The Intention to Understand Ourselves

"To transform the world, we must begin with ourselves; and what is important in beginning with ourselves is the intention.

The intention must be to understand ourselves and not to leave it to others to transform themselves or to bring about a modified change through revolution, either of the left or of the right.

It is important to understand that this is our responsibility, yours and mine..."

(Jiddu Krishnamurti)
