Gurus are like mountains, Society is like the plain settlements

mountains

Every guru is like a mountain.
The seeker is the adventurer,
Who ascends the mountain,
To reach its peak,
To the shrine of light.
He may then choose.
To bring the light down to the plains.

General society/civilization on the other hand,
Are like the settlements at the plains.
Society is a combination of maintenance and inspiration,
The inspiration/evolution/change/renaissance,
Is brought about by the seekers who ascend the mountains,
And bring down their light.

Experience is from relative fractal dual natured fields

The celebs IMPRESS (by the images/fantasy) – and the ones who deeply desire the CELEB fantasy want to die into their images and therefore become their fans and vicariously enjoy.
This is in the realm of “celebs and their fans”.
And the whole thing is a matrix.
…Celebs[Fans[Celebs – Fans[Celeb – Fans…]]]…
Every fan is a celeb, and every celeb is a fan.
Its all fractal in nature really, the EXPERIENCE of it.

Similarly there is:
…Guru – Devotee[Guru – Devotee[Guru – devotee]]]…
So every guru is a disciple, and every disciple is a guru, both are simultaneously true, but we can only see one at a time in our minds.
The experience of both is the same:
The Guru is facing south while the Disciple is facing north.

More examples:
…Tyrant[Oppressed[tyrant – oppressed[tyrant – oppressed]]]…
Every tyrant is a victim, and every victim is a tyrant = depending on which direction you look.
The experience of both is the same: One is facing south, One is facing north.

So which “relative fractal dual experience field” are you invested in?:
Celebrity – Fan
Guru – Devotee/Disciple
Tyrant/Oppressor – Victim/Oppressed
Master – Slave
Lover – Beloved
(every lover is a beloved, and every beloved is also a lover)
Admirer – Admired
Narcissist – Codependent
Teacher – Student
Manager – Subordinate
Seeker – Sought-after

Remember the rule for all the examples above:
“Every A is B, and every B is A” – depending on the direction you look.
A corollary that follows is:
If you want to become a master, become an extremely good student.
If you want to become a celebrity, become a deeply loyal fan.
If you want to be a ‘beloved’, then love everyone as intensely as you can.
And so on.

The guru is really your own higher self

Projectionoflight

The greatest pain (that I have experienced) is of separation and disconnection.
Whenever a person is connected, one can see a beehive around them, i.e. all the people attracted to that connection to source energy.
Everyone needs/longs for this connection to live/survive/thrive, and therefore everyone seeks this, they are drawn to all the conduits that transmit the source power.
So when a person gets firmly connected, his extent of connection determines the attraction gravity he/she sets up.
The more powerful their connection, the larger their energetic influence, and more the people sitting in their shadow and gravity.

The opposite is seen, when there is total disconnection, the energy/power then of the person is even smaller than their own body, they simply struggle to survive, hold their own coherence.
In transformation, one can be completely reduced to pulp approaching a total chaos of the creative force (it depends on the extent of transformation that is happening).
Buddha, Jesus, Krishna, Vivekananda, Lao Tzu and all the greatest spiritual teachers in history have had enormous connection to source power.

But the degree of connection visible is only the smaller part of the truth.
Don’t judge a work in its unfinished state, esp. when it has been dismantled totally into an incoherent chaotic pulp.
It only appears like there is no connection, but one is closer to the light than ever before and one is being DONE in its image. Being transformed, being resurrected, being remade.
The total unknowing, dark night of the soul where you are blinded (none of your instruments help in this terrain), makes you understand that it is not by your efforts (what you call ‘you’) that this transformation is happening.
Infact ‘you’ yourself are being remade by a higher power.
Really, everyone is looking for a conduit to grace/god/divine/…
When your longing is deep enough, it eventually(in time, as a journey) carries you to the greatest connection/wisdom.
Deeper the longing = Greater the transformation = Greater the power/wisdom/vision/inclusion = Greater the connection = Greater the transcendence.
The longing is the potential energy that will unfold into kinetic transformation/manifestation.
It is a process of ENFOLDMENT(longing, potential, seed sprouting) -> UNFOLDMENT(actualization, kinetic, tree becoming).
All desires are potentials, and their flowering are the trees.
It is from the ground of filth that the beauty of a tree emerges.
Both filth and beauty have their divine purpose and go together.

The outer guru, is a catalyst, the hope, the potential coming/appearing, the becoming, in manifest form.
When you meet your guru, you see your own potential in its manifest state.
Your recognition of the guru, is your inner recognition of your own higher self and higher potential/possibility.
That recognition of your own higher potential (projected as the outer guru) results in the surrender/devotion that follows.

All manifest is a projection of the inner experience.
The guru is yourself, none other than your own higher self appearing to you as the guru.
Your recognition of the guru, is your recognition of your own higher self/possibility/your own higher potential.
And the surrender/devotion/work that follows is the projection of your own higher self consuming/taking you/transforming you/absorbing you into itself.
