American??? Mysticism

 It suddenly occurs to me that my blog title could be confusing. As if I thought there were distinctions to note and classify within "the experience." My intent was to reference Gurdjieff, (quoted by Ouspensky) when he spoke about the future of the Work, and a movement he saw from Russia through Europe and on.

Part of the Mystery

 There is something to which the Work, (as the 20th century called it), points. Something that is rarely directly discussed, and now I wonder if I should elaborate. I refer to the "how", the how of self-observation. And I wonder why, this, the most important thing, is superficially neglected. I say most important thing, even though some could argue the results were the most important. The "how" makes it possible. I do not know the answer.
