Gurdjieff: What Can Be Serious for a Man in Prison?

“If a man could understand all the horror of the lives of ordinary people who are turning around in a circle of insignificant interests and insignificant aims, if he could understand what they are losing, he would understand that there can only be one thing that is serious for him — to escape from the general law, to be free. What can be serious for a man in prison who is condemned to death? Only one thing: How to save himself, how to escape: nothing else is serious.”

— G. I. Gurdjieff
Painting. Edward Munch. The Dance of Life 1899–1900. Oil on canvas.

    I’m finally tackling the Kundalini event I was sure would take my life. It’s been such a prison for 20 yrs. +. I can’t thank you enough for seeing the “mystic” in me. It helped me find the courage to begin this healing. I’m anticipating such freedom. (I’ve attchd. a song on YouTube that says it for me. )

    Hope you’re well.
