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.  In fact, Descartes even went so far as to say “I think, therefore I am”. It’s tricky then to know yourself only as space. Yet it is the space in your mind, that allows thought to even be. This space is who you are, not the thought that lavishly sits in that space. A thought, any thought is your servant. If it does not serve you, then it has no place in your beautiful mind. Instead, make a little space in your mind and come to know who you are beyond thought.
