Growth. Something in physical terms would mean to increase in size or mass. In emotional terms it would probably means mature response versus immature response. In spiritual terms, I don’t know. In intellectual terms it would perhaps mean better performance in a quiz or test.
Around 2007 I found the idea of conscious growth from Steve Pavlina’s blog and around 2009 I think I’ve been practicing daily.
Growth is always in relation to who are and where we want to be. We cannot compare ourselves to anyone else and we shouldn’t. Bill Gates would have said that comparing yourself to anyone else is an insult to yourself.
To grow then, we would need an understanding of our present state, to understand that we are but in the beginning of our journey.
To grow, we need to accept that we are all beginners. Masters are the masters at this skill, humility.
Humility opens up the mind for learning. So the way to grow is to start a fresh.
