Guru’s Guidance


Last night I had a vivid dream. I remember seeing my Guru. He was seated infront of me, and i asked him one exact question that had been on my mind for too long and bothering me. I don’t remember the response, but does this mean that I’m being guided out of the particular problem by Him? That He has heard me?

Dear Friend,

Do you remember the question?

Yes, it would certainly seem that you are being guided. I am curious however for the fact that such a vivid dream and an important question that you don’t recall his response? That is very odd! Or, is it…….

It is common, however, that in the presence of the guru, the importance of one’s burning questions fades into simple happiness, joy, peace and the love of God through the guru. So perhaps your answer was simply: “love God. Attune yourself to God through your guru and all of your “questions” will be answered.” Not by the intellect but by the heart. The answer to all questions is the same: Love (peace, joy, etc.).

Perhaps this, then, is the guru’s response and message to you!
