Member Statement

Perhaps our greatest gift as man, consciousness, is our biggest downfall, and the path to our destruction. But perhaps it is still a gift, we just need to see it, to see what is, then it's time to start living.

Are there any aspects of Krishnamurti's teaching that you find implausible or difficult to accept?

On the surfice it may seem as if I have accepted all of Krishnamurti's teachings, but truly, deeply, I don't think I have accepted any of his teachings, as I am questioning deeper and deeper, rather than accept and be done with it.

How do you personally go about exploring the Krishnamurti's teachings (through personal study, dialogues, dvds)?

The teachings, in their essence, are perhaps my life. I watch videos, listen to talks, read books and generally soak myself in his teachings as a way to nudge me into internal dialogue when perhaps i am in need of a certain question to explore.

Do you ever feel that you have been conditioned by Krishnamurti's teachings?

more than conditioned by his teachings i feel i have been awoken to the conditioning upon me. The teachings are of little importance in comparison to the essence of what the teachings are about. The essence of these teachings have not conditioned me but done something much more profound, of which I cannot explain.

What future do you foresee for Krishnamurti's works? Do you think they will grow in importance or will they just gradually die away?
