I Am a student of Conscious Growth and a firm believer that growth comes by first understanding then overcoming. For growth is nothing but going beyond or transcending a current limitation.
When it comes to outer growth, that is a QUANTITATIVE INCREASE, this is easy to see and understand. We go for training on how to run and grow businesses, how to invest money, how to increase sales etc.
But when it comes to inner growth or QUALITATIVE INCREASE, many of us simply believe they know it all or that by simply “believing” one who showed an example that we admire, we can just magically achieve their heights. This is why many just believe in Jesus, Mohammed, Krishna, Buddha etc but we see nothing of the qualities we expect in Jesus in the lives of those who believe in him.
Many also believe “Spiritual Teachings” which promise instant magical results.
Nothing can be further from the truth. Any worthwhile undertaking demands commitment and investment of time and other resources. Inner growth, being the most important aspect of being alive, is even most demanding.
You need to be committed to achieving the heights and peaks of consciousness levels that you admire in Jesus, Buddha and others. Here, a belief won’t ever do. Neither worship. Nor tithing. Nor church attendance.
