KRISHNAMURTIAN ABSENCE OF PAST

Well, Cass has just revealed her Krishnamurtian influence. She is erasing the law of karma. She is trying to cancel the past. This is Krishnamurti. This may be Liberal Catholic Church, but this illusiohn was fundamentally brought into the movement by Krishnamurti. Yet the law of causation, and of cause-and-effect, still rules life.
The Eternal Now includes past and present, with their results and seeds. From one Manvantara to another, through Pralaya, or from one week-time to another, Past Time is always most significant.
All Buddhism, and all Theosophy, is about the law of karma. And Karma Law teachings are present in every religion.
The Krishnamurtian thesis that past the has no meaning is very convenient at the political level for those who want to avoid facing past mistakes. Yet in the long run the policy of denial is not worthwhile.
Best regards, Carlos.

In my several books already published, I have discussed pretty much the future, as well as the present of our civilization. Yet we do need to understand the past in order not to repeat the same old mistakes. I usually discuss central elements in the acumulated experience of the last 2,500 years.
> Speaking of the interaction between past and present: the WWII, for instance, has more than one aspect to be understood yet. Look at the Gaza Strip, at Lebanon, and at Israel, right now, July 18. Present moment challenges involving Neo-Nazism, Terrorism and War has a lot to do with Theosophy as Theosophy is about compassion and planetary citizenship, and it is a decisive factor to open a way out of these obstacles.
