There is a section in the book store for self development or self help, people say it is important but what exactly is it? Is it the same as spiritual development?
If we believe that our self is another word for our soul and is that part of us that is connected to everything via spirit then self and spiritual development are describing the same development. So what happens to something when it develops. In photography, in the past when we talked about development we were talking about producing the image from the film, when we develop an idea we bring it to fruition and so I understand that the development we are talking about here is the coming out of the shadows, finding that elusive self and being it. The next question then is how do we find ourselves, where do we look and how do we know that is who we are?
