My life has changed, since I began to be like I am.
For 13 years, I was teacher in a school for physical therapy in a big clinic. Now, I'm a pianoteacher and - player and I don't know what future brings. I'm married and I have three children in the age between 6 and 13.

How do you strike a balance between healthy doubt and ready acceptance in investigating Krishnamurti's proposals?

There are two kinds of dissatisfaction: one on the base of opinion, violence and one without any opinion, any assessment. The first is to be thrown overboard, the second is to be kept alive.

How important do you consider group dialogue to be in understanding the more subtle points of Krishnamurti's message?

Do you think it advisable to introduce Krishnamurti to people you know? Have you ever done it and if yes, what are your experiences?

For me,it is not the question of advisable or not advisable, I have to do it, and I do it nearly every day. My experiences? Krishnamurti is almost unkown in my surrounding and the biggest problem for people is to understand that there is nothing to change.

Has coming into contact with Krishnamurti and his teachings had any perceptible effect on your life and/or relationships?

Yes, sure. One week after the first contact with Krishnamurti, I broke off my studies in science of physics and I left church/christianity.

Do you think Krishnamurti was exceptional, or is the transformation he spoke of universally accessible?

He was not a genius, a guru or something other, but he was exceptional in his simplicity. Isn't it the most difficult to be simple? I think that the transformation he spoke of is universally accessible, but it's a hard work.
