A free teaching does not cost money. J.E.Soutar.
Fourthwaywork.net has been formed to draw together like minded individuals, interested in learning to practice methods of self observation and developing consciousness.
The information shared does not cost anything except the effort to understand it.
It is non-denominational embracing all creeds and colours and enjoining them to foster understanding of the different names consciousness has gone under in the literature of individuals from many countries.
The society draws on many sources for inspiration and information.
To name a few: the Tao Te Ching, Dhammapada or Dharmapadda, Buddhist and Hindu literature, Koran, Torah, Qabbalah, Buddhist eightfold path, Mahabharrata (or epic story) of which the Bhagavad Gita is only a little slice, Ramayana, Upanishads, Patanjali, Aphorisms of Sandilya, Lao Tsu, Book of Tao, Rig veda, all the vedas, Sankaracharya, Lalla-Vakyani, Zoroastrian texts, Sufis such as Al Ghazali, Ibn al Arabi, Jami, Kabir, Omar Khayam, Jallal ud Din Rumi, Abdul Qadir, Talib, Attar, Hafiz, Hermetic literature, The Bible,The Apocrhya, poetry, art, Ouspensky, Gurdjieff, etc, and has also recourse to information on body or endocrine types and centres of gravity or predominant brain, which means, as Mr Gurdjieff pointed out, whether one is a gut person, a heart person, or a head person, as they all view the world through their predominant centre or brain.
This and their body type or predominant endocrine gland give rise to seeing the world through a filter.
This is reffered to in the Bible as our "seeing the world through a glass but darkly ” so we, if we want to see things more clearly must polish the glass, which would mean learning to see things without this constant bias, to see things as they are and not in a partial way created by these and other filters.
Consciousness as defined by the Ottenheimer English dictionary, Ottenheimer Publishers Inc. U.S.A. means, having inward knowledge (of); having the use of ones faculties, the state of being mentally awake to ones surroundings.
”Consciousness is a much smaller part of our mental life than we are conscious of, because we cannot be conscious of what we are not conscious of. How simple that is to say, how difficult to appreciate! It is like asking a flashlight in a dark room to search around for something that does not have a light shining on it.
The flashlight, since there is light shining in whatever direction it turns, would have to conclude that there is light everywhere. And so consciousness can seem to pervade all mentality when actually it does not.
