When you're done with everything, the spiritual process begins

An excerpt from When You Are Finished with Everything, Spirituality Begins podcast by Sadhguru 
November 13 2016, emphasis mine.

Spirituality is like just about anything else in your life. Like in your life, when you're done with one thing, the next thing begins, just like that. 

When you're done with everything, spiritual process begins.

When you like, for example, to come to the basics of life, spirituality is very much like sexuality, in the sense, you are fourteen, and suddenly you know (audience laughter). Suddenly all those little things that meant the world to you as a child [inaudible] go to the dust bin, the teddy bears go to the trash can, and all the childish games disappear. Now suddenly you know. Just like that.

When a certain awareness arises in you, suddenly you know that little games don't satisfy you anymore. When you became fourteen, you thought what you were doing until then were petty things. Suddenly you know the big thing. When the big thing becomes a petty thing, now you're spiritual (more audience laughter). when this question begins to arise, why am I in all these little things, stuff like this? Then the spiritual process has begun.
