A Short Course in
Personal growth is the lifetime journey of discovering the answers to the major questions in life. These are philosophical questions, that cease being merely philosophical when the answers apply directly to your own life.
- Who am I?
- What is the meaning of life?
- Who am I in the big picture?
- What is really important to me?
- How much of my life can I control?
- What makes me do the things I do?
- How will I face my inevitable death?
- How do I know what is true for me?
- What am I supposed to be doing with my life?
- How do I deal with internal experiences, like emotions?
- How should I redirect my life to be consistent with my truth?
- How do I make choices about the other people that are part of my life?
These are just some of the questions that everyone who ponders the meaning of life must eventually consider. The urge to ponder these questions comes to people at different times. It's like coming out of a fog, and feeling the need to determine where you are and where you are heading. We refer to this moment as awakening.
Of course, some people have not yet come out of the fog, and these questions will seem like a silly child's game. Others may hear the calling to consider these questions, decide they would rather remain simple and unfettered by such responsibility, and pretend they are still fog-bound. They hope by hiding their awareness in the fog, they can postpone the inevitable journey, or better yet, avoid it altogether.
However, no one gets a free pass in life. Everyone must eventually figure out what they are here for, and how to best go about accomplishing it. A life in a fog requires a progression of denial, increasing the amount of denial to achieve the same level of unawareness. And, since the tools of denial are self-destructive, the natural outcome for everyone is they either get the message and come out of the fog, or they suffer the results of such self-destruction.
Personal growth is not really an option. You either grow or you die, just like everything else in nature. There is no in-between, where life is static. Growth is the natural state of being, for all living things. Nothing stays as it is. Yet, humans try, sometimes diligently, to not have to grow and change.
The only real choice is whether you get your lessons for growth in relatively easy bits and experiences, or if you will require that your lessons be delivered to you in a way that you will not be able to refuse, in a large, dramatic, life-changing situation, which we often call a crisis. You will be confronted with the questions of life and growth, one way or another, or you will die from the instruments of denial. It is the first law of nature.

A recent comment from a Short Course subscriber:
Thank you for sending me these short courses. You have no idea how what you have sent has helped me in my life. Sometimes I might be feeling a little out of sorts and when I come to my computer and read what is waiting there for me to discover, my whole attitude about the day changes. I am definately [sic] a seeker. Over the last ten years what I have come to understand about God, about myself and about others is pretty amazing. Still, I know there is still more to come, more lessons to learn, more love to uncover and more love to give.
I think "Being There Net" saves lifes. When my finances are more lucrative, I will sign up and become a member. I have always availed myself to your"free lessons" and I'm grateful for all of them.
Eternal love and Peace to you,
