Only In Man Does Activity Become Experience – Swami Nityasthananda

Material growth takes place by adding something from outside; but the growth of life is always from inside — it is a manifestation of inner potentialities.

When we consider man’s growth and development, it means the real inner man coming forth and expressing himself in every dimension of his life.

Only in man does activity become experience.

Man must live consciously, with full awareness of what is going on around and within him. This alone will help him to gain mastery over himself. Self-control and self-awareness always go together. When we consciously control ourselves—our senses, desires, negative emotions, thoughts, etc., as a natural corollary our self-awareness will increase.
