To develop means to unfold something that exists in a compact form. It does not mean creating something new, but I develop the existing, grow it, remove the folds and bring it to its true dimension.
The precondition of development is existence. Growth follows. This sequence of things is crucial because if someone thinks they have something but do not actually have it, then they try to develop it, unfold it, give it the shape it ought to have but there is a tragic mistake in this reasoning: there is no such thing, there is no such issue to discuss the next stage of development. In order for a baby to grow up, a prerequisite is that it is born and its development follows.
The baby’s birth does not precede his or her development.
And we all understand that such tragic failures in our consciousness have an abstractive and destructive character because we spend in real materials to build fantastic walls in a building that does not exist and in the end there is a pile of materials and ruins that have cost us trouble and time and money without a final edifice.
In the field of faith in the living God, this naivety has zero results, high costs and debris that create a burden and a barrier and not natural supply and enrichment.
