=== JKrishnamurti.org – Daily Quote ===
Can the mind observe without the symbol?
Words have condemnatory or appreciative meanings. As long as my mind is caught in words, either I condemn or accept. And is it possible for the mind not to accept or deny, but observe without the word and the symbol interfering with it?
The Collected Works, Vol. XII – 6

It’s only from a position of complete total silence that we can ever hope to perceive anything of actuality.
With thought and words come prejudices, evaluations, interpretations, and misunderstandings.
The enlightened mind cannot come into being without complete and total silence.
