The Possibility to Work

We are not accustomed to think of the work as belonging to the realm of the subconscious. But it is essentially no different from the clear statement made by Gurdjieff at the beginning of Beelzebub’s Tales where he informs us that he will be speaking to both our consciousnesses. In his inimitable, provocative way, he says that our “pure waking consciousness” is “fictitious” and that our other consciousness which we call the “subconscious” is our “real human consciousness.”
