Growth

21 Oct

My friend Scott took his refuge and bodhisattva vows this weekend and it got me thinking about spiritual evolution. (Congratulations again Scott!)

I found this marvelous quote by Anais Nin that seemed to deserve some real contemplation:

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.
