Discovering our own Godlikeness

One of the biggest pitfalls in committing to a path of spiritual growth might be falling into a chronic state of self-improvement—of humanly trying to perfect ourselves. When we approach spiritual work from a concept of self that needs fixing or improving, we can get caught in a cycle of feeling that we always need to be better. 

But what if instead we approached growth with an aim of discovering what is already true, and perfect, about our spiritual wholeness? When the approach to individual growth stems from a divine basis, from an understanding of our oneness with Spirit, God—and holds to this—our efforts are more centered on spiritual discovery and on living what we actually already are. And we stop feeling that we can’t be happy until we fix all sorts of things about ourselves.
