What is Dialogue?
Krishnamurti referred to his talks and the communication of his teachings as a process of participatory dialogue. K said that these dialogues were to be honest, friendly, non-intellectual explorations into our shared everyday human condition: an inquiry into the lack of freedom and love in daily life which lies festering at the root of all our problems.
According to K, these shared roots can be uncovered in dialogue and transformed. Fully engaging in a process of questioning, careful listening and thinking together, the patterns of thought that are conditioning all our relationships might be revealed through inquiry and insight. Since we hold dear and are forever acting out the very patterns we are investigating, a great deal of honesty, sensitivity and relaxation is necessary to actually see for ourselves that which is usually kept hidden.
There is no new knowledge to learn and apply, only the truth of conditioning to observe directly. There is no emphasis on self realisation or comparison – no importance of me and you – only a collective psychological illusion to be seen through, together.
Whether this kind of dialogue or inquiry is possible can only be up to the very person who is interested to find out: the deeper the interest, the deeper the intention to participate and explore.
It is in this spirit of inquiry that our online dialogues will take place.
