During the course of our experiences with the Cassiopaeans during the two years before Ark's arrival on the scene, we had many other experiences with "attack" that resulted from our association with individuals who were what we had begun to call "agents." I have recounted some of these in the Wave Series, including the research I was doing at the time which, little by little, made me aware that something seriously interesting was going on with this communication with Cassiopaea.
Up to this point in time, there were a number of esoteric "traditions" that were available to seekers of higher knowledge, all of which emanated from "secret societies," and groups that required oaths of secrecy, rites and rituals, or periodic or permanent withdrawal from the world in order for a person to achieve higher consciousness - which was, of course, promulgated as the means by which the ultimate goal was achieved; this goal being either power over the forces of life, or escape from life itself.
Ark and I both have investigated these "paths" to some greater or lesser extent through our searches, but neither of us ever felt sufficiently inspired by their exoteric cloaks to do more than give them academic interest. "Control over the forces of life" via magic and ceremony never appealed to either of us, and abdicating responsibility to life and other people also never appealed to either of us. What we had both independently recognized was that George Gurdjieff had brought to the world "Fragments of an unknown teaching" that resonated deeply in our souls.
Gurdjieff's work is evidently deeply rooted in an ancient tradition that predates all other known teachings promulgated by any of the so-called secret societies. Some have suggested that it points toward Egypt, but we believe that we will be able to clearly demonstrate in our upcoming book, Noah, that its origins are precisely where Gurdjieff said they were: deep in Central Asia.
Even though he had received his initiations in the Tradition of the Ancients, Gurdjieff was clearly breaking with the tradition by opening it up to the world at large. No one has any clear answer as to whether he was charged with this mission, or whether he decided on his own to take the responsibility for gambling on awakening mankind at large, but the result was that he came under intense criticism and castigation by both initiates and the uninitiated.
Gurdjieff seemed to be acutely aware that the conditions of life had become so abnormal that only a desperate gamble might avert a certain catastrophe. He introduced a practical esoteric method into a system of initiation that taught that life itself was the great initiator. He hoped that he would be able to stimulate enough people to undergo the adventure of self-awakening so that the world as we know it might not be destroyed.
Gurdjieff himself said that "The teaching whose theory is here being set out is completely self-supporting and independent of other lines and it has been completely unknown up to the present time."
That does not, of course, mean that it did not exist for millennia before Gurdjieff was charged with its exposition in these times.
The significant things about what came to be known as the Fourth Way was that it was not a religion, there was no dogma, no belief system, every idea and practice was to be verified by one's own intentional observation and experimentation. What was essential to it was not devotion or belief, but effort, self-study, self-sacrifice in the true sense of the word, and understanding. What was more, the effort had to be completely voluntary.
The central theme of Gurdjieff's work was that the individual could awaken through special efforts, utilizing the uncertainty, shocks, suffering and negativity of real life, to produce the ability to extend intentionally the inner processes of the conscious absorption of impressions for the purpose of stimulating and enhancing awareness at multiple levels of being. This effort was aimed at developing a special quality, a wading through the processes of the psychological and organic self with a view to preparing the ground for the development of the higher self that was more than the sum of its parts. This quality that was sought was that of the higher mind that could impartially observe the self as it is - not as it was imagined to be, or wished to be - so as to "grow the mustard seed" of the essence so that a higher-being body could be formed and a soul crystallized.
Observation of the self, and the world, as it is, brings a kind of suffering that only impersonal truth can evoke. And doing it repeatedly can crack the shell of the Matrix.
The owners and publishers
of these pages wish to state that the material presented here is the product
of our research and experimentation in Superluminal Communication. We invite
the reader to share in our seeking of Truth by reading with an Open, but skeptical
mind. We do not encourage "devotee-ism"
nor "True Belief." We DO encourage the seeking of Knowledge and Awareness in
all fields of endeavor as the best way to be able to discern lies from truth.
The one thing we can tell the reader is this: we work very hard, many hours
a day, and have done so for many years, to discover the "bottom line" of our
existence on Earth. It is our vocation, our quest, our job. We constantly seek
to validate and/or refine what we understand to be either possible or probable
or both. We do this in the sincere hope that all of mankind will benefit, if
not now, then at some point in one of our probable futures.
