my secret

J. Krishnamurti, the great Indian philosopher and spiritual teacher, 
spoke and travelled almost continually all over the world
 for more than fifty years attempting to convey through words
…that which is beyond words. 

At one of his talks in the later part of his life, he surprised his audience by asking,
 “Do you want to know my secret?”

Everyone became very alert. 
Many people in the audience had been coming to listen to him for twenty or thirty years and still failed to grasp the essence of his teaching. Finally, after all these years, the master would give them the key to understanding.

“This is my secret,” he said.

 “I don’t mind what happens.”
