I do believe that K was exceptional, but each of us in our own way can be transformed.

The interesting thing here is to wonder about what this universal is, because when it is seen that we ARE the world, the radical change in one IS universal by nature in itself..But, that change is never accessible to any SELF/past/knowledge/memory!

Yes he was exceptional but the transformation of each one of us is always possible as truth, as in what is, is constantly present. We just choose to ignore it.

Krishnamurti was exceptional although not the only exceptional individual to come to our attention.

he was exceptional, yet what he pointed to HAS to be accessible.

I don't know. He and Nitya sure did a lot of running around on the Astral Plane or the Knowledge Plane or whatever during his messiah days, if that means anything. And his "process" --- what the devil was that??? Burning pains in his head and neck and talking in a baby voice in his sleep --- WOAH!! That doesn't sound very inviting to me. But a life without conflict: NOW we're talking. I think that's possible. But without the cosmic migraines and the baby voice, please...:-)

This is a very dangerous question which was raised a lot of times when K. was alive. It's not what we think that has importance or meaning but to decide whether you are satisfied with your life and with human consciousness. Do we have choice?

This - I think - is a lazy question similar to that which is well known in Zen: "Can dogs reach enlightment"?
Why one should ask such a question? This is just playing with ideas. The answer the Zen master gave was: "What matters is wether you will reach enlightment..."

If K. was exceptional than we have no possibility as "common" human beings. How comfortable is this excuse!

The question incorporates a couple of prior assumptions.

If he had really "done " it , this is the "normality" of the whole brain , the global insane world is the exception.

He was a thinker. transformation is not easy and is very difficult with his line of thought

Yes he was exceptional
I object to the word transformation as I think it is misleading and the source of much mischief.

Can people heal what is sick within them?

Do people heal that sickness that is within them?
Sometimes partially, rarely deeply.

Sure definitely he conveyed just to look into things and explore which is so true and without any questions and contradictions applies universally and can bring the needed transformation as well.

It is of my understanding and observation that humanity is not yet ready and or matured enough for the kind of radical revolution that Krishnamurti proposed with rare exceptions perhaps.

I pray that it is accessible to all, due to the importance I seek it with my whole being..

It is accessible when you dissolve the illusion you have of society, meaning yourself, in so that you break away from 'tradition' and live an authentic life.

Yes, it is clear that the quest to observe human consciousness be continued and not stagnate. However this will not be achieved by repeating the renditions, dialogues and writings of K wrestling with his own thoughts. K opened the door to viewing consciousness for the next generation to enter. Only when this next step is undertaken will a transformation in human consciousness be possible.

Think Krishnamurti was exceptional. Still the transformation he talk about might be a distant possibility.
Is the people who try to follow or communicate with the teaching anyway different from the others? After negating the ideals, symbols, the culture, the practices of meditation if the mind stops, will it becomes sluggish and deteriorate? Many followers of K thinks they are in the verge of a transformation and later grow bitter.
Think you must not take the teaching as a guide line for transformation but as a mirror to reflect human mind which is oneself.

Yes he was exceptional but acted like a ordinary human being
Yes the transformation he spoke of is universally accessible because of the modern technology but unfortunately not many people are transformed because
Transformation is an individual thing
It's not depend on technology or any other stuff

It appears he was exceptional. But I believe the transformation he spoke of was accessible as well.
