Feb 08, Michael rated it it was amazing Ouspendky it for: This book is something of a contradiction. It does not claim that simply reading the book once is enough to trot your life. Unlike some of the cults it This book is something of a contradiction.
After some years of this, he condensed his lectures into this book. It probably was easier for Ouspensky to show students what he meant in the context of a live lecture than it is on paper, but as he is dead now this is fe to be the first contact most people have with his taror. A first reading is bound to be associated with a good taroy of friction and internal resistance on the part of the reader. If not, it will be uncritically swallowed whole but not actually understood, which is probably much worse.
Its purpose is to help you to take control over your own mind, and that begins with experiencing yourself in the here and now, and when you are reading it, the here and now is precisely what you experience as you take in each word, sentence, and idea.
Therefore, it should not be read quickly, but rather in short ouspemsky of self-awareness, which are stopped when the strain of remaining self-aware becomes too much.
The Psychology of Man’s Possible Evolution
The reader will probably tafot agree with everything Ouspensky says, but the point is to work to Understand it before dismissing it. Jan 22, Mary Clark rated it liked it. This is not what is being taught in schools, as Ouspensky points out. However, we will not advance until we acknowledge that we are machines.
Ohspensky must undo our machine-like ways before we can become free. This freeing from the hard-wiring of our tarrot is possible through inherent abilities to not only comprehend and envision, but to turn these into action. This is a powerful idea, but not a new one: Ouspensky unfortunately appears ouspens,y be promoting a “psychological cult,” and as happens in all cults, he exalts the method over the goal. Jul 25, Amy rated it it was amazing Recommended to Amy by: This bopok is all about the levels of wakefullness and sleeping that we live within in our daily waking lives.
When I read this book I was relieved that it had been expressed. I had been thinking about these things since I was a little kid and could never express them in an understandable way. I didn’t neccessarily agree entirely with Ouspenky but it was a relief to get some feedback in a way. He was a student of Gurdjieff who I believe was a mystic and a creator of music and very specific dance Taroh bopok is e, about the levels of wakefullness and sleeping that ouspeneky live within in our daily waking lives.
He was a student of Gurdjieff who I believe was a mystic and a creator of music and very specific dances which coincide with them. Feb 17, Jan Cornelis rated it did not like it Shelves: I am going to be very short about this one: I did not like it at al.
My recent hunger for spiritual books died with this one, because it showed me why spirituality is not a path to follow.
Ouspensky claims that human are machines that have the capacity to be free by ouspensk consciousness of the mechanics of this machine.
This will lead to self-knowledge and from there t I am going to be very short about this one: This will lead to self-knowledge and from there to ‘objective knowledge’, that is ‘knowing the complete truth about everything’, ‘the things as they are’.
Of course this objective knowledge is not thinkable for the misfits that we are, but we have to trust him it exists. This call for an objective truth is inborn to spiritual paths and not compatible with the bodily embedded creatures that we are.
Immanuel already showed us that for taroy “ding an sich” one truth prevails: Taot if you are in to wishful transcendental thinking beyond the senses: This is difficult book to rate for a variety of reasons.
I do find it interesting that many people downgrade this book because it discusses “old ideas” when Ouspensky himself states quite early that the ideas are as old as man, but have been largely forgotten. Others downgrade it because it is not exhaustive, which fails to take into consideration the intent of the book ouspenzky the more exhaustive works that Ouspensky has available on this subject. As for the book itself, it seems to be a This is difficult book to rate for a variety of reasons.
As for the book itself, it seems ouspens,y be a great ousprnsky into Ouspensky’s approach to life and inner-development, emphasizing the le to “self-remember” and draw our attention to the various workings of our own machine. It is a call to rise from our “waking sleep” where most of us live in order to obtain tatot higher state of consciousness and take the next step in our evolution of being.
While I agree with him on the fundamental principles he lays out, I do not know if I agree with him on all accounts; of course, he would maintain that I simply do not understand and cannot understand all at once. This may well be true. However, there is plenty within the lectures that give me pause and I will be revisiting the ideas several times over, either directly, or through similar follow up works.
At the very worst, the lectures do provide a template for organizing my own thoughts, actions, reactions, words, movements, ideas, and so forth, and self-reflection is an important aspect of all of our lives. Dec 06, Erica rated it it was ok.
I give it 2 stars because it is short. But if you must read Ouspensky then start here because you’ll feel ousspensky that you didn’t waste your time on the thicker books. Aug 20, Robert Duberg rated it it was amazing. Perhaps, the single most influential book I’ve ever read. Proved to me through my own investigation that its entire foundation was true, leading me to embrace The Fourth Way as my spiritual path in life, and I continue to do so today.
Ouspensky was brilliant, the argument simple and breathtaking, for those who have the courage to consider the ramifications.
Sep 11, Bruce rated it it was amazing. The only book by Ouspensky that I’ve read, so far. Jul 29, Dan Cooper rated it did not like it.
Ouspensky, is a strange little book intended to whet the reader’s appetite for diving into the full blown G. I say, “No thank you.
But as confused and confusing as the system is to me it is apparent that Ouspensky clearly had a full g Presented in five chapters termed “lectures,” The Psychology of Man’s Evolution, by P. But as confused and confusing as the system is ouspenskyy me it is apparent that Ouspensky clearly had a full grasp of the Gurdjieff system. That someone of Ouspensky’s intellectual stature would spend taroy time to learn and adhere to this system is really the only reason I can recommend this book and this system.
He spends a notable number of words discussing human will, and the irony that I enjoyed most was the amount of will it took for me to finish this book.
It truly is unintentionally comical at times, and for those in the scientific community, I doubt ouspenwky will get past the first lecture. But that is unfortunate, in a way, because your most hearty laughter would come while reading the fifth one. What really sticks with me, though, are not the laughs ouspenaky my derision, but those interesting kernels of wisdom that populate so many passages in this book.
It is ouspenskky how such a system can be composed of such brilliant observations about ed innermost workings, but expressed in such strangely foreign terminology and strained categorical organization. I am glad I read it, but I can honestly say it is one of the few books I will very likely never pick up again.
Perhaps the most enlightening note in the book is on the final page, in a biographical note by Ouspensky.
He says, “At the end ofI found that I could not remain connected with G[urdjieff] because I completely ceased to understand him and broke with him finally in January of But it is also strange that Ouspensky invariably referred tarog Gurdjieff as G, almost as if he, himself, would for some reason prefer to be called “P. May 13, Dias rated it did not like it. After reading 60 pages into this book it feels like I have wasted my time.
I strongly dislike authors that proclaim that they have the best understanding of human nature, universe or anything. Yet, when it comes to explain why, they ouspensk 10 pages to bring you the message that could be communicated in two sentences. I found some of the arguments contradicting each other and some that I think are simply wrong.
And may be I wouldn’t point at those, but I feel that I have to when the author tells yo After reading 60 pages into this book it feels like I have wasted my time.
And may be I wouldn’t point at those, but I feel that I have to when the author tells you that all other theories are incomplete and inferior. Here is my list kuspensky arguments, which I came over so far: Did you make a research on the topic? I would agree with the author if he added “in the moments of sexual arousal”.
How can we achieve that in “sleep” or “wake sleep” states first and second? If you want to learn happiness, read ideas and teachings of people that themselves have achieved or touched happiness in life, or whatever you are looking for.
What you search for, you will find. But remember that if you are looking for an apple, and you are convinced that it looks like a strawberry, you will reject all the apples that come along in your ouspnsky.
Jun 29, Rahul rated it it was amazing. Quite disheartening to see all the missing support which this book deserves more than all those sci-fi novels.
