Chapter 10 - IS DESIRE A DIVINE IMPULSE? - 67
MASTER: Is desire a Divine Impulse? One hears this question asked in
as many different forms, it seems, as there are humans.
So frequently is
it propounded and discussed it seems to me that it will be helpful to
answer it from Troward's standpoint; after you have studied and
meditated upon it from his views you will arrive at your own
PUPIL: I am glad that you have brought this up for us. I have often
wished I knew just what God wanted me to do when I have been
undecided about some move, perhaps a momentous decision.
MASTER: The only way anyone can fully understand Life's law of
attraction is through seeing what it does under certain given conditions.
In a tree it is growth; in an animal it is development; in all of nature it is
evolution. From the lowest to the highest forms all growth is prompted
by the organized creature pushing forth in its own accomplishment.
One can not do otherwise than believe in the law of unfoldment which is
the hallowed desire of the All-Originating Life to see itself more and
more fully manifested. Since we as humans are branches of the one and
only tree of Life this fact is also true of us.
