Answer: It doesn’t matter. Everyone lives this way until something inside “skips a beat” and a point of connection with the Creator appears within the person. From this point, the person begins to ask: “What for? Why?” Nothing in life is experienced needlessly—you have to go through all of it. Everything happens under the direction of the upper Light.
You begin your journey toward the Creator from exactly the moment you were awakened. So continue forward regardless of your age or any other circumstances. You always have the opportunity to think about this work, to read something somewhere, to listen to something.
I assure you, if you fill your free time with ways to remain in contact with us (and through us, with the Creator), everything will work out for you. This I promise you.
