An economic revolution without this internal revolution would make no sense, because hunger is the consequence of economic disruption caused by our psychological states, greed, envy, the will to harm, the possessive sense.
In order to put an end to the torment of hunger and wars, a psychological revolution is needed, and few of us agree to see that fact. We will discuss peace, plans, we will create new leagues, the united nations indefinitely, but we will not break peace, because we will not renounce our situations, our authority, our money, our possessions, Our stupid lives.
Counting on others is totally futile; others cannot bring us peace. No political leader will give us peace, no government, no army, no country.
This internal transformation is not isolation, a setback to action. On the contrary, there can be no effective action only when thought is clear, and there is no clear thought without knowledge of self.
Without Self-knowledge, there is no peace." Krishnamurti
