MKR, Organizations and Independence
May 07, 2006 08:21 AM
Dear MKR, Dear Friends,
I agree with much of what MKR said, see below.
I add that the facts he describes do not mean that organizations are useless. Organizations can only reflect what people are: some manipulative, some naive or tending to blind belief.
As people evolve, so evolve organizations, and family life, and friendship relationships, and internet lists, and so on.
In an attempt to get suddently rid of all organizations, J. Krishnamurti said they are completely useless. But he did not have much success. His own Krishnasmurti Foundations were and are one-man shows, as they work solely with his own books and tapes.
There can be no social life without some form of organization.
Yet if we gradually liberate ourselves, our organizations will improve.
