The Law of Accident



Man changes at each moment.
And these changes are produced by exterior shocks,which he can never foresee, as he can never foresee his own interior changes. Thus he goes, carried by the streams of life and by his own mood fluctuations. In his illusory life, ordinary man is governed by the Law of Hazard, or Law of Accident. To escape from its influence, Gurdjieff suggests specific methods — like self-observation, work on oneself (individually and in groups), exercises and movements — so that man can become master of himself.




More useful things
" ... if I could remember myself for long enough, I would make fewer mistakes and I would do more things that are desirables. Now, I wish to remember, but every rustle, every person, every sound distracts my attention, — and I forget." (a Gurdjieff’s pupil) [1]
