La Quarta Via

First of all, anyone who is in the daunting position of repressing thoughts knows that it is harder to ignore those thoughts than dealing with them. Anyone out there that’s read several and would consider themselves knowledgeable care to chime in?

His book In Search of the Miraculous is a recounting of what he learned from Gurdjieff during those years. Steve Maccharoli rated it liked it Jul 17, Paperbackpages.

The Fourth Way by P.D. Ouspensky

More poetry than a dozen poetry volumes will contain. There is debate regarding the ability to use Gurdjieff’s ideas through groups.

Rob rated it liked it Feb 18, Why is it necessary to form your own groups and charge individuals money to sit around and listen to your philosophy, not to mention that someone actually takes charge over these groups formed under this philosophy? I literally thought to myself “he probably abandoned the system” before having read it, because there’s no way anyone could rationally live with such absurd beliefs.

In contrast, some former Gurdjieffians joined other movements, [26] [27] and there are a number of offshoots, and syntheses incorporating elements of the Fourth Way, such as:.

Just as Quart Organum deals with a new mode of thinking, so The Fourth Way is concerned with a new way of living. I realize that a lot of my criticisms don’t just fall on Ouspensky, but Gurdjieff for postulating them. Gurdjieff emphasized that awakening results from consistent, prolonged effort.

Fourth Way

We are also unable to remember a total self that is congruent with all sides of ourselves. This is nuts, yeah. It emphasizes that people ordinarily live in a state referred to as a semi-hypnotic “waking sleep,” while higher levels of consciousness, virtue, unity of will are possible. The problem is that Ouspensky hides behind words and fails to explore his ideas any further than what he wants to focus on.


He shared the Gurdjieff “system” for 25 years in England and the United States, having separated from Gurdjieff in personally, for reasons he explains in the last chapter of his book In Search of the Miraculous. Such efforts may be made as an act quarga will after one is already exhausted.

If we were always controlled in our thinking it would be impossible to filter out certain information and would result in information overload. The Ouspnesky Way is an approach to self-development described by George Gurdjieff which he developed over years of travel in the East c. Ouspensky in his lectures and writings. He just uospensky the assumption that people will believe whatever he says and that they should learn how to practice it on their own.

Gurdjieff classified plants as having one center, animals two and humans three. What I learned was that there is no “I” but many “I”s ouspnsky of competing for supremacy,that there is such a thing as spiritual mechanics. Well to be precise, you remember nothing when it happens, but you just feel being a whole and remembering not what you did not remember but remembering you just wasn’t remembering before remembering.

The Fourth Way does involve certain conditions imposed by a teacher, but blind acceptance of them is discouraged.

I am still interested in reading Gurdjieff’s own work but be aware that oupsensky is not an easy read and for me simply very boring! And you will read the book by its words without quartq the knowledge what to expect. He was associated with the ideas and practices originating with Gurdjieff from then on.

Some, including his close pupil Rodney Collin, say that ouspdnsky finally gave up the system injust before his death, but his own recorded words on the subject “A Record of Meetings”, published posthumously do not clearly endorse this judgement, nor ouwpensky Ouspensky’s emphasis on “you must make a new beginning” after confessing “I’ve left the system”.


Shouldn’t simplifying your life take up less than or so pages? They never exist by themselves as schools for the quartx of education and instruction.

I probably wouldn’t be so bothered by the system if it was actually clear on what the terminology means and how it should be practiced.

Gurdjieff himself seemed to have formed this impression some ten years before his death, which led him to divert his efforts away from the Institute and into writing.

It is making people work toward something that isn’t even a sure thing. This inner development in oneself is the beginning of a possible further process of change, whose aim is to transform man into “what he ought to be.

Best Intro book on Gurdjieff? The Fourth Way addresses the question of humanity’s place in the Universe and the possibilities of inner development. A person must free the soul by following a teaching which can lead to this aim or “go nowhere” upon death of his body. Every teacher, or guru, is a specialist in some one thing. Later, Gurdjieff relaxed this rule, accepting students who subsequently published accounts of their experiences in the Gurdjieff work.
