All of the above. I think what has helped the most in understanding what K was saying are the discussions he had with Dr. Bohm that can be read in the two books THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY and THE ENDING OF TIME.

In the perception of reality, one's life, the teachings may become a distraction.

I don't explore in that sense, but video is great...

I take walks, and I consider the subjects on my walks. I haven't "studied" for years, and I can't see myself returning to "study."

I personally, am not exploring anything.
An "exploration" either continues ad infinitum, or at some point, one sees all that needs to be seen and goes on with life.

The teachings point to my condition. I come to a forum, inspired to dialogue, and learn about the conditioning. Some see this as futile, and the error of my ways. I see it as a beginning.

La cosa mas importante es entender lo que JK nos dice, ya que solo asi somos capaces de vivir por nosotros mismos tales hechos., y solamente cuando vivimos semejante comprension, entonces somos capaces de compartirlas!
Lo realmente importante es que podamos todos juntos compartir los hechos de los que habla JK, porque nosotros todos juntos podremos crecer como seres humanos ., y eso es toda una maravilla!

The most important thing, is to understand what JK says to us, because only in this way we are able to live by ourselves that facts., and only when we live such understanding, then we are able to share it!
The really important thing is that all together can share this facts that talks JK, because all together can grow up as human beings ., and this is a marvell!

In everyday life - watching and alone. In discussions with a partner who shares the passion of the inquiry. And through personal study, as we have an extensive library of the whole teaching - which I did read constantly for a number of years, but now consult only occasionally.

This brain observes everything it does both within and without...realizing that such a distinction is ultimately meaningless. I have dispensed with an animal based diet. One acts technically and not reflexively psychologically.

All of the above. But the more you study yourself, the deeper you understand the teachings.

I try to live the teachings, as much as possible, through my daily relationships.

I also do a lot of personal study, mostly reading K.

reviewing his teaching and then going away from that.

How do I personally go about exploring the Krishnamurti teachings?

Be it experimenting with going through the day's activities just before retiring to bed, which is not exactly introspection, but just recalling the days events with factual memories without putting one's own two cents in it, or reading K, watching or listening to K DVDs, partaking in dialogue groups, I stop it if it sounds merely verbal and nothing beyond. The moment it is only verbal, it becomes repetitive, a worthless dead heap of ashes.

As long as the effect one feels is non-verbal, there is never a repetition but it is always new and fresh and therefore enlightening.

This is the way I explore into K teachings.

through daily living, dialogue being part of that...both via the internet and in closer relationships...

I am currently using the study guide Choiceless Awareness. I read a bit, sit quietly looking out the window at the beautiful scenery and listen to the next thought as it emerges. I listen for any comment made to that first thought and continue to observe the inner dialogue. I call it dialogue because there is often no concluding, a stream of comment at the end of which is often a period of silence. This reveals to my mind the conclusions my mind has already come to. Doing nothing about it, it continues to reveal its depth. When the urge to get up and do something else occurs I get up and do it.

For last several years study of books has stopped. Self Inquiry is the path of exploration in the present.

Solid grounding (dare I say conditioning?) from my darling mother; am now following orgkrishnamurti on Twitter but don't do much else in the Krishnamurti line.
