A Relevant Message From Jiddu Krishnamurti ~ Untwine ~ 5 March 2015


This is such a remarkable post from Untwine, underscoring THE question that I feel is of the utmost relevance at this point in time ~ Are We Ready?

Untwine incorporates Jiddu Krishnamurti's wisdom in the post, one of which is a 13+-minute clip of JK addressing the social conditioning of Humanity. I watched it many years ago, and I re-watched it again today. JK's wisdom is more exigent than ever. We are unhappy with our situation, but we don't want to do anything about it. We are waiting for "someone else" to create a better world, then we just "slip into it". We were not ready then (in 1979)...are we ready now to create this desired world, TOGETHER?

ARE WE READY?

In 1911, Krishnamurti made the Order of the Star public. In 1929, he dissolved the organization. People were not ready.
"Jiddu Krishnamurti was born on 11 May 1895 in Madanapalle, a small town in south India. He and his brother were adopted in their youth by Dr Annie Besant, then president of the Theosophical Society. Dr Besant and others proclaimed that Krishnamurti was to be a world teacher whose coming the Theosophists had predicted. To prepare the world for this coming, a world-wide organization called the Order of the Star in the East was formed and the young Krishnamurti was made its head. In 1929, however, Krishnamurti renounced the role that he was expected to play, dissolved the Order with its huge following, and returned all the money and property that had been donated for this work."
