We discussed two key practically implementable things over the last two days:
- Humanize the divine
- Divinize the mundane
The concluding masterstroke here, is that there is only one point where both of these intersect and juxtapose.
That sacred point, is the Guru.
Finding it difficult to speak to an idol on your altar because he doesn’t talk back? No worries, because the Guru is a living idol.
The Guru is also the mundane like us, flesh and blood, a part of the elements. And hence divinizing him, to Him, is only a shift in mindset.
In the Guru, humanity = divinity.
