"Evolving" spiritually, tends to be a gradual process on planet earth. However, depending on what the ears hear and the mind is fed, could very well expedite the process.

From an early age -- when children are raised with
principles of love, kindness, caring and charity, putting the "ethics" into practice becomes second nature.  However, as children grow and experience life, they encounter experiences that test their ethics.

There’s no guarantee that a maturing child that has been taught positive principles, will respond with positive "reaction" when their ethics are met with opposition.

Human beings confront opposition in their lives daily. It’s how we approach and respond to situations that reflects where we are in our spiritual evolution; whether we look in the mirror or not, we carry our inner house around with us; we experience our inner emotions.

"Self actualization" develops as our ethics are challenged by opposition in the world. The tests we encounter impact the core of our inner being; causing us to question our character. But, the questions remain: can human beings become benevolent beings by any power of our own?

Can we change our heart to "cause and affect" situations in a manner that creates a lucrative outcome for all parties involved; an outcome that leaves the initiator pleased with their inner emotions? Or, does it take a higher power other than "human nature" to supersede taught values, ethics and our natural heart?

In the Bible 1st Corinthians 13 states that Love overcomes all things… (racism, prejudice, hate, envy, jealousy) it goes on to state that love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things.

I ask you, "are we Love?" Do we have the power to
overcome all things by human accord?
By our own accord -- are we spiritually evolving?

Or does it take hearing and being fed a higher level of consciousness by a benevolent God in order for spiritual evolution to take place?

It’s your choice; however, I encourage you to read 1st Corinthians 13:1-13 and decide for yourself whether or not you believe yourself to already be the embodiment of the knowledge before you, or whether  you need a higher power to transform you to become the embodiment of the knowledge!
