Three factors of Intention - Will, Desire and Belief
Masha'Allah, our Mind is a powerful tool. The Will is the mind force or mental assertion. When we Will something, we mentally assert it. We have the mindset that commands and demands that it must be so, and that it Will. Our Will gives power to our intention. Will is the outward projection of Spirit. The Will is choice of focus. We choose what we focus on, what we hold our attention on, and where we align our energy towards with our Will.
The Will is the ruling faculty of the mind. Only the conscious mind has the ability to assert the Will. We, who has no will has no mind. Our mind is not our own if is being used by another. Unless we control thought, it will control us. Concentration is sustained focus. Will is the faculty of concentration. Concentration requires interest. The relation between concentration and interest is the relation between Will and Desire. The Will is concentration of attention.
When we are centered in right thinking, we send out only good will to others and are without fear. We cannot be influenced by the negative thoughts of others. In fact, we could only receive good thoughts, as we send forth only good thoughts. Resisting places us in a state of torment. Perhaps our fear is of their personality and do not avoid them. Be willing to meet them cheerfully, and they will either prove golden links in the chain of our good, or disappear harmoniously from our life.
