Contemplation – Day12

There are more fake gurus and false teachers in this world than the number of stars in the visible universe. Don’t confuse power-driven, self-centered people with true mentors. A genuine spiritual master will not direct your attention to himself or herself and will not expect absolute obedience or utter admiration from you, but instead will help you to appreciate and admire your inner self. True mentors are as transparent as glass. They let the light of God pass through them.

Through spiritual understanding, I follow the divine wisdom available in every moment of my life.

How appropriate! It is ONLY personal spiritual understanding that we can truly rely on when we are in search of the truth. No one can tell us what the truth is, we must discover it for ourselves.

I know a lot of disappointed people who feel that they were lied to. I grew up during the socialistic regime in Hungary. We lived in at a time when – similar to how it was displayed in George Orwell’s 1985 – facts were altered to fit the political climate. Everybody lied. Some lied to stay alive, some lied for personal gains. I knew one thing for sure: I could not trust anyone with the truth. However, many people tried to navigate in the sea of lies but found themselves disappointed at the end. 

I got lucky. Because of the way I grew up, I never looked for the truth outside of myself. It is a rather challenging way of living when you make all your decisions by trial-and-error, but I knew that I can only trust my own experiences. 

It is the same with me and the Divine. I do not trust what I am told about God or the Divine, or what is written in holy books. I know God the way I feel IT. My understanding of God (the Divine) solely stems from my inner personal experiences as part of the energy that we call God or the Divine. 

As long as we listen to someone else’s understanding of Spirit, God, the World … anything, we will find ourselves disappointed and misled. In my observation, we all experience our existence and everything in it through our own senses, our own individual perception.

I also noticed that true guides only show up after I have carved the beginning of my own understanding of matters. They support me to keep myself aligned with what I already know.
