How often people worry about their unstable careers, incomplete education, and/or rocky relationships. Some people might regard these worries as attachment to the material world. Yet, if you are on the path of self-exploration and spiritual growth; you will see that the concern regarding these issues is not necessarily an attachment.
A spiritual person regards these concerns as steps to climb for spiritual escalation. The concern regarding this unfinished business means that there is spiritual work-in-progress that is demanding completion. When a spiritual person desires something strongly, then when that desire is fulfilled; he/she achieves a sense of inner completion; like a step has been climbed on the ladder of spiritual growth, and now that desire is closed.
So a Spiritual person always sees a desire as something seeking closure; because a spiritual person knows that with all these big rocks (desires) sitting on his/her back, he/she cannot climb the ladder of spiritual journey. It is said that if there are unfinished desires on one's back, the spirit will be re-born again to fulfill the incomplete desires; and each new birth may add on fresh more desires, so the game may never end.
One who has put himself/herself on a spiritual journey, knows he/she has to let go of these rocks. But the only way to drop them off is to go through the experience, and then automatically the desires evaporate because now there is no need to yearn for something not experienced.
One has to fulfill the desires, with an awareness that they are simply rocks to be dropped off on the way, and feel a sense of completion and keep moving onwards in life knowing the backpack is getting lighter and lighter as the unnecessary bagagge is being dropped off on the way. Some other senseless desires will not even need to be experienced, they will automatically fall away, as the spirit gains more and more freedom from others.
Finally, when all the unnecessary bagagge has been dropped off, one lives in ecstasy, in a spiritual dance, knowing that one can have anything one needs without becoming attached to it. Now the spirit is free and ready to return to the Source. It will continue living in ecstasy, in bliss as long as life is there; since now, there will be no difference in life and death, and the unknown beyond death. Now, one has reached Nirvana. Now, one is one with the Source. Now one is complete, and there is no unfinished business left to bring one back and forth in lives. The journey of millions of lives in now complete, and the soul has arrived home, its eternal home!
