It is one week since I returned from the first-ever “Enter-In Retreat” organized by Bridge Builders Pune, the Youth Wing of Sadhu Vaswani Mission and I’ve been pondering with the question: “What is spiritual maturity?
Here is what I’ve uncovered:
Spiritual Maturity happens when
You accept people as they are.
You are able to drop "expectations" from a relationship.
You expect better from only one person and that is, yourself.
You stop trying to change others instead focus on changing yourself.
You understand everyone is unique and right in one’s own perspective.
You learn to "let go".
You give, give and give before you ask.
You are able to forgive those who have wronged you and yourself for wronging others.
You understand nothing matters more than your inner peace.
You stop proving to the world, anything.
You don't seek anyone’s approval.
You stop comparing with others.
You are at peace with yourself.
You are able to differentiate between "need" and "want" and are able to let go of your wants.
You stop attaching "happiness" to material things.
You are calm, composed and content.
You make positivism louder.
You practice gratitude.
You place hope in the future.
You place faith in divinity.
Wishing all a happy spiritually matured life.
