An organized dialogue can help to a number of people that need to listen and share experiences, in spite of the work that we must do by our own.

Sincerity is the worst way to lie.

Combination of both this factors may lead to an unexpected success.
At any rate, if you are expecting something, whatever it might be, you can get anything but truth.

It can be organized but for what purpose? To destroy the inherent truth which only comes about in spontaneity? Organizations have not saved man, so how can organized dialogue and inquiry? Let us go off script, and truly explore ourselves is that not the point of this website?

Sincere inquiry defies organization.

I feel that we can organise a time and a place for people to meet. Will it turn out to be sincere inquiry? Will it be spontaneous & unprompted? Perhaps it depends on the sensitvity of the people involved.
This is an opinion, I feel I'm walking on thin ice. I don't really know the answer

I think it should come about spontaneously, unprompted.

The organized dialogue will be like arranged marriage.

I guess both, in principle. And yet dialogue, not only as a sincere enquiry but as true communication amongst people interested in K, does not happen. We meet, we talk, we have a lovely time, and we exchange ideas, opinions and 'insights' --or so we call them. But the depth of our dialogues is always within safe limits (and when it is not, we encounter a poor soul who uses the opportunity for some sort of therapy-in-the-group). May be there is no much more depth in any of us... Dialogues carried out in Brockwood Park and Ojai are as intense and meaningful as those taking place in Theosophical groups; only the subject varies.

It helps for a group to have 'ground rules' for the dialogue. For instance: listen to each other; share the 'air time' (talking); don't cross-talk (one conversation in the group at a time); don't change what someone else said; etc.

Why does one have to be hung up on "dialogue". I see a lot of words being used here that K used but there is a sense that they are being used mechanically. I'm not sure this is a sincere question at all. :-)

It can only come about spontaneously. Organization is some kind of authority and disorder.

It has to come spontaneously, unprompted. There will be no dialogue if one is not ready for a sincere inquiry. One has to be at a stage in ones spiritual development that initiates the inquiry.
The problem with dialogue, is the tendency to intellectualise his teachings, instead of applying reasoning to the teachings. By intellectualising in dialogues, the mind is inclined to go around in circles, Reasoning must be applied.

A person has to use their head.. I hear people on this forum saying that thought is not present when there is perception but it can be construed in 2 different manners. To block thought (which is what these members are implying) or to understand it, which means you can perceive while it is happening just as hunger, desire, appetites.. We are human and to turn off desire or thought is unnatural and will cause imbalances in your spontaneity or response or capacity to respond. Of course it can be organized just as any kind of intellect.. mathematics etc. Thought is necessary, you must manage and organize it or else you will sound like one of those people in church channeling the tongues of Jesus.

What is the sense of organizing dialogue if sincere inquiry only comes about spontaneously, unprompted? Is that the question? I suppose you organize it to allow for that inpromptu spontaneity.
