1 Spiritual growth is not to please anyone, follow a standard, or strive to look for the light or enlightenment. Spiritual growth is about evolution.
2 Evolution is a process where the self needs to meet with himself and others: Sometimes face-to-face with pleasant and unpleasant realities or quarrels for not understanding the process of how things unfold, but evolution is a process.
3 See how, for instance, a volcano may erupt and take with it lives and structures and create a convoluted non-understandable outcome, yet it is evolution in itself. It needs to happen for other things to take place and replace all existence to bring forth new ones.
4 Spiritual evolution is a process that does not necessarily make sense for some or be a peaceful one. Lack of peace comes from not understanding the process and being attached to what is: The present being affected by that change.
5 You see, when spirit evolves, sometimes it needs to face some realities and go through some changes: old battles, old quarrels, old fears, old attachments, all preconceptions, all of everything that once made you attached to what the present is today that sooner or later, it needs to unfold.
6 The fact that you are in spiritual growth does not mean that you are becoming a saint (or guru) for acknowledging everything you have previously accomplished, for everything has to be met (balanced). And your ability to accept and work with what needs to be worked on is your own work within yourself.
7 How you manage and deal with (your spiritual growth) is not a matter of wanting to do it right but of having to do it the way it needs to be done. For instance, you cannot expect a child who wants a candy bar to sit down and analyze with you the reasons why he should not have that candy right now. The child will cry, make a tantrum, become furious and unsettled, and every emotion might take place at its level until the child realizes that said tantrum takes him nowhere, and then he progresses.
8 But that doesn’t mean one tantrum will solve all his other issues, as you will see that one (tantrum) will follow another and another until the child realizes that it takes him nowhere. And you cannot shorten the string that needs to be followed in the learning process. That child needs that tantrum in the process of understanding how things work.
9 Do not judge others by their actions and reaction to what is brought before them—for every human being has a stage, a starting point, or a follow-through stage of understanding the essence of what it was at one point of existence and having to work with it now.
