But the “chela,” or student, must be ready to receive the blessing and grace of the guru. Many people are not ready for it and therefore will not feel it. It will be part of their spiritual entertainment and they will go from guru to guru looking for what they must first discover in themselves. They shop around and want to have special magical powers, as if the miracle of life on earth was not enough.
If you are ready, you will definitely feel the Soul-presence and even see the bright aura of your guru. This has nothing to do with amassing supernatural powers for yourself. It has to do with finding the ground of your being and the answer to your deepest questions.
You will know when your guru appears. Your guru might not even be a person. It could be a horse, a dog, or any animal that can teach you something about the nature of life, love, and peace.
