And I believe that Krishnamurti came at the appropriate time. He focused (for me) on the personal ego and gave insights into how the ego deludes itself. Until we come to understand and accept the personal ego not as master but as slave we will always be victims of our past actions (karma) However, the journey is long and arduous with much soul searching in how we came to be what we are. Gurdgieff also helped in the aspect by teaching us to wake up, and catch the process of thought or as K's calls it, the thinker. However, for some, Krishnamurti's advaita? system can be mentally challenging, which can lead to mental imbalance for westerners.

Should it be called Theosophic Society, or Meditation Society, or...?
That would not say much, since K's teaching is unique, and if one
wants to locate it in space and time, an appropriate
label/indication is necessary.
But you say... 'Look at this man's big Ego!... he has his name on
the door... he is dishonest and crooked!"
Opinion, dsitortion, conclusion, trap.
Only you can jump out of it...
but I doubt you want... for
it is rather _satisfying_ for the
sense of the self-center.

Jb: Thank God for that!; otherwise one would get a soup/cocktail of
the 1001 saviours and gurus...
but if you prefer that, I am not arguing with it - I have mixed
myself all kinds of models and 'experts' and dogmatic religions,
many years ago... till I found the foolishness of it -

Sorry, but here I have to slightly, smile...
..."concepts"... "karma".... ?!
I can see that you are not acquainted with what Direct Insight is...
nor with what Krishnamuri had to say on these.
You seem to follow the path of a Believer... - copying and repeating
others' 'concepts' -
and Not that of a free inquirerer and Discoverer, _first hand_.

Theosophy, Universal Wisdom, higher self (triad), and Antahkarana.
Jb: If I may share with you my honest view
on what your message shows, is this:
You are trapped
in the matrix of
and dogmatic 'truths',
sinking your vision
into a swamp of
My friendly advice: start to SEE
things _as they are_...
which means, throw away everything
you have learned from tradition
and the 'experts'.
> Aren't these some FACTS?
Jb: I have already replied to that.
And there are more of them.
