Gurus, Saints, Masters
While it is smart to be eclectic and open to the experience from accomplished people, one must be discerning.
Do not give your power away to anyone for no one else can experience the world for you—this understanding is also the source of great art.
If you feel aimless and lost, make finding your soul the priority; there is a way but no map for this journey; and, remember also that a true teacher unleashes creators not devotees.
Your post is deep.
How can one be discerning when feeling lost, aimless, or rejected?
The answer is self-discipline. Your needy ego is lost, aimless, or rejected, not your soul—which is immune to pettiness. The will to know firsthand is the key. Easy to understand, yet difficult to believe.
And, while there is no map, you need only move in a new and spontaneous direction for things to reveal themselves in good time. There are ‘ways’ but not ‘the’ way—this is a clue.
Relative patience is a virtue.
