There is nothing you can do to be liberated

“Krishnamurti says to people;
Now look, there is nothing you can do to be liberated because all of your efforts in the direction of liberation are phony. They are based on your desire to boost and continue your ego and that will never lead to liberation. All you can do,’ he says, ‘is to be aware of yourself as you are without judgement. See what IS.’ But then, if you can do that, you have no further problem. But if you try to do it, you’re in the same mess all over again…”
