Can the Brain Free Itself From All Self-Delusion?

Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Can the brain free itself from all self-delusion? - 11 October 1975 • Thought and the brain. • Can the brain free itself from all self-delusion? • Why has the self become important? • Can there be only sensation, thought, and no desire? • Can desire - which brings illusion, self-deception and all the complications of changing desires – can the root of desire be dissipated? • What prevents one from having a real insight? That is, seeing the truth of desire and therefore end it. Is it that we have never asked this question? • When there is no desire whatsoever then there is a total revolution, and that will affect the consciousness of man. • Is there a movement, an action that keeps the brain pure, uncontaminated?"
