a method not taught in books

It is not enough to say ‘Know thyself’ and it is always a shock to be told about one’s dark side, for we do not wish to see it.

Gurdjieff’s system provides a technique,’ said Orage. ‘You can be told of your faults for years, but unless you make the right kind of effort yourself, you will remain the same. His system has a method not taught in books, by which you can learn little by little how to make this effort to know yourself, but you must be prepared to work for a long time—for years, perhaps—and there will be long periods when nothing seems to happen and nothing in oneself seems to change.’
