Psychic Abilities

Can we develop psychic powers like Gurdjieff and Ouspensky described?

Like telepathy, remote viewing and clairvoyance, etc.?


Certainly. Even the CIA has a school to teach those things.

As far as I am concerned it is the same as it is with the pursuit or study of higher dimensions. It has no relation to the pursuit of Self-Knowledge.

In the early stages is is very exciting to discover things that are not “normal” and they are usually labeled super-natural.

Like anything in the manifestation it can be an object of identification. And because those powers are so cool the potential for identification is great. It can be like a drug.

The fact that psychic powers can be an obstacle or a detour to spirituality is not my idea. It is documented in old spiritual traditions in the East. Meher Baba expounds about this eloquently in his “Discourses”. Gurdjieff found out about this the hard way, apparently.

So, yes we can develop them. If that is one’s calling, by all means, go for it.
