G.I. Gurdjieff, (January 13, 1866 - October 29, 1949), was an Armenian - Greek mystic, a teacher of sacred dances and a Spiritual teacher. His work is called, "The Work," and it is referred to as the fourth way.
I will take some of Gurdjieff's teachings and update them using the Laws of Quantum Physics. This wil be the main thrust of all spiritual writers and teachers for the next 2000 years, (Age of Aquariua.) I can only hope to just give you a kick start so you may do the research and translations yourself. His sayings will be in quotes.
"Seek for a better quality of of being."
Your being is who you really are. During any individual incarnation, the quality of your being will be colored by the choices you make. Seek ye first wisdom and understanding of Cosmic principles and you will make better choices.
"There are two kinds of Fear, instinctive fear which triggers adrenalin and causes you to attack or defend, and Emotional Fear caused by emotional imagination. Undirected imagination exerts an incalculable influence on sleeping (unconscious) humanity."
The Laws of Quantum Physics tell us that thoughts are things. We know that whatever thoughts we continually have will attract out of the Quantum Ocean it's physical reality into our lives.
When you power your thoughts with your emotions, you speed up the process. The world we presently live in is polluted with imaginary desires, billboards, TV's, radio, magazines, and newspapers. They all use imaginary images which are geared to invoke an emotional response within you to have "it."
To become sane in this unsane world you have to get control of your emotional nature and stop responding to every form of emotional stimulus sent to you to provoke your imagination.
The powerful black magicians of Atlantis are all incarnated into the advertising world. They use black magic to induce you to do what they want and buy what they sell. Personal control of your emotions and imagination is your only defense.
"All this work is about making what lies in your being more and more conscious."
Your being attracts your life. You have in your being many energies, ideas, thoughts and abstractions of others. They were put there by Mom, Dad, Teachers, Preachers, Ancestors and past life experiences.
It is your job to weed out from your being all that is detrimental to your spirtual growth. Always keep in mind that your purpose on Earth (which is a school house) is to grow, evolve, to individualize and to become more God-like. All else is secondary.
"You cannot change life which is a recurring cycle of events. But you can change your atitude toward them."
Life is a series of recurring events that pass continously on your screen of life. You cannot stop this stream. But you can pick and choose from which event you will accept and make a part of your being and which events you will reject and just let pass on by.
Your level of being creates your life. Want to change your life! Change your level of Being!
