What you are asking is akin to asking how a movie ends, without knowing the beginning, or the middle, any of the characters involved, the setting, the genre, and so on. We are all eager for an "answer" to these subjects.
So my answer to you, from my own experience, is that the answer comes from YOUR experience alone. My words relating to MY experience have no meaning to YOU.
As I began this journey, I came across many teachers who spoke the answers as clearly as they could, yet I did not hear their words at that time. I realized that it was ME who needed to experience things myself to know what these "answers" mean to me. And only then could I "know" the meaning of their teachings.
The Deep Truth is that you and only YOU can answer these questions. I know this may seem like a copout answer, but it takes time and experience to learn to swim or ride a bike even though we are eager to master these skills. But likewise, when we eat a delicious desert, we do not wish to take the first bite only to jump to the last bit we swallow. We want to experience the deliciousness of all that's in between.
If you are sincere in your quest for the answers you seek, you will find them.
"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
