Question 1
Beloved Osho, it seems that the implications of Gurdjieff's work were as revolutionary, as threatening to the status quo, as yours. Many of his methods were unequivocally outrageous, yet it seems he was never reported in the local rags as running a camp for slave labor, disrupting public transport, being a menace on the roads or being the instigator of riotous bacchanalian orgies.
You said the other morning that Gurdjieff failed because of the thick human skull. Is it for this reason that he chose to work with a small, select group of people -- rather than challenge the entire world as you have? And if you have succeeded -- which you have -- where he did not, is that in part because man was not in quite such a pitifully desperate state fifty years ago as he is today?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, you have pointed out that in dreams we often live out the content of the unconscious in a symbolic form. For example, the wish for a love affair with one's sister is played out in the dream as a love affair with her best friend.
In this situation, who is doing the censoring and why?
