Wishing v Willpower

“When we wish for something, it is a desire generated without energy. The power of life energy is not released. A wish may result in intention; that is, our intention or plan to achieve that result which is desired or wished for. A wish is merely a passive desire to obtain an objective. However, when we use our Will, that is another matter. Using our Will means we will act in accordance with that which is required until we get our wish or desire. Exercising our Will power releases the power of life energy. This is the dynamic way of obtaining our objective.”

(A paraphrase of a quotation from Paramahansa Yogananda – The Law of Success)
