Has coming into contact with Krishnamurti and his teachings had any perceptible effect on your life and/or relationships?

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.

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

K said "do not follow anybody", he just point in some direction and I have to do the job. This is not about to do or feel the same that K did...it is me walking and looking at the world, watching and being. If you have something to balance, you are not aware...
