 Finish that which you begin.
 
 The five stages of our journey are: attention, concentration, meditation, contemplation and Self Realization. Consciousness is the path. Awareness is the traveler. Willpower is the fuel. It does not take time.

+[Gurudeva] : Awakening Willpower
+
+This is why you were born. The one and only reason why you are existing
+in your material body is first to unfold into your clear white light,
+then penetrate deeper and deeper, touch into the Self, become a knower of
+the Self, Satchidananda, and then deeper still into nirvikalpa samadhi,
+Self Realization, preparing for the next steps on the classical yoga
+path--moksha, freedom from rebirth, and vishvagrasa, merging with
+Siva. You will soon realize that you create the mind in any way that you
+want, that you are master of your mind. To become master of your mind,
+you must realize that understanding is fifty percent of control of the
+mind, and you have to work at it as an accountant would work to balance
+his books, as a musician has to work to master his instrument.
+
+To know yourself is why you are on Earth. You were born to realize the
+Self. You are not here to make money, to clothe yourself or to entertain
+yourself. These are incidentals. You are here on this planet to realize
+the Self God, and the only way to experience Self Realization is to
+awaken within you a dynamic, indomitable, actinic will. To do this, the
+steps are: first, find out what and where the willpower is. Everyone
+has it. Willpower is that quietness within, that serenity that is
+likened to a light so bright that you cannot see it with the physical
+eyes. Second, learn to use this actinic will. Begin with little things
+that you do. Become satisfied with everything that you do. To you,
+it must be a work of art, even if it is just drying a dish, cleaning
+a floor or painting a picture. Your work must satisfy you, and if it
+does not satisfy the inner you one hundred percent, you must use your
+indomitable willpower and keep striving until it does.
+
+You must become a perfectionist unto yourself, but first decide what
+your standard for perfection is. You must control the quality of your
+work. Take on no responsibility that you cannot handle. By doing this,
+you will find that you have much more control over the physical body and
+emotions than you ever thought possible. You will begin to demonstrate
+to yourself your powers of control over material creations, the physical
+body and the emotions of the instinctive area of the mind. Demonstration
+comes as you use your indomitable willpower.
