Oh yes! There have been dramatic changes in my life both at home and outside. Having a spouse who is also interested in K, we have frequent discussions on subjects that I come across while working on K's teachings. There is a much better awareness of Nature around me.

Tremendously yes.I started reading K's teachings at the age of 16 or so. Then I had fear,anger,sexual desire or some thing or other all the time.I was also deeply discontented and was suffering badly without any apparent reason.Now I am 48 and I do not have anything in life!But I don't have any of those emotions. From time to time I have peace in my heart.This comes into being when I read something by K,listen to him or when I watch myself carefully.Basically with attention.But I do not know whether there will be fear and so on under different circumstances.I still read K daily to understand this deeply.As for relationship a lot of people are in conflict with me!! However I don't suffer by this.Sometimes it disturbs me so this means the self image is coming up still.
I never saw nature as anythig to look at even years after reading K. Now sometimes nature is so enchanting that I feel the whole meaning of life is just looking around.
Without having anything at all in life now I consider myself to be a very lucky human being although I have not been able to awaken this love K talked about or seen truth.I still thank my friend who introduced me to K whenever I meet him!
I am inquiring now to see whether this love can come in to being.

He has given us the perfume. Can we hold on to that. Even if we hold on to that how can we express THAT. How people coming across, smell the purfume when many times people
could not take the perfume of K.

Positive. Awareness concerning the spiral thoughts which spring about 'myself' in relationship with other.... To see 'the conditioning' of each moment in continuous flow...Perceptible effect on everything "Appreciate much ...I do".

I would say that it has had a tremendous effect not in an 'experience' sense of the word but in the 'exploration' sense of the word. His teachings have been a reference point in daily life in many ways; considering the challenges I face in the educational world in regard to 'holistic' approaches in personal as well as professional life.
The perceptible effect in my life and relationships is that many a complexed and neurotic approaches of mine in earlier times have become very simple and straight forward; although a lot more is desirable.And that I'm able to share this candidly on an open forum is also very much the effect.

been reading k from school-days. so perhaps noticing any change became difficult. but am quite sure that it has provided me with something valuable to grow on.

Many years ago I believed that other people influenced who I was and how I thought. I believed that if I followed the example of others I would achieve a successful and happy life. One day I was ironing and watching television to distract myself from a much disliked job when I heard unusual words of a gentle man of Indian extraction who invited me to watch my thoughts and find the source of all my problems. At the end of the telecast interview he warned that once we opened the door to such inquiry we would never be able to close it again and he was right, for almost forty years I have continued to watch my intention and thought within the universal conciousness. Would I have found this path without K -I cannot answer that question.

Yes,I am more aware of my motives in my relationships.It is a personal affair and it is not important if it is perceptible to others or not.

Upon interacting in dialogue with K's recorded dialogues, I saw clearly and many conditions and ideals drop away in my living.
I left the Paths I had been traveling down for many years regardless of the positions I had attained on them and the relationships I would eventually loose that were based upon illusions no longer seen as valid. In short, a "Weapon of Freeing Destruction" was unleashed in the world I thought was valid and true. My Thought forms and Labels all disappeared, in the blink of an eye and the turn of a phrase.

Not fundamentally, because I was going in that direction from quite an early age.

Sometimes, I would say yes, when I am calm. I can be very calm when reading and discussing the teachings. But, when I panic, I wonder what good have the teachings been.

What does it mean to come into contact with K? There are all sorts of superficial interactions, but to come into contact must mean rather more than just a fleeting glimpse or an intellectual understanding. After all, K himself came into contact with the ground of all being. So what does that mean for someone who listens to him, reads him or watches him?

Yes, a lot, since I become in contact with K's teachings I do feel that my ordinary activity is smooth, somehow the heavy weight is gone and it doesn't matter what happen in my life there is no more suffering and worries. I have been reading K since 2000 and if I want to say a short version of my life now I will say....I'm acting, my life is like an actor running a movie...at the end of the movie he knows is going to real life.
