It means to me that we must go beyond talking and threorizing. We must actually live the truth that K may have been speaking about.

Oh yes; and it means living death - the opposite of freedom.

yes ,teachings r meant to be lived in life and not only to be gathered/stored for information or knowledge only.

I think it perhaps has something to do with giving all one's attention, without effort, to everything that is happening within and without. It certainly does not mean simply reading books, watching videos or participating in dialogues.

Dont like this formulation. I would rather say is there any actuality of what K talks about in my life? Yes, there is.

I didn't come to that point yet. So I cannot say. It will mean something to me when I'll understand the whole structure of fear, pleasure, sorrow, desire ... & what is life & death.
Compassion and love are just words for me I do not feel them with my heart yet.

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.

I'm not sure. I think it is like the Buddhist phrase; Mindfulness. For myself there are particular phrases or single words that K uses and they have lodged in my brain. I toss them around and maybe get the ffeel of them and perhaps an understanding. I do not see the teachings as a dogma. I think K himself advised people to question everything that he said, not to take it as given. I think that is a healthy approach. When you see something as a fact then there is no longer any conflict

"living the teachings" means to me, to let come into being all K' proposals and observe what they are doing with or within oneself

Do not teach what you do not live.

Sure it has a profound meaning. All my life I was hiding from myself and was indulging in wishful thinking. The teaching has forced me to critically evaluate my life in a new light. I don't claim I have totally succeeded but I think I am on my way.

The phrase implies a duality; a gap between what one is & what one is trying to become. It implies imitation & conformity, which lead to conflict & sorrow.

Living the actuality.

i personaly don't like it. understanding his message sounds better to me. because i don't want to live his teachings i want to live my life, but thanks to some of the things i learned from him, i enjoy life more.

Yes. The teachings are not for intellectual amusement; if observed circumstances can be changed.

If you mean attention yes

No, or in a bad way.

No,if one does not see the truth of it,one can not be living it,a life without the illusion of self concern,to be as nothing as Krishnamurti says,total negation!
