How To Balance Self-development With Enlightenment Work?

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

recently I got more and more interested in enlightenment work. It interests me deeply. I come to my first realizations, but enlightenment work takes more and more time. I don't want to reject self development, but sometimes when I work on myself I feel that I am lying to myself. Because there is no real self, there is only awareness. I am 20 yo and don't want to settle only on enlightenment work. I want to have cool ass job, make my dreams come true, etc. Maybe I want to make enlightenment work my priority, but I don't want to leave all self - development stuff. I think it's useful. But also I don't want to strengthen the belief, that I am the ego, which self-development seems to do. What's your opinion on it?

Thanks!

That I know... I am just conflicted and I don't know how to solve it.

From where I sit, it looks like you know what you want and don't want, but you still think there's something wrong with it.

There isn't. So I don't see the problem. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I am just afraid my self development work will work against my enlightenment work. And the other way round too.

Then pick the one that speaks to you the most. If you're not sure, just look into both of them a little more. There's no hurry. You'll figure it out. All of that is part of the journey, any journey.
