Member Statement

At the moment I'm not really thinking. Life has blessed me with everything I've ever really needed and more. I live what most people only dream of and talk about. Out of nothing I founded the multi-million dollar company which thrives each day, all out of sheer passion to create, explore, discover, learn, share. I'm somewhere in my thirties blessed with great health traveling not just the outer worlds but the amazingly rich and beautiful inner worlds. People often ask me, "who are you?" and I tell them,"I'm a nobody". What else do you want to know? :-)

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

It is of my understanding and observation that humanity is not yet ready and or matured enough for the kind of radical revolution that Krishnamurti proposed with rare exceptions perhaps.

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

One must question, doubt every thought, feeling action of not only oneself but even Krishnamurti's proposals. And that requires tremendous honesty, self doubt without turning cynical.

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

Totally. Coming in contact with Krishnamurti is like coming in contact with the exploding universe without limits. If you're going to expect all nice, lovely things then you're going to be disappointed for it is the stepping into the heart of the unpredictable, unknown, life.
