Member Statement

I am a life long observer of life, an ACTIVE observer. NOT a teacher, NOT a seeker, NOT an advocate of any particular view. I DO believe that one has to take action on a personal level in this world to restore its natural balance and NOT simply sit on the sidelines. Too many of us do absolutely nothing to help the condition of the world.

Interview Answers

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

As a body of thought to be looked into and applied? Absolutely. We have learned so much about who we are as human beings on every level in these 20+ years since his death. Krishnamurti had difficuly with his own personal ego state which hindered him from deep application in the real world. This can be explored.

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

Absolutely. BUT only to people who have a NATURALLY open mind. I have found that if individuals aren't ready and you do not have the personal time to spend with them, it is a total waste of time. In THAT case and if I believe there is future potential, I will give them the book Freedom From The Known and suggest that they take a look WHEN they have questions.

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

Krishnamurti the body of knowledge or Krishnamurti the man? They are NOT the same. HE was someone who was able to shut down or subdue the left hemisphere of the brain where the Self resides and experience the world in an ancestral way. He has BEEN THERE and spent his life exploring it, trying to understand it, communicate it, and gently suggested that we do the same.

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

Krishnamurti the man was truly exceptional. In theory the transformation is universally accessible BUT many, many doors with remain forever unopened in actuality.
