“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 subconscious. The Son of God is born in the subconscious. The subconscious is the Real Consciousness. So the real question is: How to do or not to do in order that the subconscious participates in our everyday life? That is the question. In the subconscious 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!

    Merry Christmas to you Will and may all your wishes come true for you and yours! And thank you for all your work that has touched me deeply this past year. Patrick

  5. Dear Will, thank you for your wonderful post regarding the spirit of Christmas. Almost the same sentiment is within the Gospel of Philip, which is my favorite gospel. Although I do not celebrate the secular Christmas, I understand the meaning within, and you have captured it wonderfully. May this season bring to you good cheer and glad tidings, – Richard

  6. Dear Will: Thanks for all the insights you have shared with us during this year! Martin
