Close by

Stay close by
There’s nowhere to go
Stay close to feel
There’s nothing to do
In attention

Then thoughts think
Stay close by

Do we need a belief of any kind, and if we do, why is it necessary? That’s one of the problems involved. We don’t need a belief that there is sunshine, the mountains, the rivers. We don’t need a belief that we quarrel. We don’t have to have a belief that life is a terrible misery with its anguish, conflict, and constant ambition; it is a fact. But we demand a belief when we want to escape from a fact into an unreality.

– Krishnamurti
