‘You cannot get esoteric truth from esoteric lies’
Another Gurdjieff page from rickross.com, and here’s a nice quote:
Agehananda Bharati put it nicely when he said, you cannot get esoteric truth from esoteric lies.
I am often struck by the way people simply accept the ‘esoteric’ proposition thus: certain people claim authority in the name of unspecified ‘esotericism’, and proceed to tell lies about it. And this is the spiritual path.
