Retiring from the search for Truth is much harder than retiring from a job. When I reached the age of retirement the choice was made for me and I knew all my working life that this was going to happen.When I retired from my job, I began dropping the identity of a working professional person but I still had the identity of being a “seeker” which had always been the more important identity to me anyway.
The process of retiring from the Search began almost exactly the same time as my retirement from my job. I didn’t realize that retirement from the Search was part of the process so I didn’t have years to prepare for this phase. Being a “seeker” has been my identity for over 35 years, so when I drop that….who will I be?
