George Gurdjieff was a Russian Philosopher, Spiritual Teacher, and Mystic of the 19th Century. He was of Greek descendent. His key area of interest was raising Consciousness level and getting Awakened. He prefers a method of Yogi (Indian Spiritual Yoga Practioner) to awaken the consciousness level.

He was called an “Enlightened being” of his time.

“Without self knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave.”

According to Gurdjieff, the meaning of life is to raise our consciousness level and experience the being within us. The journey of awakening is not easy as it sounds, it will have many hurdles, but when you see Awareness within you, it’s all worth it. The purpose of life is not limited to the mind it also has to do with our feelings and instinct.

For Gurdjieff, every being in every species are equal and precious.
