Member Statement

I've been studing Krishnamurti's thoughts for about 6 years. I'm interested to actually meet people who are also interested in his views. This site looks like an accelent way to do that now with it's maps and locations of the members. I currently work in a cafe that provides direct trade coffees. However I'm also interested in creating a cafe of my own that would create a focus of healthy foods and interests (talks yoga etc) with a large amount of Krishnamurti's writings to read or purchase. I most want to create it on the west coast but my contacts there are few. Please feel free to contact me with any imput or simply to chat about Krishnamurti. Thanks for reading.

Interview Answers

Do you think it advisable to introduce Krishnamurti to people you know? Have you ever done it and if yes, what are your experiences?

I don't introduce his thoughts to everyone I meet on a regular basis. Ussually I observe and find out how open they tend to be. Most of the people in my daily life don't leave room in themselves to accept the possibilities of certain thoughts or ideas that may conflict with self image or associations. So it becomes a one sided attempt at interaction. As long as someone seems to be more interested in thier images than curious in finding things out for the value of understanding I don't raise the topic. Though I have introduced his writings to many of the people who I am closest to. One instance I remember was when i gave a copy of Total Freedom to one of my closest friends. She got into his writing right away and said that it gave a more specific clarity to some similar thoughts that she had played over in her mind. Later she introduced it to her fourteen year old daughter. Who also finds Krishnamurti's work to be very interesting. It was a lot of fun to watch her introduce it to her duaghter and we all learn alot whenever we open a discussion. Since then they moved to Virginia but they both still discuss his writing on and off when something comes to mind.
