Be Conscious at Every Breath

I received many years ago via oral transmission that the first rule of the Khwajagan is to be “Present at Every Breath”. When I first heard it, I did not know how to spell Khwajagan, who the Khwajagan were, or how to verify the information. Now with the advent of Google, its spell check, and memory of the phrase, I have discovered not only who the Khawjagan are purported to be [a chain of Central Asian Naqshbandi Sufi Masters from the 10th to the 16th century], who they influenced [Gurdjieff’s ‘Fourth Way’ originated with the Khwajagan], but some of their other rules. Not unlike other oral traditions that are hitting the internet this is not readily verifiable, but the rules do seem to pass the litmus test for “Way Above Average”.

Find the first and the other listed rules of the Khwajagan here.
