George Gurdjieff Quotes

The Great Knowledge is handed on in succession from age to age, from people to people… The great centers of initiation in India, Assyria, Egypt, Greece, illumine the world with a bright light. The revered names of the great initiates, the living bearers of the truth, are handed on reverently… Truth is fixed by means of symbolical writings and legends and is transmitted to the mass of people for preservation in the form of customs and ceremonies, in oral traditions… in sacred art through… dance, music, sculpture and various rituals. It is communicated openly after a definite trial to those who seek it and is preserved by… the chain of those who know. After a certain time has elapsed, the centers of initiation die out one after another, and the ancient knowledge departs through underground channels into the deep, hiding from the eyes of the seekers. The bearers of this knowledge also hide… but they do not cease to exist. From time to time separate streams break through to the surface, showing that somewhere deep down in the interior, even in our day, there flows the powerful ancient stream of true knowledge of being. To break through to this stream, to find it—this is the task and the aim of the search. ~ George Gurdjieff Quotes
