Can dialogue - in the sense of sincere inquiry - be organized or can it only come about spontaneously, unprompted?

It can be organized but for what purpose? To destroy the inherent truth which only comes about in spontaneity? Organizations have not saved man, so how can organized dialogue and inquiry? Let us go off script, and truly explore ourselves is that not the point of this website?

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

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 think it is advisable but dangerous and difficult. I have tried it and the person rejected it so I let it go. A person must learn at his own pace no?
