Do You Need a Spiritual Teacher? (The Guru Question)


Many people argue that you don’t need a spiritual
teacher, because true knowledge is already inside you. While that’s true, the problem is that you
don’t see the true from the false, you can’t see the diamonds among the pile of glass. They look the same, so how do you differentiate? There’s only one way, but it’s very radical,
so only a few people are prepared to do it. You need to burn away your whole mind, so
that the glass will melt away, and the true diamonds will emerge. The spiritual teaching is unlike any other
teaching. It doesn’t give you new knowledge, it simply
takes away all your false assumptions, beliefs and judgments. It’s a purification process, a kind of un-learning. The role of a spiritual teacher is to help
and accelerate this process, and not to spoonfeed you a new belief-system. I feel that those who claim that they don’t
need a spiritual teacher miss the essential quality of humility. If you’re not ready to radically open your
mind, to surrender totally, to become vulnerable, this purification process will never be complete. Whether you have a mentor or not, you have
to walk through the burning fire of truth willingly and with humility. Many times others see your faults much better
than you do. A spiritual teacher simply helps you recognize
these blindspots, he or she turns your attention to what you should know, and away from those
things that you only think you know. A teacher provokes you with profound questions,
to make you realize that there are things that you don’t know that you don’t know. And now that you know that you don’t know,
you’ll start to inquire. Imagine that you were born as a kitten, and
you were put into a bottle of glass a couple of days after your birth. Your parents put you there to keep you safe,
out of love and good intentions. As a kitten, you were still your true self,
because you could fit into the bottle comfortably. It all started very innocently. They put a label on the jar with your name,
and slowly you started to identify with it. They also mixed in their beliefs, unconscious
thought patterns, and general misconceptions about life, and as you were very receptive
you accepted these without any resistance. They taught you how to survive, they made
your bottle thicker, they helped you develop a strong ego. After a while, you started building up your
prison from the inside, by integrating more and more things into your personality. However, at the same time, they also fed you,
so your body started growing rapidly, and soon enough you became an adult cat. And with this, you created a huge problem
for yourself. You can’t break the bottle because its walls
are too thick, but you also can’t escape through its neck, because your body is too big. The walls of the bottle are pushing you from
every direction, they are resisting your growth, which creates huge pain and suffering. The same bottle that protected you now only
hinders you. That’s why you feel disconnected from the
world, unable to feel a true connection with anyone. Although you are already your true self, you’ve
grown up, you have everything you need within you, yet you don’t experience anything from
it. Now you’re just a cat stuffed in a bottle,
ugly and deformed, living under its full potential. Do you realize what a cruelty you’ve done
to yourself? Often, you don’t, you already accepted this
suffering as normal. You see, if a cat grows up living its whole
life in a bottle, it will look at the bottle as a part of itself. What’s even more misleading in this case,
is that the bottle is made of glass, it’s transparent. So it’s almost impossible for the cat to realize
that there’s a bottle in the first place. That’s how most people live their whole lives:
unaware that they are the prisoners of their own minds, totally oblivious of their own
egos. That’s where a spiritual teacher can help
you the most in the beginning. He can help you see your own bottle, he can
point out its nature so that you can discover it on your own. And when you realize how much suffering it
causes, you’ll be motivated to come out of it somehow. With that said, some egos are so torturing,
the walls of the bottle are pushing against the body so much, that the glass simply breaks
on its own. Some people are known to have reached liberation
without any teacher, even without any teaching or practice. This is possible, but very rare and unpredictable. So if you want to raise your chances and speed
up the process at the same time, I highly suggest you to seek the help of a spiritual
teacher. A teacher can easily see your bottle, because
he’s free from his own. Although he can’t break your bottle from the
outside, he can hand you a hammer, he can give you better tools than what you have now. More importantly, a mentor can also tell you
where to hit the glass, so that it breaks easier. Normally, you want to avoid the areas that
hurt the most, but those are exactly the places where the bottle pushes you the hardest, and
that’s where most work is needed. At first the process will be painful and hard,
but as the walls become thinner, your view will also be clearer. You’re chipping away off your ego piece-by-piece,
and with each hit your shell becomes weaker. With one final blow, the whole glass will
shatter, and suddenly you’ll be free from the constraints of your ego. You’ll be finally able to experience your
true self, and you’ll become your own spiritual teacher. In this free report, I’ll reveal my number
one secret to spiritual enlightenment that almost nobody else speaks about. Download it now below, to find out what it
is! I can guarantee you, you’ll be surprised! Memento Mori!

  1. I am just so happy to see you on here. You are truly spiritually awakened and enlightened soul. Please keep putting out the content unfortunately most people are into New Age nonsense these days and don't want to hear any truth about real spirituality. But we put that truth out there anyway for those who are ready to listen💕 and yes you are so right about people saying they don't need a spiritual teacher it is a huge thing I hear all over and it's total bullshit ! it's so egotistical. The spiritual aspirant must humble himself before a higher power or a spiritual teacher. I humbled myself and worship my Guru and was blessed with energy Transmissions from her that boosted me all the way to full Awakening. Jay mataji!🙏🙏🙏
