How I use the Growth Marking
When I think of Growth, I think of life; sprawling into every crevice of what will sustain it. I think of overcoming, pausing, healing, spreading, sharing, and nurturing the growth of others, even in death.
For many people, the necessity to grow out of one's shortcomings are not always obvious. For me, in the context of my schizophrenia, I had some severe challenges to face beginning in my early teens. The beautiful thing about growth is that one can never stop growing.
By focusing my will on the growth marking, I begin to step outside of myself and my inner conventions. Whether it be conscious or intuitive, I bring my thoughts and way of being to a place of listening, understanding, and self-reflection.
