In recent explorations of the human growth and development cycle, it became apparent to me that each stage of the growth spiral requires a release. A letting go.
Letting go of the group to become the individual, letting go of dependency to become self-responsible, letting go of individuality to rejoin the whole. This cycle is reflected at various stages, such as the child letting go of the mother and the teenager breaking away from parents.
Thus, the growth cycle is about defining who we are uniquely, then rejoining the whole.
Soon, it becomes apparent that everything is either fullness or resistance to fullness. Release or stress. Flow or the karmic wheel.
From that perspective, its notable that the first stage of growth is then essentially resistance to resistance. (laughs) Resistance to individuality, to boundaries. But without that step, we can’t become defined and play our role in the expression of fullness.
