Guru Knows Best


I want to open my spiritual eye and also want to see guru in my spiritual eye. Is it possible?

Dear Roopa,

Your spiritual desires are natural to have. It is possible to experience these things, but you cannot force such experiences to happen with your will. It’s only the grace of God and the guru that can reveal them to you. Therefore, offer these desires to your guru, and then let them go.

Your guru knows what best for you and will reveal to you those experiences that you need for your spiritual growth in the right time.

The best thing that you can do is to practice your meditation with devotion, without desires and attachments, trusting that God and your guru know what best for you, and will reveal to you the experiences that you need.
