How you feel about change is what sparks feelings and thoughts that tie in with inner growth. Whether you search for and welcome change or not, pondering those moments are what can lead you to uncover more about yourself and decide on matters regarding inner growth.
When experiencing jealousy, a person has the opportunity to pursue inner growth because it is brought to their attention a feeling of disadvantage or lack that they have compared to something or someone outside of them. Exploration takes place that will lead to actions to resolve that sense of lack within them.
Understanding your anger, its source and its triggers, gives you a deeper understanding of yourself and allows you to pursue inner growth by the mere fact that you are looking to bring awareness to yourself on why you feel anger; so why anger comes to be and maybe what you can do about it.

When it comes to life, the importance you attribute it brings about a series of questions that inevitably lead you to decisions on where you want to go with inner growth.
How many of you think struggle is part of life? That if you want to get something or somewhere, you have to fight for it? How many of you believe everything happens without having to fight to conquer it all? That things happen quite naturally, as long as movement is in place?

When it comes to emotional feelings we can pursue inner growth because each feeling is a reaction or state of being that has a trigger we can identify, which we can then also explore.

Truth helps inner growth when you focus on your truths and where they come from. If there is no exploration of truth, then it will not assist you in learning more about yourself or going beyond in your journey.
