What is Spiritual Growth?
SPIRITUAL GROWTH often begins with spiritually rich questions which arise in our minds like:
Our deep, meaningful questions arouse doubts about merely living for material success. Perhaps wealth, power, fame, sensual pleasure, etc., have no lasting value. That insight itself is a sign of spiritual growth.
Growing spiritually pushes our inquiry forward into the unknown—but spiritually discoverable. When we feel an urge to seek answers to our questions, we can progressively discover a spiritual world, a spiritual realm, which provides answers to what is real, meaningful, and lasting.
Sooner or later, we will feel a definite hunger for meaning. Seemingly unrelated to that hunger, the urge to act unselfishly arises. If we choose to make unselfish, fair, and even generous choices, we begin to experience meaning, purpose, and satisfaction.
When we follow through, acting unselfishly, we see that caring actions work to produce goodness. We are reassured by feelings of rightness, joy, and fulfillment.
All of these explorations produce spiritual growth.
