Going with the Flow - feel the powerful calling of Source Energy You calling the rest of you toward it. And when you go - you feel ease, you feel elation, you feel passion, you feel freedom, you feel euphoria, you feel love and appreciation. When you don't go - you feel heels scraping on the pavement, you feel the tension of the vibrational discord. You just gotta go with who-you-are if you are to feel good.

"excitement," 1915, from refrain of the minstrel song "Camptown Races."
supposedly a characteristic Irish expression of emotion or excitement, 1705.
U.S. slang cry of excitement or enthusiasm, first recorded 1944.
1811, "causing disease," present participle adjective excite (v.). Sense of "causing excitement" is from 1826. Related: Excitingly.
IOW, excitement is individualized as I said elsewhere:
The qualia of the “I” as inspiration & intuition comes forth in lots of ways. Found this in:
One man’s excitement is another man’s boredom.
Found “accidentally” using my kindle waiting for routine blood tests this AM. Lots more around the quote in the book.
The “I” appears in four conditions, which may be described briefly as: the “I” in the physical body, ordinary consciousness; the “I” in the etheric body, imaginative consciousness; the “I” in the astral body, inspirational consciousness; “I” in itself, intuitive consciousness.

Ouspensky personally confessed the difficulties he was experiencing with self-remembering, a technique to which he had been introduced by Gurdjieff himself. Gurdjieff explained to him this was the missing link to everything else. While in Russia, Ouspensky himself experimented with the technique with a certain degree of success and in his lectures in London and America, he emphasized its practice. The technique requires a division of attention, so that a person not only pays attention to what is going on in the exterior world but also in the interior. A.L. Volinsky, an acquaintance of Ouspensky in Russia mentioned to Ouspensky that this was what professorWundt meant by apperception. Ouspensky disagreed and noted how an idea so profound to him would pass unnoticed by people whom he considered intelligent. Gurdjieff explained the Rosicrucian principle that in order to bring about a result or manifestation, three things are necessary. With self-remembering and self-observation two things are present. The third one is explained by Ouspensky in his tract on Conscience: it is the non-expression of negative emotions.
More on the 4th Way
ccording to this system, the three traditional schools, or ways, "are permanent forms which have survived throughout history mostly unchanged, and are based on religion. Where schools of yogis, monks or fakirs exist, they are barely distinguishable from religious schools. The fourth way differs in that it is not a permanent way. It has no specific forms or institutions and comes and goes controlled by some particular laws of its own."
Similar to a lot of what PR describes about Transformation in Pursuing Consciousness. As PR explained direct experience is neither direct nor experience but such is the best words he can find until you get close enough to grok it on your own. Excitement & Enthusiasm as qualia out of the ordinary meanings are the best d’A can find at this time. Imagination, Inspiration & Intuition were those of RS, etc. & he knew what he was talking about (in German) .
When this work is finished, that is to say, when the aim set before it has been accomplished, the fourth way disappears, that is, it disappears from the given place, disappears in its given form, continuing perhaps in another place in another form. Schools of the fourth way exist for the needs of the work which is being carried out in connection with the proposed undertaking. They never exist by themselves as schools for the purpose of education and instruction.
