The Disintegration of Space and Time

“often one persuades oneself that one wants to change but at the same time one wants to keep every small thing, so where is the change? Change is impossible if one wants to keep everything. To think about changing one must also think about what one would give up”…. -Osupensky, The fourth way-

Today, my son and I walked to the university and from there we walked to the City Hall.
We stopped few times for directions and every one on the way discouraged us to walk such a long distance.
We made it in no time.
I walked the exact same distances few years ago
and felt too it was quite a walk.
.
Today it seems my perceptions of space
and time has greatly changed.

…”I will give you an example of a personal attitude, you remember the small parable in the New Testament about a man finding a pearl and selling everything to go and buy it.” … “If we really decided to go for this kind of knowledge—or even for quite a small thing—and we went for it regardless of everything else, we would get it. This is a very important point. We say that we want knowledge, but we don’t really. We will pay for anything else, but for this we are not prepared to pay anything, and so, as a result, we get nothing.” Ouspensky, The fourth way.

Almost as time and space are slowly disappearing.
.
My teacher told me, I’m ready to make ‘the jump’,
it only depends on me.
And the jump is in the transparency of all, the silence.
Me owning up to my knowingness.
‘Stopping to play the blind, with no boundaries and reservations.
.
It means I have to stop pretending to be “human” in this projection.
.
Once you win your Ferrari you are left with few options;
you drive it, you forget you have it and go back to walk
or you push the Ferrari instead of driving it.
The second and the latter is what most people on the spiritual path do.
Both choices are going to ‘kill’ you,
but the latter is going to kill you while you are ‘awake’.
Slowly and painfully.
Exciting work.
another magic step further out…. 😀

…” 289. Q. Is payment sacrifice? A. Yes, but you have to sacrifice only non-existent things, imaginary things. All our values are imaginary. In the work one acquires new values and loses imaginary values.” Osupensky, The fourth way

Osupensky, The fourth way

“Sometimes one wants things without realizing what it involves and how much there is to pay. Try to think about it, perhaps you will see what I mean. This means that everything one may acquire needs a certain effort, and in order to make this effort, particularly to make it consciously, one must know why one is doing it and what one can get by this effort. And it is very important to understand too in which conditions one can work and without which conditions it is useless to try to work.

..

A. Payment is a principle. Payment is necessary not to the school but to the people themselves, for without paying they will not get anything. The idea of payment is very important and it must be understood that payment is absolutely necessary. One can pay in one way or another way and everyone has to find that out for himself. But nobody can get anything that he does not pay for. Things cannot be given, they can only be bought. It is magical, not simple. If one has knowledge, one cannot give it to another person, for only if he pays for it can the other person have it. This is a cosmic law. The idea of payment is very strongly emphasized in the New Testament in Matt. xiii in several beautiful parables that I have mentioned. (254. I will give you an example of a personal attitude, you remember the small parable in the New Testament about a man finding a pearl and selling everything to go and buy it.) Man has to be a good merchant, he must know what to buy and how much to pay. Things cannot fall from heaven, they cannot be found, they must be bought. What one can get is proportionate to what one is prepared to pay. And one has to pay in advance—there is no credit.

If we really decided to go for this kind of knowledge—or even for quite a small thing—and we went for it regardless of everything else, we would get it. This is a very important point. We say that we want knowledge, but we don’t really. We will pay for anything else, but for this we are not prepared to pay anything, and so, as a result, we get nothing.

Q. So in order to progress one must make small payments?

A. Or big.

Q. What are they?

A. This is what we are speaking about—you must find it for yourself. It always means
a certain effort, certain ‘doing’, different from what you would do naturally, and it
must be necessary or useful to the work.

Q. I do not understand the difference between efforts and payment.

A. Efforts may be payment, but they must be useful, and not only to you. It is
necessary to understand the work in general and the needs of the work. When one
understands all that, one will find ways of doing something useful. Attitude depends
on yourself and on your understanding; opportunity depends on circumstances.

A. If you do not work on yourself, you will not be able to pay. This is
the connection. Who will pay? False personality cannot pay.

289. Q. Is payment sacrifice?
A. Yes, but you have to sacrifice only non-existent things, imaginary things. All our values are imaginary. In the work one acquires new values and loses imaginary values.

often one persuades oneself
that one wants to change but at the same time one wants to keep every small thing, so
where is the change? Change is impossible if one wants to keep everything. To think
about changing one must also think about what one would give up.

But the question is not how much is given, but how much is taken, because, generally,
only a little part is taken of what is given.

every ordinary occupation in life can become work If one tries to apply the ideas of the work, then, little by little, whatever one does becomes work

For instance, the possibility, by self-remembering, of increasing our consciousness. This immediately becomes practical And there are many other things

Q. Does work on oneself gather momentum after a time or remain equally difficult, like pushing a cart uphill?
A I think it becomes more difficult, because it comes to more and more ramifications You start on one line, then after some time you work on three Lines, and each of them divides and divides, and all the time requires attention and effort There is no momentum there On the other hand, one acquires more energy, becomes more conscious, and that makes it easier in a sense But, by itself, work cannot become easier.

Struggle with false personality is also necessary; because of false personality we can find nothing This means that a certain change is necessary but not a big change

I remember a conversation with Mr Gurdjieff many years ago.

He put it in a very simple form. He said: ‘One can be useful to oneself; one can be useful to other people; one can be useful to me’ He represented the school. That describes the three lines of work. And he added; ‘If one is only useful to oneself and cannot be useful to me or to other people, it will not last long’.
