Growing spiritually— "unfoldment, not accretion"

From the July 1980 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Somewhere along the way we may have picked up the notion that spiritual growth is accomplished by constantly adding spiritual ideas to the memory banks of a computer-like consciousness— the premise being that spiritual growth is the mere accumulation of spiritual facts. If we go along with this belief, we may find ourselves unthinkingly reading, and perhaps collecting, everything we can find on the subject of Christian Science, in hopes it will make us more spiritual.
