1. A Further Record, Extracts from Meetings
1928-1945 by P.D. Ouspensky
MR. O. Recurrence is in eternity. It is not the same life. This
life ends and time ends. There is a theory - and this system admits
this theory - that time can be prolonged. I have no evidence. If you
think about time, how many attempts were made by spiritualists and
others - but there is no evidence. The study of recurrence must
begin with the study of children's minds, and particularly before
they begin to speak. If they could remember this time they could
remember very interesting things. But unfortunately, when they begin
to speak they become real children and they forget after six months
or a year.
2. A New Model of the Universe by P.D. Ouspensky
ONE of the American
reviewers of the first edition of the "New Model of the Universe"
remarks that two ideas in this book presented particular
difficulties for him: the idea of esotericism and the idea of the
psychological method. It cannot be denied that, in general, these
ideas are very far from modern thought. But as there is no sense
in reading my book without having some conception of the meaning of
these two ideas I will try here to show ways of approach to them.
3. A Record of Some of the Meetings held by P.D. Ouspensky Between
1930 - 1947
When Mr. O. came in, after answering a
few questions, he said that if we had any questions on what he
had said last time, we must ask them then, as he would not come back
to the subject again; we would have other things to talk about
later. During the meeting he would go over what he had said. After a certain number more questions, he said
that when speaking of 'I', it was necessary to realize that, in
Special Doctrine, 'I' could be spoken of in five ways, on five
4. All and Everything: Beezlebub's Tales to His Grandson by G.I. Gurdjieff
FIRST SERIES Three books under the title of Beelzebub's Tales to
His Grandson. An Objectively Impartial Criticism of the Life of Man.
SECOND SERIES Two books under the common title of Meetings with
THIRD SERIES Five books under the title of Life
Is Real Only Then, When "I Am. "
5. Gurdjieff's Philosophy of Nature by Basarab Nicolescu
A particle-physicist’s bold, rigorous exploration of the
relationship between Gurdjieff’s cosmological mythos and leading
theories in physics and cosmology.
It is becoming very
fashionable almost everywhere to find parallels between modern
science and this or that teaching, this or that philosophical
system, this or that religion.
6. J.G. Bennett's Intepretation of the Teaching of Gurdjieff by William James Thompson
This thesis examines the spiritual
teachings of G.I.Gurdjieff from the point of view of his 'heterodox‘
pupil J.G.Bennett. It concentrates on the difficulties of defining
criteria of valid lineage that stem from the teaching‘s 'ahistorical
origins‘. The problem of transmission is examined in the light of
Gurdjieff‘s representation of his teaching as a manifestation of the
"fourth way" – i.e., an esoteric stream which surfaces and
disappears in accordance with a higher purpose.
7. Hellas, A Spectacle with Music and Dance in Four Acts
THE ideas expressed in this play are not original. They
have been expressed many times in history in various ways—now
philosophically, now as poetry, and again in painting or even in
architecture. I and others learned them as a system of psychology.
But psychological language already has a fin de siècle flavour: as
the author of that form well knew, when he declared before he died:
'I abandon this system. Try to reconstruct it all'.
8. In Search of the Miraculous
by P. D. Ouspensky
I RETURNED to Russia in November, 1914,
that is, at the beginning of the first world war, after a rather
long journey through Egypt, Ceylon, and India. The war had found me
in Colombo and from there I went back through England.
leaving Petersburg at the start of my journey I had said that I was
going to "seek the miraculous."
9. Letters from Russia 1919
by P.D. Ouspensky
From 1907 until 1913 Ouspensky wrote fairly regularly for a
Russian newspaper, mostly on foreign affairs. At the same time he
was working on various books based on the idea that our
consciousness is an incomplete state not far removed from sleep, and
also that our three-dimensional view of the universe is inadequate
Hoping that answers to some of the questions
he had posed might have been found by more ancient civilisations, he
made an extensive tour of Egypt, Ceylon and India.
10. Lessons in Religion for a Skeptical World
HONESTY, sincerity and truth are the soap, water and towel of
the soul. It is the message of Christ washing the feet of the
apostles. Christ and His love are great; as great as the whole
sphere. It is the message of Mary of Magdala, washing the feet of
Christ. What you are going to read is an explanation of this in
many words. They are all directed to the heart: do not read them
with the intellect.
11. Life is Real Only Then When I Am
by G.I. Gurdjieff
I am. . .? But what has become of that full-sensing of the whole
of myself, formerly always in me in just such cases of
self-questioning during the process of self-remembering. . . .
Is it possible that this inner ability was achieved by me thanks to
all kinds of self-denial and frequent self-goading only in order
that now, when its influence for my Being is more necessary even
than air, it should vanish without trace?
No! This cannot be!
. . . Something here is not right!

13. Meetings With Remarkable Men by G.I. Gurdjieff
EXACTLY A MONTH HAS ELAPSED since I finished the first series of my
writings—just that period of the flow of time which I intended to
devote exclusively to resting the parts of my common presence
subordinate to my pure reason. As I wrote in the last chapter of the
first series,1 I had given myself my word that during the whole of
this time I would do no writing whatsoever, but would only, for the
well-being of the most deserving of these subordinate parts, slowly
and gently drink down all the bottles of old calvados now at my
disposal by the will of fate in the wine-cellar of the Prieuré, and
specially provided the century before last by people who understood
the true ...
14. Strange Life of Ivan Osokin by P.D. Ouspensky
THE SCREEN a scene at Kursk station in Moscow. A bright April day of
1902. A group of friends, who came to see Zinaida Krutitsky and her
mother off to the Crimea, stand on the platform by the sleeping-car.
Among them Ivan Osokin, a young man about twentysix.
is visibly agitated although he tries not to show it.
15. The Christian Mystery by Rodney Collin
created man in his own image. In his own image
he created also nebula, sun, earth, cell and molecule. For his
image is a creature with seven natures, living on three foods, and
endowed with all possibilities. Such a creature is truly a cosmos.
God is threefold, and through the play of his radiance, his mass and
his time, all creatures and all phenomena are brought to being. By
his threefold nature, too, they are sustained. For God enters them
as three nourishments, without any one of which they perish
miserably. Food, breath and light are these three.
16. The Fourth Way by P.D. Ouspensky
BEFORE I BEGIN
TO EXPLAIN TO YOU in a general way what this system is about, and to
talk about our methods, I want particularly to impress on your minds
that the most important ideas and principles of the system do not
belong to me. This is chiefly what makes them valuable, because if
they belonged to me they would be like all other theories invented
by ordinary minds — they would give only a subjective view of
17. The Herald of Coming Good by G.I. Gurdjieff
Inspired as I am by a deep conviction, springing from a long line of
experimental elucidations and deductions pointing to the conclusion
that, if a man desires sincerely and seriously, and out of no mere
curiosity, to attain to the knowledge of the way leading to Real
Being, and if he fulfils to this end all that is requested of him
and begins, in fact, among other things to aid indirectly, and from
his very first step, the attainment of this by others, he will, by
this act alone, become as it were the forming ground for the real
data contributing to the manifestation of objective and actual Good;
18. The Herald of Harmony by Rodney Collin
AN AGE is
dying away. A new age is coming to birth. What are the signs of a
new age? In the heavens, a new combination of influences. From
the Hierarchy, a new generation. Among men, a new function awakened,
a new word of salvation given. For the body of mankind grows as
the body of a man grows —one function after another opening in him,
each culmination at its appointed age, each fulfilled and
transcended by the next.
19. The Mirror of Light by Rodney Collin
live our life in a mirror; everything is reversed. When we see a
scene it is received in the brain reversed. The rays go out, cross
and are received in reverse. Reality exists in the place where the
two lines cross, if we can find it. The same takes place in our
thoughts; we think that cause is effect and effect, cause. For us,
the physical is more real than the spiritual. That which our senses
perceive we call objective, while all that is imperceptible to our
physical senses we call unreal or imaginary.
20. The Mysteries of the Seed by Rodney Collin
LESSER and Greater Eleusinian Mysteries, in the form that became
famous all over the ancient world as from Pisistratus, were founded
sometime around the 13th Century B. C. The tradition is that Orpheus
and his followers instituted them. According to other sources they
are older still, and were given to the Pelasgian women by the
Danaids, initiates from Egypt, subsequently destroyed by the Dorian
invaders, and reformed by Orpheus. The account of the Myth of
Demeter and Kore follows a sixth century homeric hymn.
21. Tertium Organum by P.D. Ouspensky
difficult thing is to know what we do know and what we do not know. Therefore, if we wish to know something, we must first of all
establish what we accept as data, and what we consider requires
definition and proof, that is, we must determine what we know
already, and what we wish to know. In relation to our cognition
of the world and of ourselves the conditions would be ideal if it
were possible to accept nothing as data and regardeverything as
requiring definition and proof. In other words, it would be best to
assume that we know nothing, and take this as our starting point.
22. The Psychology of Man's Possible Evolution
I SHALL speak about the study of psychology, but I must
warn you that the psychology about which I speak is very different
from anything you may know under this name. To begin with I must say
that practically never in history has psychology stood at so low a
level as at the present time. It has lost all touch with its origin
and its meaning so that now it is even difficult to define the term
psychology: that is, to say what psychology is and what it studies.
And this is so in spite of the fact that never in history have there
been so many psychological theories and so many psychological
23. The Symbolism of the Tarot
by P.D. Ouspensky
No study of occult philosophy is possible without an
acquaintance with symbolism, for if the words occultism and
symbolism are correctly used, they mean almost one and the same
thing. Symbolism cannot be learned as one learns to build bridges or
speak a foreign language, and for the interpretation of symbols a
special cast of mind is necessary; in addition to knowledge, special
faculties, the power of creative thought and a developed imagination
are required. One who understands the use of symbolism in the arts,
knows, in a general way, what is meant by occult symbolism.
The Theory of Conscious Harmony by Rodney Collin
AUGUST 4, 1944 'Constantly perform action which is duty . . '
(Bhagavad Gita)—this seems to be the way out of the impasse where
man's impulses and personal ambitions constantly push him into
activities which still further feed these same ambitions and
impulses. But it is one thing to see this as a clear idea,
another to live by it. So much so, that sometimes one is forced to
put aside all that one has read in books or heard, and ask oneself
what one really knows for oneself, knows in such a way that all
one's conduct is guided by it.
25. The Theory of Celestial Influence
by Rodney Collin
All the progress obtained by our cerebral effort consists in the
ascertaining of material facts by ridiculously imperfect
instruments, which make up in a certain degree however for the
inefficiency of our organs. Every twenty years some unhappy
enquirer, who generally dies in the attempt, discovers that the
atmosphere contains a gas hitherto unknown, that an imponderable,
inexplicable, unqualifiable force can be obtained by rubbing a piece
of wax on cloth; that among the innumerable unknown stars, there is
one that has not yet been noticed in the immediate vicinity of
another which has ... Well, what about it?
26. The Theory of Eternal Life by Rodney Collin
is born and man dies. Between these two points lies a line of
development which is called life. But birth is not the beginning
for a man. For at this point thephysical vehicle which determines
what he will be is alreadyformed. Its strong and weak points, its
innate inclinations and potentialities, are already established. In
reality, man's individual career has begun much earlier, at
27. Talks With A Devil by P.D. Ouspensky
tell you a fairy tale," said the Devil, "on one condition: you must
not ask me the moral. You may draw any conclusion you like, but
please do not question me. As it is, far too many follies are laid
at our door, yet we, strictly speaking, do not even exist. It is you
who create us." My story takes place in New York some twenty-five
years ago. There lived then a young man by the name of Hugh B.;I
will not tell you his full name, but you will soon guess it for
yourself. His name is known now to people in all five parts of the
globe. But then he was completely unknown.
28. The Whirling Ecstasy by Aflaki
The heart is like
a grain, we resemble the mill; does the latter know why it turns? The body is like the mill, thoughts are the water which makes it
turn; the mill creaks and the water recognises its movement. The
water says: Ask the miller, who sends this water down the
mill-stream? And the miller will tell thee: O eater of bread, if
the mill turned not, who would be baker? Many strange things will
happen: silence! Ask God to inform thee. JELAL-ED-DIN
29. Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche
When Zarathustra was thirty years old, he left his home and the
lake of his home, and went into the mountains. There he enjoyed his
spirit and his solitude, and for ten years did not weary of it. But
at last his heart changed,—and rising one morning with the rosy
dawn, he went before the sun, and spake thus unto it:
Thou great star! What would be thy happiness if thou hadst not those
for whom thou shinest!
