What are we on this earth for?

Krishnamurti:  You are on this earth to live fully, happily with your whole being, free of ambition, greed and fear. If you are greedy or ambitious, you cannot live fully, because greed and ambition dissipate your energy.

To live fully is to live without fear, without sorrow, without asking a thing of the gods, because you would be a light onto yourself.

When you live fully - a light onto yourself - you will not follow anybody, you will have no nationality, or belong to any religious or political group.

As you would be a free human being it would, therefore, be possible to live in this world richly, whether you have little or much and, in that very active living you would beautify the earth.
