The name Becoming
was chosen because life is a constant process of
becoming a fully-realized human being, rather
than a destination that can be reached.
psychotherapist Carl Rogers stated in his classic
book, On Becoming a Person: "Life,
at its best, is a flowing, changing process in
which nothing is fixed. In my clients and myself
I have found that when life is richest and most
rewarding it is a flowing process. To experience
this is both fascinating and frightening. I find
I am at my best when I can let the flow of my
experience carry me, in a direction which appears
to be forward, toward goals of which I am but
dimly aware. In thus floating with the complex
stream of my experiencing, and in trying to
understand its ever-changing complexity, it
should be evident that there are no fixed points.
When I am thus able to be in process, it is clear
that there can be no closed system of beliefs, no
unchanging set of principles which I hold. Life
is guided by a changing understanding of and
interpretation of my experience. It is always a
process of becoming."
