These are These words and are the basis of K's teachings.
As we come more and more to the idea that the condition of the planet is our condition, and that the state of our body only defines the nature of our work in relation to this larger Reality, which is more "us" than our rind of flesh, then the idea of violence or revenge would become as ludicrous to us as anger or revenge by the personal man against his sore toe or finger.
We see an illustration of man's thirst to be either a follower or a leader in the dual reaction of her contemporaries to Madame Blavatsky. Some wanted her to follow them and revise her vision of Truth to fit theirs; while others ignored her teaching by trying to set themselves up as little "Blavatskys." Because she rejected both of these reactions, both critics and sycophants fell away, unable to accept the problems of independence.
Especially were they unable to accept the idea of independent altruism. Her critics and admirers found it difficult enough that she urged them to become independent, but that it was to be a self-sacrificial independence, one of discovering how to recognize the royal talisman of duty peculiar to one's own condition -- this was adding insult to injury. Again and again we see her return to the theme that help for the race can only come through individuals who have discovered their own natural pattern of work.

I think, I've started but don't sure that I've read all the book.
When I was young I was trying to read Krisnmaurti and even translated
several short things into Russian, but after all it was so boring that
I abandoned this kind of reading and never returned.
