Will, free will, and spiritual traditions

It is worth noting that Gurdjieff’s legacy (like a great deal of monotheistic theology) has a complex legacy of its own on the issue of free will. (See previous post today).
His insights (mostly implicit in yoga) into the mechanization of behavior and habit are both a negation and affirmation of the issue of will. The question of will is not so simple, of course.

Between Schopenhauer, Kant, and Bennett/Samkhya, we have a set of ideas that might help to refound the question.
