Gurdjieff’s Zombie Revelation

Moreover, it happens fairly often that essence dies in a man while his personality and his body are still alive. A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.”

“And indeed often people do go mad because they find out something of this nature without the proper preparation, that is, they see something they are not supposed to see. In order to see without danger one must be on the way. If a man who can do nothing sees the truth he will certainly go mad. Only this rarely happens. Usually everything is so arranged that a man can see nothing prematurely”

“Personality sees only what it likes to see and what does not interfere with its life. It never sees what it does not like. This is both good and bad at the same time. It is good if a man wants to sleep, bad if he wants to awaken.”

–G.I. Gurdjieff

  1. third house remarks:

    This is so timely. Been walking that tightrope for nine years now. Long story. Went through DHCA (reference wikipedia) during a “pause” on my way. As we know, there are no pauses. You’re either going forward or backward. I have received more help from the so called dead than the so called living – present company excepted. And my fluries of comments will probably subside once Pluto gets off my Moon (9d18m) and then I can start my Saturn return. Good stuff. Thanks.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I actually do think you should write much more on this subject, it may not be a taboo
    subject but usually people don’t focus on such topics.

    To the next! Kind regards!!
