As is my custom, I was sitting with my morning beverage today going through my morning pre-game ritual, as outlined in the post Exercise – Envision – Read – Meditate – Pray – Empower .

(Yes, I do consider every day to be a present in the game of life)

I was thinking about what messages I have received that would benefit you, the reader of this Blog Post.

Then, as if on cue, I was drawn to a conversation that I recently had with one of my great friends, Phil McGarvey, who had enlightened me to the wisdom contained in the teachings of Eastern philosophy. After all, I thought, wasn’t it three wise men – FROM THE EAST – who were sent to the stable in Bethlehem a couple of millennia ago. Phil and I had shared mind on the fun we would have at a dinner party with Ghandi and Rumi and modern day greats such as Jim Rohn and Neal Donald Wash. Throw in a few atheists such as Ann Rynd and the discussions might never end…

So, this Blog Post is a piece that keeps coming into and out of my life as I continue my journey.

Each time I read it I get new perspective.

Each time I read it, it adds nuances and dimensions to the relationships I have had and the relationships I am building.

I honor Sandeep Nath from the bottom of my heart as the original source for me of these in-sights and share it with you, dear reader, here for your own interpretation, reflection and growth.

Funny how it always seems to work that way. Co-incidence? I don’t think so!

🙂

So, Are you sitting comfortably?
Let’s begin:

Is Your Guru Really A Teacher?

🙂

What did he say?

A teacher takes responsibility of your growth. A Guru makes you responsible for your growth.

A teacher gives you things you do not have and require. A Guru takes away things you have and do not require.

A teacher answers your questions. A Guru questions your answers.

A teacher helps you get out of the maze. A Guru destroys the maze.

A teacher requires obedience and discipline from the pupil. A Guru requires trust and humility from the pupil.

A teacher clothes you and prepares you for the outer journey. A Guru strips you naked and prepares you for the inner journey.

A teacher is a guide on the path. A Guru is a pointer to the way.

A teacher sends you on the road to success. A Guru sends you on the road to freedom.

A teacher explains the world and its nature to you. A Guru explains yourself and your nature to you.

A teacher makes you understand how to move about in the world. A Guru shows you where you stand in relation to the world.

A teacher gives you knowledge and boosts your ego. A Guru takes away your knowledge and punctures your ego.

A teacher instructs you. A Guru constructs you.

A teacher sharpens your mind. A Guru opens your mind.

A teacher shows you the way to prosperity. A Guru shows the way to serenity.

A teacher reaches your mind. A Guru touches your soul.

A teacher gives you knowledge. A Guru makes you wise.

A teacher gives you maturity. A Guru returns you to innocence.

A teacher instructs you on how to solve problems. A Guru shows you how to resolve issues.

A teacher is a systematic thinker. A Guru is a lateral thinker.

A teacher will punish you with a stick. A Guru will punish you with compassion.

A teacher is to pupil what a father is to so.n A Guru is to pupil what mother is to her child.

One can always find a teacher. But a Guru has to find and accept you.

A teacher leads you by the hand. A Guru leads you by example.

When a teacher finishes with you, you graduate. When a Guru finishes with you, you celebrate.

When the course is over you are thankful to the teacher. When the discourse is over you are grateful to the Guru.

🙂

But don’t just take it from me…

You can tell Infinite Intelligence – Sandeep Nath, Phil McGarvey, Rumi and Gandhi sent you!

  1. Lovely post. I must admit, I love your morning routine, but can I ask what do you do on the empower side? Any particular activities that you do?

    The different between a teacher and a guru, is very striking. Although I believe, that we our own teachers and gurus and access both of them at different times.

    I’d say I’m in my guru stage. 😉

    Thank you!

      Yes, Chelsea, we are all self-made – but only the successful tend to admit it. And I agree that the ability to access them from inside ourselves at different times is a blessing. As to the question on empowering – that is where two disciplines come in – I keep a gratitude journal and I have a bunch of “I AM” s (some use the term afformations) . You see, it is about Empowering myself to be the best me that I can be, in gratitude to those things that brought me to where I am.
      Thanks for your contribution to my journey and I trust that our time together might have lightened your load somewhat. prp
