What Are The 3 Pillars Of Growth?
There are 3 pillars of growth supporting the law of growth.
Defined, the Law of Growth is whatever we think about grows, and what we forget atrophies.
Here are the 3 concepts: Acceptance, Responsibility, and Defenselessness
My personal challenge has been in the role of acceptance. To continue to grow, I read and think about the law of least effort acceptance.
Before the Master Key Experience (MKE), I didn’t realize how much I had been struggling against the different circumstances surrounding me. My daughter continuously battles with chemical sensitivities. The loss of my grandchildren as their Father moved them further and further away and cut off all communications with them.
Now I daily use the information we are given in the MKE course to accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur, not as I wish they were.
Peace is forming in my heart that I have not known in the past. as I use the laws of growth and turn to God for guidance.
The second concept I embrace daily is responsibility. Having accepted things as they are, I take responsibility for my situation and for all these events I see as problems. I know every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunities allows me to take this moment and transform it into a more significant benefit.
Before the course, I didn’t understand or look at problems as opportunities.
Now I embrace the problems and look for the greater good to come from them. The good that has come from my daughters’ illness is the many things I have learned about natural healing that I apply to my life. I currently have a restored relationship with my granddaughter. We travel together, and she often comes to see me.
Thirdly, the law of least effort is defenselessness. In the past, I have had excellent reasons and supporting facts to defend my point of view.
This was a huge area for me to work on throughout the course. My daily reading here consists of the following:
Today, my awareness will remain established in defenselessness. I relinquish the need to defend my point of view. I do not need to convince others to accept my point of view. I remain open to all points of view and not be rigidly attached to anyone of them.
Chopra: The Law of Least Effort
Being defenseless has been a big challenge for me, an area of growth that takes careful watchfulness throughout my life. To remain open to all points of view does present itself more often than not some days.
It takes constant observation to prevent that sneaky thought of how drivers drive…how some people act, and many points on right and wrong. I like to call it the “world, according to Joan.”
Prior to the MKE course, I would never have viewed these three areas in my life as much as I am now. Just learning them and seeing them in my life has brought clarity to them. If I struggle with peace, I can refer to “am I feeling like I need to defend my point of view”? Or am I failing to see the opportunity? Or am I not accepting this situation?
Those of you reading this blog post may find many answers to your areas of needed growth by asking similar questions. There is no doubt that peace follows growth in these areas: acceptance, responsibility, and defenselessness.
Joan- thanks so much for sharing your perspective about the Law of Growth and how we can apply it to our daily lives. What a blessing to be reunited with your granddaughter. Plus you are a wonderful example for her to observe acceptance, responsibility, and defenselessness.
