Member Statement

I have signed up to be part of this web site not because of K. or what he might have talked about. What I am much more interested in is the types of people who are attracted to his writings. Many of those people, like me, are courageous enough to face their fears and look at who they think they are in a deeper and more factual way. Many also are concerned about the kind of world that is being left to our children and this is an strong interest of mine also.

Interview Answers

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

To be heard or even listened to, we must be able to speak in a way that the current world can understand. Issues of international aggression and earth changes must be address with all of the current, common knowledge available, it has more relevence. When the current generation is mostly interested in economic success, we must understand this fact before we can take the dialog deeper.

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

What makes K. different, for me, is his inquiry into awareness. It was by me taking this journey into awareness that I was able to see a door in my acculturation that allowed me to be rather than unlearning. The meditation of simple awareness starts a process that transforms effortlessly.
