‘The material contained in this volume was originally presented in the form of talks to students, teachers and parents in India, but its keen penetration and lucid simplicity will be deeply meaningful to thoughtful people everywhere, of all ages, and in every walk of life. Krishnamurti examines with characteristic objectivity and insight the expressions of what we are pleased to call our culture, our education, religion, politics and tradition; and he throws much light on such basic emotions as ambition, greed and envy, the desire for security and the lust for power – all of which he shows to be deteriorating factors in human society.’From the Editor’s Note‘Krishnamurti’s observations and explorations of modern man’s estate are penetrating and profound, yet given with a disarming simplicity and directness. To listen to him or to read his thoughts is to face oneself and the world with an astonishing morning freshness.’Anne Marrow Lindbergh

Esther B. King was born in 1909, and has been witness to many changes in the world. She lived through two world wars, the great depression, several other wars such as the Korean War, Vietnam War, Desert Storm, and experienced new inventions in technology and the dawn of space exploration. She also has suffered many losses in her life such as the loss of her parents, her husband, her oldest son, her vision, and her home. Through all this Esther has managed to keep her faith in God. This book, which is really a collection of some of her newspaper articles written for a local newspaper column, shares her philosophy of life that is based upon her belief in God and the moral lessons taught in the Bible. This book is an easy read because of the brevity of the articles, and her writing is laced with Southern United States colloquialisms and down-home common sense. If you have little time to study, but want to become more familiar with the scriptures, then this is a perfect book for you!
Philippians 4:8 urges the reader to "Think On" a bunch of stuff - and Paul actually goes ahead and makes it easier by stating the nature of the meditations - "whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."This book is a collection of such thoughts - meditations of my heart. A collection of meditations and thought processes put together to help the reader in knowing and understanding more about God, about relationships, about finances, about cultures and religions, about politics - actually, just about anything that interests the seeker. My own conversations with God which I have put together for you to use, and I believe "is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that you may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
