Shocks...





 A good shock makes energy quickly. But shocks can be of three kinds; somebody else can give it to you, or you can give it to yourself or it may come accidentally. Nothing else can create energy quickly. A good shock can make you remember yourself and remember the shock. It may be so good that you will be unable to forget it for some time. That will make you more emotional and the emotional center will produce energy.

Practicing Dying...



Death's greatest advantage over us is that we do not know 
where he awaits us, we can take away some of his advantage
by awaiting him everywhere. Practicing dying frees us from 
the slavery of this life.

“A man who wants to awaken must look for other people who also want to awake, and work together with them. The work of self-study can proceed only in properly organized groups. One man alone cannot see himself. But when a certain number of people unite together for this purpose they will even involuntarily help one another.”
— G. I. Gurdjieff —

Eternal Perspective...




At the moment of death the mind and all its delusions die, and in that void 
arrives the boundless nature of the soul and its eternal perspective.

Unprepared...



People die as unprepared for death as they are unprepared for life. They serve 
only the great machinery of nature and not the desires or wishes of the Gods.

Patience...



We live in an era of very fast communication and want instant solutions to our problems. But sometimes this process of acceptance takes a while, so we embrace patience if we can, moving on in our lives, being present and allowing space and time for the understanding to come which enables us to accept that which is "hard to swallow".
