If there wasn't great value in the search itself, we would have been born with full knowledge.

I try not to fantasize, love, worship or agonize over the goal. The goal is simply there to create the search. Often times it seems like people reverse the importance of these 2 things.

Why does my denial cause you to use an exclamation mark? Are you trying to explain something by yelling at me?

If you are too keen on the search then you will not be looking to find.
The mind might not allow you to find because it may be too simple.
Aware is what you are..... merely witnessing whatever appears........ seeing all the machinery do it's dance.
It can be known and then as it says in the talk in the OP you are then not of the machine as you watch the play.

Wow, the author certainly loves religion, favoring one of the branches of abraham. It almost appears they are trying to marry Gs work directly to religion.

I guess if the point of self discovery is pain and negative emotions, this literature has given me a great wealth to contemplate my own failures of remaining objective.

weird.



I've never studied Mouravieff but a pupil of Gurdjieff (and Ouspensky) named Maurice Nicoll wrote extensively on the Work as esoteric Christianity.

Nicoll's Pyschological Commentaries

There are a ton of secondary and tertiary materials from Gurdjieff's pupils. The problem with many of them is that they take only a portion of the teaching and focus on just that. If you desire a full picture I recommend going to the source and, moreover, the original Tales - not the 1993 revised edition.

I was emphasising that awareness is denied.... not sure why it was perceived as a yell.....you had denied that you are aware.
All you are is aware - I would put an exclamation mark but you might take it the wrong way lol.
