Who Are Typical Seekers of the Guru?
The characteristics seekers today have in common with one another are the same age-old
marks of the seeker. Their world, however pleasant or unpleasant, has proven deeply
unsatisfying to them. Whether rich or poor, healthy or sick, man or woman, they yearn to
experience something more, something finer from life than the outer world in all its
glitter has been able to provide. They ache to find more meaning and purpose in their
existences. They dont want to play superficial games at the office or at home. They
want to cut through the sham and emptiness of their liveshowever successful they may
be materially and experience "X."
For some, "X" is God. Others have had a tragic or
insipid experience with religion; they are hostile to religion and the idea of God. They
often seek lasting fulfillment or self-esteem. Others seek to know their own soul in
self-realization. Others seek pure Spirit, the "Absolute Reality," or
ego-effacement in Nirvana. For some, "X" is transformation.
Most all true seekers are ready to change. They want to give more of themselves, to
love more. Their personal pain or emptiness propels them to seek wherever possible,
and as long as necessary, the satisfaction of the call of their hearts. Their world
proving at best incomplete, they are driven toward a finer life inwardly and
Seekers of the Guru cant be satisfied with small prizes or temporary pleasures.
Attentive students of life itself, they seek to solve the mystery of their existence. They
are determined to know, to experience, their
true nature and express it whatever that means. Highly motivated, they are
energetic, magnetic people who live with their long-term goals constantly in mind.
