Description

A new Channel 4 series will take viewers on a global journey to meet real life superhumans from the backstreets of Bucharest to the jungles of Bali, to witness ordinary people demonstrating the most spectacular extraordinary powers. Ultimamente sentivo nominare spesso Frammenti di un insegnamento sconosciuto e alla fine mi sono decisa a comprarlo.

Alcune parti sono scorrevoli e ho letto volentieri dell'incontro tra Gurdjieff e Ouspensky e di alcune parti dell'insegnamento. Throughout the last year and a half or so of reading this book, it forced me time and again to rethink the degree of control I have over my own life, to question dominant norms and values, to assess whether I am spending my energy correctly, and generally just to think of ways to improve myself. The book cover has no visible wear, and the dust jacket (if applicable) is included for hard covers. Gurdjieff's talks about attaining true consciousness reminds me of David Foster Wallace's famous speech 'This is Water'. We are introduced to the idea of essence and personality, the division of human nature between what is man’s own and what he acquires; we learn of the existence and role of other centers besides the three basic centers.The latter exhibited a wonderfully inspiring revelation of interpretations, which were simple, clear, and directly perceivable--not to mention being also clearly interconnected.

These places attract pilgrims who want to solve different problems in their life or to recover from illnesses. Ann Hood is the author of six novels, including Ruby and Somewhere Off the Coast of Maine (both from Picador). There now proceeds a discussion of the structure of the human organism seen in the light of the universal laws of the transformation of energy.Interspersed with this are some interesting personal observations of how Gurdjieff conducted his practice and any special effects of the teachings that the student Ouspensky experienced (which is very little).
