The courage to love is the sweetest surrender of the three primary powers of mind—memory, projection, and imagination. These powers of mind are the reflective consciousness that create a very powerful illusion that betrays or hides the living truth of you. The courage to love is the willingness to see through the lie of you to discover directly, intimately, the truth of you.

This week on SOTT Talk Radio we're joined again by William Patrick Patterson. Listeners can hear the first part of our interview with Mr. Patterson here. After many years as a student of The Fourth Way and discovering no answer to the question that had gradually formed in him—what is the 'self' in self-remembering?—Mr. Patterson was called to explore Advaita Vedanta (non-dualism). In doing so, he realized the full significance of the ideas and practices of The Fourth Way and how this sacred and seminal teaching provided not only the necessary foundation, but was applicable on the very highest levels.
Mr. Patterson is the founder/director of The Gurdjieff Studies Program and has led groups, as well as given seminars and talks, throughout the United States for many years. He has written nine books on the teaching, including Struggle of the Magicians, and has directed, written and narrated the award-winning video trilogy The Life & Significance of George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, and the just-released video Introduction to Gurdjieff's Fourth Way: From Selves to Individual Self to The Self. Mr. Patterson's latest book is Georgi Ivanovitch Gurdjieff: The Man, The Teaching, His Mission.
Tune in this Sunday November 30th, 2014 from 2-3pm EST (11-12am PST / 8-9pm CET/ 7-8pm UTC) for another enlightening discussion on the meaning of all and everything.
The Super Ego is the invisible whip that you use to torture yourself with negative thoughts and beliefs about yourself, other people and your circumstances. Seeing through this whip lives in discovering the source of the Super Ego.

This is not a political or theological or even a national discussion—it is much closer to the bone? What happens when you are willing to deeply examine the terrorist inside of yourself? Who is the terrorist really? This conversation is intimate, uncomfortable, awkward, and can evoke the rage, fear, and profoundly deep despair that is often hidden underneath. In meeting this hell directly, intimately, this collective insanity or this shadow that can lurk in your own mind as well as the collective mind, can reveal the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Join us for our weekly online Satsang.
This week, we are discussing the Tao Te Ching, chapters 24-26.
