Look no Further for a Guru, Look Within

1. “The person we admire seems to have a different version of what life ought to be, what a good man is, how to live, and so on. If we are especially sensitive it seems more than puzzling, it is disheartening. What most people usually do is to follow one person’s ideas and then another’s depending on who looms largest on one’s horizon at the time. The one with the deepest voice, the strongest appearance, the most authority and success, is usually the one who gets our momentary allegiance; and we try to pattern our ideals after him. But as life goes on we get a perspective on this and all these different versions of truth become a little pathetic. Each person thinks that he has the formula for triumphing over life’s limitations and knows with authority what it means to be a man, and he usually tries to win a following for his particular patent. Today we know that people try so hard to win converts for their point of view because it is more than merely an outlook on life: it is an immortality formula.” Ernest Becker

2. “If your searching for a guru, well, then you are giving into the fact that your not good enough. The only guru in your life is found within. All other gurus are ones created out of co-dependence trying to get your own needs met externally, instead of internally. Just sayin!” EastWest Healing, Instagram Post
