Still, the few available Gurus will convey initiations to those
who demonstrate persistent yearning and a willingness to do what the Guru recommends or
even directs them to do. Many people alive today are considered high souls even if they
have done considerable damage to their lives and nervous systems. Many have a
predisposition to higher consciousness which makes them strongly motivated seekers.
Another group of aspirants. which comprises about forty to fifty percent of those who
seek Gurus today, are "straight people." These people have developed socially,
mentally, and emotionally. They can be any age. Somehow they have bypassed the rampage of
self-destruction. They are capable of holding down a high-level job. They are more alert
about others and actively strive to relate to reality as a way of life.
