Weekly Saying of Substance
— G.I. Gurdjieff

G.I. Gurdjieff, Fourth Way, self-transformation
Good & Evil

A subjective man can have no general concept of good and evil. For a subjective man evil is everything that is opposed to his desires or interests or to his conception of good. One may say that evil does not exist for subjective man at all, that there exist only different conceptions of good. Nobody ever does anything deliberately in the interests of evil, for the sake of evil. Everybody acts in the interests of good, as he understands it. But everybody understands it in a different way. Consequently men drown, slay, and kill one another in the interests of good.

A New Saying from G.I. Gurdjieff is posted each Monday.
