A change on the inside produces change on the outside, in the world of form.

A change on the outside changes nothing in the world of the formless.

Change is not going from A to B. Change is clear seeing.

A desire for change is not change.

Waiting for Godot

Another word for dying: waiting. Waiting is zombie consciousness. We wait for death.

More even than flattery, which he called “ass-licking,” Gurdjieff disdained waiting. Of a man who wanted food, “He is waiting for a roast pigeon to fly into his mouth.”

He withers who waits. We are cause, not effect. Waiting has this backwards.

“Let’s think about it first.” Where would be the profit in that? Until we’ve done something, we’ve got nothing to think about.
