Not Minding What Happens

 Yes Krishnamurti did not mind what happens, and yet he may have had an affair with his best friend's wife. Krishnamurti also never had to work a regular job, or had a family or struggled financially. He was taken care of --drove nice cars, wore expensive suits. It is easier to not mind what happens when you are given all the necessities of life and the comforts. Krishnamurti was indeed wise, but let's not forget the circumstances in which he said them. I'm sure many of us have had stretches of time when we did not mind what happened so much...until the bills have to be paid, or our children become sick. Actually wakefulness has preferences, it just doesn't base its existence on them...
