The aspects of maturity are spoken very loosely. There are time when people expect us to show maturity in our worldly conduct, knowing very well that they have had acted unethically towards us when they were at a driver seat. More often such people rationalize their conduct on the name of strict technical interpretation of things and take unwarranted favorable view. In reality, more often than not, they give away clear signs of biasness/ nepotism.
In my considered view this question of maturity is so intimately tied to forgiveness and that is the subject of another Sunday RETAZO.
Maturity is not a statically arrived platform, where life is viewed from a calm, untouched oasis of wisdom. It’s a living elemental frontier between what has happened, what is happening now and the consequences of that past and present.
Maturity is a matter of “unifying” and “integrating your past , present & future conduct,”.___Anaïs Nin
In my view “MATURITY is the ability to live fully and equally in multiple context.. Most essentially it’s an ability, despite our grief and losses, to courageously inhabit the past the present and the future all at once.The wisdom that comes from maturity is recognized through a disciplined refusal to choose from the formed identity: -
- what has happened;
- what is happening now and ;
- what is about to occur.
Contrarily, Immaturity is shown by making false choices like: living only in the past, or only in the present, or only in the future, or even, living only two out of the three.
Maturity calls us to risk ourselves as much as immaturity, but for a bigger picture on a larger horizon and not to gain that make us smaller, even in the winning.
If i say in a way maturity is a kind of arrival at a sense of enoughness — a willingness to enact what Kurt Vonnegut considered one of the great human virtues: the ability to say, “If this isn’t nice, what is?”.
This is what, I think of Maturity :👇
Maturity beckons ask us to be larger, more fluid, more elemental, less cornered, less unilateral & practice a living conversational intuition to reorient your perception. Thereafter you can use it as a compass for a lifetime. __ Joe Sehrawat
