Personal Growth

Being open to new things is an essential part of personal growth!  A person who stops learning and expanding his or her knowledge and understanding, and decide they already know all there is to know, will not be fun to be around.  Those who have rigid minds and thoughts are to me the most frightening people in the world, because they can do anything not to have to take in something new and accept that they might be wrong.  I also often feel very sorry for these people, since I think it must be scary to have a nagging feeling that they might be wrong but the fear of losing face forces them to defend whatever they believe.  Of course some of them really are surtain that whatever they believe in is right and whatever you say cannot shake them at all, and that is also very sad, because even if you are sure of something it is always good to test your beliefs against new ideas.

Learning is important, your whole life through

The more you learn the more you realize that you don’t know and the more humble you become to the vastness of life. Learning more means being able to put new things into perspective and that gives you the ability to choose what you want to believe, because we all have our personal  belief systems.

To me, personal growth is a never ending project and I devour books and have endless discussions on all sorts of spiritual topics so that I might understand how things work in our inner universe and the one around us.  I don’t think I will ever feel that I know all I want to know, there is always new and fascinating things to learn and that makes me really happy.  We don’t learn as long as we live, we live as long as we learn!

  3. Personal growth is both challenging and rewarding. I think some people tend to shun it because it requires effort. Yet, it is the only thing that really makes life feel like it is worth living.

    1. Hi Joshua, you are so right! Always learning more and trying to view life in a positive way keeps a person grounded. Regards, Kristina
