G.I. Gurdjieff, Fourth Way, self-transformation ‘Need for Freedom’

Under the influence of the action of Solioonensius, instead of the desire and striving for a speedier self-perfection a something began to arise such as they themselves characterize by the words ‘need for freedom’…that feeling which arises from the action of Solioonensius strengthens in them the need for some or other general change in the conditions of their ordinary external being-existence…[resulting in] ‘vainly-to-grow-sincerely-indignant,’ or as they themselves say ‘vainly-to-grow-agitated’ also flows from this.
