Appropriation Is an initiatory act. You will come into greater understanding of it as such once you learn to use the will in this way, appropriating every activity into which you formerly entered automatically (or for whatever reason) such as the act of eating, breathing. The Soul appropriates the energy, force, and substance of all of these forms, because an activity is a form, and in this way, through this initiatory action, he not only sets into controlled motion the energy, force, and substance of his instrumentality and his environment, but he begins, step by step to master it, to make a new impression upon it, to redeem it.
