Riflessioni sull’Ostinazione di Gurdjieff

di Keith A. Buzzell

... vivere e insegnare in modo da evocare una nuova concezione di Dio nel mondo, un cambiamento del vero significato della parola.*

Un “nuovo concetto di Dio nel mondo” richiederebbe, necessariamente, la distruzione delle vecchie concezion. Questa distruzione è lo scopo dichiarato di Gurdjieff in the opening pages of  All and Everything: An Objectively Impartial Criticism of the Life of Man or Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson:

To destroy, mercilessly, without any compromises whatsoever, in the mentation and feelings of the reader, the beliefs and views, by centuries rooted in him, about everything existing in the world.

In the end destruction leaves only ashes, which immediately leads to the question, “What is put in its place?” This question leads to one of the essential simultaneities contained in The Tales. Gurdjieff presents images of a new creation (an evolutional motion) while he simultaneously destroys the “beliefs and views, by centuries rooted in him, about everything …” (an involutional motion).
