Nobody can answer this question, except you. You need to find out what your Divine Being wants you to do in life, so meditate, inquire, pray and ask for help, until you feel what is truly right for you.

Here are important things to consider:

From the FAQ on https://glorian.org/learn/topics/daily-life-on-the-path :

Where should I live to be truly spiritual?

Many students believe they should move to another country or leave the cities to live in remote places in order to become "spiritual." The reality is that your spiritual life does not depend on where your body resides in the physical world, but only on where your consciousness is from moment to moment. Gnosis is not found in physical locations, but in oneself. Study the teachings and study your self; that is all you need to perform the work. Furthermore, in these moments, those who are truly spiritual actively serve suffering humanity, and the best place to do that is where humanity is suffering, which is not in isolation in the wilderness. Serve humanity where you are, and work on yourself where you are.

Many enter the path and thereafter they no longer want to continue working in order to fulfill the needs of every good citizen. Those wretched beings neglect their duties towards their family, the world and their own selves. We have heard them say phrases like: “Money is vain,” “This is the world of Maya (illusion),” “I am no longer interested in the things of the world,” etc. This is how these wretched disciples fail because they do not know how to fulfill their duties. This is how these devotees of the path move away from initiation, precisely because they do not know how to fulfill their duties as simple citizens.

Our disciples will now comprehend why we stated that crime is also hidden within the incense of prayer.

The one who enters the path must first of all be a model spouse, a model father/mother, a model child, a model citizen, a magnificent grandson/daughter and a patriarchal grandfather/mother, etc. The one who does not know how to fulfill his duties as a simple citizen cannot tread the path of the great mysteries. Many disciples forget the good manners of a sincere and honorable gentleman/lady and become truly irresponsible and even dangerous individuals.

People that had never stolen became thieves of books and money when they entered the path. The younger devotees who enter the spiritual path steal books, or they borrow them and never return them, etc. Others cheat their disciples, they borrow money from them and thereafter they steal it, etc.

Under the shade of the word “fraternity” all the crimes mentioned in the penal code are committed. There are those who take other people’s money and allege that the money is for good deeds. There are those who criticize those who work, supposedly because everything is vanity, etc.

This is how devotees close the path that leads to the great mysteries to themselves.
