Here is a excerpt from the book of a meeting with Gurdjieff on Thursday, March 18, 1943:

“It is very good that this state has appeared in you. It shows that later you will be able to become someone responsible, a real man, and I love you in advance for that. But now it is necessary to struggle unceasingly. You must maintain a constant struggle between this passive state and your understanding. The more you want to do nothing, the more you must force yourself to act.

“You must struggle without mercy, and this struggle will produce the necessary substance to create in you, with my help, a real ‘ I ’ . ”

— G.I. Gurdjieff
