- U.G.Krishnamurti being interviewed( a small part)
Q: But we can never be absolutely sure that there is not some
way out, no matter how fantastic or improbable it may be ...
U.G.: As long as there is that hope that you can somehow or
the other get out of the jungle, so long will you continue
what you are doing-- searching--and so long you feel lost.
You are lost only because you are searching. You have no way
of finding your way out of the jungle.
Q: So if one could just stop....
U.G.: No, that's not it at all. You still expect something to
happen. That expectation is part of the problem. That is why
you are pursuing these questions. Your expectations are part

The Inner Directions gathering is being held February 15-17.
Great speakers and atmosphere. It's right across from the
beach in La Jolla, California. They do a beautiful job in
organizing and presenting the gathering. I really enjoyed it.

don't even have to be signed-up for the Inner Directions
gathering to be a part of it. Basically it's a few of us
getting together. Last year was great, with cee, Jody, Igor,
Thomas and Diane Murphy, Christiana, Chuck Hillig and his
cool friends from Ojai, Christiana, and of course myself
hogging all the food.
Hopefully those guys will try to make it this year and others
will as well. Hoping Diana and Metta Zetty will join us.
Metta is a featured speaker this year. Let me know if you're
interested in the Saturday night NDS gathering, so we have an
idea of how many. If you're in southern California, stop by!
It's NDS at its best.

To summarize, there is the Inner directions gathering which
costs like $275 or something. It's worth every cent. And
there's the Saturday night NDS bash, which costs nothing

someone's cottage. We'll let you know.
