The Work of Gurdjieff has many aspects.
But through whatever form he expressed himself, his voice was heard as a call.
He calls because he suffers from the inner chaos in which we live.
He calls to us, to open our eyes.
He asks us why we are here, what we wish for, what forces we obey.
He asks us above all, if we understand what we are.
He wants us to bring everything back into question.
And because he insists and his insistence compels us to answer,
a relationship is created between him and ourselves which is an integral part of his Work.
For nearly 40 years this call rang with such force that people came to him
from all over the world.
The Fourth Way comes for a reason -- it serves the evolutionary movement.
Its aim is to produce people of a higher level of consciousness
who can be vessels for the evolutionary forces
We are already seeing the tragic consequences of the religion of self-interest. Gurdjieff says, "that it is necessary now for man to begin to see things as they really are. We have in us an instrument that enables us to see the truth, not indirectly through what other people have taught us but by a direct perception". The instrument of this direct perception he calls by the ancient name of 'conscience'.
