Spiritual growth means emotional growth and to be spiritually advanced is to be emotionally mature. It is an awareness about the capability of relating the outcome of actions best for oneself and for others after assessing a relationship and situations at hand with integrity.

As we grow emotionally, we learn to control our mood and state of mind. We do not let outside circumstances affect our mood and state of mind. We rise above ego, anger, lust, jealousy, affection, frustration, disappointment and negative feeling.
