Gurus and Guides

You meditate everyday. How come you’re not peaceful all the time?

You’ve read all those books. You’ve listened to all those podcasts. How come you don’t know all the answers yet?

What would happen if we stopped flocking around those who seem to have it all figured out? What would happen if we stopped holding in such high regard those who seem to have everything under control?

What if, instead, we sought guidance from those who might know where the answers are?

We would have less polarization by the culture of “seek the gurus.” Less, “hey, you’re dealing with a serious problem. I too have dealt with serious problems. Sign up for my course, and not only will I solve your serious problem, but you’ll learn how to make $14,000 a week in passive income along the way.”

We would have more connection, empathy, and trust. More, “that’s a real problem you’re having. I can only imagine what it’s like. I don’t know what the answers are, but I can point you to where they might be.”

Just because you’re not a guru doesn’t mean that you’re not a guide.
