Re: Theos-World Karma & Reincarnatio

Yes Krishnamurti says we must stop the warring within ourselves.  Easier said than done when it comes to millions of people.  How many of us have seriously challenged our own internal warfare?  Jesus said, love one another, that hasn't helped.  The Buddha said all life is suffering, well he got it right, but he should have added - for some. 
  It can be done, as the Tibetans were changed from a warring nation to the most spiritually inclined nation in the world, but it took over 1500 years to do it.

Further to my earelier response, which is below, I wish to add that works of J. Krishnamurti are very interesting in this context.
