When we fail to open our minds to the possibilities of what we can learn and how we can change, we will always inhibit spiritual and emotional growth and as a consequence, will fail to move forward or understand how we could have contributed to our issues or circumstances differently.
Just because we grow older, doesn’t mean we will grow wiser, more mature or attain spiritual growth. Unfortunately, these all need working at. But as we journey through life we will go through sequences that will test our abilities to listen, talk about and express ourselves, as long as we don’t give up.
The very nature of an experience allows us to heal and grow, on both a grand and small scale, but for it to work successfully, we have to make it happen. Spiritual growth is about releasing the emotions that weigh us down, the exact emotions we need to let go of. To do that we must understand why it has to be time to let it go, particularly if we can’t secure the desired outcome.
The emotional release as the process resolves itself will leave us feeling more alive, less fearful, less anxious and irritated, free without attachments, allowing us to stay focused in the present moment. Spiritual and emotional growth is cumulative and needs to be continually worked on, so that we may build emotional strength.
It can happen quickly or slowly but that depends on us, but we will never evolve without it. When we come to understand our attachments and why it’s important to let those go, we will have peace. To do that we must have clarity around our perceptions. It’s only when we can look back at something from our past and we’re okay with it without feeling angry that we know we’re healed.
Mental clarity associated with emotional healing will always foster wisdom. Wisdom fosters compassion, compassion fosters understanding and tolerance, wisdom and selflessness to accept why we are where we are. The answers lie within us. We are responsible.
It’s also when we come to accept a loss, through a relationship, a death, or the loss of a pet and we whether the storm so that calm can finally be restored, we will have emotional and spiritual growth.
