If one is striving to grow, earthquakes and landslides keep happening in one’s life.
Those who are stagnant, who don’t grow, their life seems to be stable and steady, and looks better. But it is lifeless. For one who is striving to grow an enormous amount of upheaval happens in his life. But all the upheavals are worth a little bit of growth that could happen within a human being.
What we are referring to as a spiritual process is basically a journey from creation to creator. The greediest people on the planet are the spiritual people. All the others are willing to settle for a piece of creation. These people want the Creator himself.
