The Secret of the Will - Page 2

Those who have developed their mind so that it will allow the Will Power to manifest through it, have opened up wonderful possibilities for themselves. Not only have they found a great power at their command, but they are able to bring into play, and use, faculties, talents and abilities of whose existence they have not dreamed. This secret of the Will is the magic key which opens all doors.

The late Donald G. Mitchell once wrote: "Resolve is what makes a person manifest; strong resolve, and crude determination; accurate purpose - and that strong and indefatigable will which brings in ease and safety, as a child treads down the heaving frost-lands of winter; which kindles their eye and brain with a proud pulse-beat toward the unattainable. Will makes people giants."

Many of us feel that if we would but exert our Will, we might accomplish wonders. Some do seem to want to take the trouble - at any rate; they do get to the actual willing point. They start right away, and talk specifically of "now," and that now has come.

We instinctively feel the power of the Will, and we have enough energy to exercise it, and steer towards our goals, perhaps some friendly circumstance arises, some helpful person appears in our path, or some kindly desire stirs us into action, in either of which cases we are compelled to assert our Will and thus begin to accomplish something.

The good thing with some of us is that we do want to do the thing enough to make us exert our Will Power. We do want to hard enough. We are mentally active and of strong Desire. If you do not like the word Desire substitute for it the word "Aspiration." (Some people call the lower impulses Desires, and the higher, Aspirations - it's all a matter of words, take your choice.) That is the good thing.
