What are you aiming at, son?

“You must have an aim, a serious aim,” said Gurdjieff. And of course that is true. Without an aim, we are loose cannons. We live eccentrically, inadvertently.

In the city

The answers to life’s most important questions are within us. For assistance with lesser matters—how to play the piano, for example, or car repair—we may seek assistance from our environment. The inner life is primary; the outer is secondary. Life returns us to the city of self-trust, to the temple of self-sufficiency.

“Stay in the city.” Heed not signs and wonders.
