Gurdjieff International Review
The author, Bob Hunter, was a student of Beryl PogsonMaurice Nicolls secretary and biographer. He emphasizes that Nicolls special contribution to the Fourth Way is that his teaching, by leavening the method transmitted by P. D. Ouspensky, helps people to value the Work [and] showed how to see the good of it.
“The Work, when not specifically applied, comes to resemble nothing but a museum full of a number of things. People wander about in it, now looking at a case labeled ‘Higher Centers’—which appears to be quite empty—and then looking at a tall wire construction consisting of circles labeled ‘Ray of Creation,’ which they view with great disfavor.”
“It is particularly important to observe the things that attract and keep the attention, because they produce imagination. Study of attention is a very important part of self-study.”
“Directing one’s attention to the Intellectual or Emotional Centre demands internal attention. Internal attention begins with self-observation.”
