#5. Psychology of Sleep


In this episode in our search for ‘the miraculous’ - the reality that lies behind the reality that we take for the whole and only reality - we first have to get a better view of what is hindering us from getting access to the ‘miraculous’. The system of ‘The fourth Way’, teaches us that man is asleep and not conscious of his thoughts, feelings and actions. It is useful to remember that this is exactly the inner meaning of many ancient doctrines, best known to us in Christianity and the Gospel teaching, in which, the idea that man lives in sleep and first of all must awake, is the basis of all the explanations of human life. The Gospel teaching also demands awakening, but it does not say how to awaken.

The main idea of the system on how to free yourself from sleep, is to become fully aware of your state of sleep. Therefore it is needed to have a better and more refined understanding...

Mechanical Man will not begin this work and will not consider it necessary unless he becomes convinced that he does not possess self-consciousness and that, in order to acquire anything of value, he can not rely on his will . The manyfold of contradictory ‘I’s that governs his minute to minute actions is not the kind of will that can accomplish anything outside the boundaries of his state of sleep. Real will is consistent over time and is a function of a so called permanent ‘I’, an ‘I’ that is able to separate the mechanical ‘I’s from the “work I’s” and organise them in a group of ‘I’s that has some power and directed attention. That’s the beginning.

Man has to understand two things. First he is a sleep. Second; he needs a method to wake up from sleep. It is vital to understand that no one can escape from sleep on his own....

#19. Psychology of Being

The root of all human issue’s is a lack of understanding. We do not, and are not, able to understand one another. The big problem again, is the pretence that we believe we do understand one another or that it is even possible to understand one another. The system tells us quit clearly that ordinary man, man as he is, can not understand one another although he thinks he can. Why is that?

In order for man to be able to understand each other, he has to learn that there are two sides of him that must be developed, that is, the development of ‘knowledge’ and ‘being’. True understanding can not be a function of just knowledge. Knowing more doesn’t mean one understands more. Understanding is the product of the simultaneous development of knowledge and being.

First of all there is the lack of self-knowledge, man does not know himself. Different levels of knowledge is a well know...

#18. Psychology of Self Remembering

 What are our chances for acquiring a higher state of consciousness? What are our possibilities for change? Do we stand a change to conquer our mental pitfalls or are we stuck with who we are?

We have a certain control over our movements but can we also attain the same kind of control over our thoughts, let alone emotions? Anyone with a little self-knowledge knows how hard it is to permanently change oneself. It can be done but this needs special training, very much time and the study of very elaborate exercises. Under normal conditions we can have some control over our thoughts, and the development of our consciousness. The mind is by far the most obedient to our will; that is, our mind, or the intellectual centre, so we have to start from there.

We have no direct control over most of our instinctive functions nor do we have much control over our emotions. We have no direct control over our...

#17. Psychology of Emotions

 In this lecture we are going to dive into the world of emotions. Like we have learned in the previous lecture, emotional centre is by far the quickest centre of all and therefore very much responsible for most of our actions.

Because of it’s speed, it controls most of our decisions, which do not always lead to the most sensible thing to do. It is exactly because of this tremendous speed of operation that emotional centre accounts for most of our personal difficulties. We are far more emotional than anyone of us want to admit. We all want to be perceived as being sensible. Being emotional can make us impulsive, much like an animal, constantly responding to outside stimuli and basic drives. Therefore Personal Transformation starts by transforming the ‘wrong’ work of the emotional centre by ‘right’ work of the intellectual centre.

#16. Psychology of Time

The relativity of time, space and matter is a scientific conversation best known for what Einstein coined to the matter, expressed in his theory of general relativity. As one comes to study the system some other very interesting esoteric points of view come into the picture and can evoke some additional transformations in the way you perceive yourself in relation to these phenomena. As you will soon discover in studying the centres, which are hidden from us, their functions are quite open for our investigation.

Functions are the phenomena by which we are able to identify the work of the different centres and by observing these functions we will notice some remarkable properties, which until now, have never been fully taken into account by traditional psychology or physiology.

Observation is the usual course in the scientific approach in physics, chemistry, astronomy, physiology, as when we often cannot...

#15. Psychology of Impressions

All that happens to us, all that we see, all that we hear, all that we feel, all that we learn is registered in our mental decorum. In the time of Ouspensky the first of phonographic recording were made on wax rolls. The sensory input from our five senses leaves a definite imprint on the ‘wax rolls’ in our being.. An impression can be deep, or it can be very slight, or it can be simply a glancing impression that disappears very quickly and leaves no trace after it.Everything that we know, everything that we have learned, everything that we have experienced is all there on our rolls. When we are thinking mechanically we can think of nothing new, nothing that is not on our rolls. When we feel mechanically we can’t feel anything new, we only relive the emotional imprints that are recorded on these rolls.

These rolls act like a database. We cannot event anything new outside of our...

#14. Psychology of Lines of Work

Working according to the principles of the system is that the work of a real school of ‘The Fourth Way’ needs to proceed along three different lines simultaneously. Working only on one or two lines wouldn’t be considered schoolwork. What are these three lines of work?

The first line is the study of oneself and study of the system, or the 'language.'  It is the line of work that’s all about you getting something for yourself. It is about understanding and learning about yourself via understanding the concepts of the system. It is the line of work of these lectures. Working on this first line certainly s very important but if you only work on the first line you can not expect any result.

The second line of schoolwork is working with other people in the school. One works not only with them but also for them. By explaining and observing one another you are able to acquire a...

#13. Psychology of a Magnetic Centre

‘The Fourth Way’ says human beings are machines but these machines do not perform on its rightful level. Nature delivers us with all the basic functions we need to survive but we need to make a conscious effort to get access to our hidden potential. In short, a human being is far more than it appears to be. In order to develop our hidden potentials we need to be either very strongly repelled by our present state or very strongly attracted by a future state. This is the most fundamental condition for inner change.

Other vital conditions that must be present in order to do the necessary work, is time, a school and the right kind of social circumstances. Schools can not exist when times are to much out of balance by economic depression, natural disasters or wars.


Ouspensky says:

“Our time is particularly difficult in this respect. Schools in the East are disappearing very...

12. Psychology of Wrong Work

The idea is that man is a machine and not one. He is not one in that he has many ‘I’ s  and he is not one in that he does not have one mind. It is not so hard to verify this idea when you start observing your behaviour from the point of view of the system.

One way this ‘lack of unity’ in best seen in the way the different centres work. Every centre is designed to a certain type of work. But centres very rarely do the work they were designed to do. Almost every instance one or another centre leaves his own work and tries to do the work of another centre.

For instance moving centre can, up to a point, imitate the work of intellectual centre, but it can only produce very vague and disconnected thoughts. In its turn, the intellectual centre can work for the moving centre. Try to write, for instance, thinking about every letter you are going to write and how you will write it.
