A remarkable understanding of Man's possibilities opens when a finer listening appears within, and one's instrument now is tuned to simply receive the impression of What Is.
"Any prayer may be heard by the higher powers and a corresponding answer obtained only if it is uttered thrice:
Firstly - for the welfare or the peace of the souls of one's parents.
Secondly - for the welfare of one's neighbour.
And only thirdly - for oneself personally."
- G.I. Gurdjieff in "All and Everything"
