Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

Back to the topic of Kalushev:

I'm reminded of Gurdjieff (at least the version of Gurdjieff presented in books such as Meetings with Remarkable Men) in three respects: 1. the notion of testing the capacity of one's disciples through an open-ended and dangerous journey 2. demanding large sums of money up front 3. making a radical transformation of one's trajectory on a moment's notice

Perhaps he has some vision in mind for where he's going with this, given that it's not without precedent (at least as it's been described in this thread so far)

I am well aware of my idiocy. I am also very aware that you too are an idiot. Therein lies our mutuality.
