If You’re Not Growing You’re Dying

The purpose of life is to grow. You are a spiritual being having a human experience, a sentient consciousness that it capable of self expression in so many, many forms and through uncountable mediums. History has shown us that people who have made the conscious effort to grow and expand their experience of their lives have a more complete life.
The education that a person gets outside of college or university is more valuable to a person's overall evolution and growth. Generally it is misunderstood that these institutions will teach you what you need to get a better life. I disagree with this.
The people you meet and places that you come in contact with will teach you about the history of the world and the people in it. It will also help you to learn about yourself as you interact with people from all over the world. The people that you spend time with will show you a part of yourself that had, until that time, remained dormant.
I feel that this is true because of the realisation that all is one and one is all. It is like we are all drops of water from the same ocean. Everything is connected. If you take this a bit further you could entertain the idea that you create your own world, your own reality. This is true because the further you expand yourself, or grow, the bigger your section of the ocean you are able to see and experience. By experience I mean in all its forms, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual, as well as all the other aspects of these four areas.
To take this yet further, one could bring in the experience of reincarnation. With this belief in mind, each of the people could be seen as contracts that you and that particular person needs to fulfill. Why is it that you 'hit it off' with someone that you've just met? Perhaps the contract philosophy could be the answer? If you choose to see it that way then each of the people that you meet can help you to grow by completing or adding to the contract that you two have agreed upon before you came to this lifetime.
Travelling to a country can have a similar affect as far as growing, because as you become sensitive to energies and places, the conscious foreign land that you are walking on will communicate with you and exchange information with you on a spiritual level. This too will complete puzzle pieces for you.
Life is about living and in my experience growing and living are the same thing. Growth comes through experience and if you're not growing, you're dying.
