Member Statement

After several years of thinking on K and his message, I have come to this analysis: If you love, then Life becomes your Beloved, or God, or however else you refer to it. To love you must have sensitivity to 'everything' including your self. It is like your heart embraces everything--even the ugliness.

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

While I was browsing a book by K in a library, a very young man beside me saw that I had a book by K and he suggested I read To Be Human. I knew then that he would not be forgotten by future generations.

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

One cannot set out to purposely "live the teachings" so I would have to say no. But there are certain things you can try to do in your life that K has done that might bear some fruit in this regard if you are lucky.

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

Yes, I think it is advisable but they did not seem to be 'set on fire' like my own experience with his words. Perhaps there is a time and a place for all things.

Do you think it is possible to make Krishnamurti more "practicable" than what he himself seems to have allowed for?

I think when you begin to understand his message, let it seep into your essence, the 'practicability' of it is not a problem.

Can dialogue - in the sense of sincere inquiry - be organized or can it only come about spontaneously, unprompted?

I suppose both are ways to engage. The sincere desire for inquiry has to be there for truly spontaneous, from the heart, discussion.
