Aug 25, Elena rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is an extraordinary mind-altering book, if you allow it to be. It talks about ‘hydrogens’ and has the airs of an actual science, but is totally void of empirical justification. Spiega anche l’ enneagrammama, ovviamente, non l’ho mica capito. Way too much esoteric stuff for my tastes.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Gurdjieff’s thoughts and universal view. I cannot tell you more than has been said already, except that it has blown my husca. It seems he was some of both dee Ouspensky broke with him in the end.
Jun 30, Dean rated it it was amazing Shelves: Certainly, Buddhist and other groups, being made up of people, have their flaws, and there are things to be learned in some not all! It goes without saying that In Search of the Miraculous has inspired great thinkers and writers of ensuing furdjieff movements, including Marianne Williamson, the highly acclaimed author of A Return to Love and Illuminata. I really enjoyed the book, it was like following them on thier journey.
Some, including his close pupil Rodney Collin, say that he finally gave up the system injust before his death, but his own recorded words on the subject “A Record of Meetings”, published posthumously do not clearly endorse this judgement, nor does Ouspensky’s emphasis on “you must make a new beginning” after confessing “I’ve left the mllagroso.

In Search of the Miraculous: And such people are in the majority”. And that there is a difference between knowledge and being and that people from the West tend to value Knowledge more than being while people from the East tend to value being more.

In Search of the Miraculous: Fragments of an Unknown Teaching by P.D. Ouspensky
However, all in all, no regrets for reading this book, which took my mind to explore some very new or uncommon views. All in all I got very little out of reading this book but I did stick with it to the end. If you’re into this sort of thing, this book will likely take a position of strong influence on your perception from here on.
Throughout the book Ouspensky shares the many conversations and teachings of Gurdjieff which reads much like a journal, covering many parts of his teaching.
In Search of the Miraculous: Fragments of an Unknown Teaching
Ouspensky, an independent thinker and the perfect man to bring such experiences to the page, did the world a great service by insisting upon the right to posthumously publish his interactions with his one-time teacher.
Physical evolution only takes us so far and we must consciously evolve ourselves beyond this point. He states that life on earth is “food for the moon” for example, or that an additional effort is required on top of eating, breathing and perceiving in order for the human body to manufacture the “finer substances of the astral body”, for example. Regardless, I strongly recommend In Search of the Miraculous. There is no real basis for negative emotions and these drain us of the energy needed to become conscious.
Having said all that, some of the ideas in this book are brilliant, like the concept of remembering oneself. Please, read it and keep an open mind. In this sense we are not one person but many, which explains how we can react in ways seemingly contrary to our previous convictions.
Thank you for notifying us. I couldn’t finish it. How does this content violate the Lulu Membership Agreement? I read it quite a while ago and I still want to return to it, it’s quite a strange book and some aspects of it – its readings of Biblical stories from the angle of Eastern philosphy for example, esp.
The whole storyline is rather enthralling, and Ouspensky who had a background in journalism, makes for an interesting read regardless of the theories contained therein. Not only because the many ideas, of which I enjoyed the ones on psychology much more than the ones on the cosmic order of things.
Like Hesse, Gurdjieff sees man as a plurality, and the singular ‘I’ as an illusion. Also, it’s somewhat suspicious that Ouspensky and Gurdjieff dedicate so much space to why you can’t possibly attain freedom unless you become part of a group and obey a single leader unconditionally and unquestioningly.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. This is inevitably Ouspensky’s own interpretation of Gurdjieff’s teachings, so although most of it is framed as direct quotation, I suspect he’s included a lot of his own views just as Plato made Socrates a character in his own dialogues.
May 05, Sky rated it it was ok Shelves: Hard to rate, but giving it five due to the rarity of the nature of the Fourth Way or does that mean I should have given it Four stars?
