Before all, there is Nothing. Nothing
is a something unto itself. It is only Nothing to us. Being that to us
Nothing is a no thing, there is not much to say about it. No words can
be used to discuss No Thing.
Nothing becomes revealed through
something. Yet, as with everything, something has a beginning, a middle
and an end. The beginning of something, of everything is its Will.
Will is the intention and desire to be.
Prior to becoming, there must first be the Will to become. Everything
in creation has a beginning. The beginning of everything is its Will to
be, to develop into that which it is.
Will is the kernel, the seed, the tiny
small essence that contains within its smallness the entire plan and
process for becoming. Will includes within it all that is to be, in its
most fundamental primordial state.
In the Will, there is the desire for
everything to be. Yet, Will does not manifest the different parts.
Will does not think; Will does not feel; Will does not act. Yet, Will
manifests the drive that gives birth to thought; Will expresses the
desire that gives rise to feelings and Will creates the impetus and
drive that motivates actions. All this is brought forth from Will,
whereas at the same time Will is none of these.
Will is a power, the manifestation of
being, even before the birth of consciousness. Will reveals something
from the Nothing. That something goes through the process of creation,
birth and evolution until such a time when it masters maturity and
fullness. In this state only is there completion. In this state only
has the full Will become manifest.
Will begins as a motivation and desire
and ends with action culminating in completion and perfect expression.
When there is a Will, there is a way. The opposite is also true; when
there is no Will, there will be no way; no way to accomplish, no way to
succeed. Will is therefore the source of all; it is the beginning of
all things. It is the seed.
A seed needs to be planted in fertile
soil in order to live, to grow and prosper. The soil that nourishes the
seed of Will is the genesis of thought, the inner Mind, the unconscious,
intuitive knowing, best known as Wisdom.
However, this is another lesson…
