“When you’ve understood this scripture, throw it away. If you can’t understand this scripture, throw it away. I insist on your freedom.”
― Jack Kerouac

 

Is there someone you look to for answers? Oh I don’t mean a deity or abstract spiritual being. Nor do I mean being open to answers that come from others. What I am actually asking is if there is any one person or group of people who’s word you take as law. Is there a guru to whom you are a chela? Have you surrendered your freedom to him / her or has learning from this teacher brought you a greater freedom then you’ve known so far?
It seems that for most of my early adult years I was in a state of serial cheladom. I would adopt a teacher or they would adopt me (it’s not surprising that so many people feel that they have answers worth teaching. Beware of those who claim to teach much less understand absolute Truth with a capitol T tho. It’s not that they don’t have something worth teaching. In my experience, those who believe that they have found the ONLY way lack context and understanding how their way may fit into the greater whole. They are enslavers who will tie you to their path rather than help you find your own. It took me a long while to realize this tho the other lessons that came were a fair trade off.
In the long run, a true teacher sets you upon your path and frees you from theirs. Whether you understand it or not.
Blessings, G
