The Terror of the Situation
"Unless the wisdom of the East and the energy of the West could be
harnessed and used harmoniously, the world would be destroyed."
— G. I. Gurdjieff —
We are witnessing a frightening worldwide onslaught against humanity and the environment, and many of us are wondering how one should respond. The little that I can do may be insignificant but the combined actions of those who can make such efforts - efforts which each of us must be responsible for - is our only hope of transforming the existing madness into a more sane, just and peaceful society.
Anyone watching television or surfing the Internet cannot deny the tremendous chaos in our world and the devastation to our planetary environment. Ideals such as humanity, community, brotherly love, and civilization seem to have lost all sense of their higher meaning. There is scarcely an industry or government immune from the cancer of corruption, lying, self-delusion and violence that is directly attributable to the deep sleep of man.
Much of the news is slanted towards a particular or limited point of view that promotes the business, religious, racial or political interests of one group at the expense of others. Much of news reporting is, at its best, incomplete, not the "whole picture," and at its worst, propaganda our pure fabrication.
The video and article links below may or may not be relevant to your present worldview. They certainly caught my attention, simply because they reveal such a grotesque level of mechanical and malevolent being on this planet, the consequences of which threaten the very existence of society as we know it, and quite possibly, human life on Earth.
Hopefully, adding this material to the GurdjieffWork.com website will be productive - in the sense that these materials not only stress the importance of, but also to encourage us all to continue walking the path of the Fourth Way.
The following impressions are offered - as stated in the Work - "shocks" which may awaken us out of our deep sleep. Hopefully, these shocks will not result in one becoming overwhelmed to the point of being overtaken by a sense of dread, fear or anxiety, which inevitably leads to inaction, or worse, thinking and actions which disharmonize rather than harmonize our inner and outer worlds. It is important that one not become identified with the picture these articles and videos paint regarding the state of our world. Simply observe while being present to your thoughts, feelings and physical sensations.
History proves that no individual, government, or teaching can resurrect our world or save humanity from itself, at least without our participation. This is not to say that certain individuals or spiritual and psychological teachings do not possess the wisdom needed to save ourselves, but rather, that if any significant transformation or improvement in the quality of life for all of humanity is to be realized, mankind must awaken to what he is doing to the planet and to each other.
The transformation of our world depends on the transformation of the individual. Each of us must come to the realization that if we do not awaken and become active participants in the transformation of our world, certainly we are doomed to experience another world war, and possibly extinction.
"Modern man is battered by the elemental forces of his own psyche. At any moment several millions of human beings may be smitten with a new madness, and then we shall have another world war or devastating revolution."
— C. G. Jung —
None of us can take the burden of the world upon his or her shoulders. However, what good does it to become spiritually awakened yet do nothing to help your fellow man awaken, or to help ease the divisions of class, culture and race through our own example of living an awakened and enlightened life? It is my hope that the information provided throughout the GurdjieffWork.com website assists in this transformation for current and future generations.
If we continue our present trajectory, it is difficult to imagine that there will be any path for humanity to travel, at least with our essence and humanity intact. If we neglect coming to the realization that we are all members of one global community, one humanity, we will slip into the abyss of yet another world war. Imagine what that will be like in light of the murderous technologies that been developed since the last world war. If man on this planet does not change his being, we may well be headed down the path so tragically portrayed in the following videos. What happens when self-defense is against the law? What happens when the protectors become the predators? Warning: Graphic Violence. These disturbing videos clearly demonstrate the consequences of centralizing government power and disarming citizens. Genocide always follows, leaving millions of innocent victims dead.

The Trap: We Will Force You To Be Free
"If a man could understand all the horror of the lives of ordinary people who are turning round in a circle of insignificant interests and insignificant aims, if he could understand what they are losing, he would understand that there can only be one thing that is serious for him: to escape from the general law, to be free. What can be serious for a man in prison who is condemned to death? Only one thing: how to save himself, how to escape. Nothing else is serious."— G.I. Gurdjieff
"To sacrifice intellectual integrity, love of truth, the laws
and methods of thought to any other interest, is treason."
— Hermann Hesse —
I am a seeker of truth who is trying to understand the world in which I exist, the causes of disharmony on our planet, and the significance of the life of man, God and the Universe.
If we are not aware to the true situation we are facing, how can one know how to respond in meeting the many crisis facing humanity and not become violent or complacent in the midst of our surroundings? Not only must we awaken the spirit of love in our hearts, each of us must clearly understand the nature and objective root causes of the madness of society. We must not remain blind or naive to what is taking place all around us. We must education ourselves - and others - if there is any chance of creating an awakening among sufficient numbers of people to alter the course of our current trajectory.
I do not necessarily agree with or endorse all of the views presented in these articles and videos, however many of the views expressed seem credible to me. We are all, in a sense, investigators of our world. And while we as individuals may not agree with everything presented here, I fully support freedom of thought and speech as well as the quest for truth. Verification is of utmost importance; therefore I encourage anyone delving into these issues to conduct their own research with an open yet critical mind.
I welcome any and all clarifications, corrections, additions, and comments that may be given by readers to improve this page.

"If we can fundamentally alter, bring about a radical revolution in ourselves, inwardly, then there is a possibility of creating a different world, a different set of values."

Introduction to the Terror of the Situation
What Might These Signs Indicate?
WHY have the "elites" and governments worldwide constructed super underground vaults to store seeds from all over the planet, yet continue to introduce genetically modified seeds to grow food they themselves won't touch?
WHY have they built secret underground bases?
WHY are we not being informed of the facts about Fukushima radiation spreading across the globe, or about the EPA monitors being shut off, and the [acceptable] standards re-calibrated while the media continues the blackout?
WHY are those who question water fluoridation considered as "conspiracy nuts", and validated scientific studies testifying to the dangers of fluoride labeled as "quackery", while millions drink this toxic industrial by-product, and most European countries as well as increasing numbers of state and local municipalities passing [of have passed] legislation to remove fluoride from their drinking water?
WHY does the pharmaceutical industry relentlessly push vaccines down our throats when they have conclusively been proven to maim and kill children and adults, while one in every 110 children are being diagnosed with autism?
WHY are cellphones and other EMF technologies deliberately set at the range of our brain frequency when they could have been set at less dangerous levels?
WHY does the banking system and the banksters get a free pass while everyone knows they engineered the economic meltdown of the countries of the world?
WHY is the perpetual "war on terror" so readily accepted in light of the fact that it was based on a staged false premise ... clearly a government induced false flag ... that no one is allowed to challenge?"
WHY does the educational system continue to turn out dumb and duller kids instead of more creative and truly intelligent students, and why do we continue to pour money into this fruitless endeavor?
WHY is so much of the population so overweight that they can't see their feet anymore and are suffering accelerated, off-the-charts health challenges?
WHY is questioning anything that the government and police state does defined as a terrorist threat?
WHY is the atmosphere filled with aluminum and other toxic substances, while respiratory illnesses, including seizures, allergies and Alzheimer's continue to skyrocket?
WHY has going through the airport, which includes radioactive exams and illegal invasive pat-downs become such a terrorizing experience for children and the elderly?
WHY is the government "legally" authorized to spy on citizens at will, arrest, imprison and even kill American citizens without formal charges or trial?
WHY does the controlled-media continue to spew out the exact same stories [lies and propaganda] on every media channel with literally NO independent reporting or investigative journalism?
WHY is our DNA being tracked, our irises scanned, blood tested and movements monitored on every street corner?
WHY is the world-wide fiat currency being squeezed out of existence?
WHY is every county and U. S. federal agency registered as a company on the Securities and Stock Exchange?
WHY does the U. S. government allow Israel to slowly exterminate the people of Palestine?
WHY is "national security" a blanket excuse to hide everything of importance from the American people?
WHY does the government continue to dismantle the Constitution, and why do they want to disarm the American people?
WHY do so many sit idly by while all of this continues to accelerate?
