Pathless Land

"I maintain that truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. 
Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or coerce people along a particular path. ... 
This is no magnificent deed, because I do not want followers, and I mean this. The moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. 
I am not concerned whether you pay attention to what I say or not. I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free. I desire to free him from all cages, from all fears, and not to found religions, new sects, nor to establish new theories and new philosophies."    - J. Krishnamurti
"To be truly critical is not to be in opposition. Most of us have been trained to oppose and not to criticize. When a man merely opposes, it generally indicates that he has some vested interest which he desires to protect, and that is not deep penetration through critical examination. True criticism lies in trying to understand the full significance of values without the hindrance of defensive reactions."      - J. Krishnamurti

That's it in a nutshell.

Although we can sometimes wander in the wilderness together.

I like these statements.

I feel that no two human beings are exactly the same. They say this about snowflakes. They say that no two are exactly the same.
Therefore each individual's route to universal truth will be different. A 'pathless land'. You must make your own way. But this doesn't mean we don't have things in common. Things that we share. We do.

I do feel that universal truth exists. A thing that is true for one and all.

Heh. Priests, Farmers, Warriors, all play. Heyokas, the caste that is no caste, stIll get to be set up, and do the right thing just to piss off the structure. I can laugh until it hurts, maybe sometimes come off as making some sense, only when not expected.

Everyone is feeling that, but not nearly crazy enough to not be herded, in one form or another. That is the part of the cycle that is not in books, mostly just get hunted, that keeps the ones in the caste that is not from reporting. It would not make any difference, blowing it all to hell is working way too well, again.
