Will, Consciousness, and Intuition
What are the differences between Will, Consciousness, and Intuition? In their heart, they are the same. In their essence, they are the same. Consciousness is a continuum of infinite energy. That is consciousness. But in us it is not continuous – we are paying attention one minute and we are totally asleep the next.
So, Will comes into play as an effort to contain, focus, and direct that consciousness. Will is the effort to keep that consciousness flowing in the right direction. You strengthen your will by making yourself concentrate on a task without getting distracted. This is not as easy as it sounds initially: try holding a non-distracted thought in your mind for any length of time. It’s not very easy when you first begin to learn, but with practice, it gets easier.
Intuition is used to know how to direct the force of your will. Do you see? They are different parts of the one thing. When you have intuition, you know where to direct your consciousness by will, and when your will is strong, you can easily direct your consciousness.
For example, you are walking down the street and you see an old friend, and you know from past experiences with this person that this person is very negative and loves to gossip. You have consciousness at that moment because you are working to be aware of yourself. So you are working on focusing and directing your consciousness. So right there you have conscious attention, where you observe that person. You are enforcing your will in that moment. Your mind tells you “This person always wants to gossip with me. I should avoid them.” But your heart tells you, “I need to talk to them.” Which one do you do?
Most of the time you probably listen to your mind. “No, I shouldn’t talk to them. They’re just going to do this and that. It is going to be terrible. Why should I even bother?” But if you listen to your heart, you are listening to intuition. You might go and find that something happens in the exchange between the two of you that you needed. It could be painful, it could be pleasant, whichever.
However, you will have to make the distinction on what to do from moment to moment – if you are paying attention, if you are conscious. You have to listen to your intuition to give you guidance on when to direct that will, how to direct that consciousness through the will. The answer to that is always changing, and the mind will always try to interfere — always.
So the will or desire is ‘control consciousness, control mind.’ Keep consciousness active, keep mind passive. It is not easy, but the more you make the effort, the more you maintain continuity of observation, and the more you maintain the continuity of the remembrance of your Being, the more familiar you become.

Here’s a site where you’ll find my writings.
The Bravehearts of Belgrave High is now published. I have completed the first in a series of novels that I wrote for teens. It is the courageous story of a young girl growing up in a home filled with domestic violence. She also has to endure a school and neighbourhood full of bullies. We read how she maneuvres her way through such a difficult situation. Plus, how she grows because of it, among other themes in the novel.
The desired outcome for young readers is that they will be inspired to treasure their unique differences. If they don’t fit in with the system or with those around them, then they should realise that it’s quite okay not to fit in.
My first novel was written to help raise funds for the private foundation that I established, which might later become a charity. Click here if you’d like to be taken to the site where you can purchase this novel. If you cannot see the site, use a browser other than Chrome.
