Self Realization at work becomes possible if we had the knack of indulging in contemplation (chintan) all the time. Self realization demands indulging in spirituality as per Bhagavad Gita! And spirituality demands indulgence in contemplation (chintan) all the time.
No worthwhile progress on path of spirituality or self realization is possible if we do not master delicate art of contemplation (chintan). There was no shortcut method of indulging in spirituality that leads to state of self realization other than contemplation.
Self realization is bestowed on mankind as a byproduct of indulging in spirituality, nishkama karma way of life. When a seeker all the time worked like a trustee, caretaker taking care of things that all the time belonged to God Almighty, at the end of journey is bestowed with self realization.
Self realization is the end product and indulgence in spirituality the path.
I started my indulgence in spirituality six years of age. Even while walking, jogging, swimming, studying and indulging in sports I indulged in contemplation to solve queries within.
After completing studies I entered my parental business of foundation engineering. Even while at work, even during most intense business meetings I indulged in self realization, indulging in contemplation most of time. This became possible only after I demolished my ego to zero.
From the very beginning of life six years of age I worked like a trustee, an instrument in hands of God Almighty doing his bidding all the time. Mastering art of nishkama karma yoga, I always indulged in karma with an unattached attitude. I was never attached to fruits of karma performed.
Mastering art of contemplation, nishkama karma yoga proved very successful. In the wee hours of third of August 1993 at 37 years of age I finally realized self, realized god forever.
