Self growth is continual introspection and returning to your true nature. It is not "self-improvement" that lends the impression there is something innately wrong with you. Rather, self growth is about breaking through layers of obstacles to illuminate your sincerest expression of true authentic self. Authenticity perfuses a sense of ease into every aspect of life, nourishing your self-worth without external approval. It switches from trying to being.
As a devotional practice, self growth encourages the vulnerability to turn in and evaluate old broken patterns, flawed processes of thinking, roots of fear and insecurities. It is the cathartic affirmation of letting go.
By living with intention, one can develop and hone wisdom, insight and intuition for a more aligned life.
