You can decide to follow a guru. However, when you do that you have submitted intellectually to another person. The moment you submit, you lose your independence. Now you are dependent for guidance on someone else. You have weakened your creativity. Your independence is snatched away. That’s what happens when you follow a guru.
Instead, you have a choice. Become your own guru. Observe things happening around you. Take moral lessons. Form your own theories. And to every theory add the meter of your conscience. Your life now assumes your own spirituality. It’s no more borrowed. Your thoughts feel like a free bird flirting with glee in the horizon of the low clouds. You have become your own master because your thoughts reside in the land of freedom.
Become your own guru !
