The modern meaning of the word ‘guru’ has come to represent a hyper egoic, self-branded, pseudo superhero. In its worst form is a polished personality selling an empty solution to making money or attaining your dreams.
We’ve become so sick of this though.
In the same way we have lost faith in mainstream media, lost trust in banking and become disenchanted with government, we have a sour taste in our mouths for big personalities selling snake oil.
My message for years has been that you do not need a guru – especially one of the really flashy modern kinds of late.
You just need to follow your own inner wisdom and create your own path.
At the same time, I still stand by this when I say, “I am your guru.”
In ancient times, a ‘guru’ was actually just a regular person who happened to be struck with the unfortunate luck of being a window to ‘God’. They didn’t have any special inherent value…they were just a transparent conduit for ‘spirit’.
We don’t value a window for the light that comes through it. In the same way a window is just a window, a guru was just a guru.
Thus when I say “I am your guru”, it is actually an affirmation for myself.
My aim with my work is to become transparent to inspired ideas and insights. For those things to simply flow through me, to you – my client. The only thing that blocks people from creating what they want are fearful thoughts.
My mission is to clear away those kinds of thoughts within my own head so that by doing so, the uninhibited flow of creativity through me can help and inspire others to experience the same.
I hope you get me now when I say “I am your guru.”
Whose guru are you?
