The Will and its Infinite Potential

There are time when we have to wake up at 4 o clock in a cold winter morning to catch a flight or a train. The moment the alarm rings,  we wake up. We feel like sleeping a little more, we do not feel like getting up at all. Who will wake up at 4 o clock in a cold winter morning, get ready, and go to catch a flight? This is the first thought we have the moment we get up. But we do get up, get ready, travel to the airport and catch the flight. What makes us do this in such a situation? It is the WILL. The mind says that we must not go, but the “will” takes us through. The will is responsible for action.
Sometimes in life, we have to face worst situations, we have faced and we have survived. What takes us through? The WILL.
We wake up everyday in the morning and go to work, we take care of our family, we talk to friends, we party – we do a lot of things – so much of doing is possible because of the presence of the WILL. The will becomes prominent when the situation around worsens as per the mind. The mind trembles, fears, but the will does not – all actions that we do everyday are because of the WILL. The will makes us act, or otherwise, we will remain confined to our minds. You have to understand that the will is not the mind. It is something different. If the will was the mind, then we would have all our lives done nothing.
The will comes into the picture when there is an obstacle in the path. We act because there are obstacles. Without the obstacle, there is no WILL and there is NO action. Smaller the obstacle, smaller the will. The will and the obstacle are directly proportional.
The WILL is neither the mind, nor the brain, then from where does the will come? It is the infinite, that is present within ourselves that gets converted into WILL. It is existence, it is the supreme intelligence that gets converted into the will – since humans are capable to converting this supreme intelligence, the intelligence of the universe into WILL, humans are infinite – we can go any extent – we can reach the stars – but we are restricted and confined by our small minds – this is our problem – because of our minds we remain restricted to small things – we do not dare to dream big.
The will comes into the picture whenever there is an obstruction – WILL makes you act – WILL is required for action – WILL comes into the picture whenever you need to stand straight in spite of severe conditions around you – There is thought and there is action – the thoughts are from the mind; both positive and negative thoughts – but the WILL makes you act on the thoughts – The WILL gives power to the thoughts –
If you dream big  – the obstacles will be more and greater will be the WILL – No matter how much you make the will stronger, the will can grow more in strength – it is in one word INFINITE – So human beings are also infinite. But we have not realized our true potential.
So to realize our true potential we must have goals which are very high – and we must with all our will take the challenge to realize  our goal – The Goal should be so high that it Brings out our true potential. To realize our true potential is to make our will so strong that it becomes equivalent to GOD – and then you are liberated.
If your mind is full of good thoughts, then the power of the WILL will translate these thoughts into action – Our goal should be action   at the highest level – because if we act at the highest level – we will require a WILL that is at the highest level and it will then lead us to LIBERATION.
Two things are required:
1) GOOD THOUGHTS
2) GIGANTIC WILL
We must work in a way so as to make our WILL so strong that one day we are liberated – LIBERATION SHOULD BE OUR GOAL –

Greater the WILL – Greater the Freedom

Please Refer my post “Take Life as an Experiment”
If we know that we are free, then why are we not free, why are we scared, why are we miserable? If all actions are experiments then why are we not experimenting with something out of the world and living a miserable life today?
Why are we not aiming to reach the starts?

Why are we living a low life today?
What has happened to our utter freedom?
If the results are not in our control or if the results do not exist at all, then we should be free, there should be no misery at all,but why then we are so full of misery?
Where is our freedom to be free, though theoretically we should be utterly free?
The absence of results and presence of only action should give us the freedom to reach for the starts, it gives us freedom to be anything we want, but where is our utter freedom?
Why are we not free today to do anything we want?
Why are we not full of bliss and glory?
Why do we choose to be a beggar and not a millionaire?
Why cant we dream big and change our thoughts and dreams into reality?
Why can we not be the best in the world in any thing we do?
Why do not we aim to be be the best of the best?
As I told you, all actions are experiments, why do not we experiment with something worthwhile?
What has happened to us? Theoretically we are free – we are supposed to be free – but why are we not? This is the question. If it is theoretically possible, then practically it must be possible.So what stops it?

This is because we are only confined to our small minds. We make others goals as our goals. Our goals are limited to the goals of others. We cant think beyond. Our mind is very small and this world or rather this universe if open – infinite and unending. This is because we are result oriented and our results are what others are doing today. This is because we fear failure, which may happen tomorrow and fail to understand that tomorrow does not exist. The presence to tomorrow gives rise to the mind or the mind gives rise to results and tomorrow. This is because we make someone else’s goal into our tomorrow. This is because our mind tells us that we are small and cannot be big.We dream big, but we stop thinking that we will not be able to. This is because we think that we are helpless. This is because we think we can never be the best of the best.
Summarily – we are stopped by our mind – this mind is the barrier. We stop because we think we will not be able to move forward – WE STOP BECAUSE WE THINK THAT WE WILL STOP.
What can lead us through – IT IS THE “WILL”. One has to understand that the will is not the mind – the mind thinks, but the will makes us act – the mind gives the idea – and it is because of the will that we realize the Idea.
The mind gives you the dream, it gives you desires and at the same time it stops you from realizing them. It is through shear will power that one can overcome anything in this universe.
One has to understand that the will and the mind are opposites – the mind stops and the will overcomes, the will takes us through – greater the barrier (mind) – stronger the will – the will is divine- it is the divine that gets converted into will and it can grow to that extent that it can make you completely free – the will can make you infinite.

Take Life as an Experiment

We all are conducting experiments all our lives. Whatever we do is an experiment, but we are not aware of it. Let us see how.

We all know that, tomorrow is unknown – Rather i should say tomorrow does not exist – tomorrow is just speculation of the mind – OR THE KNOWLEDGE THAT TOMORROW EXISTS BRINGS THE MIND IN OR THE existance of the MIND MAKES TOMORROW. If tomorrow is just speculation then the results of all the actions that we do today are just speculations – they are not real – they are imaginary – they are based on what we have seen for others – if someone starts a business, we have seen that he has earned a lot of money and has become rich. We than start a business and also speculate that we will also earn a lot of money and fame. So the results of others become the result of ours. But in reality we do not know, but we keep speculating – all day and night we keep speculating. Or rather I should say, the Mind keeps speculating for speculation is its job, otherwise it is not needed – without the mind there is no tomorrow.

If tomorrow is not there, there results of the actions are not there – then the next moment is also a speculation -The results are also speculation – then at this moment, the action and the results merge into ONE AND THE SAME – or the results are the actions or actions are the results. You cannot have both. You have to decide – either you chose action or you chose results. There can be either doing or happening. There cannot be both together. At this moment, only one is possible.
For persons, who has decided to meditate, those who have decided to just sit, people with Gigantic Will like those of Gautama the Buddha, it was only happening – Initially it was doing, sitting is also doing, thinking is also doing -but with time it became ONLY HAPPENING. THERE WAS NO DOING AND ONLY HAPPENING. These people with Gigantic will, have decided not to act and let things happen and for them, it was only happening. No doing. These kind of people are very rare, because it requires tremendous will power and tremendous courage. But for others, for those who cannot leave this world, there is only action. There is only doing and no happening. For these people, action and all and no results. Initially results will be in the mind, but with will power and understanding, there remains only action.
For both, initially it is doing, and later it becomes happening. Both the roads lead to the same truth.
We are result oriented – we first speculate the result and then action begins for us. The Idea of the result is from the outside – we see someone doing well in a certain profession, we make that profession into a goal – and make his results our own result and start working; success and failure depends on whether we achieve what he has achieved. WE MAKE HIS TODAY OUR TOMORROW. WHAT WE SEE TODAY, BECOMES OUR TOMORROW – someone sees us do something, he also makes my goal as his..and then many people are chasing the same goal, hundreds are chasing the same dream – then starts competition, who reaches first, who earns more wealth – who has a better position in society – thus in the competition, it becomes either you or me..we become separated – we become divided into “you” and “I”. This leads to the formation of the “I”, the ego. There is always a race to superiority.
So the results do not exist. There is either only action or only happening. We need to work, we need to earn a living, but at the same time we have to live in this world of misery – there is fear, there is failure and all other things.
Since there is nothing which is a result and result is nothing but a speculation – we have utter freedom now. We are frozen because we think from the point of the result. The question comes what will happen if we fail, and this stops us from exploring this world. We do not explore. We do not dare to explore.
You can either unknowingly perform experiments or You can purposely perform experiments, using your will.
My suggestion is whatever you do, you do it as an experiment – will fully. What happens in an experiment? There is a procedure and there are observations. You follow the procedure, and just observe the results – remember JUST OBSERVE. In an experiment, there is no failure or success. There are only observations. So you observe – DO AND OBSERVE – DO AND OBSERVE.
We have to pick up a goal. Otherwise what will we do? PICK UP A GOAL (how ever small and however big) AND WITH THE GOAL IN MIND, CONDUCT AN EXPERIMENT – AND OBSERVE THE RESULT. THAT’S IT. LET THE GOAL BE, BUT WITH THE GOAL IN MIND, YOU ARE CONDUCTING AN EXPERIMENT TO REACH THE GOAL.
All your actions till date have been experiments only – we did the experiments unknowingly – or we did not experiment at all – the fear of failure stopped us from conducting experiments with life – 
 
If you feel today that you are a failure – look at the past as if you had conducted all experiments and all the so called “results” were  just observations – neither failure nor success – and also promise that all your actions will be just experiments – and you will observe the results – just observe!
 
Everyone of us are conducting experiments throughout our lives – day in and day out -but we are unaware that we are conducting experiments – whatever we do are no more than experiments – because there are no results as I have said before. When the results do not exist, whatever we do it is no more than experiments. This has to be remembered.
Everyone is conducting experiments – the person who is happy and successful and the person who is sad and a failure – success but they are not aware of it. They think that they are successful or a failure – they are unaware of the fact that they are just observing the results and the results are either making them happy or sad. They are connecting themselves to the results rather than observing.
The results are different and the happiness and sadness that comes with the result are different. Sadness comes or happiness comes when you fail to observe the result, but you become the result.Then you are not the observer, then you are the observed. You become success or failure  – but you should be only watching or observing the results.
