The true needs of the individual tend to take a back seat to that of all the material objects that continually hypnotize our judgment and our eyes.
So, how do we overcome the desire to want and want and get back to basics? How do we consistently remember to concentrate on our spiritual growth? Examine yourself thoroughly about your lifestyle and be honest with yourself. Use introspectiveness; thoughts, belief system, the way you feel, the feelings you have, and what motivates you. After looking at how these traits affect your life and what outcomes or results come from them you will have a firm grasp about your true self with an objective set of eyes about who and how you really are, no matter how pretty or ugly the truth. Now, if it is ugly, the first thing you need to do towards your spiritual growth is to forgive yourself about your past, since you are now on the road to recovery and rebuilding your future towards your individual spiritual growth.
Know and concentrate on the parts of your life that require help and improvement. As you start to grow spiritually, you will already be reaching your maximum potential just by striving each and every day to grow spiritually. As you are searching for meaning, you will begin to discover things about yourself that will provide you further direction towards your spiritual growth.
At one point you will discover that both God and Scientists alike encourage spiritual growth of the human being, even though they disagree about our existence. While the Bible teaches that humanities purpose through spiritual growth is to serve God, scientists teach us that we don’t just exist because we are here; they believe we actually here to learn from each other and ourselves. So, as you can see, no matter what you believe your road to spiritual growth will have a lot of meaning teaching you to feel other people and other living things, to be connected, per say.
After your body, heart, mind and soul truly recognize this deep connection, your appreciation for all humanity, plants and animal life will simply blossom in a way you can never imagine. As a result, you will become a much more respectful, humble person, especially in regards to your environment and surroundings. As you continue to explore your spiritual growth, the paths you take will lead you in new directions. Your personal development will expand so much and you will meet so many more people because you will be open to it.
