Self improvement is wonderful. However many seem to think it is about getting something.

I gained a new shiny copper penny….

Really self improvement is about knowing what you already are (in the context of “spirituality”) imo…
Like king Arthur, you are asleep, dreaming…waiting to awaken when needed.

Often the first teaching is the last.

A bird flies, it doesnt gain anything by learning to fly; the ability to fly is already inherent within it.

Jesus says:
“Come to know what is in front of you,
and that which is hidden from you will become clear to you.


For there is nothing hidden that will not become manifest.”

….

When my Beloved appears,

With what eye do I see Him?

With His eye, not with mine,

For none sees Him except Himself.

— ibn al-`Arabi
