Below are the best resources we could find featuring richard bach about spiritual growth.
There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts.
It must happen to us all . . . we pack up what we’ve learned so far and leave the familiar behind. No fun, that shearing separation, but somewhere within, we must dimly know that saying goodbye to safety brings the only security we’ll ever know.
We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill.
We choose our next world through what we learn in this one. Learn nothing, and the next world is the same as this one, all the same limitations and lead weights to overcome.
Wrong turns are as important as right turns. More important, sometimes.
That’s what learning is, after all; not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we’ve changed because of it, and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way is winning.
When you have come to the edge of all the light you have and step into the darkness of the unknown, believe that one of the two will happen to you. Either you’ll find something solid to stand on or you’ll be taught how to fly.
Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers.
There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they’re necessary to reach the places we’ve chosen to go.
