Jiddu Krishnamurti - Belief



Belief is not reality. 
You may believe in God, 
but your belief has no more reality 
than that of the man who does not believe in God. 
Your belief is the result of your background, 
of your religion, of your fears, 
and the nonbelief of the communist and others 
is equally the result of their conditioning. 
To find out what is true, the mind must be free from belief and nonbelief. 
I know you smile and agree, but you will still go on believing 
because it is so much more convenient, so much more respectable and safe. 
If you did not believe, you might lose your job, 
you might suddenly find that you are nobody. 
It is being free of belief that matters, 
not your smiling and agreeing in this room.
