No Perception At All

Central Australia

 

My powerful quote today is from the amazing Eastern philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiddu_Krishnamurti

The quote is from his wonderful book, “All the Marvelous Earth”.

 

Our perception is not only with eyes, with the senses, but also with the mind, and obviously the mind is heavily conditioned.  So intellectual perception is only partial perception, yet perceiving with the intellect seems to satisfy most of us, and we think we understand.  A fragmentary understand is the most dangerous and destructive thing.”

To judge and make knowledge without use of the five senses creates no perception at all.
