The Work

The Works of GI. Gurdjieff and the Fourth Way experience are explained fully by online classes and exercises designed to further the knowledge of the Work.

THE SACRED INNER MARRIAGE

by Daniel Jacob

It’s frustrating for me to delay our discussion of Spirituality and Sex while I’m so busy at work. After Christmas, I’m looking forward to continuing these discussions. Some of you may understand what I’m saying, while others are just too busy in the “outer stuff” that there is no time for introspection or insight.
There is just so much to say and so many viewpoints to explore!

The innate panic that comes along with these next levels of our Soul’s Evolution MUST be our center of attention if we’re ever going to get anywhere in truly understanding this subject.

The fact is: We’re moving from a DUALISTIC Frame of Reference to what Carl Jung referred to as the “Great Sacred Marriage” which takes place inside the heart and soul of every person—regardless of gender. When the Sacred Marriage begins to occur, all the stress dynamics and “he said/she said” or “he did/she did” of the external world gets transferred to the Inner Planes of each person’s own Soul. Indeed, each of us MARRIES the masculine and feminine side of SELF. We still get to enjoy 3D separation, but we no longer take what appears in 3D as the TRUE VIEW of what’s going on. Instead, we process inwardly, and we experience outwardly……so that vividness and true insight can finally be birthed within us.

Once the Sacred Marriage is complete, there is no more room for victims or persecutors. There is no more room for unrequited love, no more room for resentments, frustrated desires, or externally based complaints. There is only SELF, and the manifold reflection of that Multidimensional SELF in a 3D world format.

Every male we see is a tiny reflection of SOME ASPECT that is playing out within that ONESELF. Every female wears for us a tiny flicker of the intuition/emotion that is longing to be known and recognized inside each of us. The more these “key mirrors” tend to upset us—either positively or negatively—the more they represent something vital that each of us NEEDS TO REALIZE about our inner terrain.

When a woman cries out “Are there ANY men in this world who are willing to commit to a truly intimate relationship?” What she is truly saing is: “I’m not quite ready for depth and intimacy right now. And the many “players” I attract into my life are evidence of my need to admit that.” There is no condemnation, once the Sacred Marriage is in motion. There is only REALIZATION of what’s true about us in a given moment of time.

When a man cries out: “Where are the truly PLAYFUL women in my universe……the ones who are willing to ride the waves of each NOW MOMENT, rather than demanding a signed “contract” of “foreverness” before they’re willing to follow the obvious attraction that exists between myself and them?” What he’s really seeing is his own DEPENDENT SIDE, which yearns for personal freedom, yet longs for someone who will always be there if and when he needs her. In essence, he’s looking for the MOTHER who abandoned him in some way, long ago. Because no one really wants to admit that he’s looking for a mother/lover……he will continuous project out those feelings of dependence onto the women who enter his life……opting to RUN AWAY if there is any sign of disapproval or abandonment in sight. In essence, he rejects her and leaves before she gets a chance to leave him.

And all of this………100% of this……..is about SELF……….both sides of an evolving, awakening SELF……as they seek to find each other in the foggy mist of forgetfulness.

Medical and Vedic Astrology–East Meets West

 

with Gwynne Mayer

Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Central time

January 10 – February 28 (8 weeks)

 

Start the New Year in a fresh way by learning about the ancient practice of astrology applied to medicine! Vedic Medical Astrology addresses health and longevity, and associates signs and planets with various diseases. Rather than diagnosing illness, however, we will use an intuitive and psychosomatic approach to look at our own contributions to any dysfunction that shows up in our natal charts. Our studies will suggest individualized ways to encourage healing, with emphasis on proactive, daily dedication to diet, the body, and mindfulness.

 

The first 20 minutes of each class will be recorded; afterward we will work with our individual charts. Knowledge of astrology and Eastern medicine, while helpful, is not required. We will use the books Medical Astrology: A Guide to Planetary Pathology, by Judith Hill, and Medical Astrology, by Jeffrey Wolf Green.

W.E. —“In Higher Being Bodies, page 195 the last sentence,  “But the horse needs to be convinced that Self-remembering is more important then its own steaming desires, which are only concerned with the needs of the moment.”

When I read this a couple weeks ago it brought a clarity into my increasing awareness of my different  states of consciousness.

So many of the I’s that I become have me in a state of no or minimal consciousness of myself, which is profound. I don’t even really exist in these states. Which consume so much of my time. Something coming from my body has a want and it wants it want now! Like a drug addict. It fits into a regular predictable pattern and if i don’t give it what it wants it gets, edgy, irritable, clever and deceptive to trick me, convince me into giving it what it wants right now. 

These I’s I take on, that I  become have their faces buried deep into the object of their identification.

I saw from the sentence i mentioned that these I’s generally see no memory, no past or future, they don’t even see themselves. They have no care for my well being. They just want what they want in that moment. No over all big picture. They don’t see they are over taken by a want nor do they care.They don’t know the light of consciousness. They seem to have never been fully drawn into the light of consciousness, which self remembering can begin to allow.

I think I saw once on a Tarot card dead people floating up out of their graves.  That is what i started to experience when i saw in a state of self remembering where there is  the awareness of the present moment, memory and  conscious sensing discerning ability . These I’s where forced to rise up out of their grave and connect to a bigger picture. There now was a clear difference, discernment  between these unconscious of themselves I’s and their surroundings and self remembering and the conscious mixing of the two. The unconscious force to rise in the encompassing unity of conscious light, created by self remembering. 

Then in a state of self remembering watching these I’s in me begin to float up out of the world of self centered unconsciousness into a state of seeing memory, truth, their relation to a bigger picture, the greater need of ones being.

Its Amazing! Its incredilible to me.”

 

OdB:  “I recognize this deeply. What you describe is an objective  result of Self-Observation. Now that what observes is under less laws then that what is observed. Work I’s are of a different weight and density and filled with precious Kesjdanian energy. Mechanical automatic I’s are much heavier, hard to observe and they do what they want and we lose precious Kesjdanian energy to them. Our aim is to keep this energy for Work. We need Kesjdanian energy for the accumulation of higher energies that belong to World 24 and even World 12 and 6. Mechanical I’s with almost no Consciousness belong to World 48 and 96. (See Lee Van Leer’s Chart below and chart of Ray of Creation)

As an example, let’s stay with competition. Don’t get me wrong I don’t say competition  is wrong or bad. I do say, for Work, competition belongs to World 48 and 96. This is where ; Playing a role comes in. We need non-identification and non-judgement so much if we wish to reach impartial Self-Observation.

We need to learn how to enter World 24. What keeps us away from that higher World, is our identification with World 48 and 96 . Gurdjieff would say, in these worlds we throw our energies from the emptiness into the void.

To reach 24 we need to consciously digest the two higher being foods, Abrusdonis and Helkdonis. To do this we need compassionate impartial Self-Observation.

Motivation of the heart.”

From W.E.

What I see now.

I remember myself.

Observer in head brain lights up my body and atmosphere. Fills this  universe of body and atmoshere with light. I see/sense this universe.

My heart lights up.

My observer in the head brain. Commands a powerful position, but needs to work to contemplate, digest the information it is receiving consciously.

The heart has a huge influence on what actions to or not to be taken to what is being percieved, contemplated, digested by the observing awareness. It reaches out in kindness and understanding.

I’m breathing with awareness.

The spine gives another quality a strenght and a reference point of stability, groundedness. knows where it needs to stand. It sees the actions that bring me to vertical center. Strenghten my vertical spine and what will pull me away an fragment me.

You mention the density of different I’s and those that through the empty into the void and those who don’t. I see that clearer now.

Abrustdonis and Helkdonis I don’t think I know what these substances are, but i read more about them and see how they are relate to what we are talking about and what I read said they where related to conscious contemplation,  conscious labor and intentional suffering.

I’m beginning to feel, what seems to be the feel of compassionate impartial self observation. There is no criticism. There is a feeling of love, of kindness to self and others. I sat with grief today, it was ok. I worked not  to identify with it. Attach it to someone or something. I didnt try to cover it. It help show more of what i previously could not see as well before. It helped me be more helpful. It made me more real.

  1. An overview of our study and how we will present the material as it is connected to the Chakras, the Signs and the Spinal and Neurological centers.

  2. The connection and correlation with each planet and sign, with an emphasis on Transits and Progressions on personal charts and how they are coordinated with the body.

  • The correlation to the somatic/psychosomatic conditions created by transits and Progressions to the signs/planets of the body.

  1. Continuation of no. III

  2. Balancing our dualities created by these occurrences.

Intentional Coaching —- Following your Intention, Inspiration and Intuition — Manifesting daily, weekly, monthly, all that you are meant to be and more.

 

After forty years of counseling, therapizing, educating and consnulting with clients, friends and loved ones, I have realized that we, as individuals, do not meet our intentions and ultimate purposes in life. This causes a myriad of problems; addiction, depression, mood disorders, neurosis and general problems with well being.

In order to counter these issues with positive outcomes and affirmative actions, I have begun coaching on a weekly, bi-weekly and monthly basis at a minimum cost to those who are committed to their own succeses and aspirations.

This involves individual sessions based on your immediate needs and will focus on the following:

 

 …. immediate condition of your life and how you have manifest what you want and don’t want.       Do you know the difference?

 

…. learning how your hourly and daily actions fit into your overall goals. This includes your connection to family, education, marriage, partnership, career, health, volunteer work and friendships

 

…. develop contiguous daily, weekly and monthly goals that show your true intention. What behaviors do you put in place to portray your true intentions?

 

…. journal your dreams, activating the unconscious to get in touch with your spiritual guidance coming from within. (It is very important to know that your unconscious which is 80% of you, is supporting you.)

 

….Work with a form of your own divination and intuition whether you are Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Moslem or Jewish.

 

….your intentions and how are you living them out? (behaviors that put all of this in place.)

 

….your inspirations and how you are being inspired to be the best that you can be? How do you take care of your ‘soul’ when it sends you messages?

 

….your daily routines helping or preventing you from having all that you want in life?

weekly accounting of daily activities that support all of the above.

 

….your physical and emotional disciplines in terms of giving you what you need. Enabling you to do what you want? Honoring your sacred space?

 

If you want to make a commitment to this process please call or write for an initial consultation:  gwynne.mayer@gmail.com Website   gwynnemayer.com  phone: 210-393-5349.
