Obscurity of ‘fourth way’
Comment on ‘Is there a path?”
In what way was “fourth way” teaching “stolen by Gurdjieff”? Did someone else “own” it? From whom did he steal it?
And before you start in on me, I do not now, nor have I ever been a follower of Gurdjieff, his disciples, his teachings, methods, or ideas. All I will claim is that I’ve read a couple of his books, and a few of others involved with him.
I am simply curious about your use of words, as they betray a perception of him, or his work, that I have noticed is starting to crop up all over the place.

I can’t answer your questions directly, because we don’t know. Isn’t it remarkable that people would devote their lives to something so unclear, and trust those who promote these deliberately vague deceptions?
