I don’t think we ever stop growing spiritually once we start down that path. However, sometimes trying to explain the profound insights that God gives us is like speaking another language. I think maybe that’s why Jesus used parables. Using an example people could corrlate it with brought it into view. For example I know what it feels like to be One with God, but this oneness that you can’t see is hard explain. Mark Nepo likens this oneness to the nautical definition of marry, “to join two ropes end to end by interweaving their strands.” He goes on to say, “that just as two ropes that are married create a tie that is twice as strong, when we marry our humanness to our spirit, we create a life that is double strong in the world.”*
I would add that when we interweave the self with spirit we become who we were created to be…our true selves.
