Evocation of the Will
 DINA II, page 298-299
May be used as orientation to investigating (trends of) Problems of Humanity, discerned through recognizing the Divine Plan.
5. The evocation of the will. This is, for disciples particularly, the new and most necessary development. As I oft have told you, the average aspirant confounds will with determination, with fixed intention, with self-will and one-pointed attention. He does not realise that the will is that divine aspect in man that puts him en rapport with and then controlled by divine purpose, intelligently understood in time and space and implemented by the soul as the expression of loving application.
The mode par excellence by which the will can be developed is the cultivation of the recognition of the divine Plan down the ages.
This produces a sense of synthesis and this sense of synthesis ties the man into the plan through recognition of:
a. Its inevitability, therefore demanding cooperation.
b. Its success, therefore evoking wise activity.
c. Its immediate objective—to which all the past has led.
d. Its rightness—to which the intuition testifies.
It is not easy for the disciple in training to associate the sense of synthesis and the use of the will together and to realise that a cultivation of this first ray perception is a potent mode by which the highest aspects of the spiritual will (as yet embryonic within him) can be unfolded. Elsewhere I deal in greater detail with the will, its nature and what it is.
