Growth – when it comes to you – is not something that you should try to shrug off. It is persistent and it will stick with you, beside you, until you allow it in and you invite it to change your circumstances. Without growth you go nowhere. The most common reaction to growth – initially – is resistance. Who wants pain? Not one among us, I am sure. However, pain is an inevitable part of growth in most instances. In order to stretch and reach higher, further, than you have ever reached before, you need to invite yourself to grow. You must meet your boundaries, exceed them.
There are countless ways to grow yourself. You can start by facing your fears. That is usually a very effective way to develop your character and grow your human being. Facing fears starts with acknowledging that you have them, firstly. If you should have no fears at all, then consider yourself extremely fortunate. Yours is the ideal space to be in. We are all driven to that space, the place where fears are merely a considered reaction to a situation. If you can stand outside your fears and watch them going on you will find that you are in a much better position to deal with them, to let them go.
Growing means you will need more room to keep yourself. That can mean literally a larger space in which to confine your physical form, or more headspace to accommodate your ‘larger’ mind. Your ‘opened’ mind. An opened mind takes up a lot of space, it has mazes of doors that you will need to open, each of them so you can grow. You have to be brave enough to open the doors, to walk through them. You will change every time you do. That is a frightening concept for some people. It really shouldn’t be. The more you change, the more you grow and since growth is what we are all aiming at on planet Earth – for it is through growth that we will achieve every one of our end goals – the braver you must become each time you discover that it is your turn to grow.
