  • 22. Personal Growth: The Art of Living • Personal Growth is the art of transcending these Pairs of Opposites by uniting to what is beyond the Duality – Self. • By attaching to Non-changing, Absolute, Non- dual Self, you detach from the Changing, Relative, and Dual world. 22
  • 23. Personal Growth: The Art of Living • As such, even in the midst of daily struggles of life, you remain calm and centered inside. • This is the state of total Freedom and absolute Joy – the ultimate goal of Personal Growth. 23
