What on earth is spiritual growth, you might well ask?
Think of it like deciding to use more of your brain. Everyone knows that you have a lot more grey matter than anyone ever uses. We use about 4% or less and the rest of our brain is dormant. At times in life, we seek to improve our memory for exams or a performance. Sometimes we try and learn something new and we can feel our hand / eye coordination stretch and sharpen and the exercise brings great pleasure and increased flexibility. It is increased flexibility that we need for spiritual growth too. Become more open minded so you can see and understand more of what is going on.
To initiate it, you might have to let go of a standpoint of safe cynicism. This shows up in the form of statements like, ‘That’s just how it is’ or ‘I’m just being realistic’. You can then challenge yourself with the question ‘what is the gift in this situation?’ What you look for, you find. So if you’re looking for something to blame, you’ll find it and if you’re looking for a new awareness you’ll find that instead. The former inevitably leads to stagnancy and the latter leads to personal growth. There is no need to be fussy, spiritual growth can develop as emotional intelligence, mental clarity, an appreciation of the arts, acquiring a healing skill or physical grace. There are many roads to the top of the mountain, so to speak!
The key is to really know that these are remembered faculties. You are not a little person dabbling in a few more things that life has to offer. You are reconnecting with your true nature. This can be pictured as a fluid energy field containing everything from God, to angels, all majestic beings great and small, oceans, skies, the lot and all brilliant past humans and those to come too. So upload the energy of the greats that you need and expand yourself that way.
I’m here to remind you of your mega aspects. Oneness is the way to go!
