project, maintain your own truth in this sea of lies.

Have you seen them? 

Articles, books and internet pages about how to get rich, how to change your habits, how to change yourself from a looser (as you are now) and become a winner (something in near or no so near future). Those articles and books are designed to give you a bad feeling about yourself. Nothing else!

Take this simple fact about life given to you by a great saint Krishnamurti. Don't complicate these simple words. 

You are pushed to believe that you have to succeed in whatever you do following ridiculous ideals which you will never attain. You get lies in the name of truth displaying enormous ignorance in the name of knowledge.

You are convinced that things come from the outside of yourself and that somehow you must change them. So you are always one step behind, watching the events as they recede. Turn around, look at them as they come.
