Today I am looking at #4 (out of 12) of our Karmatic Exploration of Self. I hope you are learning, as well.
4. THE LAW OF GROWTH
– “Wherever you go, there you are”.
– For us to GROW in Spirit, it is we who must change – and not the people, places or things around us.
– The only given we have in our lives is OURSELVES and that is the only factor we have control over.
– When we change who and what we are within our heart our life follows suit and changes too.
So often we kill off friendships, perhaps we move, maybe we just quit at things, thinking that will let us be happy. And while I can’t say there’s never a time to move on or accept change, its not what will give us peace and happiness. That alone comes from our viewpoint. We are the ones that will grow, and we are the only things we truly have control over.
To be specific, its important for me to remember that I do NOT have control over my thoughts (they are going to come) but I have control over how I REACT to those thoughts. I do NOT Have control over what situations may arise, but I do have control over how I handle those things.
This was a very interesting one for me today, not only in the topic, but in the reminder/separation that growth and responsibility are hand in hand but different.
I love the idea that we are this ever changing entity that is experiencing life as it simply is, and our growth comes from our morphing of the viewpoint. I keep picturing a colorful blob shifting and shaping. So cool.
Hope you’re enjoying this! As always, please reply STOP if you wish to no longer receive.
Thanks for being on the other side!
