    “Will as an eternal principle is neither spirit nor substance but everlasting ideation. ”

    A quote worthy of the deepest devotional thought one could possibly harbor- to align ones personal will with that which is as quoted as “eternal… everlasting ideation”- such a grand idea. Such a magnificent philosophy.

    Thanks for posting this article.

    my pleasure Kristan – not much written on this, to my knowledge, but quite a distinctive, deep and important notion – part of the rich theosophical model of spiritual psychology…

    ps – some more somewhat obscure passages from hpb’s Gems from the East, June:

    12 Will is the offspring of the Divine, the God in man; Desire, the motive power of the animal life.
    13 Will is the exclusive possession of man. It divides him from the brute, in whom instinctive desire only is active.
    24 Will and Desire are both absolute creators, forming the man himself and his surroundings.
    25 Will creates intelligently; Desire blindly and unconsciously.
    26 Man makes himself in the image of his desires, unless he creates himself in the likeness of the Divine, through his will, the child of the light.
