But all I know about him is that he came to India when he was going through a low phase in his career and later suggested Zuckerberg as well.Both found success in their career after their visit.(correct me if i'm wrong)
The question is,'was he really an enlightened soul??'Whenever I think of a spiritually enlightened person,images of Buddha,Mahavira,Vivekananda come to my mind.Enlightment is the last phase...it's the state of bliss and that requires years and years of penance...
Maybe he was spiritually aware,he had the knowledge and that's why as you say he remained aloof,he practised the concept of detachment,he stayed in a smaller house,had great concentration leading to his phenomenal success.
You mentioned that he was cruel,I think it's relative...for someone he might be cruel to others he might not...
And you mentioned that emotional stability is the ingredient of spirituality..I be to differ from u,I feel it's the end result,the final product of spirituality.
Actually by what I read he came to India when he was still in college. He stayed here for almost eight months but couldn't find the guru he was searching for. He laid foundation of Apple much later so I'll conclude that it is a common myth (to suit the ego of the people) that he came in and India when he was going through a low phase in career. That low phase of career came later.
Yes he slept on mat and his home was barely furnished because he was perfectionist and findi furniture for his home was no small feat. But otherwise yes, as compared to other CEOs he lived in a relatively smaller house.
No he was actually cruel at times, it is not relative word here. Many people have mentioned this about him. And there is a difference between being detached and being outright cold and hurting people around you.
I didn't mention it as a fact, I'm rather asking, is emotional instability an attribute of spirituality? Since u said u think it is the final product I'll like to hear your view regarding the same.
