The Flight of the Eagle by Krishnamurti






The Flight of the Eagle is one of Krishnamurtis most read books. As many other of his works it is build upon public talk, these are held in 1969 in a range of countries in Europe, Asia and America. From the book:

“If we are to inquire deeply into what freedom implies, to be inwardly, completely and totally free – which then expresses itself outwardly in society, in relationship – then we must ask, it seems to me, whether the human mind, heavily conditioned as it is, can ever be free at all. Must it always live and function within the frontiers of its own conditioning, so that there is no possibility of freedom at all? One sees that the mind, verbally understanding that there is no freedom here on this earth, inwardly or outwardly, then begins to invent freedom in another world, a future liberation, heaven and soon.”
