With any type of behavior you have an internal sense – a connection to the Will – that tells you whether that behavior is reinforcing your Will or weakening it.
It’s indeed an internal feeling in the sense that either you’ll feel better or you feel worse.
It’s not the same good feeling you’ll get after a good meal or anything pleasurable like that. It’s different.
It’s a feeling that comes from the Will.
You’ll know it soon after you start any type of Will training.
Then it’s a matter of being attentive to it on your daily life.
Maybe in the beginning you feel it more often in its negative form.
In other words, you feel your Will weakening. Particularly after a behavior where you didn’t do what you truly wanted to do.
Let’s say that you wanted to write a new chapter for your book, but instead of you spent that free time watching netflix. After it, you’ll immediately a feel a weakening of the Will.
You said that you were going to do something, but you procrastinated and did something else instead.
Then the connection to your Will weakens. You end up feeling worse.
While, if you had written that chapter for your book when you said you were going to do it, the connection to your Will strengthens. You end up feeling better.
This is a very immediate and concrete feeling. Personally, I believe this to be a great feedback mechanism that our Will has of communicating.
I can know immediately whether I’m on the right track or not.
It’s not about being a slave to the Will; remember that the Will is about what you truly want to do, not what you should do. When you keep that mind and make this distinction, everything becomes easy.
