There is no age for the spiritual journey, as age does not always reflect the maturity of the spiritual mind. Belief in the divine existence of The Creator and all that The Creator has created progresses us on the spiritual path; while the ego is what prevents our spiritual maturity.
Ego represents itself as the “I” in everything we think, feel and do. It separates us from the rest of existence and creates an illusion in which one feels that by virtue of one’s individual actions anything can be attained.
The Creator has blessed humans with intelligence by which we can perceive everything and act accordingly. However, the spiritual being does not allow the self to be consumed by this intelligence and translate it into ego or “I”; it understands that “we” are all a part of everything The Creator has created. By virtue of The Creator we attain the outcomes of our karma and when we are truly deserving The Creator then performs miracles.
If we understand that in fact The Creator has created us and all else that exists then why do we worry? If all we can do is experience, perceive and act then why not try to experience and perceive that which is true, The Creator; all else is an illusion that is created by the ego. Why not act on that which is good, because what we sow we will reap by the virtue of The Creator.
With this mindset, we are able to be positive and spiritually surrender to The Creator. The kind of surrender that allows us to accept everything equally and remain patient, thankful, and constant; the kind of surrender that gives us spiritual growth and peace.
