Gurdjieff and dead gurus
All this special pleading is useless. It is now almost a century since Ouspensky encountered Gurdjieff. what has come of it? Nothing at all. Zero. Not a single realized man springs from that tradition. A figure like E.J.Gold fakes it by using a hidden Crowley form of black magic to ape Gurdjieff, but that is also a barren fake school.
These dead gurus are dangerous for people, because they get infected with inscrutable demonology. People need to move on to real teachings,and living teachers.
The Gurdjieff shadow world can be dangerous for the naive believer: these canrnivorous sufi sharks use idiots as ‘food’ and that is another reason noone develops: these con men never intended to help anyone. They use people til they become suspicious, and leave, which for many is, never.
