The most difficult thing to learn is something you think you know already

“The most difficult thing to learn is something you think you know already”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

We think that we are our thoughts, crystallised by the words of Descartes, “I think, therefore I am”.  Yet if it was not for the space in your mind, where would your thoughts live? They could not be because there would be no place for them to exist.

It’s tricky when you think that you are your thoughts, to then know yourself only as space.  This space is who you are, not the thought that lavishly takes up residence. A thought, any thought is your servant. If it does not serve you, then it has no place in your beautiful mind.

Make a little space in your mind and come to know who you are before and beyond thought.
