A dispassionate look at an established Foundation Gurdjieff group around the turn of the 21st Century. Lots of comparison with Nisargadatta and other sources.

“We shall not cease from explorationAnd the end of all our exploringWill be to arrive where we startedAnd know the place for the first time.Through the unknown, unremembered gateWhen the last of earth left to discover Is that which was the beginning;At the source of the longest river The voice of the hidden waterfallAnd the children in the apple-tree Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillnessBetween two waves of the sea.Quick now, here, now, always— A condition of complete simplicity(Costing not less than everything)And all shall be well andAll manner of thing shall be wellWhen the tongues of flame are in-foldedInto the crowned knot of fireAnd the fire and the rose are one.”
-T. S. Eliot, “Four Quartets,” “Quartet No. 4: Little Gidding" (end of Stanza 5)
The poetry above is far better than the entire essay that follows.
