Member Statement

Since my early years discussions confuse me, as speculative, absolute, not logic, emotional and absurd. For myself a better and adequate way for this is dialogue. Dialogue is like wisdom a pathless landscape, without any ideology, any leader, without any approach.

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

During the years 1972 -1985 I participated at the Saanen Krishnamurti Gatherings, when Krishnamurti was alive. From this important starting point I integrated later on dialogue groupes and TCI groups (Theme Centered Interaction by R.C. Cohn) in my daily professional life. This was an important background as co-author of “Dialogging”©, author and facilitator of "Quantum Dialogging". Meanwhile I feel hang around in a pathless land ... group dialogue is no more an aim, sometimes a gift, mostly an egoistic trip ...when there is nobody there is no message.... when there is no message there is nobody .... incognito ergo sum

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

This happens in a constructed world by biographical experience, thoughts, interpretations, constructions and ideas (K:"and all the stuff of it"):
Earth is flat, pigs can fly and nuclear power is safe (Greenpeace)!
After 2400 years of philosophical reflections, from Socrates to Sir Karl Popper (1902-1994), an ordinary ignorant human being has nothing left to do, like confessing one’s philosophical impotence: “I know that I know nothing and not even that »! And since K there is nothing else to add for ordinary PhD's unless contemplation ...

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

When I explore, I want to discover, what I did to many years and what I'm actually doing. But really, is there something to discover, to find? Surely not!

Does the phrase "living the teachings" have any meaning to you?

Teaching as no more meaning for me. Living in a pathland land - OK.

If you had to sum up what Krishnamurti is all about in just a few words of your own, what would they be?

my first and last reference for any question about life and society. I know that I am K focused. Is it possible to really think by myself? Who is this I myself? Maybe there isn't anybody, emptiness and even that?
