HOW TO FIND A TRUE GURU
what do you do when you have to buy a new car or a new home? I assume you do research, ask your friends for their opinions, and use your own knowledge to make the right purchase. Even when you buy a new phone or tablet, the decision is based on what you like, what’s available, and what suits your style, right? You select your life partner carefully, too. Would you marry a person you didn’t like from day one? So, since you have been choosing the most important things in your life based upon research and comfort, you will choose the Guru using the same model, right?
You will pick the Guru that you like. You will find solace in the Guru who makes you comfortable. You will seek out the Guru who matches your lifestyle. Not so fast. Finding a Guru bears no resemblance to shopping for one. A Guru is not meant to make us feel more comfortable. They arrive in our lives to push our buttons and ignite transformation. So we can’t go from place to place, looking for the “right fit.” when we decide that we are ready for a Guru, the best thing we can do is begin to work on our egos. The biggest roadblock to meeting a true Guru is the ego. Remember, you can think of ego as standing for “edging Guru out.” Take the Guru out, and the ego will walk in. Allow the ego in, and the Guru will walk out. The ego stops us from accepting the idea that someone with flesh and bones can teach us life lessons.
The popular phrase “A teacher appears when a student is ready” is absolutely true in this situation.
The ultimate truth is this: You cannot find a Guru. You can only let a Guru discover you. The only thing you can do is prepare yourself for the Guru’s discovery.
Try as much as you want. if you go out and search for a Guru, you may land at a place where your ego is fed. The title of this section is somewhat of a trick for your ego and shopping habits. Butt am not trying to deceive you. t just want you to have clarity. You are much too precious to end up in the wrong hands.
A Guru’s job is to make you a tough seeker, able to face any challenge in life.
When a Guru is alive, there is vibrancy. There is freedom and yet a management of the journey. A Guru lives in the present. The past and future are irrelevant to a Guru. Their solution to the same problem may change over time because the student’s energy, or even the world’s energy, may change as time passes, too. A Guru responds to the present moment, not to past information.

Spiritual Master’s (Guru’s) powerful
“If one doesn’t understand the hidden sense of a mantra, one will have to surrender to an authentic master.” It goes on to add that when it comes to making mantras work it is the guru who is the path.
