The Gurdjieff Deception

March 9th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Start of a series on the writer Ouspensky and the world of shark sufis.
This question is from one of the comments, and I am going to begin some posts on this subject, which is quite controversial and distressing–very hard to deal with.

What is the source of your antipathy toward Gurdjieff, if I may ask?

There is a lot to say about this, but the simplest answer is that Gurdjieff is an untrustworthy influence. His own follower, Ouspensky, sounded the warning with his whisperings that he was a criminal. Few people grasp what was going on there, and need help in dealing with this sufistic booby trap.

    What indeed was going on there, in your opinion? If it were at least looking like a simple topic to dissect… But… Then we have that (those) car wreckage incidents, so unlikely and inappropriately to a man at the stature of Gurdjieff. Mysterious.
