All that we have invented,
the symbols and
the rituals in the church,
they are all put there by thought.

Thought has invented these things.
invented the savior,
invented the temples in India
and the contents of the temples.

Thought has invented all
these things called sacred.
You cannot deny that.
So thought in itself is not sacred.

And when thought invents god,
god is not sacred
So, what is sacred?

That can only be understood
or happen when there is complete freedom,
from fear, from sorrow,
and when there is this
sense of love
and compassion
with its own intelligence.

Then , when the mind
is utterly still,
that which is sacred
can take place.
- J. Krishnamurti
