Strategies and Tools for Individual Expression, Personal Development and Self Growth

Essays, podcast episodes and poems from the Food for Free Thought blog about individuality, personal development and self growth.

“Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye;
and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.”
– Jesus Christ speaking to the necessity of self-awareness of shortcomings during his “Sermon on the Mount”, Matthew 7:5

“It’s you yourself that hide your own treasure.”
– The Persian poet Rumi in his epic poem The Mathnawi

The goal of personal development and self growth is to gain control and awareness over one’s own emotions, thoughts and actions. It then becomes possible to shape one’s destiny, as well as to understand and find compassion for others, since we all suffer by and are motivated by the same forces.
