Peace_MindBodySoulWhy is spiritual growth so important?

Spiritual growth is an inner process, not only for people seeking spiritual awakening, and who live in monasteries or ashrams, but for every one. Spiritual growth is essential for a better, happier and more harmonious life, free of tension and strain, fear and anxiety. 

Actually, this term is not correct and is misleading. The spirit is perfect and does not need to grow. It needs to ‘awaken’ and know itself. The spirit is already an inseparable part of the One Spirit, which is present everywhere. This knowledge and understanding is hidden beneath thoughts, desires, feelings and habits.

What you need to do is to remove everything that hides this knowledge and understanding. Spiritual growth is the process of getting rid of wrong concepts, thoughts and beliefs about who you are and about the world in which you live. Through this process, you increase your awareness of your real essence, which is beyond the ego and the personality.

In this process you drop negative and limiting habits, erroneous thoughts and beliefs, and let the inner self within you shine out. It is a process of looking inside you, shedding your illusions and uncovering your true essence, which is always present, but hidden beyond the ego-personality. Seems too far fetched? No, it isn’t.

This isn’t anything new or extraordinary.

Spiritual growth benefits:

  • Realization of who you really are.
  • Increased feeling of happiness and bliss.
  • Experiencing a state of inner peace.
  • Circumstances and situations do not affect your state of mind.
  • Becoming more patient and tolerant.
  • The ability to rise above frustration, disappointment and negative feelings.
  • Increased inner strength and confidence.
  • More common sense and seeing things as they really are
