The Demiurge

One of the problems here with Bennett’s work is that he grafted it onto Gurdjieff’s work, with confusing results. Gurdjieff people assume ‘ownership of the ideas, when in fact they, and Gurdjieff, are ignorant of all of it, but pretend to knowledge.

Danger of Gurdjieffianity to the Christian legacy

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:36 pm

Gurdjieffinaity, an obvious pun on Christianity, is actually a liability for Christianity. It seems strange that Gurdjieff would speak of ‘esoteric Christianity’, without any real evidence. I will be that the real esoteric Christians have always been horrified at the torpedo in disguise Gurdjieff launched at that religion: the outcome is the loss of the innocent trust that animates real Christians, and the entry of a cynical reactionary black magic that makes all spiritual cults into dishonest scams demanding money. So I think that Gurdjieff, whatever his intent, was far more destructive of Christianity than the secular crowd.
