It would depend on if there would be someone there to feel the responsibility in the firstplace.


The absolute truth of thought dwells in it's own absence.

And is there such a thing? Or is that only more of the illusion at play?

Within the realm of the Absolute, no, there is no responsibility. Infinite Consciousness/Stillness/God is self-fulfilled and already complete, so there is nothing to be done. 

But we exist as human beings (unless one of you is secretly a dog who uses a computer...). In this current form, you may contemplate the fact that this body only exists as it does because of the love of other beings. Your mother fed you and clothed you when you were helpless. Your friends were there for you in tough times. "Responsibility" is a human notion, but I do believe it exists. Taking care of others, purely for the fact that they are also God and you can ease their suffering, is a tremendous good. 

Now, this responsibility exists, IMO, with or without realization of awakening. It feels good to do good for other beings, which, as most of us know, are equally divine in their own form.

Another way of phrasing this ... Love is absolute.

Once you get realized as God you will see that God and Love are the same = You.

Enlightenment itself does not have a concept of responsibility.   But from it, I learned that I'm fully responsible for my life

OK, also true. 

Now let me win the game of those who beleive they are real different and who beleive in others. 

You know life.

As I understand enlightenment, no. Some enlightened people teach, and others do not.

Good luck with real and actual awake ning. 

Ask Leo does he ask himself same. 

Even if you do teach you are literally teaching yourself again (mindfuck) not just seeker.
