bury the dog deeper

“If Gurdjieff had intended his meaning to be readily accessible to every reader, he would have written the book differently. He himself used to listen to chapters read aloud, and if he found that key passages were taken too easily – and therefore almost inevitably too superficially – he would rewrite them in order, as he put it, to “bury the dog deeper.” When people corrected him and said that he surely meant “bury the bone deeper,” he would turn on them and say it is not the ‘bones’ but the ‘dog’ that you have to find. The dog is Sirius, the dog star…”
