Interview Answers

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

I have studied Krishnamurti's teaching through personal study, books, and dvds and I am starving for human contact that will help me further explore and question all the things I have come across since K crossed paths with me so many years ago.

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

living the teachings means there is something to be taught. Is there? Or are we using our memory to re-create once again "new" lessons to be taught once again by a guru or priest or rabbi.

There is nothing to know and once this is realized then look freely into god's eyes.

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

Oh yes, I was introduced to K when I was about 14. It was what he said, as well as the arguments and discussions I had with him (virtual) that have and are impacting my life in a profound and effortless way.

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

I think it is vital. I have never been in an environment of group dialogue and I would love to be in such a setting.

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

I never started with doubt I started with curiosity of the great human experience. So this delima never occured to me.

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

I am totally conditioned not only by K, but by everything in my past. The only thing that is different about me today is that I see it, and that makes all the difference.

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

See it as it is and not how it is supposed to be.

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

Excellent question. The practicable aspects of K's teachings can only be created through group dialogue.

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

My biggest argument with K (if I may be so bold) is that he implied that change could happen now in this instant. I always felt that he taught me to see how I cannot change, how I am stuck in this paradigm of the brain. Once this was seen clearly I was paradoxicaly changed in an instant, and argued with him no longer.

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

I never felt comfortable talking about him or his teachings. although it has come up, I always felt more comfortable talking about my own truth.

I am a group facilitator and many of my groups have discussed many of the issues K speaks about, and I have felt that I was influenced by him (not only him) and out of this came my own truth.
