…determination is in most cases simply the expression of a fixed and united desire.
It is not the organised use of the will. The secret of the will lies in the recognition of the
divine nature of man. Only this can evoke the true expression of the will. It has in fact to
be evoked by the soul, as it dominates the human mind and controls the personality.
The secret of the will is also closely tied in with the recognition of the unconquerable nature
of goodness and the inevitability of the ultimate triumph of good.
