Stairway To The Stars

STAIRWAY TO THE STARS: Sufism, Gurdjieff and the Inner Tradition of Mankind

Stairway to the stars

From time immemorial, certain men and women appear to have developed their consciousness far beyond the “normal” level or state which the rest of humanity has taken for granted as “life”. These are the mystics. They are of all times and places, of the East as well as the West.

The true mystics are not culture-bound. They have gone “beyond”. They may well have to take into consideration the prevailing culture for purposes of communication.

But their message is for mankind. Or more accurately, for those human beings who are seeking, those who will listen. In the words of one mystical master, “those who have ears to hear”. It is the ultimate human message, from ultimate human beings. It is the deep calling to the deep in us. If our hearts can but hear!

“An inspiring and instructive introduction to the nature of mystical development and esoteric endeavour…lucid and luminous”
Edward Campbell, author of “People of the Secret” (under the name of Edward Scott), former literary editor of the “London Evening Standard”.

“A powerful and poetic summons to the stairway within…as helpful as it is compelling.”
Colin Wilson, author of “The Outsider” and “The Occult”
