ecause God is omnipresent, everything that shows up in our life is a way the eternal has shown up in our worlds to give us whatever it is we are to get out of the situation. The same is true of the mystical teacher except his or her sole purpose in our life is to be the instructor on the inner path. In other words the guru is the way God has chosen to manifest in your world to help you realize that you are one with God. This is also a reminder that the teachings of the guru are the words of God.
“As soon as the student is ready to go to the ends of the earth to meet his guru, the guru magically appears.” Parahansa Yogananda
In his book Autobiography of a Yogi Parahansa Yogananda told a story about how he magically met his guru Sri Yukteswar. He had seen him before in a dream and magically met him when the time was right. When I met my teacher Mr. Ambrister he came into my world exactly one week after I said to myself that I need a teacher to explain more about my meditations.
Let’s examine this more. How can this be used in everyday life? What if one already has a teacher or is not even on or headed to this type of path? Why is this important? What does the teacher represent? I will answer this question with another statement where we change the wording just a bit.
As soon as you are ready to do whatever it takes, your desired situation magically shows up. (The teacher represents the desired situation)
I have a new cell phone. The speaker stopped working within days of having it. I like to use speaker phone when I am driving with my business so I don’t need to hold a handset. I took it in to Sprint and they tried but said they could not fix it. They gave me a replacement twice. Neither replacement phone would work at all. The second time they said to call corporate and ask for a whole new model. They said I will have to bug them and ask for a manager and then keep bugging the manager.
I gave up and started using my phone without the speaker phone. I started using ear devices when in the car and did not like them. Finally, I said to myself “I am going to call Sprint right now and they are going to give me a totally different model with a speaker phone that works. This is ridiculous I need my speaker phone. I don’t care who I have to talk to I am not accepting no for an answer.” Right then the phone rang. I was in the car, and something told me that if I tried the speaker phone, it would work. I turned on the speaker and it did. It has been working ever since. I was reminded that. . .
As soon as the student is ready to go to the ends of the earth to meet his guru the guru magically appears, or As soon as you are ready to do whatever it takes to have your desired situation. It magically shows up.
My being ready to do whatever was needed made my desired situation come to life.
ind yourself a teacher that can show you how to meditate on the cosmic vibration, travel to the higher regions within yourself, and get the answers from within. Once you can travel within sufficiently, have the sights of the invisible, and understand what you are seeing, you learn the rest from God within.
