Horizontal Versus Vertical Growth?

Last Update: October 23, 2015

Pondering horizontal and vertical growth...

In a moment of reflection I find myself wanting both and wanting none at times. Where is that sweet spot of enough and just a little more? Perhaps sometimes when we are busy trying to live a vertical life we miss out on the subtle nuances of a horizontal life.

So without closing my mind to all possibilities, I am also grateful for all that I have experienced so far. My metaphor for this thought is like a library, that is so big and full of all kinds of books, picture books, novels of great mysteries and adventure, fiction, non fiction etc etc. My life will not be long enough to read them all, however the ones I do read should feed my curiosity, spirit and soul and leave me wanting just a little more.

Embracing Vertical Growth, I'm happy to say that I've enjoyed every moment of my first month in this wonderful WA world! Can't wait for this journey to continue, and "I'm in" to pursue this amazing opportunity that we have all found here.

Nice post.
It is my understanding that we need both horizontal and vertical aspects to create power....like the horizontal calm water that turns into a raging waterfall when the vertical aspect is added. We literally generate electricity from that power.
Pretty awesome. It is also my understanding that it is this same principle that was applied in the original concept of the cross. Thanks for inspiring me to think about this :) Powerful stuff!

What a wonderful post, Elisa! The analogy of all the books there are to read is a good way to approach this AND I so love the concept behind vertical and horizontal growth.

You have a good way with words, a good choice of a visual...you will do well with your website!
