Answer: Everything depends on the pace of life to which a person calibrates himself.
If you think about your spiritual ascents, the pace of your life will not seem tiresome, frustrating, or obligating.
You should make sure that your continuous work is concerned with your spiritual advancement. Everything else will come along, but only according to what you really need, which means that it cannot be ignored. And everything will seem very simple.
