G. GURDJIEFF
THE HERALD OFCOMINGGOOD
FIRST APPEALTO CONTEMPORARY HUMANITY
PARIS
1933
 
Contrary to the established custom, I shall not only 
permit this first 
book 
of 
mine 
as 
well 
as 
the 
books 
of the first series, to be reprinted in any country,but, if necessary, I am willing to subsidize it, on the 
condition of course that absolute accuracy is preserved.
G. GURDJIEFF.
 
***
Inspired as I am by a deep conviction, springing from a longline of experimental elucidations and deductions pointing to theconclusion that, if a man desires sincerely and seriously, and outof no mere curiosity, to attain to the knowledge of the way leading
to
Real Being, and
if 
he
fulfils
to
this end all that
is
requestedof him and begins, in fact, among other things to aid indirectly,and from his very first step, the attainment of this by others, hewill, by this act alone, become as it were the forming ground forthe real data contributing to the manifestation of objective andactual Good; and animated as I am by the general intention oarriving finally, by means of my literary arguments and publicdemonstrations proposed for the near future of experimental elucidations, at the instilling into the consciousness of my contemporaries
of 
several such
"psychic-initiative"
factors as
in
my opinion as well as in that of every man capable of a little impartialmeditation ought inevitably to act as guiding principles in theconsciousness of all creatures presuming to call themselves "God-
Like",
of 
such
"initiative"
factors, namely, as should certainlyinclude the factor inducing men both to react instinctively and,upon reflection, to realize clearly the moral obligation to helpone's neighbour,—I have now decided upon the very act of selling and of spreading far and wide the contents of this first of my writings intended to head the list of my publications anddirected, by the fulfilment of the task originally imposed uponmyself, to initiate of itself in man's consciousness the formationof the aforesaid and, for the communal life of people, important
"psychic"
factor.
