(From “The Only Revolution“)

“What is important in meditation is the quality of the mind and the

heart. It is not what you achieve, or what you say you attain, but

rather the quality of a mind that is innocent and vulnerable.

Through negation there is the positive state. Merely to gather, or to

live in, experience, denies the purity of meditation. Meditation is

not a means to an end. It is both the means and the end. The mind

can never be made innocent through experience. It is the negation

of experience that brings about that positive state of innocency

which cannot be cultivated by thought. Thought is never innocent.

Meditation is the ending of thought, not by the meditator, for the

meditator is the meditation. If there is no meditation, then you are

like a blind man in a world of great beauty, light and colour.”  Jiddu Krishnamurti
