THOUGHT OF THE DAY   |   APRIL 15, 2017

Is It THAT Time to Grow?

“Criticize me, swear at me, push me, kick me. Blame me, if you will find for what. Should you see me doing something wrong, just pick up a stone, and throw at me. Do so, I’m serious. Because, how else will I ever know, it is THAT time to grow?”

So often, I realize, I used to run away from others trying to tell me wrong. I’d fight back, resist, or go on a attack myself. Feeling angry, even furious… or simply broken, and very insecure. 

Never willing to accept the criticism (too much of it received in early childhood, for no good reasons)… But what if someone, here later, was just trying to help me?

Never understanding that the points made towards me had strong-valuable hints. Those, if I was not afraid to listen to and act upon, it would had made me better. Almost, right away.

Yet, I’d go on fighting. Blindly ignoring. No growth, at all! Just feeling weak. And stuck. Or keep on rolling, down the hill…

Years of personal development and meditation practices, it was a powerful experience. It changed here something, to a mind.

Those hours, weeks, months spent in solitude & isolation, it did a trick. A lot was learned, much was discovered. Even more, forgiven.

A Gift? 

Today I figure: it’s true, people will often try to pull you down to make themselves feel better. They’ll see the flaws in you, that they too own, inside of them. 

However, isn’t it a gift when someone points a finger at you, and says, “Here! You got this fault… did you know?”

More significantly, if other few are also to point out at that same fault of yours. Shouldn’t it ring a bell? 

But no, it would hurt my ego… badly. So I’d choose to hide away, and to deny. When all it meant – it was a time to grow.

So maybe this thought to come and visit here, today, is just a good reminder… to keep mind open. Always.

No need to take everything what everybody says (you would go nuts!). But listen to the other, take time to contemplate inside. Reflect, and be aware.

Then ask, “Is it THAT time to grow?”

Why & About 'Thought of the Day'

"A thought a day not captured, is a story of 365 chapters per year, left unexpressed. To die in cold. What if there is someone out there, right now, who is in need to hear that story, to be told? Do I have rights, to hold?"  --William V Vysniauskas

    I always try to take advice and criticism, from people I care about, under a consideration when I make decisions. If I get it from a "stranger" I try to think "does this criticism/advice matter at the moment or can I" put it away for the moment? "
