RANSFORMATION other than the exact nature of the Boson particle is there a key topicSome great thoughts are a start But it seems impossible to move past esoteric cult without internal derivation of concepts and external links to parallel work Multiple identities clearly maps to splitting I apologize I am sure this is above Friedman s pay grade The ideas are remarkable I hope that effective integration and incorporation emerges When I grew up my parents would occasionally go to Gurdjieff group meetings We weren t a religious family so that was closest we came Although I Hanging Out was hanging out the kids rather than participating I always wondered what was going on and meant to read about the concept somewhere down the line I decided to finally check it out and this seemed like an approachable guideTo put the entire idea into a few sentences it would be something like this We have control over our emotions and being The Wikipedia article says it abstractly Gurdjieff claimed that people cannot perceive reality in their current states because they do not possess consciousness but rather live in a state of a hypnotic waking sleep It reminded me a lot of the This is Water Essay Which Focuses essay which focuses a similar idea This very introductory guide surely only touches on the basics but many of the principles I could see influencing my parents and my development growing up as wellAlthough the book is a good introduction to The Work it only touches skin deep Simple and readable introduction to the WorkI thorough enjoyed the content of course and very readable style of this book I have read a couple of other books on the Work and how to startapply it and would recommend this book widely for beginners to get a good and simple intr.

Excellent but challenging introduction to the work of Gurdjieff and teaching of Ospensky If you have an interest in understandingand improving self This is a great place to beginThis is an excellent introduction into the work of Gurdjieff and the teaching Of Ouspensky If You Have Had Any Ouspensky If you have had any into the study and improvement of your inner self this is a great book in which to start your ourney this is a great book in which to start your ourney concise and brilliantly easy to read UsefulPractical information and as far as I can tell thorough I will be referring to this book on freuent occasions I thought it s going to be a bit of a reverie on good old Gurdjieff but I doubt how accurate to the original it really is I suppose it s an introduction and maybe I m reading Gurdjieff wrong but I liked it that it s very underdetermined and there is a lot of mysticism in the reading itself and I have to fill the blankets This book here feels like 7 Habits by Steve Covey and is a bit dull albeit it touches on most concepts How we think about the things that occur in our lives is our decision Simplistically Gurdjieff like many others before him suggests that we can choose how to interpret different events in our lives and by doing so change our own lives For example if the sewer backs up and wrecks the carpet you can moan and groan and cry Why me OR you can see it as a definitive reason to get rid of the old carpet that you hated anyway and start looking for new flooring One way makes you a victim the other makes you a winner Which do you want to be It IS your choice Good for what it was a superficial introduction familiarization of Gurdjieff 5123Brilliance of the ideas5Organization of the thinking1How can we think and and productively discuss transformation Friedman's book has translated Gurdjieff into ordinary understandable English I would highly recommend this book as a place to start I have than 50 books on Gurdjieff's and Ouspensky's Work on my shelves but this is no doubt the most practical one for beginners Couldn't Put it Down Gil Friedman has done the near impossible rendered Gurdjieff's esoteric philosophy eminently readable.
