Desire Will

"No, I did not mean will in the above sense, but in the more elementary sense of the term - the original sense, for the word is derived from the root meaning - to wish; to desire strongly." And, in this elementary sense, the word 'will' is used to designate that primitive, original, universal mental principle in life, which manifests in desire for action, and in the response to that desire. In this sense will may be considered as Desire Will, both being held to be phases of the same thing - or rather the two poles of the same thing. The desire-pole of this Desire Will is connected with that which we call emotion, feeling, etc., which arouses it into action. The will-pole of this Desire Will is connected with that principle of mental activity which we are considering under the name of Mind Power - the dynamic aspect of mind."
