AND of the the GRANDFATHER PROJECT: WHAT YOUR GRANDFATHER SHOULD HAVE TAUGHT YOUR FATHER ABOUT THE RULES OF MONEY Brown Bag Lunches
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 🙂
THE TEACHER AND THE GURU
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 and Rumi sent you!
For myself, I hope that today’s post has, in some way, encouraged you – Dear Reader – to consider what it is that you are intended to receive from your teachers AND your gurus. Both have their place, and it is a wise person who understands the difference.
