Relationships are the Vehicle to Growth

2 min

What if I told you that you’ll grow and change just as a consequence of living, regardless of your effort (or lack of effort) to consciously do so? And that, in fact, your deepest and most lasting growth will come overwhelmingly from relationships approached with love and joy?

“Can you feel now how we are changing places?
My king, my king, what is heavy turns to spirit.
If we just keep hold of each other,
you grasping the young one and I the old,
we could revolve together like stars.”

-Rainer Maria Rilke, Venus in Capricorn

What if I told you that you’ll grow and change just as a consequence of living, regardless of your effort (or lack of effort) to consciously do so?  And that, in fact, your deepest and most lasting growth will come overwhelmingly from relationships approached with love and joy?

Relationship to yourself, relationship to the humans in your life, relationship to the more-than-human both seen and unseen.

The idea of self-development and spirituality as an end-all be-all to ourselves as individuals, is part of the current trouble.
