The Book of Life

Why do you want to be
a student of book
instead a student of life?
The story of mankind
The vast experience
The deep-rooted fear
anxieties, sorrow, pleasure, love, and hate

On learning and listening
on being into becoming
on independence and attachment
on hope and desire
on intention into attention
on words and questions into wordless presence
on choices and acceptance
on violence and compassion
on living and dying
on time and space

and all the beliefs that man has accumulated,
You are that book…

Jiddu Khrisnamurti
