Question: If my Goal is clear to me and this Goal is
the path to God, should I abandon everything right now and go only into this?
Answer: How do you understand “going only into this”? Every one has to
be engaged specifically in that type of activity, which corresponds to the current
stage of one’s development. And this is both exoteric, i.e. usual, “earthly” occupations,
and esoteric ones; but also various. The most general answer to your question may
be this: a person develops in the best way in the process of his/her active Love-service
to other people. Apostle Paul said about this the following: serve with your highest
gifts, striving to develop in yourself still higher abilities for service! So let
all of us learn and share our knowledge and skills with other people! And this will
be the Path to God for each of us.
Only the one who cognized Atman and resides in Him — that one alone, according
to Krishna’s Teaching, is delivered from the duty to be active on the Earth. But
such people act in the same manner as Krishna did, for Love does not allow them
to be idle when there are those who need help.
