A comment by Jiddu Krishnamurti

in the recent publication of the Krishnamurti Foundation of America's
Spring 2011 Foundation Focus, there is an interesting quote:

"People have asked me that before, and I always feel that they expect
to hear the dramatic account of some sudden miracle through which I
suddenly became one with the universe. Of course nothing of the sort
happened. My inner awareness was always there; though it took me time
to feel it more and more clearly; and it equally took time to find
words that would at all describe it. It was not a sudden flash, but a
slow yet constant clarification of something that was always there. It
did not grow, as people often think. Nothing can grow in us that is of
spiritual importance. It has to be there in all its fullness, and the
only thing that happens is that we become more and more aware of it.
It is our intellectual reaction and nothing else that needs time to
become more articulate, more definite."

Krishnamurti 1934
