Recently Eva, an old member of this site, visited India.Meeting with her was a very refreshing experience. knowing somebody virtually and actually meeting somebody are not one thing. its first time I have meet somebody who is influenced by K, and its great to see that K teaching transforms, it makes better human being. My whole family cherish her company, her affectionate nature.I learned many things. Language is not the only communication tool, I think there was good communication even though I lack the sufficient words and sentences in this language, and in addition I have hearing problem.

Well it changed my previous instance, that if you don't transform then K teaching is waste, now I feel K teaching has very positive enriching effect on life even if you don't transform.

I wonder what K himself might say about a statement like this?

Jack, yes, she is still teaching and will continue to teach for few more years, before she retires.

Words that bring comfort and a warm fuzzy feeling of security are always welcome on this forum. One can see that by the responses on this very thread. However, words that do not bring a happy friendly feel, are generally avoided and frequently blasted as an enemy. And you know, as history has shown, I have few if any comforting words.........soooooo, "I'll just sit here on this bank of sand and watch the river flow". ;)

"HAVE YOU EVER sat very quietly without any movement? You try it, sit really still, with your back straight, and observe what your mind is doing. Don`t try to control it, don't say it should not jump from one thought to another, from one interest to another, but just be aware of how your mind is jumping. Don't do anything about it, but watch it as from the banks of a river you watch the water flow by. In the flowing river there are so many things - fishes, leaves, dead animals - but it is always living, moving, and your mind is like that. It is everlastingly restless, flitting from one thing to another like a butterfly."

I wonder if Robert Zimmerman read Krishnamurti? I got the line from one of his songs, you know.

Anyone own the truth, what is behind the curtain. It is there to be seen with the naked eyes.... blowing in the wind.

I figured that part of the reason some of the "old timers" have left is because uncle Randy pounded them mercilessly over their whimsical mythical imaginative speculations about this or that. So I have decided to be less of an @$$ and more of a watcher. Please carry on with the tides of pleasurable words and ideas. ;)
