Foremost occultist analyzes certain older schools of thought, of both East and West, connects them with modern ideas and explains them in the light of 20th-century discoveries and speculations in physics and philosophy. Fascinating discussions of relativity, the fourth dimension, Christian symbolism, the tarot, yoga, dreams and more. Stimulating and thought-provoking.

I found this book to be the best of almost all of the books on or by Gurdjief or ouspensky regarding this system.Many inspiring ideas on maintaining a practice in daily life circa 1930. I found the first half of this book to be worthwhile. There is some strange and tedious parts that seem self righteous and dated..Well worth the read for those passionate about awareness practice, raja yoga , suffic teaching and vajrayana practice. it makes some good sense but takes itself too seriously.
