What Happens after Self-Realization?
Jivan: Dear sir, I have read a lot of things on self-realisation at your website, though I was not able to find the answer to my question. What happens to a person after self-realisation? For example, if a person has kids or has a job or is in school, after self-realisation does a person still continue to carry on with the life they were living before self-realisation or does a person change their lifestyle and become a guru or a priest or something else?
I do know that a person becomes detached from what they are doing, also ego and many other feelings melt, but what happens with your lifestyle if you have responsibilities? Before I start to spiritually progress I just want this question to be answered so when I do start I have a clean mind and no worries.
If you can, please email me back. Thank you.
James: You keep right on as before, Jivan. The only difference is that the things that happen in your life don’t bother you. So go for it. No need to become a guru. The world has too many gurus already.
~ Love, James
