Sorry for the lack of regular posting, but I’m in another of my deep contemplation periods, so there’s not really much to talk about on my end. I’ve been reading and thinking and meditating and trying to figure out where to go next, and at the same time trying not to worry about where to go next, because I’ll go where I’m supposed to go, and I can’t force progress or a journey or a path.
Anyway, on a similar note, today is Guru Purnima Day (so if you’ve got a guru, I wish you the happiest and most peaceful of celebrations). I don’t have a guru yet. A friend told me a while back when I was worried about not having a guru that a guru is a lot like a romantic soulmate – you can’t make that bond happen, but you can be open to it, and you’ll know when the time and guru are right for you. I imagine that advice would frustrate some people, but I felt that it gave me the permission to take a deep breath and stop worrying.
In the meantime, I can devote my time to God, and to finding and absorbing wisdom from many gurus. And honoring all gurus for what they contribute to the journeys of spiritual seekers everywhere.
