“Only-he-will-be-called-and-will-become-the-Son-of-God-who-acquires-in-himself-Conscience.” Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson, p.368
Now that the spirit of Christmas is approaching, it is appropriate to mentate on the deep meaning of this event.
The Son of God is born! The Son of God is born of a Virgin. Only if I am Virgin can the Son of God be born in me. How am I Virgin? When I am without images I am Virgin. Only in whom who is without images the Son of God is born. What is Virgin, that has not been touched and contaminated, is the subconsciousness. The Son of God is born in the subconsciousness. The subconsciousness is the Real Consciousness. So the real question is: How to do or not to do in order that the subconsciousness participates in our everyday life? That is the question. In the subconsciousness is stored the data necessary for engendering in us the “Divine impulse of genuine objective conscience.” Participation of this Divine impulse in our everyday ordinary life is now the only way that can bring us back to normality. This is the central message of Ashiata Shiemash and the very essence of the teaching of Mr. Gurdjieff, as I now understand it.
Merry Christmas to all!
