To remain, not to escape, not to seek comfort,
not to run off to some form of entertainment,
religious or otherwise, but to look at it, live with it,
understand the nature of it – when you do that, sorrow opens the door to passion.
You are not passionate people because you have never understood
the nature of sorrow and the ending of sorrow.
You have become very dull.
You accept anything, accept sorrow, accept fear,
you accept being dominated by politicians, by your guru,
by all the books and traditions.
That means you never want to be free
and you are frightened to be free, frightened of the unknown.
You invent various forms of consoling,
illusory images and hopes.

― Jiddu Krishnamurti
