  20. 20. Personal Growth: The Art of Living • Personal Growth is the art of living Inside Out. Living Inside means living in your Center (C), in your Self (S), and in your Spine (S). • Living Inside Out, therefore, is being active outside in the Relative, Dual world while being centered inside in your Absolute, Non-dual Self. 20
  21. 21. Personal Growth: The Art of Living • This is the Art of Living described in Bhagavad Gita, the ancient text on Yoga, as “Yogastha Kuru Karmani,” which means “Centered in the oneness of Self, perform Action.” • The outer world is always in Duality, where everything exists in Pairs of Opposites – heat or cold, success or failure, ups and down. 21
  22. 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. 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
