PART II: The Wisdom Journey of Our Achieving Will
Being True to Yourself - Understanding Our Purposeful Nature
From Elizabeth's Wisdom:
“Our soul emerged into this world knowing there are two defining conditions for soul development that exists here - one condition corrupts the soul, the other evolves it. It depends on our will, also known as the power of our soul, to discern and act wisely within these conditions that determine the direction of our evolution.”
We must recognize that our authoritarian, willful mind is defined by exploitative, controlling, demanding thinking which yields a destroying heart defined by angry, fearful, panicky, grief emotions; all leading to resentment, depression, and rage which fuels our addictive and compulsive behaviors.
So, before Wisdom is acquired . . . . in our purpose-driven nature, we may often wear a psycho-emotional suit of obsessive doing, unrelenting goal-focused rumination, and character assassination. However, our purposeful nature grows wise when we learn to both tame our inner beasts and begin to focus on gaining meaning and understanding about life.
