“Life can have moments of vividness – the miraculous. However, day-to-day I make my life mundane. My search is to find ‘in myself’, moments that are more real, alive and vivid. I’ve found I can’t ‘do’ this on my own, and there’s no workshop solution. I need to be with an active group of people, studying a serious Teaching which has a history and a transmission of ‘something’.”
Where do I find something authentic in my life? I have reached a crossroads where I need to find more meaning, I feel hungry for something true. Where do I search for it?
I’ve looked around trying to find glimpses of truth. I wanted it to be real, beyond doubt.
I’ve found a lot empty things, without meaning. How do I cope with all this when I feel I need something else to feed my being?
Is there still something miraculous to be found in this life? Do I have to withdraw from the world to find it, or is it hidden in plain sight in the hurly-burly of London?
We will explore these questions at our next Café Gurdjieff Meetup.
“The ‘miraculous’ is very difficult to define. But for me this word had a quite definite meaning. I had come to the conclusion a long time ago that there was no escape from the labyrinth of contradictions in which we live except by an entirely new road, unlike anything hitherto known or used by us. But where this new or forgotten road began I was unable to say. I already knew then as an undoubted fact that beyond the thin film of false reality there existed another reality from which, for some reason, something separated us.”
In Search of the Miraculous by P D Ouspensky
