I stretch in the direction of my growth.
When I begin an exercise program, I may marvel at the speed, strength, and endurance of others who are already physically fit. As much as I may wish for my abilities to match theirs, I know I must first grow in strength and agility.
On my spiritual path, I may have met those who seemed so grounded, so centered in their spiritual practices, I wanted to match their calm bearing and spiritual equilibrium. I realize that they have been practicing longer than I have, that they had to stretch and grow as beginners, just as I do now.
I stretch myself as I deepen in faith and grow in understanding. My growth is slow but steady, as I follow the call of my heart to delve deeper and reach for a greater experience of Spirit.
