  1. @Petals Indeed! Seems a very intellectual blog. Given the multitude of Fourth Way and Gurdjieff websites, I'm going to add some more links to websites that have more of the basics of the Gurdjieff Work. For those who have the time and want to research, this will provide a more varied selection. https://www.endlesssearch.co.uk/ http://fourthwayschool.org/ https://ggurdjieff.com/fourth-way/ The three links above are to sites that are more foundational than the links below. https://www.gurdjieff.justwizard.com/index.html http://www.rahul.net/raithel/otfw/fourthway.html http://www.higherbeingbodies.com/ https://www.gurdjieff-bibliography.com/Current/17_moore_ revelation_28mar_2004-07-03.pdf https://gurdjieff.org.gr/ae/index.htm Website dedicated to the study of "The Tales"
  2. Awakening for men not women,,,,,hmm,, that must mean that women are more naturally awake in general than men and so men need awakening more than women? πŸ™‚ Sounds like a probable Trump supporter has come into your life.
  3. Cultural Concensus trance is synonymous with spiritual sleep. The soul is a field of impressionability and also multiperspectival. In spiritual sleep we allegorically live in just one room of a mansion. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ Literal interpretations of myth/scriptures which makes up the fundamentalists world-views and their influence which perpetuate stupidity, violence, and fear. Lost in scientism and Materialism we are separated from our true nature and as old chief Lodgeskins says- modern humans don't know where the center of the earth is and we don't realize we are strange and effectively insane. From the vision of the historical figure Black Elk sometime around 1860- And a Voice said: "All over the universe they have finished a day of happiness." And looking down, I saw that the whole wide circle of the day was beautiful and green, with all fruits growing and all things kind and happy. Then a Voice said: "Behold this day, for it is yours to make. Now you shall stand upon the center of the earth to see, for there they are taking you." I was still on my bay horse, and once more I felt the riders of the west, the north, the east, the south, behind me in formation, as before, and we were going east. I looked ahead and saw the mountains there with rocks and forests on them, and from the mountains flashed all colors upward to the heavens. Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy. Not integrating and individuating into our multiperspectival true nature, we sell ourselves short and perpetuate spiritual sleep. Contemporary humans have unconscious fear and are manipulated by different propagandas -U.S. military industrial complex, pharmaceutical industrial complex, world banks, multinational corporations. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈJust having fun throwing it out there. Salt as desired,,, πŸ™‚
  4. Mostly or loosely or maybe or somewhat. πŸ™‚ Depends on who's doing the shoveling? πŸ™‚
  5. Maybe it's necessary to express in a negative way in order to make certain points. I don't know,,,,, If you have a friend that gets on your nerves at times because they talk too much, do you ever mention this too them? It depends on many different factors this point, I guess,,,
  6. "Psilocybin mushrooms make nicer people" Paul Stamets says near the end of the interview. Good discussion here touching on how therapists are now being trained implementing psychedelics to break opioid addiction in people. New paradigm unfolding now it seems with the stories of success from the underground psychedelic therapy pioneers. They're moving quickly into the mainstream with Canada, Mexico, and Portugal providing supportive environments with their relaxed drug laws. Paul Stamets recommends 2 new movies concerning mushrooms Fantastic Fungi Dosed
  7. Gollum stays in Narrative consciousness all the time. There's an alternative to being an unguided Gollum, I remind myself. Beginning with self observation which is free of inner criticism. On the path we can either heal or create. From ACIM - Heal outside the Kingdom. Create within the Kingdom.
  8. πŸ™‚ That works for me. I'm curious if she also equates natural awareness with presence? Or if she says,,,
  9. I love the heart ❀️ energy in this. Hadn't watched in years. Willie Nelson looks almost young in this. πŸ™‚πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ
  10. Spontaneity is a part of the mix and a pointer towards an understanding of the scope and nature of phenomenology could you say? An Awakened spotenaity is the transformation of conditioned reactiveness. No? Reply with a subtle statement or a bold statement. A declaration, assertion, or question? Maybe a song?
  11. Chickens cooped up will pick at one another more than free reange birds. In the big commercial chicken houses, I've observed it in the brief amount of time that I've spent around them. Growing up, a percentage of my friends belonged to families that were held hostage by a mortgage against their farm and the promises of riches in the poultry business. In the commercial houses it appeared like scapegoating would take place in the 'chicken community'. Weakened birds would eventually be pecked to death by the others. No escape! I've seen cattle do it as well. While putting out hay in the winter, I would observe how the weakest ones of the herd were always being "T-boned' by the healthy animals. Chickens are worse with their brutality though, I believe. You could call some of them aggravated chicken peckers in how they would gang up on the weak ones. The more damaged the scapegoated chickens became, the more attention they seemed to attract from the aggravated chicken peckers. Horses and goats pigs aren't exempt from forms of this behavior either. People are like this too, it seems. They sometimes behave as the human equivalent of an aggravated chicken pecker. It's an automatic or mechanical behavior. Unconscious behavior in humans. Observing schadenfreude in oneself and waking up is required. Waking up has to be an inside job. Ocke de Boer phrased it as people acting like unguided projectiles. Until the emotional center gets purified, we may periodically behave as unguided projectiles or unguided Golems' riding on the wild pendulum of emotions. The Intellectual emotional complex has to be balanced and worked on through getting grounded in the belly center. That's part of the recipe for fulasnitamnian awareness or three centered awareness. Watching an old episode of Joe Rogan with Graham Hancock. They got on the subject of people acting shitty on the internet for no good reason at all at about 48 minutes in. This reminded me of how people often feed unconsciously on negativity,,,, I just discovered that Joe Rogan is cool about ten years after the fact. The same way I 'discovered' Nirvana as well as the Red Hot Chili Peppers were good bands. The YouTube Precogs are sending me these old podcasts to watch.
  12. Maybe Gnosticism?
  13. πŸ€”πŸ€” πŸ€”
  14. Below is taken from the classic -The Master Game. Robert DeRopp is describing here some common traps on the path that we fall into. I enjoyed his Biographical account in Warriors Way as much, if not more. He was a student of Ouspensky.lived a very interesting life. By profession he was a biologist. Either one of these books make for a good alarm clock.
