Format: Paperback
The deep thought of Swedenborg and the practical ideas of Gurdjieff combine to show how our inner life creates our world. Change the inner and you change the outer. But how? Peter Rhodes gives some of the "hows" in this clearly written guide to ruling ourselves.

This book would be valuable simply for the coverage of Swedenborg and the Gurdjieff work, which intially seems like an unlikely combination. Peter Rhodes provides a seamless integration of these two approaches, and the book serves as a useful introduction to both. However, the strength of the book is the valuable presentation of a practical approach to spirituality in everyday life. In particular, this book emphasizes waking up to our present experience out of the sleep of habitual patterns, using self-remembering to transcend negativity, and staying focused on our spiritual aim in order to use everyday experience to grow spiritually. Rhodes provides clear theoretical understanding along with useful practical exercises.

Our local spiritual transformation "Work" group used this text as a practice guide for study in 2006-2007. It is a synthesis of the work of Gurdjieff/Nicoll, and Immanuel Swedenborg. Rhodes presents his lessons in very easy to read and practice manner.
I found this guide book for a group Spiritual Practice to be of great worth and help.

This book is one which I will read many times and use as a reference book in my attempts to understand thoughts, actions or behaviors that I have either had, or have wished that I had had! I think my friend will also be interested in the concepts explored in the book .
