Quotes

“Without self knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave”.
G.I. Gurdjieff

“Let us take some event in the life of humanity. For instance, war. There is a war going on at the present moment. What does it signify? It signifies that several millions of sleeping people are trying to destroy several millions of other sleeping people. They would not do this, of course, if they were to wake up. Everything that takes place is owing to this sleep”.
G.I. Gurdjieff

“Without the man Earth can not receive energy from the highest level. So if some people work consciously they contribute to the descense of that energy. Otherwise there is discord on Earth. One can feel it”.
Jeanne de Salzmann

“The waves, the movement and the energy are the same thing. And yet the wave is the motion not energy itself. What it is important is to understand the energy itself, the pure energy”.
Jeanne de Salzmann

“Life is bigger than all the limitations we tend to put on it, and you need to be in an ongoing romance with life, otherwise it is easy to get buried by your own peculiar circumstances. It’s easy to become an automaton who gets up, works hard, even does spiritual practices, but all merely as a mechanical habit. You can easily get the idea that your spiritual work, or whatever you are doing, is all-important and that you must give your life to it, while at the same time you forget what “giving your life to it” actually means. Then you can become even more mechanical than you already are (if such a thing is conceivable), but in a different form”.
Lee Lozowick

“You cannot live sheltered forever without being exposed, and at the same time be a spiritual adventurer. Be audacious. Be crazy in your own way, with that madness in the eyes of man that is wisdom in the eyes of God. Take risks, search and search again, search everywhere, in every way, do not let a single opportunity or chance that life offers pass you by, and do not be petty and mean, trying to drive a hard bargain”.
Arnaud Desjardins

“Terrible or not, difficult or not, the only thing that is beautiful, noble, religious, and mystical is to be happy”.
Arnaud Desjardins
