Gathering Quietness

“Sit absolutely quietly without a single movement so that your hands, your eyes, everything is completely quiet–what happens? While you were going to the room you watched the trees, the flowers, you have seen the beauty of the earth, the sky, the squirrels, you have watched everything around you, you come into the room; then you don’t want to look out any more. You have finished with looking out; you have finished by looking very carefully at everything as you came in. Then you sit absolutely quietly without a single movement; you are gathering quietness without any forcing. Be quiet. Then when you leave, when you are teaching or when you are learning this or that, there is a quietness going on all the time.”
(Krishnamurti on the daily Brockwood morning assembly meeting in “Beginnings of Learning,” p. 103)
