Toomer and Coyle on Growth

yezida, aka T. Thorn Coyle, posted a marvelous, thoughtful entry about growth today.

She begins by quoting Jean Toomer:

We must not expect one act of liberation, one note
of transformation, to produce a whole new being.

It takes a well-spent lifetime, and perhaps more, to
crystallize in us that for which we exist.

The growth of a human being is a dynamic symphony
of forces playing in this field of force that is
ourselves.

We start with gifts. Merit comes from what we make
of them.

All beings find it difficult to merit growth beyond
growth.


Thorn then goes on to elaborate on her own insights about being willing to let go of the fruits of change so further growth can occur.

For me it is both sobering and encouraging to remember that no matter how pleased I may be at any accomplishment or milestone, there are always more beyond it -- so long as I am willing to continue striving.
