G.I. Gurdjieff. Gurdjieff's approach  to enlightenment involved observing oneʹs life, not trying to change it, but observing it so closely  that one becomes aware of what is underneath it. Instrumental to his teachings was that the individual need not  follow anyone elseʹs path but his own, and in seeking enlightenment, one must look within, question oneʹs  motives, and go through a process of what he called “self‐ remembering.”
