Excerpt About Father
Universal Will creates a sense of immense strength and solidity, a confidence in one’s capacities in relation to others. Hence, it is quite important for personal relationships. When Universal Will is present the feeling is that one’s personal Will is supported by a bigger, more immense and more universal presence. It is quite impossible to appreciate what we mean when we say it is an immense presence, without having the direct experience. It is like feeling one is solid, immense and immovable, like a mountain. There is nothing like it in ego states. Universal Will is usually projected on the father, and becomes associated with his image. The issues around it are basically those of father’s support for one’s own Will. The specific identification system related to it is the identification with father’s masculine strength and solidity. The issue is generally different for women, for whom the identification is with a self-image that is receptive to the father’s support and solidity.
