“It's only with the present that you can repair the past and prepare the future. The future and the past do not exist without the present. The present exists to repair all our mistakes and to prepare the future, that is to say, another life, desirable for you. It is very important for you to feel the present. You must do everything in order to have a present...a different tomorrow depends on the presence of today.
It is necessary to practice.”
G.I. Gurdjieff, “Questions and Responses,” from Gurdjieff - Essays and Reflections on the Man and His Teaching, edited by Jacob Needleman and George Baker
Gurdjieff’s teaching is truly about All and Everything, as he titled his three books: the cosmos, the laws that govern it, the place of human beings in the cosmos, and a psychology that even now, 100 years later, seems fresh and new.
While it contains wide-ranging, intellectually appealing, theoretical and philosophical knowledge, it is grounded in a practical approach to inner development while living in a world in need of practical wisdom.
The poster above was created by the Colorado Group to transmit some of that wisdom.
