Q: Guruji, if all of us are Gods anyways, then why do we need a Guru?
Sri Sri: Ok tell
me do you want this answer? Why do you want this answer? Will you accept the answer I tell you? That means you have already
accepted me as your Guru! Ask your self why. Because there are certain question, which comes to your mind, and you don't have
an answer for, you come to someone who you think knows. That's your Guru. The one who answer your questions is your Guru.
There could be two reason why you may not need a Guru.
(A) You are already enlightened and you have all the answers to
(B) When you are too inert like a stone, then no question comes to your mind. But when there is intelligence,
the questions come. It comes from discrimination (viveka). You need a mirror to see your own face right? You cannot see it
on the pillar or on the wall. You only can see it on the mirror. The Guru is that mirror who shows you your true self to you.
Guruji's Knowledge Sheet: Annihilate Conflict
When you are in a harmonious environment your mind picks up any
excuse to be in conflict. So often small things
are enough to create big
turmoil. If you have a conflicting environment you tend to seek harmony
... Have you noticed
Ask yourself this question: Do you seek harmony in every situation or
do you seek to widen the differences and
prove your righteousness?
When your survival is at stake, you don't complain that nobody loves
you. When you are safe
and secure you start demanding attention. Many
people create conflict in order to get attention.
The seed of negativity
and the tendency for conflict in you
can only be annihilated by Sadhana. --- "What is sadhana? It’s a committed
prayer. It is something which you want to do, have to do, and which is being done by you. … Sadhana is self-enrichment.
It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring
out your best."
