[GURDJIEFF] “All religious teachings consist of two parts, the visible and the hidden. To be disappointed in religion means being disappointed in the visible, and to feel the necessity for finding the hidden and unknown part of religion.”i

In our age, we don’t obviously associate ‘religion’ with ‘teaching’………

. we associate going to church with an expression of faith, to receive moral instruction, or perhaps simply as a form of socializing. These outer or exoteric layers always existed, but beneath them lay a deeper inner, esoteric layer of learning. You had to penetrate through the outer layer to arrive at the inner one.
