Re: Theos-World Re: Krishnamurti, theosophy, & the TS

Martin, one major flaw, imo, in Krishnamurti's teaching is that he incarnated with his lower self under his control.  For us to do this can result in mental trauma as it requires us to deny inner truths.  Memory is a major factor, and to deny a memory of a past incident in our life is to deny its existence, which is clearly delusional.  This is why I believe Advaita can be very dangerous for the western student.

          Dear Aryel Sanat:

I read your piece of thought and some stuff on your
A very good article there is about Avatara's.

This idea of avataras has kept me busy since I agreed
on swallowing the food my evil mother tried to put in
my mouth when I was 1 year of age.
48 years later I am transforming my ego into non ego
and thus receiving Ego.
The most interesting here is this 'new' Ego is the
same as I feel within others, ain't that weird!
Especially when I feel a wave of this new Ego entering
this system of mine, people look at me and talk to
me:' I know you but can't remember you?'
I never met these people!
Then I see me playing any instrument as an super
virtuoso, answering all questions with the right
sollutions, to be followed by an enormous sense of
wrath and justice.
The waves in me stop a while then and I become ego
again for a while. A real shizophrenic I woulöd say,
I feel I am halfway the process now and on the
crossroads of speak or shut up...I choose speak for a
while, since I am sober enough not to have this
personality be sucked up in vanity fair nor does it
have the idle idea of being of ANY importance. We are
all One, so I am just 1 of those billions of needles
sticking out of the 'voodood' earth.
I can hear the drums of war in the near future and I
am sure you will be confident then to know Theosophy,
theosophy will have merged into Theoschatty. You ask a
Dutchman what the word 'schat' means :-)
