The question of how our muscles become ‘conscious’ of our desire to move is an obvious one. In my view, we should take as the basis of our observations the idea that what we call our nervous system is only the physical expression of what lives everywhere in our body as activity of perception. There is something that guides us in a certain direction, but that means that there has to be some unknown connection between what guides us and our ‘muscle being’, as there is in the case of conscious actions. Just as our muscle being ‘listens’ to the movements we want to make, so it also listens to the guiding impulse of our destiny, our karma.
