Hold On to the Way

It is impossible to become free from one influence without becoming subject to another. The whole thing, all work on oneself, consists in choosing the influence you which to subject yourself, and actually falling under this influence. And for this it is necessary to know beforehand which influence is the more profitable.
(G. I. Gurdjieff)

Religion isn't very popular these days. We prefer to be "spiritual" instead, whatever that means. Yet, the literal meaning of the word religion means to hold onto. Perhaps the problem with the olden concept of religion was that a few "enlightened" folks wanted to tell the masses what to do. That's not working any longer. We all need to hold on to something very unique and specific - we need to walk our own spiritual path. Yet, holding on we must, just as G. I. Gurdjieff discovered before. You can believe in a random, karmic universe, or you can believe in a divine connection - the choice is yours, and either way you will be right.

So we encourage you to hold on to the miraculous, the infinite. The signposts are easy to find, they are love and light. You may ask, so how exactly do I find this Force. Well, the Way shows in the opposite direction of narrow-mindedness, egoism, scarcity, hate and dis-trust. Make it a life goal to communicate with this Force and you can't miss it. Every step of the Way you will have something to hold onto, and it is bound to be a lot of fun.
