All and Everything Conference Background
The All and Everything International Humanities Conference is a forum for the presentation and discussion of current studies associated with the writings and work of G. I. Gurdjieff. Ever since the first A&E Conference was held in 1996, resulting from the wish to “try and fathom the gist” of Gurdjieff’s writings as advised by the author himself, the aim has been to provide a common ground for those who wish to explore the teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff, in the spirit of “a gathering of the Companions of his books”: All and Everything: Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson; Meetings with Remarkable Men; Life is Real Only Then, When “I Am”; and The Herald of Coming Good.
Over the years, many of us have found confirmation that, by sharing our questions, insights, and even half-baked notions in a neutral and congenial atmosphere, a wider horizon of understanding and practical incorporation invariably appears.
We share the following excerpt with you:
“I think, my boy, that I have now already fully satisfied your curiosity concerning these ‘dollar fox-trotting’ followers of what is called ‘Christian Science.’
“In the name of objective justice it now only remains for me to remark that whatever they may turn into in the future, I had however during my existence among them the possibility of inwardly resting, and for this I ought now to express to them my sincere thanks.”
“And you, just you, my heir, to whom has already been transmitted and will be transmitted by inheritance everything acquired by me during my long existence–of course only in so far as you yourself will deserve it by your own conscientious being-existence and honorable service to the ALL-COMMON FATHER MAINTAINER, our ENDLESSNESS—I command you, if you happen for some reason or other to be on the planet Earth, to visit without fail the city of New York, or if by that time this city should no longer exist, then at least stop at that place where it was situated and to utter aloud:
“’In this place, my beloved grandfather, my just Teacher Beelzebub pleasantly passed a few moments of his existence.’”
(Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson, p. 1051)
