Meditation is the negation that cleanses the mind of every form of deception.
—Krishnamurti

Meditation is the deliberate discrimination between the true and the false and the subsequent negation of the false.
—Nisargadatta

If you are a political activist imagining that you are going to make the world ‘a better place’ or change other people ‘for the better, then you have not discriminated wisely.

Perhaps your second-hand ideas and desire to interfere in the lives of others and the way the world functions is not the solution but the problem—meditate on this.

You imagine that you have the ability ‘to do’. You do not! Meditate on this also.

(“I went in search of the enemy and was horrified to discover that ‘it’ was ‘me’!”)
