    Hello Edwin What is the nature of your projects in Kieni?

    he learned more from Gurdjieff from wathicng his back in a sauna than anything he ever said to him. I find that idea interesting, that a master can impart something to you more directly if you are open to receive it. That something can bypass all the usual hullabaloo and penetrate deeply into the body.There's an amazing interview with Segal where he describes meeting G.He says, I’ll never forget him. He made the biggest impression on me. It wasn’t what he said. I don’t remember much what he said. But he was an astonishing force when he walked in. He just came in and looked at people and sized them up and you just felt something very, very different. He was a man who radiated something. Something very great, and at the same time, very kind—very strong and very kind. I would say that he must have been in touch with something that most people are not in touch with. And he had a gift, a faculty, of making your time stop. Everything would stop. And one would have sort of a picture, a panoramic view of oneself.You felt that there was something beyond the life that we know that was going on around him. And you wanted to be part of that. And it’s nothing you can speak about or put into words easily.INTERVIEWER: From what I’m hearing there was a sense of presence that he had that cut through our normal thought patterns.It was beyond the sensing of the material or the form. One could experience that there is another energy/vibration which we’re not ordinarily in touch with. In his presence you felt this presence/vibration and you didn’t know what it was.You felt the truth that you are not you, and things are not what they seem, and perhaps we have things upside down. We only see the surface of the form. And with him you felt that. You felt a new light in the life that we knew around him.Pretty fascinating account. The full interview can be read .As for the .gif image, I found it on the internet somewhere during my relentless surfing activities. I didn't know how to create them, but thanks to your question I discovered how to do it this morning. There's a wonderfully easy tutorial on You Tube on how to do it You will need Adobe Image Ready for this, but I'm sure there's other software that will do the job.Thanks for the comment.
