From the Author
In the Name of Real World Views
Views from the Real World is above all the Life Stance Opus Magnum Objective Manifesto for the Seekers of Truth, an OM OM for the Seekers of Truth written in the 1st Decan of the Age of Aquarius. The first book with this title of Views from the Real World of Gurdjieff is from Gurdjieff’s Earlier Talks in Moscow as recollected by his pupils which came into publication in 1973 and is considered as the first initiating original life stance objective manifesto of views from real world individuals with higher inner beings for a Fourth Way pilgrimage. However, Real World Views, as a continuation is the works of Tan Man Ho who was inspired by the Gurdjieff's work and together with this first original works of Gurdjieff as recollected by his pupils is the real Life Stance Opus Magnum Objective Manifesto of the 1st Decan of the Age of Aquarius much needed by the Seekers of Truth - a complete treatise for people on the Fourth Way pilgrimage to acquire higher being bodies with Aquarian characteristics. Like Gurdjieff’s Third Series, the mission of this Life Stance Opus Magnum Objective Manifesto from Real World Views is:
To assist the arising, in the mentation and in the feelings of the reader, of a veritable, non-fantastic representation not of that illusory world which he now perceives, but of the world existing in reality
Gurdjieff’s three series known as All and Everything which consists of ‘Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson’ (First series, first published in 1950), ‘Meetings with Remarkable Men’ (Second series, first published in 1963) and the incomplete work ‘Life is Real Only then When ‘I Am’’ (Third series, privately printed in 1974) together it is the Gurdjieff’s Aquarian Bible for the Seekers of Truth.
Details of the three series of Gurdjieff’s writings are:
FIRST SERIES: Three books under the title of “An Objectively Impartial Criticism of the Life of Man,” or, “Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson.”
SECOND SERIES: Three books under the common title of “Meetings with Remarkable Men.”
THIRD SERIES: Four books under the common title of “Life Is Real Only Then, When ‘I Am.’”
All written according to entirely new principles of logical reasoning and strictly directed towards the solution of the following three cardinal problems:
FIRST SERIES: To destroy, mercilessly, without any compromises whatsoever, in the mentation and feelings of the reader, the beliefs and views, by centuries rooted in him, about everything existing in the world.
SECOND SERIES: To acquaint the reader with the material required for a new creation and to prove the soundness and good quality of it.
THIRD SERIES: To assist the arising, in the mentation and in the feelings of the reader, of a veritable, non-fantastic representation not of that illusory world which he now perceives, but of the world existing in reality.
Views from the Real World of Gurdjieff and Real World Views of Tan Man Ho have the same impact in tone, vigor, graciousness and fragrance of the third series of Gurdjieff’s writings - Life is Real Only Then When I Am. It is the branch from an interval of the Gurdjieff’s Aquarian Bible. All other writings from Gurdjieff’s direct and indirect future generations of the same breed and also from pupils of the highest rank together have produced a continuum of knowledge for the generation to come. Both Gurdjieff Movements which is the moving center calisthenics and the Gurdjieff’s Music of Thomas de Hartmann which is the feeling center’s food in sound forms are the holistic integration of the same breed.
Das Kapital together with the philosophy of Dialectical Materialism (the early stage of the formation and consolidation of Trioctave Materialism) is often called Marx’s Aquarian Bible of the working class and so is the political Communist Manifesto which is this Aquarian Bible’s social-economic and political manifesto. The international communist party is their sociocosmic realization which is organizational and has missions and goals centered on the historical survival of the majority working people at large. Here, Views from the Real World is the Life Stance Opus Magnum Objective Manifesto of Gurdjieff’s Aquarian Bible for the Seekers of Truth and the Fourth Way schools is their sociocosmic realization which is organizational and is very broad-based. The religious Piscean Bible and all the other Piscean Holy Scriptures from different great religions that have emerged from planet Earth during the Astrological Age of Pisces, hitherto, have their creeds (religious manifestos) and organizational schools for havatvernonian proned believers. While Gurdjieff’s Aquarian Bible and the Opus Magnum Objective Manifesto is able to attract the havatvernonian proned non-believers and believers, fence-sitters, atheists, idealists, materialists and all spiritualists alike.
All historically march in three, as if pre-ordained by higher beings to obey the Law of Three (trinity), and manifest as octaves in obedience to the Law of Seven (eightfoldness).
In the Name of Real World Views, The Most Impartial of Thoughts, Feelings and Actions, May you be blessed by its Noble Truth and be Enlightened with Real “I Am”.
