Where does our will come from?
Yet again, my reflection revolves around the importance of insight. The strength of our will or our resolve emanates from our ability to gain insight or create meaning even if we feel stuck like Sisyphus.
What’s fascinating is that gaining insight or meaning-making cannot be forced; nor is it as easy as snapping one’s fingers and letting insight or meaning appear like magic.
A person has to wrestle with their context and make peace with the constraints seemingly imposed by macro-structures and cultures. At the same time, a person must ask questions and seek answers. These iterative processes is the very journey of virtue and flourishing. Multiple cycles of iteration serve as opportunities to fortify our will.
