Willingness supports intention and facilitates the purification process of spiritual evolution, which often requires the willingness to face inner discomfort for the sake of reaching a higher goal. Willingness summons forth the extra energy required for the effort of overcoming obstacles and resistances. It also requires commitment to periods of endurance to reach the higher goal. It includes a positive attitude toward the process of learning itself and the acquisition of necessary spiritual information and commitment. Willingness is a positive attitude as contrasted with the attitude of willfulness, which is a form of resistance. Surrender of positionalities is a consequence of willingness and is therefore an important quality of serious inner spiritual endeavor.
