Endigar 378 ~ Growing Up

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

 The essence of all growth is a willingness to change for the better and then an unremitting willingness to shoulder whatever responsibility this entails.  (As Bill Sees It, page 115)

Sometimes when I’ve become willing to do what I should have been doing all along, I want praise and recognition. I don’t realize that the more I’m willing to act differently, the more exciting my life is. The more I am willing to help others, the more rewards I receive. That’s what practicing the principles means to me. Fun and benefits for me are in the willingness to do the actions, not to get immediate results. Being a little kinder, a little slower to anger, a little more loving makes my life better day by day.

Should I measure my growth by what I view as reward?  My immaturity craves social approval in all its forms, like a baby crying for attention.   I let that go, and seek change.  When the path is opened plainly before me, I do what I have to do to secure that change.  I take on the hard work of  possessing the vision given to me of my higher self.

My maturing character finds reward in the natural excitement of actually living my life.  I seek the rewards that come from patiently sowing seeds of life in others, so that I can be surrounded by living souls.heads5
