Guru is never readymade. Guru, himself is an example of decades and centuries. Guru is not over night possible. Guru first master himself. Guru is always success and happiness free person, as his journey is a destination for him.
Real Guru never treats himself as God. Nor he allow you to treat anyone as God. Only guru shows path, nothing else.
To be very frank and honest with regular reader of this blog, I must write that Guru himself have no guarantee of heaven or God. How he can assure guarantee to you for God or heaven.
Real wisdom lies in what Guru says, do. Do not discuss what Guru had done. In case of real Guru, he will tale only what he does. But you cannot find such great level than follow formula of following his knowledge, not his attitude if it is full of double standards.
Real Guru is out of all super factious activities and exhibition of unnecessary action. He have nothing to do with proceedings which has no significant impact in life.
No one and nothing outside of you can give you salvation, or free you from the misery. You have to light your own lamp. You have to know the miniature universe that you yourself are.
With Real Guru illusions are bound to be shattered. Guru is there to shatter all illusions. Yes, it will irritate you, it will annoy you – that’s way of functioning and working. Guru will sabotage you from your very roots! Unless you are totally destroyed as a mind, there is no hope for you.
Guru would never tell you what to do. But he would give you the knowledge with which you could decide what would be best for you to do.
Observation and expansion are two elements of meditation. While a teacher may guide you to have the right posture and give instruction on following the breath, no one can teach you about the experience. It comes through practice and patience.
In my eyes, real Guru has following qualities.
- Applied knowledge
- Enlightening wisdom
- Innovative ideas, application of ideas and results of those ideas.
- Local and global acceptance
- Always on tomorrow, focus, positive and hope
- Self less
- Most loving and warm
- Inspirational mood after his influence
