Do you think it is possible to make Krishnamurti more "practicable" than what he himself seems to have allowed for?

I think it will be more productive to view this as a "Living Spirituality" on the Indian model, you have "Great Speakers" and" less-than great-contributors", finally who are we to decide. The point is: If there are Seeds of Truth in these Teachings, they should be allowed the freedom and space to flower and bear fruit. As for the inevitable misconceptions, again Time will decide, Once a Teaching is "out there" there are a lot of 2-way interactions with the Consciousness of Mankind, there is a very intricate growth process that is beyond our control, we really don't know the ...ways of the Unknown. As for what " K would have allowed for" , first of all, the origins of these Teachings might have been well beyond him so they don't belong to anybody,: they are offered to mankind at this specific-and maybe critical- point in its evolution, and it is up to everyone who is atracted or intrigued by their content to decide. I think K had this rather obscure statement " If you give me a present and I don't take it, it means it is not mine" But if I understand it rightly, if I take is mine! I guess that's how it works, so congratulations for this Forum initiative-way better than a "chat" and...keep the good work. JR

Walls close in--thinking
Open space--meditating
Beauty and meaning

K states, "Come upon this space life is exgtraordinary, sense of beauty and meaning. Carol McCarthy
