Thanks nice quote, 
I have Wordsworth here on my shelves. Years ago in 1976 the Vessel of Light told us "Man is two men in one. One is awake in the Darkness. The other Asleep in the Light." It is a neat aphorism. We watched it all unroll before our eyes then, the conflict between the two natures each pulling to have the most control.What a spectacle and struggle. Inside us all are our dual nature and it is the story of all mankind. How aptly Wordsworth renders beauty to the titanic battle. One needs assistance to calm the waters and reach Harmony and Equilibrium and is fortunate to receive it.

Yes John, the experience I believe would be not unlike these words from Wordsworth's Imitations of Immortality - we retain the melding together of a brief moment of divinity. 

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: 
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, 60 
Hath had elsewhere its setting, 
And cometh from afar: 
Not in entire forgetfulness, 
And not in utter nakedness, 
But trailing clouds of glory do we come 65 
>From God, who is our home: 
Heaven lies about us in our infancy! 
Shades of the prison-house begin to close 
Upon the growing Boy, 
But he beholds the light, and whence it flows, 70 
He sees it in his joy; 
The Youth, who daily farther from the east 
Must travel, still is Nature's priest, 
And by the vision splendid 
Is on his way attended; 75 
At length the Man perceives it die away, 
And fade into the light of common day. 

Earth fills her lap with pleasures of her own; 
Yearnings she hath in her own natural kind, 
And, even with something of a mother's mind, 80 
And no unworthy aim, 
The homely nurse doth all she can 
To make her foster-child, her Inmate Man, 
Forget the glories he hath known, 
And that imperial palace whence he came.

Thanks for you comments and reply. I respectfully disagree specifically to the part as regards AB and Maitreya. My personal opinion and view is Maitreya then and now currently is just so much baloney and malarky. I have no agreement whatever that Maitreya as Bodhisattva or as the future Avatar was then or now a reality no matter how many times Besant or anyone else asserted it. And I view the Arhat garbage of Besant the same way. They used it to get their goal acheived as a fabrication in my humble opinion. I find the very idea insulting and offensive to Buddhism and Hinduism alike. Just my personal view. I would like to see someone find the actual views and reactions by respected Buddhist Lineage Holders to Besants claims about Maitreya that were voiced during that time. I don't think they appreciated it. 

In regards to the "Beloved" it is his Higher Self he refers to in my view ,even if he ascribes a "label" such as Maitreya. I just have a different viewpoint. There is no "Going up"or "Going down" the moment is the eternal moment of the now, all that is about and all that is of "I" are essence in unity. It is only the Doorway Nebulous to Time that opens and closes as the Portal from one to another that presents the enablement ofthe "Beloved" to present. By "Observer" I did mean the persona of KM that would be conscious,aware and present but not usually interactive when the "Beloved" is present. It can also be that KM could have been elsewhere through the bilocation of his consciousness such as a Temple or another Plane and be having seperate perceptions and interactions with others on other planes or planets etc. while the Beloved" is active using his physical apparatus. This was what was happening in the case I mentioned that I was involved in many years 
ago. The "One" discoursed and the other later upon awaking described at length where he was, what he saw, who he sat with and chatted, what they said ect and all the time the "Other" was discoursing to a seated assembly of Hearers. Actually this is all in the Book I posted here a while back and a great deal more. 

While you may have conducted a study of KM, I usually relate from my experience that was a direct happening. We can only proceed as our nature leads us. The idea of a "Mystical Union" is mystical itself and I think people do engage this sphere as we all probably do for whatever reason, but it is only a "via" and a substitute for reality that is. It stands to reason the the Higher Self though without any measure or dimension is the macro to the micro. 

I can agree with AB idea the they were "melding" I have previously discribed this observation in my own direct experience having spent 5 years directly seeing and observing such a case before my own eyes. 

I am not sure what your meaning is when you say "without residue", is it that you mean his persona had no presence at those timmes?

Dear John, 

You stated: "He meant in my personal view the "Agency" that stepped into his animation of form known as Krishna Murti who, when that happened, stepped aside and became the observer like the rest of the people present. " 

This is not an accurate reproduction of the way in which K himself reported his experience of the 'overshadowing. ' For him it was a mystical union with what he called for a while his 'beloved.' AB's interpretation was that K's and Maitreya's consciousness were melding. In other words, K went up, or disolved, into the experience without residue. If there was an observer it was Maitreya as he had the 'larger' consciousness.

I might reply in the context of Hodson's extract. I have a cultured view on the iteration he makes as to KM, the overshadowing of him by another presence that he characterizes as "The World Teacher that is now in our midst". He meant in my personal view the "Agency" that stepped into his animation of form known as Krishna Murti who, when that happened, stepped aside and became the observer like the rest of the people present. I experienced a similar manisfestation in 1976-81 and even later. I also witnessed many people extremely impacted by the given offered words of "The Vessal of Light". I even on several occasions posted some of them here on this forum over the last 10 years. I too witnessed many people enraptured in unremoveable concentration and rapport being moved to the point of tears rolling down their cheeks enmass not just by the words but also by the the unique remarkable rare and powerful energy radiated by the presence itself which performed 
penetration to the inner person. So in remembrance of what I was allowed to participate and receive then I understand that KM did not mean himself but what he became receptacle of. The Agency he meant was beyond his form, intellect and means in my view. I spent years near something just like this, but also quite different in nature and context. The person in my case would never claim he was the Agency that spoke through him, and I doubt Krishna Murti would have either. So one needs to keep the to Natures divided from each other. I coined the expression "Switching Gears" back in 1976-7 to characterize the change of contenance and vocalized voice that was completely different than the normal persons idioms and vocal sounds. The co-habitation in the beginning was marked and definite viz one to the other. Later it became very, very subtle, so much so that one could only know the Agency was present if one had known the everyday person intimately for extended 
period as I had. Others who had not this advantage thought there was only one person present when in fact they both were there, but so subtle discrimination was not part of the new casual observers ability. As Hodson said there was a spiritual influence emanating from KM , so it was also the fact with my direct experiance in this case. It was not scant or diffused energy but it impinged to the point you knew and felt the energy projected to all present. During this case at a certain time , at a certain place and in a state of "projection" and receptivity the "Vessel of Light" said taking his right hand "By this act we are joined for eternity" this established a continued "Rapport" that remained until his physical death on Jan. 20, 2009. In 1999 he said "I do not see my face in the return of the Children---- nontheless-- --- I do awake each day with the voice of " ------" within me." So it is plausible that this circumstance was also established alike in 
the case of Krishna Murti. In no way was it the personality normal in KM 's historical life. Just my personal POV.

Did you read my previous e-mail? 
How can one learn to know one self without being guided and without comparative studying? 
Is it safe to promote a psychological revolution inwardly without a guide? 

J. Krishnamurti said: 
"I know that which I am; I know my purpose in life because I am Life itself without name, without limitation. And because I am Life I would urge you to worship that Life, not in this form that is Krishnamurti but the Life which dwells in each one of you. Put aside all the paraphernalia of beliefs, religions and ceremonies, and you will find the Truth." 
(The seventh International Camp of the Order of the Star 
held at Ommen, Holland, August 6th, 1928) 

http://jiddu- krishnamurti. net/en/1928- let-understandin g-be-the- law/jiddu- krishnamurti- let-understandin g-be-the- law-07.php 


"As I have elsewhere written, I attended several of the Star Camps in Holland and was present when there was evidence of remarkable, if brief, supernormal manifestations. On more than one occasion some two thousand people from many parts of the world were gathered at Ommen to hear Krishnamurti. Each evening, all were seated in concentric circles round a large camp fire. Krishnamurti would arrive, take his place for a time, and then rise and apply a torch to the camp fire. As the flames arose against the evening sky he would chant a mantram to the god Agni, and return to his seat. Thereafter he would begin to speak, and on more than one occasion a noticeable change took place in him. His voice altered and his hitherto rather iconoclastic utterances gave way to a wonderful tenderness of expression and thought which induced in those present an elevation of consciousness. The Talks were followed by prolonged meditative silences. Many of those present, myself 
among them, bore testimony to the sense of divine peace which had descended, to a realization of the Presence of the Lord, and to an assurance that the prophecy had begun to be fulfilled. These phenomena occurred during some few successive years, the events being so marked that Krishnamurti himself there after changed the Objects of the Order of the Star in the East from, in effect, "To prepare for the coming of the Lord" to "To serve the World Teacher now that He is in our midst." I, myself, more than once heard Krishnamurti affirm that the great Teacher was now here and that the "Coming" had actually occurred. Even now when he is speaking, with others I discern a spiritual influence emanating from him, as if a great Being were still using him as a vehicle.This, however, does not constitute a complete fulfillment of the original prophecy."

A Nobody or Guru or Messiah or partly a Messiah? Unimportant to J. Krishnamurti?
