Interview Answers

Do you think Krishnamurti was exceptional, or is the transformation he spoke of universally accessible?

He was a master of masters paving the way for the rest of us to gain access to freedom from mind and its processes. Yet, there have been and we have around us enlightened individuals, very few but real anyway.

Are there any aspects of Krishnamurti's teaching that you find implausible or difficult to accept?

The sudden realization that the mind is pure past, uncapable of creativity. Although one can accept the explanation behind it, this is not realization, and the sudden acrupt change seems so far removed from our reach.

Does the phrase "living the teachings" have any meaning to you?

It is a paradox, since JK aimed at no teachings, so, no learnings.

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

Honestly, I do not. There were no approaches, methods, or practices taught, simply because he did notbelieve in a path to be shown. Overcoming the mind with the help of the mind seems an impossible task to undertake.

JK would probably would have been irritated by this question. It goes against one of the basic premises of what he believed.

Both and neither.

How do you strike a balance between healthy doubt and ready acceptance in investigating Krishnamurti's proposals?

Why strike a balance? All seasons have their time and every intention its ocassion. Going thru the experiences of confronting and observing your mind, aided by JK´s hints, is like a being carried back and forth by the tide. There are some moments in which you are eventually thrown on the sand. Then, just be be overwhelmed by the moment.
