“Freedom is not a reaction; freedom is not choice. It is man’s pretense that because he has choice he is free. Freedom is pure observation without direction, without fear of punishment and reward. Freedom is without motive; freedom is not at the end of the evolution of man but lies in the first step of his existence. In observation one begins to discover the lack of freedom. Freedom is found in the choiceless awareness of our daily existence and activity.”
— J. Krishnamurti, 1980

In 1929, he said “Truth is a pathless land”. Much as we might speak of the truths of this path or that path, this state or that, these are relative truths and fall away when the journey progresses. Unchanging truth is found at the end of all paths.
