What is Spiritual Growth
Author: Greg Tharpe
Spiritual growth is the process of increasing your spiritual understanding of the spiritual truth about God, self, the world and life as it pertains to the mind, body, spirit and soul. It is coming to the realization that you have been separated from God and you are seeking your path to get back in alignment with spiritual truth. You realize that your relationship with God is the most valuable thing in your life; therefore, you strive for spiritual growth and to grow closer in communicating, listening, trusting and understanding the divine spirit within you.
You come into spiritual growth awareness that the world has programmed and conditioned your mind with a false perception of reality about God, self and life that is not in harmony with spiritual truth. You become aware that the deception and trickery of the world or ego is for the purpose of keeping you from knowing the spiritual truth about being in bondage of the negative affects of a worldly mindset.
Do you realize that when your mind is separated from God, it does not want you to have joy? It wants you to be caught up in the drama, fear, emotional turmoil, stress, lack and limitation of life. It wants to deceive you and keep you unaware and not believing in the power of God in you. In other words, the mind wants you separated from spiritual growth.
When you choose spiritual growth, you seek to find the spiritual truth and remove all of the erroneous beliefs that are world-based and not of God or spiritual truth based. You realize that these beliefs are not serving your highest good or the highest good of the world. You become aware that lack of spiritual growth is actually the cause of any emotional, physical or financial lack, limitation or negativity you are experiencing.
As you grow to higher vibrations or increased faith through spiritual growth, it removes the blockage, which allows your divine intuition or God in you to show you “the way, truth and life”. Therefore, you begin the process of changing your perception or beliefs about reality.
In essence, you are removing all of the erroneous beliefs or sins that are keeping you separated from God or from experiencing the life of love, joy, peace and happiness that you truly desire. Spiritual growth allows you to set goals and to be the best you can possibly be in all areas of your life. Then you seek the assistance of God to help you unblock your divine wisdom, power and guidance for you to achieve everything your heart desires.
You mature to the level of spiritual growth awareness and consciousness where you come to understand that everything you desire in life is within you. You take responsibility for your failure and success as you grow and realize that the power and presence of God is within you to express itself in the world through spiritual growth and your true spiritual self.
