Question: Ambitions and being introverted in life

“brother, if a person is introvert not being social much…is limited in his student life. he has a bigger ambition, bigger dream as he not shows up in general. then suddenly one day he is introduced to gyan…getting advice and order to remain introvert. in the process his force of ambition which has become a much big plant as he didnt used it earlier…is much higher than the normal. to be more clear suppose one was spiritual from the beginning, so he got the vibes from others that “tech” is not for you. he soon felt the vibes of yes something lacking…now he want to go even ahead of normal..but what sould be the ambition? aim? why he should do it now? (as gyan explains truth does not need to be proved) …but still the “tech” part of him is not the truth. what should be his approach to make it truth not in terms of proving but to fill the space.”

Dear soul,

Thank you for your question!

Will try to follow your question the best I can. There are some things which may need to be clarified.

Being “introverted” in Spirituality does not have the same meaning as being “introverted” in life; that is being “shy.” Spiritual “introversion” means to clear the mind from emitting “noise.” That inner chatter. Those multiple personalities talking to “us,” so we can listen the “heart” rather than just others.

As mentioned before, “doing” is not the main goal for a spiritual awake person. It is “being.” In that sense many will “do” according to their level of awareness. Many times we are happy to listen to others, but we seldom listen to ourselves. Knowing is in that, once the inner “noise” is gone.

An ambition is a desire. Some may have this ambition to be “someone.” You can take the time and resources that life has given you to pursue that. Many find that once they reach those “goals” they are ready for something else, so their lives are a constant “hop” from goal to goal. They may say that their satisfaction is to go from goal to goal, that is jumping from one place into another.

For others, that is meaningless, for at the spiritual level we realize the importance of this time and to be awaken.

Therefore, that is the decision that this person in your example will need to make.

Our primary purpose usually is to find meaning in life. That can happen at the highest level once self realization is experienced. Our secondary purpose is the “doing,” the job, the work, etc. Once we understand this priority, things will fall into place by themselves.

Best wishes!
