Your mind is the result of many yesterdays. Your mind is the result of the past, and without being free of the past totally, it is not possible to have a new, religious mind. Now, to see that past totally, completely, is to break down the past immediately. But you cannot break it down immediately if your mind is in the grip of knowledge which says, ‘I will gradually accumulate, and I will eventually break it’. It must see the conditioning immediately.

~ J. Krishnamurti
