Imam W. Deen Mohammed has said, “The worst form of slavery is the slavery of the human will.”
When our ability to take action is enslaved to procrastination, the outcome is usually degeneration or mediocrity. The will to live physically is fostered by the instinctive principle of self-perpetuation that is inherent in the life germ that makes up each cell in the biological form.
However, the conscious will to be healthy, in the biological form, carries with it the faculty of choice. It is this “will to be” that can be enslaved to concepts of limiting belief that stops humans from having the health, wealth and happiness that G-d promised them in the Scripture.
Our perceptions about matters mostly personal, either prohibits or stimulates our will to act. If we say, ”I know I can” but in the deep recesses of our souls believe we can’t, then we won’t move with conviction to achieve what we think we can.
Our self-esteem and self-worth, which G-d put into our souls, seeks to express themselves in an excellent way. However, our ego, which is a part of our mental makeup, can function in a less than excellent way and influence our will to make poor choices.
Adam, the perfect human, is challenged by Iblis, a complex within himself. A complex that thinks it is better than the perfect form that G-d made. This complex seeks to get in the way of your right choices.
This complex tries to make us believe that living a life that’s less than what G-d expects is acceptable. It uses justification as a principle of pleasure to stop the pursuit of excellence.
It knows that all your decisions are influenced by pleasure and pain. Sometimes, we justify being obese, when we think about the pain of losing the weight.
All humans are driven neurologically-based upon pleasure or pain. These two states of consciousness are influencing every decision we make.
We eat or don’t eat based upon pleasure or pain. Even when we fast and we feel the pain of hunger, the pleasure of pleasing G-d is over-riding the pain of hunger.
We may feel the pain of going to work, but the lack of pleasure in being able to pay our bills over-rides the pain of going. Paying the bills gives more pleasure than going to work.
In order to free our will, we must learn to make new neurological decisions. The pain of losing weight must become a pleasurable experience. In order to unlock the will, you must see yourself now with the weight gone.
If you cannot overlook the appearance of things, you will never unlock your will. Move your self-perception to greater excellence.
See yourself with your mind functioning better, body more agile, blood pressure down, no back pains, swelling gone, clothes fitting better, etc.
Realizing that this comes in time, you must set goals that are time specific and result oriented. Be reasonable with yourself, but you must start and this requires unshackling your will.
