The will is expressed as endeavor and action in the opposite direction from the one in which the self is drawn and confined by the lower levels of the soul. Such a will is good. Its orientation toward good confirms evil as opposition. Since the human self is divided between fullness and nothingness, its realization involves turning to and enduring on the Righteous path. Contrasted to that is the opposite action. The extreme of the first is wrath, and of the second Peace. Orientation toward the perfection of the Anointed One has three stages—the heights and the vertical, which are proclaimed by the heavens; lowness and the horizontal, represented by the earth; and centeredness and inclusion, gathered together through good will toward men. In this divergence the heights correspond to the Spirit. When divergence is resolved, there is no duality of the spirit and soul. But the self in the world means also the presence of that divergence.
