The Guru is like a compass: it will tell you where the North Pole is and where you are in relationship to it, but it will not take you there. It sets up a relationship between you and your infinite consciousness so that you can have that guidance to follow in your life.

The Guru is like a pump that pumps air into a tire to make it useful. Once the job is done, the pump does not follow the tire down the road. But if the tire runs out of air again, the pump can be used again so that the tire can keep going. The Guru is a gas station that fills you with spirit.

Those who hustle and hassle and move and want, will not get anything. The time has come that you will have a meditative mind to wait and see what comes to you. Your mind will direct you to work towards the right channels. You will meet the right people. And our projection, which will give us satisfaction, fulfillment, and exaltation, is our nobility. We will act noble, gracious, kind and compassionate.

The Executive Mind is a Projective Mind. It moves actions and resources. A lot of people fail because they can’t or won’t decide things. They hesitate and lose the timing or become doubtful and lose the leadership. They will discuss things, shuffle papers, and plan. The Executive Mind decides in seconds. When you have difficult decisions, like a surgeon dealing with life and death, this mind is essential.

The unseen eye in you must see. It should see clearly through the fog, through the snow, through the rain. The rain of richness, smog of mental pollution, and snow of ego have to be cleared so that you can see where you are going.
1976 Kundalini Quarterly

The Cosmos works for those who have discipline, who have longing, who have some goal to reach in their lives, and who make a constant, constant, constant effort to reach it. That is dharma. Dharma is in every day, in every action, on every side of the day. Don’t waste yourself into the maya of this Earth.

The Guru is a store of technical know-how where you can go and get taken care of so that you are fit again to take up the responsibility of this planet. The Guru is the secret chamber of your inner self where you can confide your greatest secrets and be guided in the light of righteousness. Those who qualify according to these criteria are truly the blessed ones who have come to serve humanity and carry us through the times.

When you acknowledge your vastness, you have manners. Your mind supports your projection. If you have not established some vastness in your attitude, then your habits and facets, your fears and pettiness will betray you.

God is not what you think, God is not going to change things because you want to change things. There is a total little tinker in you called soul and when you do the prayer it is called concentrated computed code message to the higher Cosmos that is your orbit. You can change your orbit easily provided you understand you are part of Infinity and Infinity is part of you.

The Guru should take away your doubt and darkness. He should rekindle your spirit, and redirect you towards your goal. He should remind you what reality is, and keep you going toward that reality. He should remind you of your energy, and remind you of your life so that you can mind your own business and keep going. 
1976 Kundalini Quarterly

With this attitude established you can embrace life and feel the ecstasy of the creation with clarity, humility, and happiness.

There is no such thing which you cannot solve. Because once your meditative mind concentrates, it will always tune into the universal mind and everything in this universe is subject to the universal mind. So your odds will become even automatically but it takes you to develop in you that mind.

Without basic commitment there cannot be anything.

The more you experience your soul, the more you can merge in that Universality from which you came. That is why you have a Guru: so that you can know and experience your soul. It is the spirit of guidance that allows you to reach your destiny and become great.
1976 Kundalini Quarterly

Give this prayer with me: God, give me the vastness, the courage so I can be kind. Give me the strength so that I can serve. Give me the wisdom so I can be positive. Give me the nature so that I can be compassionate. I ask Thee in Thy Name to uplift me my soul so I can serve all in Thy Name.
