Ok, ready to go. Welcome, to the Orphans of Civilization

The purpose of this blog is assist those floundering in the so-called Gurdjieff work to recover their perspective on the confusion it has created, and to ‘snap out of it’ to the degree of recovering and hopefully moving on. However, this is done by a process of historical analysis, and I am not in a position for one on one interactions. But if you have a question, by all means. There is very little public help available here, and the ‘deprogrammers’ in the public sphere are ill-equiped to understand the position many find themselves in. And certainly the people in the movement are of no help. You need the presence of mind to walk away from it, and it can be a lonely moment to realize that you have no institutional resources that can be useful.

Welcome, to the Orphans of Civilization.

This blog will saunder on with comments, links, and various forms of commentary. Please note that the main point is made if you read the gmancon series. I am busy with a lot of other things, so this blog with be off to a slow start perhaps. Keep coming back if you like.

  1. “There are really only two ‘ways’ or paths, that in time and that moving beyond time. Buddhism shows an instance of the latter, while the former is a purely logical deduction from the nature of the case, one that a Buddhist would find samsarically spurious. We see no exemplars. And yet, we do. The great monotheisms proceed by default to exclude the path in time by usurping its place, no doubt because it is beyond the capacity of man as he is, who is an instant screw up in need of redemption.”

    What is the difference between the path moving in time and that moving beyond time? Is the path moving beyond time is that of withdrawal from ordinary life, seclusion and renouncement of the world in favor of spiritual development whereas the path in time is the attempt to do the same thing while immersed in ordinary life, without changing the external, natural conditions of the individual?
