An essay which used to be the center of the current book.
Krishnamurti lectured that just a ‘psychological revolution’ can lead guy to a change of idea and taught that it used to be attainable to ‘empty the content material of cognizance’ on someone point in order to thoroughly renew and rework our proposal and emotional styles, and to loose us from self-restrictive and limitative conditioning.

In different phrases, whereas the method of concept can't be stopped, it truly is good attainable to alter the standard of our day-by-day suggestions, of our self-talk and of our regard upon feelings. during this experience, it's precise that, whereas we won't switch thought—because we'd like it for our cultural and technological progress—we can good switch the philosopher. And it's the latter what Krishnamurti intended through announcing that we must always ‘empty attention of its content.’
