Question: Could it be that you are my guru?

“There is a well-known saying in India that when a disciple is ready, his or her guru appears. Don’t worry, when the time is right, you will feel the call. You will feel the grace of the master flowing abundantly in your direction. It will awaken your trust, which will allow you to get in touch with the places within you that are so challenging. Trust makes the integration of the ego possible. Surrender is not a phenomenon that occurs on an intellectual level. It happens within your heart. If you do not feel this grace flowing abundantly in your direction, it is because your guru has not yet been revealed to you. Don’t try to rush the river; it flows at its own pace. Remain calm. Everything happens when the time is right.
I am not demanding anything from you. You come here, sit and receive the transmission… If I am not your guru, I am your friend. One thing you don’t need to have any doubt about is that I want what is best for you. I am rooting for you. I wake up in the morning to see you shine. This is the purpose of my life.”

Hundreds of diverse seekers traveled the globe and sought him out in his unpretentious home to hear him. To all of them he gave hope that “beyond the real experience is not the mind, but the self, the light in which everything appears… the awareness in which everything happens..
