Description

The resulting picture of Gurdjieff is of a man obviously possessing immense wisdom and personal power, capable at once of painfully stripping away the pupil’s “mask” while carefully guiding him through the emotional and bodily experiences necessary for the process of deep learning.

Heather Zydek has done a remarkable job of exploring complex relationships and at the same time introducing Orthodox Christianity.

Set against World War I and the coming of the bolsheviks this book reads as a wonderful tale of history in turmoil and intense personal discovery.

That is, they like to imagine they've contacted the "real" inner work--as opposed to those fools who imagine any other traditions can lead to awakening. The biggest difference is that Gurdjieff left behind a legacy of fraudulent teachers and cults, whereas there are many Buddhist and other groups that are reliable. What we think of as an individual choice oftentimes really is just us acting (or, to be more precise, reacting) according to the impulses that are ingrained in us and to external forces.

In this book he tells us how he met his teacher (who was simply a seeker who had heard multiple theories and studied with several teachers in the East) and how he became his disciple. The food man eats, the air he breathes, and the impressions he experiences are intimately interconnected as forms by which energies are accepted into the organism and assimilated or rejected.
