Bottom line: you don't have to go somewhere to seek spiritual growth. All you have to do is notice and face what is in front of you and you will be growing spiritually.
I am saying this because there is danger in seeking something elsewhere when answers are in the moment, here. The harder we try to find them elsewhere, the more we separate from the answers we are seeking.
By noticing what is in the moment, addressing that with sincerity and respect you will get what you are looking for: connection to your soul and the resultant sense of meaning, purpose and peace.
