I believe ... that Krishnamurti; as so many others in the human race; IS "Illuminated" and only since reading his life story (M. L.), then reading and listening to his words (thanks to your organisation); ... so much is sudenly, then, blooming ... so beautifuly, so clearly (in my mind/thoughts/emotions/psyche) ... as if ... finally coming out of the desert, I have now access to an infinite fresh water spring, and ... drinking from that water, ... (re connect ?) ... understand ... LIFE, LOVE, the Source ...

Without question was Krishnamurti a exceptional man. The transformation he spoke of is not universally accessible rather for a very small choosen few.

K. exceptional ? is topical, mere idle speculation.
Even if transformation only PARTIALLY accessible, it would not diminish the urgency
of that effort. Serious Commitment to such transformation WILL create the capacity to transcend present limitations.
For those who fail to ask " How Shall I live" in a motivated way, not even the Messiah
could do much, up to now !!

Krishnamurti was exceptional in the sense that he could describe endlessly and in great detail both the inward and outward human condition. Perhaps most people could do this if we had similar circumstances and the interest. Being groomed as a saviour may have been the key impetus to coming up with the correct answer and of course the feeling of responsibility. Though most of us may feel that we are the saviour of mankind I doubt we break through that feeling very much.

I think that K preferred it to be seen as universally accessible. I listen to him without saying 'possible' or 'impossible'. I am open to the perfume of this extraordinary flower.

We're all sort of exceptional, aren't we? Yes I believe the 'transformation' about which he speaks is universally accessible; although whether his 'transformation' equates to my understanding of what his 'transformation' might entail is probably up for debate. I'm not being very articulate because the evening is rushing on and I still have to make my supper and do a million other things before bed.

Both of these. Krishnamurti has an exceptional life. He was admirable, when he refused the role of a guru, Jesus or whatever. He was only realistic in his teachings and everybody can choose to be that too, if only one wants.And the transformation can happen in one.

K was not the only one to understand the insights; in that sense he was not exceptional. He was one of the few. It seems obvious to me that there are some people who do not have the mental equipment to get the message.

I'm proof that it is universal, if of course I aint just deluding myself... a ha!

K knew 'the Other'. He had touched the Ground. His idiom is contemporary, but what he talks about is timeless. The transformation he refers to has happened before, and will happen again and again. It doesn't happen to everyone - in this sense it is not 'universally accessible'; but it can happen to anyone and is therefore universally accessible.

Yes K's views on life is exceptional.

Exceptional in the way he was able to set that "connection" with the wholeness, but he was also very human and that implies that possibility exists for all of us regardless of any background. Fear and attachment, I think, it's our main obstacle to grasp that comprehension.

K was certainly exceptional in that he negated time as factors of enlightment or insight into things, whereas other allegededly enlightened gurus claimed that time is necessary in bringing about a fundamental change in the psyche of human.

I think Krishnamurti was exceptional, but eventually a lot of people will change.
At present we use thought a lot. Our urban life is highly techological and highly organised. We have to navigate a psychologically complex human evironment. Krishnamurti called it "our beleaguered existence" - with its double connotation of crisis-stricken and under siege. Sensitive people can't live under these conditions forever and we are not mentally equipped to find our way out. So there is a deep logical nessecessity for the change Krishnamurti proposes. It is not a choice that certain privileged people can make, it is forced on us by life.

He was exceptional and the transformation he lived and spoke of is available to almost everyone.

K was most definitely a very exceptional human being. And no, the transformation he experienced and spoke of will only be obtainable by a very few people.

I think the transformation is a ripening of uncountable factors which may or may not happen. Simply being present with "what is" may be possible for anyone as nothing is required but the capacity to be aware as the witness.

What he spoke of can be understood by anyone who has the serious intent to do so.

Krishnamurti was definately exceptional directly related to being raised free of conditioning, an attribute shared with Jesus Christ who was also raised free of conditioning. The condidioning is habitual behavior. Habits can be broken.

He knew he was the messenger and he understood and accomplished his mission. The rest of us are still digging our way to the sunlight.
