Regards dear. The direction towards transformation is indicated by means of parables, which are the only way of pointing towards something that is invisible to the senses by means of words belonging to the world of the senses we live in. He is dominated by external life and has no life in himself.
The fact that the gospels are difficult to understand is not only because they have many different, metaphorical levels and most people understand them as literal stories of what actually happened, but also because of inadequate translation from the Greek.
If Gnosticism is taken to be the esoteric branch of Christianity, then these wonderful books by Dr. Nicoll make it abundantly clear that he is a Gnostic. Both of Dr. As such the books belong to any ancient or modern traditions in which Man is regarded psychologically as an undeveloped seed, capable of an inner evolution to a higher or deeper understanding.
Nicoll extracts from the gospels a path for the psychological evolution and transformation of Man that is truly religious by not belonging to any religion, and hence can be said to be universal.
Hulme gives a lively account of their relationship with each other and to Gurdjieff, the unconventional guide who lead them into an "undiscovered country" of self-observation. Kathryn Hulme writes about her intention to her literary agent: She certainly succeeds in bringing Gurdjieff and his teaching to life for the people of the present age. The book is about an absolutely unknown Indian mystic, Shivpuri Baba.
Shivpuri Baba was certainly one of the rarest flowerings, particularly in India where so many idiots are pretending to be mahatmas.
To find a man like Shivpuri Baba in India is really either luck or else a tremendous work of research. There are five hundred thousand mahatmas in India; that is the actual number.
To find a real man among this crowd is almost impossible. But Bennett was fortunate in many ways. He was also the first man to discover Gurdjieff.
Nobody thanks poor Bennett for it, and there is a reason. It is because he was a wavering kind of person. Bennett never betrayed Gurdjieff while he was alive.
He did not dare. Those eyes were too much. Bennett was a wavering man. He could not waver and betray like Ouspensky, but when Gurdjieff died, then he betrayed.
He started looking for another master. What a misfortune! I mean misfortune for Bennett. It was good for others, because that was how he came to find Shivpuri Baba. But Shivpuri Baba, howsoever great, is nothing compared to Gurdjieff.
I cannot believe it of Bennett. And he was a scientist, a mathematician The scientist has almost always behaved foolishly outside his own specific field. The culmination of science will be knowing everything about nothing, and the culmination of religion will be knowing all - not knowing about all, simply knowing; not about, just knowing. Science will end in ignorance; religion will end in enlightenment. All the scientists, even the great ones, have proved foolish in many ways outside their specific?
They behave childishly. Bennett was a scientist and mathematician of a certain standing, but he wavered, he missed. He started looking for another master again. And it is not that he remained with Shivpuri either; Shivpuri Baba was a very old man when Bennett met him.
He was almost one hundred and ten years old. He was really made of steel. He lived for almost one and a half centuries. He was seven feet tall and one hundred and fifty years old and still there was no sign that he was going to die. He decided to leave the body - it was his decision. Shivpuri was a silent man, he did not teach. Particularly a man who had known Gurdjieff and his tremendous teaching would find it very ordinary to be with Shivpuri Baba.
Bennett wrote his book and started searching again for a master. Shivpuri Baba was not even dead yet. Subud is a short form of Sushil-Buddha-Dharma; it is just the first letter of these three words. What foolishness!
Bennett started introducing Mohammed Subud, a very good man, but not a master Bennett brought Mohammed Subud to the West, and started introducing him as the successor to Gurdjieff. Now this is utter stupidity! But Bennett writes beautifully, mathematically, systematically.
His best book is Shivpuri Baba. Although Bennett was a fool, even if you allow a monkey to sit at a typewriter once in a while he may come upon something beautiful - perhaps a statement which only a buddha could make - just by knocking the typewriter keys here and there. But he will not understand what he has written. Bennett continued in this way. Soon he became disillusioned with Mohammed Subud and started searching for yet another master.
Poor fellow, his whole life he was searching and searching unnecessarily. He had already found the right man in Gurdjieff. He has written about Gurdjieff, and what he says is beautiful, efficient, but his heart is dark, there is no light in it. Still, I count his Shivpuri Baba book as one of the best. Gurdjieff wanted his books to be read in the above order: Gurdjieff was known for making a distinction between objective and subjective art. Osho comments on objective and subjective art.
Before he was one of the chief devils of the Old Testament, identified with either Satan or his right-hand man, Beelzebub was Baal-zebub, in Hebrew meaning Lord of the Flies - for baal simply means lord. But in Ugaritic, Baal-zebul means Lord of High Places, and with this in mind Beelzebub is thought by many scholars to be a pejorative of the original name for a god of the sky.
That is, he had power over the flies of sickness and could command them to withdraw. I have come across many Gurdjieff followers, but none of them had been able to read All and Everything in its totality. It is a big book - just the opposite of the Isa Upanishad - one thousand pages. And Gurdjieff is such a rascal saint He writes in such a way that it becomes impossible to read.
One sentence may go running on for pages. By the time you come to the end of the sentence, you have forgotten its beginning.
And he uses words he made up himself, just like me. Strange words This book is of immense value, but the diamonds are hidden among ordinary stones.
One has to seek and search. I have read this book not once, but many times. The more I went into it, the more I loved it, because the more I could see the rascal; the more I could see what it was that he was hiding from those who should not know. Knowledge is not for those who are not yet capable of absorbing it. Knowledge has to be hidden from the unwary, and it is only for those who can digest it.
It has to be given only to those who are ready. Gurdjieff traveled all over the world, particularly in the Middle East and India. He went up to Tibet; not only that, he was the teacher of the late Dalai Lama.
Not the present one - he is a fool - but the previous one. He is none other than George Gurdjieff. Because this fact was known to the British government - that Gurdjieff had been in Tibet for many years; not only there, but had been living in the palace at Lhasa for many years - they prevented him for staying in England.
He originally wanted to stay in England but was not allowed. Gurdjieff wrote this book, Meetings with Remarkable Men as a memoir. It is a tremendously respectful memory to all those strange companions he had met in his life Sufis, Indian mystics, Tibetan lamas, Japanese Zen monks I must mention to you that he did not write of them all. He left many out of the account for the simple reason that the book was going to be in the marketplace, and it had to fulfill the demands of the market.
I am not a man who worries at all about the market, hence I can say that he left out the really most remarkably significant people from his account. But whatever he wrote is still beautiful. It still brings tears to my eyes. Whenever something is beautiful my eyes fill with tears, there is no other way to pay homage. This is a book that should be studied, not just read. It can not be translated as study either, because study is a concentrated effort to understand the meaning of the word, or words.
Path is neither reading nor study, but something more It is not a fiction like Don Juan - a fictitious man created by an American fellow, Carlos Castaneda. This man has done a great disservice to humanity. One should not write spiritual fictions for the simple reason that people start thinking that spirituality is nothing but a fiction.
