Pessoa – The keeper of sheep

My colleague and friend, Ana, kindly allowed me to record a poem read by her of the noted Portuguese poet, Fernando Pessoa. He makes us speechless, when he utters:

To love is eternal innocence,
And the only innocence is not to think…

Krishnamurti uses the word “thought” a lot and it was interesting to see that there are some parallels between their works.

“In the space which thought creates around itself there is no love. This space divides man from man, and in it is all the becoming, the battle of life, the agony and fear. Meditation is the ending of this space, the ending of the me.” – Krishnamurti
