Dear Friends,
This past September, the Link team and I met for a week’s retreat at Haus Sonne, thefriendly vegetarian guest house in the Black Forest (see pg. 55). We wanted to look again atour activities, our reasons for being engaged in them and for working with each other, andalso to reassess the ways in which we explain to others what we are trying to do. My par-ticular question was ‘What will hold us together?’, and I am happy to say that the answerthat arose during the course of the week was, simply, friendship and an interest inthefundamental questions of human existence. In addition to long talks, both serious andamusing, and long walks in the beautiful countryside, we produced the statement on theback page describing the various activities that remain the overt consequence of ourworking together.I would like to add in relation to this two excerpts from K. The first was spoken by him atthe International Trustees Meeting at Brockwood Park in September 1984.“What is our responsibility? I think our responsibility towards the world will dependa great deal on what is our responsibility to the schools, to our own lives and ourresponsibility to each other. If we do not trust each other – I mean, I am using – K isusing that word ‘trust’in the deepest sense of the word which is friendship, co-oper-ation and feeling that we are all together, that trust will hold us together. If that isnot there, if that friendship and trust is not there it will break up.”The second is from the 3rd Question and Answer Meeting in Saanen in 1980 (which I alsoincluded in the Preface to my booklet
The Beauty of the Mountain
 ).“Question: I have understood the things we have talked over during these meetings,even if only intellectually. I feel they are true in a deep sense. Now, when I go backto my country, shall I talk about your teachings with friends? Or, since I am still afragmented human being, will I only produce more confusion and mischief by talkingabout them?”“Krishnamurti: All the religious preachings of the priests, the gurus, are promul-gated by fragmented human beings. Though they say, ‘We are high up’, they are stillfragmented human beings. And the questioner says: ‘I have understood what youhave said somewhat, partially, not completely; I am not a transformed human being.Iunderstand, and I want to tell others what I have understood. I do not say I haveunderstood the whole, I have understood a part. I know it is fragmented, I know itisnot complete, I am not interpreting the teachings, I am just informing you what
