THE SHERBORNE THEME TALKS SERIES – # 2 NOTICING
THE SHERBORNE THEME TALKS SERIES – # 2
“Noticing does enter our lives from another dimension or another world. It is one of the simplest ways that influences from a higher world come into this world. Noticing is connected with “I”, with real “I”.”
“Noticing is sudden and timeless. It is not a process of thinking, seeing or handling. Really no time at all is occupied in the transition from not noticing to noticing, because it does not happen along the line of time. It happens in another direction in us.”
“Noticing can be a source of becoming more mechanical and more will less, because there is a line of least resistance which usually takes the form of saying, “I’ll do it tomorrow or some other time”. You do not refuse to do something that you notice could be done, but nearly always what Gurdjieff calls “the disease of tomorrow” comes in: “I can do it better some other time”. This sounds trivial enough until you add up the hundreds of times every day when the opportunity for doing something positive comes and we get caught up simply by failing to notice that it could be done now. It is not a question of being unable or unwilling. Nothing happens, because you miss the moment when it might happen.”
