  1. Nice post thanks for sharing, very interesting insight.


    I liked the part about knowledge without self control is useless.

    A lot of these "gurus" in my opinion are just repeating what is written in the Bible.

    I am a huge believer in Proverbs and Psalms as a great book of wisdom.

    You got it backwards pal. the bible is repeating the Vedas and other texts preceding it. Read "The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors"

    No, he's not unknown, just not known by that many in the west. Most mental health professionals know of him. Dr. Steenbarger has written about him and there is one person that posts here under the handle Gurdjieff.

    "In Search of the Miraculous" is a great book.

    Ouspensky also wrote "Tertium Organum" which is a great book as well.

    Blavatsky, Vivekananda, Sivananda, M.P. Hall, S.A. Weor, etc., are all "mystical" writers/ philosophers not understood, misunderstood, or intentionally (unconsciously) ignored by the masses.

    Gurdjieff sums it up well by saying we are all asleep, to varying degrees of course.
