Hello “ordinary guru seekers.”
Question: Who has the possibility to meet an ordinary, unassuming guru?
Answer: Anyone who sincerely wants to.
Olivia feels a little cautious about this.
I love being a part of the guru seeking community that you’ve started. The problem with me is that I can be naive. If someone sounds intelligent enough I will believe what they tell me even if it is actually not true. My friends tell me that I am too gullible. How can I seek gurus to help me grow without taking bad advice? What tip can you give me on this?
Blessings to you, Olivia
If ten people approached you and told you that apples are poisonous and taste awful, and you should never ever eat another apple – would you believe them?
I am assuming you would say, “No, even though ten people told me that, I would not believe them because I’ve eaten many apples in my life and they are sweet tasting and are good for me.” Do you know why you would not be naïve enough to believe them? It’s because your very own taste buds have told you differently, and you decided to turn inward and ask the guru that dwells deep within you to give you advice.
Never place another’s mind above your own, Olivia. Whenever someone offers you advice of any nature, if it’s different than what is usual for you – take a moment to turn inward and notice how it feels. That is always a great start to letting go of your naiveté, Olivia. There is a part of you that is supremely wise – trust it when it speaks to you. Never let go of being curious, though!
Thank you for sharing and blessings back to you, Rob
What about the rest of you? Where have you been naïve and gotten burnt? With hindsight, can you see that you were being nudged by your inner guru to look at the matter again. Unfortunately you ignored your inner guru, didn’t you.
Blessings and love to all of you, Rob
PS – Speak to yourself of your dreams with the naïve enthusiasm of a child, but do not let that naivety carry you away when better judgment is saying, “Nay.”
