    1. Because of a friend, and because of the work of Jacob Needleman, I ve become interested in the GurdIjieff work, which was one of the new religions of the 20th century I really think these folks just discover the old truths and then try to re invent the wheel, when they could easily just go back to the existing traditions Gurdjieff as far as I can tell was just trying to teach presence, and he could have done what the Zen teachers did and just have people sit and stare at the wall Jeanne de Salzm [...]

    2. This is Reality this is by far the best book gurdijeff i have ever read no doubt it was by his secretary.Find out who you are find out who i am is there is something gentile and profound about this bookfor 4 weeks i held unto it carefully exploring each sentence like a labyrinth it was mind blowing to say the least and i have read a LOT of books on gurdijeff next to the fourth way and the man himself this is a highly recommended book

    3. An entirely decent companion to Gurdjieff s writings My only complaint is that De Salzmann is, at times, slightly less interesting to read than Gurdjieff himself I found myself picking up his writings at times instead of paying attention to reading hers.

    4. This reminds me allot of krishnamurti s works I guess all swami talk sounds the same Absolve ego, ascend self,stop thinking, repeat lol All jokes aside it was an ok book, repetitive but ok.

    5. I m giving this book three stars I was hoping for from this book, probably due to the write ups and recommendations mainly by Foundation followers and Fourth Wayers I really wanted to enjoy the book, and took time reading it As others have commented, it is a hard slog to get though Mainly because it is composed of the author s personal diary entries, and in no particular plan or aim The book is largely impractical again to my disappointment , and in some parts drones on about one s inability to [...]

    6. The only reason I read this book is because I am trying to understand Pamela L Travers s life time fascination with the Gurdjieff s teachings It took me forever to finish this book written by Gurdjieff s most fervent student and follower Jeanne de Salzmann.There was nothing enjoyable about the book Do not waste time reading it.Although, I now have an idea about what might have motivated Pamela L Travers to join the ranks of Gurdjieff s followers but that I will explore in a future post on the ma [...]

    7. I read this rather slowly It has a framework which presents the information in many various parts or segments of a system It gives several exercises, one of which was quite revealing for me Train the attention to notice sensation I will now go back and reread a reading per week Interesting guidance.

    8. An reviewer said that Eckhart Tolle s The Power of Now is a good primer This is the the advanced course I m definitely interested in reading this book.
