scientist David Bohm criticizes the current effort of quantum
theorists to achieve a grand unification theory because he believes
the pursuit of the ultimate particle, the ultimate quantum, or
the ultimate force, makes a fundamental error -- it assumes that
the universe is made up of parts. By pursuing nature as if she
were made up of parts, scientists have found parts. Bohm thinks,
however, that no ultimate part will be discovered, only more
and more parts -- parts which will keep elusively dissolving
into themselves." ~ Eugene
Wigner Steps Toward A Quantum
"There is an old
Russian saying: 'A hunchback can be straightened only in the
tomb.' Just so, a man must die to become changed! (You must be
born again.)" The last thing a man is willing to give up
is his suffering." "Only conscious suffering is of
value.""Man must at all times mathematically hear,
mathematically understand, mathematically answer. Only this is
life." "Man in the normal state, natural to him, is
taken as a duality. He consists entirely of dualities or 'pairs
of opposites'. All man's sensations, impressions, feelings, thoughts,
are divided into positive and negative, useful and harmful, necessary
and unnecessary, good and bad, pleasant and unpleasant. Any man
who observes himself, however little, can see this duality in
himself."Gurdjieff said: "I cannot develop you; I can
create conditions in which you can develop yourself." G.I.Gurdjieff

IN THE PLANET OF THE APES
1. Start with a cage containing
five apes. In the cage, hang a banana on a string and put stairs
under it. Before long, an ape will go to the stairs and start
to climb towards the Banana.
2. As soon as he touches
the stairs, spray all of the apes with cold water. After a while,
another ape makes an attempt with the same result--all the apes
are sprayed with cold water.
3. Turn off the cold water.
If, later, another ape tries to climb the stairs, the other apes
will try to prevent it even though no water sprays them.
4. Now, remove one ape
from the cage and replace it with a new one. The New ape sees
the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his horror, all
of the other apes attack him. After another attempt and attack,
he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted.
5. Next, remove another
of the original five apes and replace it with a New one. The
newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous Newcomer
takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm.
6. Again, replace a third
original ape with a new one.The new one makes it to the stairs
and is attacked as well.Two of the four apes that beat him have
no idea why theywere not permitted to climb the stairs, or why
they are participating in the beating of the newest ape.
7. After replacing the
fourth and fifth original apes, all the apes which have been
sprayed with cold water have been replaced. Nevertheless, no
ape ever again approaches the stairs.

way it's always been done around here."

is no way to demonstrate permanet or lasting supply for anyone,
because regardless of how much money a person may get, it is
not supply. Even the largest amount of money may dwindle. But
if we can bring a consciousness of supply to an individual, then
he will never lack." ~
Joel Goldsmith (Living Between Two Worlds) 1892-1964
"There is only one
real reason why anyone has ever entered the spiritual path, and
that is that he may be fulfilled, filled full of the Spirit of
God. 'In thy presence is fulness of joy.' Fullness! Could we
have fullness of joy without health, abundance, good relationships,
home? How could we be full of joy? But when we are fulfilled,
we discover that we are not fulfilled so that we may be happy,
healthy or prosperous. The reason we have been fulfilled is that
we may share it. Anyone who has felt the Spirit of God upon him
or been ordained of the Spirit has found his own fulfillment."

Between Two Worlds) 1892-1964

"The remarkable thing
about growing into higher consciousness is that it is only the

"Nothing could persude
me that "in the image of God" applied only to man.
In fact it seemed to me that the high mountains, the rivers,
lakes, trees, flowers, and animals far better exemplified the
essence of God than men with their ridiculous clothes, their
meanness, vanity, mendacity, and abhorrent egotism." ~ Carl Jung (1875-1961) Memories,
"The whole force
of the argument of which I have availed myself to establish the
existence of God consists in this, that I perceive I could not
possibly be of such a nature as I am, and yet have in my mind
the idea of a God, if God did not really exist." ~ René Descartes (1596-1650)

"In each of us exists
another being that we dont know. They speak to us through our
dreams and let us know that they see us far different from who
we believe to be. Thus, when we find ourselves in a difficult
situation or with a problem that can not be solved, this other,
stranger, can sometimes enlighten us more truly than any other
about how to modify the attitude that caused us the difficulty." ~ C.G. Jung
"Religion alive confronts
the individual with the most momentous option this world can
present. It calls the soul to the highest adventure it can undertake,
a proposed journey across the jungles, peaks, and deserts of
the human spirit. The call is to confront reality, to master
the self. Those who dare to hear and follow this secret call,
soon learn the dangers and difficulties of its lonely journey."
~ The Religions of
Of Self Discovery continues.....
"The ideal relationship
between the instructor and the instructed, it seems to me, is
a blending of the attitudes of West and East. the instructor
must admit the free will of the instructed, and the pupil's right
at all times to act according to his highest spiritual insight;
but, at the same time, if the pupil is unwilling to abide exactly
by the teacher's instruction, the teacher cannot be considered
responsible for any consequent ill effects. Therefore, both teacher
and pupil should begin their work together with this tacit understanding
and the recognition of the right of either at any time to withdraw
freely and with good will, from the relationship. I believe the
teacher is 'karmically' responsible for all he gives which the
pupil accepts; and that the pupil, in his turn, must be deeply
aware of how the teacher is voluntarily jeoparadizing his own
spiritual welfare in the dangerous task of striving to give guidance
to another." ~

"Arise! Awaken! Approach
the feet of the master and know THAT. Like the sharp edge of
a razor, the sages say, is the path. Narrow it is, and difficult
intangible, undying, tasteless, orderless, without beginning,
without end, eternal, immutable, beyond nature, is the Self.
Knowing him as such, one is freed from death." ~ Upanishads
"He who knows nothing,
loves nothing. He who can do nothing understands nothing. He
who understands nothing is worthless. But he who understands
also loves, notices, sees.... the more knowledge is inherent
in a thing, the greater the love.... Anyone who imagines that
all fruits ripen at the same time as the strawberries knows nothing
about grapes." ~
The Fruit continues.....
is very important for a man who works on himself to understand
that change can take place in him only if he changes his attitude
to the outside world. In general you don't know what must be
loved and what must not be loved, because all that is relative.
With you, one and the same thing is loved and not loved; but
there are objective things which we must love or must not love.
Therefore it is more productive and practical to forget about
what you call good and bad and begin to act only when you have
learned to choose for yourself." ~ G.I. Gurdjieff (Views From The Real World: Early
Talks Of Gurdjieff)
"I care not what
terms you may use, be it Kindly Light, Providence, the Over-Soul,
Omnipotence, or whatever term may be most convenient, so long
as we are agreed in regard to the great central fact itself.
God then fills the universe alone, so that all is from Him and
in Him, and there is nothing that is outside." ~ William James (1842-1910) The Varieties

"During one conversation
with Gurdjieff in our group, which was beginning to become permanent,
I asked: "Why, if ancient knowledge has been preserved and
if, speaking in general, there exists a knowledge distinct from
our science and philosophy or even surpassing it, is it so carefully
concealed, why is it not made common property? Why are the men
who possess this knowledge unwilling to let it pass into the
general circulation of life for the sake of a better and more
successful struggle against deceit, evil, and ignorance? This
is, I think, a question which usually arises in everyone's mind
on first acquaintance with the ideas of esotericism." "There
are two answers to that," said Gurdjieff. "In the first
place, this knowledge is not concealed; and in the second place,
it cannot, from its very nature, become common property. We will
consider the second of these statements first. I will prove to
you after to you afterwards that knowledge" (he
emphasized the word) "is far more accessible to those
capable of assimilating it than is usually supposed; and that
the whole trouble is that people either do not want it or cannot
receive it." ~ P.D. Ouspensky relating the Teaching
of G.I. Gurdjieff from In Search Of The Miraculous
