THE WILL TO LIVE AND CREATE, BY THE THEOSOPHISTS

“We are here, in the worlds of matter, because we, as Monads, willed to live: We are Self-moved, Self-determined.

“This Divine impulse, striving ever after fuller manifestation of life, is seen everywhere in nature, and has often been spoken of as the Will-to-live. It appears in the seed, which pushes its growing point up towards the light, in the bud bursting its prison and expanding in the sunshine. It is the creative genius in the painter, the sculptor, the poet, the musician, the craftsman. The subtlest pleasure, the keenest savour of exquisite delight, derives from this urge, from within, to create. All things feel most alive when multiplying themselves by creation. To expand, to increase, results from the Will-to-live: The fruition is the Bliss of living, the joy of being alive.”
