The Power of Will … Continued

My last article talked about that least-remembered talent we human beings possess: the power of will. I equated it with “choice” and “determination,” but will deserves some closer examination. After all, how can we draw on its power if it’s only a shadowy concept, something we’ve mentally assigned to the realm of boring philosophers and 19th Century preachers?

Yet will is the force that moves everything in the universe. It is the magnetic energy behind thought, that draws to itself whatever it dreams of. Will stirs the pot of creation, and adds new colors to the mix. It is the creative power behind thought, behind everything. By learning to use it, we can deflect any aggression, defeat any predator, and create whatever in life we wish to experience.

We need to really get this, intuitively, or it’s only an empty theory. It needs to become a deep understanding that we live from. Only then can will empower us.

So let’s think deeply for a few moments, reason things out, and consider our own experience. What evidence is there that will exists and that it is the power that moves the universe?

Well, what does the universe consist of? Stuff. Matter. Things. Where did it all come from? Unless it existed eternally, matter had a beginning: there was a time before it appeared on the scene.

Is it reasonable to think matter has always been there? That would mean matter is God, the end-all and be-all. Does that make sense? That rocks, fish, air, planets, stars have existed forever, without any beginning? It’s more reasonable to think that they came from something, something more basic than themselves. Scientists speak of a Big Bang, from which all matter appeared. What did the Big Bang come from? What was it that was exploding?

If nothing existed yet, then what exploded in the Big Bang was something immaterial, something that pre-dated matter. What could that possibly be except energy or thought? In fact, it had to be both: energetic thought, because thought is naturally energetic and energy is naturally intelligent.

Think about it. Think how energy moves in an intelligent direction. In its solid form as matter (people, animals, objects), energy moves in response to desires and intentions: a dog gets thirsty, it moves toward the water; you miss your mom, you call her on the phone. Energy moves with purpose directing it, not randomly and meaninglessly. That’s why we know energy is by nature intelligent. We see this even on the finest levels of creation, where subatomic particles display attraction and move in response to the attention of the observer.

So energy is intelligent. Is the reverse true: is intelligence energetic? If so, then energy and intelligence are one and the same thing. Energy and thought are one and the same thing. I’m using “intelligence” to mean “thought,” because thought is the active expression of intelligence.

Stay with me here. This is what I mean by thinking long thoughts. This is the kind of deep thinking we need to do to understand what we are and what we’re made of and how the universe works. Once we deeply grasp that, we grow in power. Perceiving our deeper nature, we start to operate from there. And that means finding our way out of the fix we and the rest of mankind are in.

So let’s get back to the drawing board … Is thought energetic? Obviously it is. Thoughts are what drive us to do things (to expend energy). A powerful thought (one with great energy) attracts other minds to it (examples: reading a book, buying a popular item, joining a cause). Even the random mental chatter that flows through our minds when we’re idle has a level of energy (enough to keep us awake at night if too much of it is going on).

We’ve seen for ourselves that energy is intelligent and that intelligence (thought) is energetic. So thought and energy are essentially one and the same. We also saw that energy/thought, being immaterial, must have preceded the creation of the universe. In fact, it is what the universe had to be born of, because there was nothing else.

Since energetic thought is the parent of the universe, it is also what the universe is made of. Matter (the universe) is simply congealed thought, congealed intelligent energy. And matter (creation) moves in response to our energetic thought.

This is the principle behind the Law of Attraction, the reason thoughts are magnetic. There’s very little difference between a thought of something and that thought congealed in the form of a thing. Our thoughts are creative and destructive, depending on the direction of their energy. Thinking bad things will happen, attracts energy to the thought that encourages the bad thing to occur. Intending and expecting good things to happen has the opposite effect.

So where does will come in? Will is all of it. Will is the force behind the thought (it’s the energy). Will is the intention directing the energy (it’s the intelligence). Will is the energetic thought, the directed energy, that is the source of the universe. It is the oven from which the Big Bang exploded. It is the force that moves everything in the universe. In fact, it is the only thing that ever makes anything happen. Without will, without energetic thought, everything would be static. There would be no life.

Whenever something happens, someone’s will has caused that event. Someone had an intention, a desire, strong enough (energetic enough) to move the soup of creation around in some way, or to add something new to the soup. People who live mostly on random thoughts, on their own repetitive mind chatter, have very little influence on the direction of creation, let alone the direction of their own life. Because they think from a level of low energy, not from focused intention.

The people we call the movers and shakers of the world live mostly on focused thoughts. They control what they allow in their minds, and think thoughts purposefully. Their minds are filled with plans, with intentions. The energy behind their focused thought is powerful, because focus gathers energy. Such people are the architects of the world, of “reality.” The reality that the rest of us mostly just react to and experience, because we, floating in the soup of our own random thoughts, allow others to determine our direction.

The movers and shakers are swimmers. The rest of us are floaters. And the swimmers of the world, having the game down as they do, right now are having fun pushing the floaters around the pond. Their scheme is to shove all the floaters into one little corner of the pool and keep us there, while they splash and play and enjoy all the rest of the place by themselves. It’s called the Great Conspiracy. And they’re pulling it off because we cry and moan about how mean they are, how clever they are, and how powerful they are, when in fact, the only difference between us and them is that they know how to think!

They know how to think with purpose, with will. They think with intention. They think with bad intention, but this is partly our own fault. We earn and deserve their scorn for being floaters, always reacting to life, never grabbing life with our hands and shaping it to our purpose. Our passiveness, our lack of will, has let the willful assume control of the playing field. They despise us for our weakness and stupidity and would like to see most of us exterminated (although they’ll keep a few around to do their bidding).

We have been weak and stupid, but not because the bullies are by nature stronger or smarter than we. Everyone came from the same Big Bang, the same intelligent energy. Some of us just learned the power of will while others forget that faculty existed. Those who did learn the secret conspired to keep the rest of us in forgetfulness. But the power is there within our own thoughts to take back control of our destiny. To take back our lives, personally and collectively.

It is only a matter of changing our minds, of thinking with new purpose, of determining not to self-destruct over the machinations of the bullies who are having a great laugh at our expense, as we float every which way they think to push us. It’s a matter of learning to swim.

It doesn’t matter how advanced they are in implementing their plans. When the floaters wake up and start swimming, they will create a force in the water that pushes back those trying to herd them. The bullies know that, and it is why they want to get rid of us, to destroy most of the world’s population before we get wise to the game. A cornered animal is likely to get wild, to discover its will, to assert its power. The bullies want to eliminate most of mankind before we reach that point.

The trick is for us to wake up soon enough. Not wake up in the sense the Truthers have already awakened: to knowledge of the conspiracy. We must wake up much more profoundly, to our power of will. We must decide NEVER to allow what they are orchestrating, that it will NOT happen, that we draw the line right here.

We mustn’t say “I’ll let them shoot me before I’ll go to a FEMA camp,” because then we create being shot. Then we enter the next world as a victim, still vulnerable to bullying, still pursued, still the plaything of the strong and malicious. When will it stop? When will we have enough and DECIDE it ends here? How much must we get pushed around before we catch on that when it ends depends entirely on us?

It’s our lack of will that allows their will to determine everything. It’s our lack of assertion. By remaining passive, mentally and physically, we allow them to do to us whatever they will. We are victims by choice. By default. Our will, operating in passive mode, has allowed it.

All we have to do to reverse the situation is to summon that will, to summon our passion, to understand the difference between us and them is only in the level of determination. “Victory belongs to the most committed,” goes the saying. They are more committed. They scheme, plan, and act. We bitch, moan, and hide under the bed. Not all of us, but so many of us aware of the conspiracy. So many of us feel hopeless. And it is that very hopeless attitude that will be our downfall, unless we take the bull by the horns and correct that.

It’s time to grab hold of our attitude and will ourselves to grow powerful. First by addressing everything in our personal lives that we let hold us back, every lame excuse for why we haven’t succeeded, for why we suffer, for why we cannot have what we desire. Then by addressing the Great Conspiracy itself.

All there is in the world is one essential element: thoughtful energy, energetic thought. That’s all there is. Everything material is a distillation of that, a result of that. Each of us is essentially a thought thinking itself, a thought made of energy. Energy that is eternal and infinite.

By thinking with focus, with passion, with determination, we access our unlimited energy to create or experience anything we want. There are no victims when all are infinitely powerful at their core. There is only forgetfulness of our nature, failure to access will, and a choice to let the bullies make all the decisions.

    Bronte,
    Your words speak volumes and say in a cohesive, clear way what I see, feel, perceive and “know”…yet have struggled at times to explain, understand or rationalize…and when I have attempted to discuss with others – receive a blank, glazed look in return or a shaking of their head indicating my level of craziness.
    Regardless, I carry on…with a knowing I have held since my first earth breath..and in that remember the truth. Keep on keepin’ on…thx for what you are..and do.

    I agree wholeheartedly even though I had to drag myself through the first part of the post.
    The problem I find most difficult is that definition you have of ‘bad’. There is a meme out there that demonises all manipulation which is exactly that ‘swimmer attitude’ you are describing.
    Being a swimmer is dangerous not only because you become responsible for your actions on others but also because you might not be able to control what you spawn.
    The question to me is how I can be influencing without taking freedom from others. I wish to communicate with a person’s authentic self, but this seems almost impossible when they are unaware of their ‘mind chatter’ and convictions.

      There is also a meme that says having personal power means you’re going to use your power to influence or control others. Only insecure people do that. “Power corrupts” is a meme we have been programmed with to keep us weak. Who wants to strive for personal empowerment if it means you’re going to lose your goodness and integrity? This kind of thinking keeps the sheep sheep and the ranchers permanently in control.

      Having will and exercising it does not mean you have to manipulate people. That’s using will from the perspective that you can only do so much to take care of yourself so you need someone else to do the rest, and you’re going to make them. This is the kind of power tyrants exhibit, and while they clearly have will and use it, they are still deeply unsure of their ability to take care of themselves. That’s why for them it’s grab grab grab.

      Total power, total ability to control your own life, means knowing you are infinite thought/energy/will, and that as such you can take perfect care of yourself. You don’t need to manipulate or control, because you have all the power you need within yourself, as accessible as a thought. You ordain what you desire. You call it forth from within your own infinite nature. You fully enter the world, matter, with your spirit. You infuse matter with the boundless energy of spirit, shaping it into whatever you wish.

      You need no one outside of you to do this, so you don’t step on other people’s rights. You ordain in a way that is harmonious – that wills all good and freedom to everyone around you. You don’t build your palace on someone else’s grave.

    “influencing without taking freedom from others”…Czymra

    Does this statement in itself show a need to control an outcome and/or concern for their reactions to our actions? Then everything we do, say, intend, or act upon is “influenced” by our fear of influencing others…and thus the outcome is altered from it’s original intent we had. Not sure if I have the right words here, but I feel we are so afraid of other people’s reactions that we stagnate ourselves and suppress our natural will-fullness, life-force, beingness to maintain status quo.

    Freedom is absolute…and it cannot be given or taken….it is.

    I would say that influencing others is a natural result of taking any sort of action. We are all constantly being influenced, affected, by what goes on around us. But how we respond to what goes on around us is entirely our own affair.

    It does not violate anyone’s freedom when we make a choice and perform a subsequent action. We can give out a damaging influence or a good influence, however. If our intent in taking the action is harmonious – meaning, we want to benefit ourselves and also others, and in no way cause suffering – then that influence on others will be good.

    To intentionally perform an action for the purpose of manipulating others to do something that will benefit us at their expense – that is being a bully and a tyrant. Being ethical means always taking action that works toward win/win situations.

    If I have a business idea and need someone to provide capital, it’s not manipulating if I present my business idea to a potential partner with the intent that he makes money and I make money both. But if I try to trick him into being my partner, or of I maneuver the profit set-up so that I benefit at his expense, that would be selfish and unethical.

    In both examples, I am influencing another person, even trying to persuade him to do something. But in the first scenario, the intent is harmonious, and the other person is given all the information then allowed to decide. In the second scenario, the intent is “me first, the heck with the other guy” and I don’t respect the other person’s freedom of choice.

    That’s an abuse of power, and as I said earlier, I think it comes from insecurity. The person doesn’t realize she’s powerful enough within herself to attract a business partner who WANTS to be with her, so she resorts to devious tactics, roping in whoever she can.

    The greater our insecurity, the more likely we are to be selfish and tyrannical, I think. The more we understand our infinite power, the less we need to feed off of others.

    What Kamryn said shed some more light on the issue. I understand that all action is influence/manipulation and I also strive to have those interactions carry a harmonious nature and outcome. The word ‘healthy’ is what I like to refer to a lot.

    I must admit that probably there is a lot of fear involved in getting the right reaction, thus the whole intent gets corrupted. I’ll have to work on that.

    However, the question was also aimed towards authenticity. Health for all involved may be one good criteria but with human beings being not much more than a bunch of memes it seems diffcult to become ‘authentic enough’ in order to manifest the intent that I consciously think of.

    What I meant by spawning is that I may go out there trying to create a win/win situation consciously, while subconsciously all I project is domination.

    So, the fear involved as Kamryn stated goes hand in hand with realising and executing this willpower on the world, as suddenly the distorted mirror of life in whose reflection we might fancy ourselves becomes flattened out an pure, but the reflection then is all but beautiful… at least at first. It may be a divine/spiritual task to use one’s willpower to force the mirror flat and look without fear at all that it throws back at one.

    … the question for me remains still…. can other human beings even perceive my ‘pure intent’ if it is really pure if their mirror is all distorted?

    (By the way, I don’t get those follow-up eMail notifications from this blog. Maybe you need to update a plugin?)

    Great posts, and very timely for me. I’ve been refining my understanding of the place of Will in a balanced approach, down to the role and appropriate way to use one’s solar plexus chakra, which is basically your “personal power organ.” These memes often end up stored in the chakras I’ve found — but then, if we can deliberately get our chakras operating with a better understanding at the energetic level, everything else follows.

    For a number of reasons I think I’ve actually swung too far in the “will” direction though, lol. I’ve never been about trying to control or manipulate anybody, though due to a rather determined neg interference campaign I did end up with an attitude of “nothing good happens to me unless I *make* it happen,” and “nothing bad in my life stops unless I *make* it stop.” This ended up in a situation where my energy and effort was way over-extended to the point of exhaustion trying to get things going well for myself, which I’m pretty sure is not how it’s “supposed” to be. I’m currently trying to figure a better balance between “making things happen” and “letting things happen.”

    There’s some good material here though that gives me ideas for getting back to a better balance, methinks; three thumbs up. :)

    the first part of the article dealing with object can be simplified and synthetised by using parmenides philosophy, specially in his dialog with heraclites , where he oppose way of truth to way of perceptions, it is a global reasoning on what can be told to really exists and what is just apparence of opinion

    basically it says that ‘things’ come and goes, suns, fish,rocks are just temporary state of things, sun explodes, fishs dies, rock get melted in volcanic and tectonic activity, no object exist forever, so basically they never exist at all, the only thing that really exists is the generative principle that is constant that link each moment with the next one, what make that plants grows, stars to form and explode, this global generative principle is the only thing that really exists, and it is the mind and the sense who create the perception of objects, and the idea of it, that is only based on ponctual perception, but fail to grasp the essence of their being that is this generative principle, which always exist and is constant behind the formation all things in their perceptible state

    this philsoophy is probably borrowed from judaism principle,and is the global p inciple of monotheism, that underlie the latter rational and scientific look on things, and the importance of intelectual realisation in the perception of what really exist, opposed to direct perceptions of objects and mateer which is not really having any understanding of the nature of reality

    then come the question of determination, this can be split in two form of determination, act determined as a reaction on past event, which mostly rely on more or less unconscious reaction, which is a form of non controlled , not really determined reaction, and action that take up on a projection in the future, that will be based on some form of knowledge of reality that allow to describe the consequences of our acts in the future, which is this second way that is more interesting regarding law of attraction

    then you speak about ppl who act uppon firm determination, (implicitly based on a correct understanding of reality to be able to achieve something), which is basically the freudian super ego, the power of consscious determination that allow us to take over ‘automatic’ reaction that we might have toward past event

    in any theory of psycho analysis, even in budhism or kundalini, freudian or jungian psychology, you will find that this super ego conscious power is constantly interupted by more or less compuslive thinking, of which you have two way to get rid of, simply repressing them (unhealthy), or integrating them into the conscious knowledge that you have of yourself, to be able to have a good understanding of the consequences of your action in order not to triger subconsious complex, traumatism etc that will then hinder your self confidence and ability to hold a rational determination in your super ego

    the only problem with the form of determination that you advocate, is that knowledge is not what matter the most, knowledge evolve all the time, on all level, what matter is this processus of knowledge generation, and desire, and love for widsom, is mostly what will validate the knowledge in the end, if the action taken uppon that knowledge will really be usefull and positive, and this can only be appreciated via emotional outlook, and accordance with the ‘automatic’ ‘collective unconscious’ mind, that it triger no negative reaction on this action taken under the basis of determined ‘super ego’

    it is where intelectual of the enligthement century were plainly wrong, by just repressing their emotion in order to look more ‘socially evolved’, and just holding on a body of knowledge, they disable their possibility of positive creation and validation of the usefullness of this body of knowledge in a new situation that only an understanding of unconscious and emotional mind can be able to validate as good

    the goal is to eliminate shadow area of this unconscious mind, and being counscious of yourself as a whole, this way you can tap in the understanding of the collective unconscious from which all desire and needs arise that will validate the usefullness of an action

    ‘imagination is more important than knowledge’ =)

    the question of good or bad is simply success or failure in building the correct body of knowledge in accordance to the necessity present in the situation, and failure to realise god will in that present moment, no body of knowledge can garantee to act in accordance to ‘god will’, but constant self actualisation and passion for truthness and righteousness is the only thing that really matter, an act of good is an act done in full understanding of the necessity behind the act, an act of bad is an act based on the failure to realise this necessity as a whole, based on flawed, partial or arbitary body of knowledge , or simply based on automatic unconscious actions =)
