Is there forgiveness?
In the Gurdjieff work, Fellowship or Foundation, I do not recall hearing the word forgiveness.
How did, or how would Gurdjieff speak of forgiveness? He talked of self remembering, sensations of the body, and such.
Are there steps to forgiveness?
Firstly is there any specific way to deal with internal sadness, or is it more a very special and personal journey that's different for everyone that God helps with?
Secondly once I've overcome it, what do I become?
There is a fear there of if I'm not hyper-responsible, who/what am I? How do I define myself? What do I become?
Do I get closer to discovering my true self, finding God within, will a path open up as I walk?
or does another personality trait take over, a more positive one?
And again is this something that has methods of dealing with, or is this that very personal journey that's different for everyone.
I see that you are a disciple of Jesus Christ . I would like to know The Truth , The Life , and The Way .
I am seeking to build a personal relationship with Him , in a real way .
I'm finding it pretty tough . He said that the path leading to the door is narrow and that the only way to the Father is through Him.
Do you feel that you can help me with this please?
Can you help me understand how one reconciles the concept of living life true to your own heart, if following that truth in your life comes in conflict with what you know to be morally considered wrong.
How does one navigate during these times in life, (except as with all things careful prayerfulness)? I have experienced more than a few things/times in my life that I did not "follow my heart" on, or be true to my inner feelings about something affecting my relationship situations. As I ever tread forward in life I keep noticing the rule about following one's own heart as supremely important.
Does this shift one's happiness factor for the positive any more so than just struggling along trying to live by what one understands as Divine laws, rules, guidance?
I have been suffering from stress and anxiety and I know some of this has been triggered by people problems within my team. My manager knows about this and he knows I have been seeing a therapist. Nevertheless he is pushing me towards this role. Considering the problems I have been experiencing I am dubious about why he believes I am suitable. Talking to a friend today he believes the manager has his own agenda. Probably wants to free himself of managing the difficult people directly and developing his own career. He suggests I should be careful about his motives. It never occurred to me that this man who knows my vulnerabilities would put me in jeopardy to further his own agenda. Has my friend helped me to see behind the mask. I cannot believe a person would do this however it is a tough world and people will do what they have to do, I guess to get on. Is this a cynical view ofpeople. Or is it realistic - what we all need to do? Our very nature that cannot be changed because we should accept this is the world we live in? I said to my friend I will be honest with the manager and ask him directly but he warned me not to. He said honesty would not help my career in this world.
